Imagine if you will a world where alternative comedians are black and black comedians do alternative comedy. Have you fallen down a rabbit hole entering a world of mayhem and absurdity? No. You've just found yourself in 2016 where black people are actively redefining "black people." So sit back and enjoy while we welcome you…to the New Negroes.
"New Negro" is a term popularized during the Harlem Renaissance to imply an outspoken intellectual departure from long-standing racist ideology and institutions.
Created by Brandie Posey & Sam Varela, Picture This! is a wildly funny and innovate comedy show where well-known established comedians and popular up-and-coming comics are paired with some of the most talented animators and cartoonists working today. Each comic is paired with an animator and when the comedian begins their set, the artist draws their hilarious and unique interpretation of the set, which is projected behind the comic for the audience to see. The comics have no idea what the animators will be drawing, which heightens the experience for the audience and adds a completely new element that has not been done in live stand up before.
These Things Matter Live Taping
Pop Culture, Autobiographically.
Join hosts Kevin O'Brien and Taylor Gonda as they talk to guests and each other about pop culture and its never ending impact on our lives.
These Things Matter is built on the concept of High Fidelityism – the belief that pop culture can change your life. No reference is too obscure, no genre too highfalutin. Join Kevin, Taylor and a panel of guests as they wade through movies, music, comedy, television, video games, toys, books, comics and more!
Comedians face off in series of one-on-one rap battles -- totally freestyle, totally improvised. The audience decides the winner by applause at the end of every round, until we have one final champion. It's like 8 Mile, but funny.
Past competitors include Reggie Watts, TJ Miller, Childish Gambino, Thomas Middleditch, Pete Holmes, MC Chris, Nicole Parker, Megan Amram, and like a billion other people.
Half stand up, half game show, Uncalled Four is an interactive crowd experience. Comedians write a deck of 20 terrible/hilarious answers to audience questions like "What does Trump's hair smell like?" or "Dad went out to buy _____ and never came back." Comedians each submit a card while we give out a prize each round, then fan reaction determines the winner. After 30 minutes, comics can wager points in the final "Degenerate Gambler" round to see who will be The Worst Person.
