I’m back from some of the best five days… ever. The North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival rocked. Groups from all over North America came to showcase their talent. Richmond, VA was proud to have three troupes and a ComedySportz team representin’. Check out the professional photos from photographer Kevin Thom.
A lot of awesome and hilarious things coming up in the next few weeks, so keep checking back.
Here are some things you should check out in the meantime:
All for now.
Yep. Forget the FACTS is back with another awesome episode bringing YOU opinions and bits, NOT facts. Check it out.

All for now.
Alright. So I won’t be getting “nakie” next week, but I will be making people laugh. A lot. That’s right folks, on Wednesday, February 18th, 2009 my two thumbs and I will be hopping in my Volkswagon Rabbit and driving approximately 2.15 hours to Carrboro, North Carolina for the 9th Annual North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival (NCCAF, formerly known as the Dirty South Improv Festival).
This is a huge honor for me and I couldn’t be more excited. I was totally pumped to have a, what I like to call, warm-up, performing in the Richmond Improv Festival in both May and November of 2008, but performing at NCCAF is something I have dreamed of for a long time.
So, if you are within, oh let’s say, a two hour radius of Carrboro/Chapel Hill, NC, you should make the trek down/up/sideways to see me and over 500 other amaaaaazing improvisers from all across the country, AND CANADA!, perform. Some of these improvisers I have looked up to for a long time, and to have the opportunity to share the stage with some of them is truly going to be the experience of a lifetime for me.
These are the times that I will be performing:
Thursday, February 19th @ 10pm w/ MADE of BEES: Made of Bees performs fast paced, aggressive improvisation. With just one suggestion, these improvisers thrust you into a world of bold characters that are guaranteed to give you a comedy buzz. Made of Bees: improv that stings.
Friday, February 20th @ 11:30pm w/ iProv: iProv: the completely musical improv experience, is a show dedicated to all things melodic! Join our talented troupe of musically-inclined improvisers as they explore a wide variety of games and jams where the music, scenes, and especially songs are all based on your suggestions! You’ll go home humming a tune that didn’t even exist only moments earlier!
**Both performances will be held at the DSI Comedy Theater. I hear the theater has a pretty hunky owner, too.
Here are some other amazing shows you should check out while your down there: Jill Bernard‘s Drum Machine, The Beatbox, MISTER DIPLOMAT, The Josh & Tamra Show, MC Chris, SNL’s Bryan Tucker (who hails from Richmond, VA!), and of COURSE fellow Richmond team FULL CONTACT IMPROV!
It is guaranteed to be an awesome week full of hilarity. So, I better see you there.
