Held2gether

The Magic Meathands and Held2gether team up!

This Saturday, I’m performing with the Magic Meathands at the Mary Pickford Studio. It’s our Tag Team Comedy show where Held2gether kicks off the night. Improv comedy (that means we make it up but in a really funny way.) Come on out and have some laughs.

Show starts at 8 PM, tickets are $7.

RSVP on Facebook, if you like.

A Pair of Silly Saturdays – November 12 and 19

November 12 with Jump Start

The Magic Meathands (of which I’m a member!) have two shows coming up that should satisfy every comedy need known to science.

First is a family friendly show suitable for audiences of every age. We’re joined by the improv comedy group Jump Start for a $7 show ($3 for kids 12 and under). Jump Start is from the Beach Cities area and is directed by Julie Martin.

November 19 with Held2Gether

Second is our Tag Team Comedy show with our special guest Held2gether, Darren Held’s improv comedy group based in Long Beach. This show is rated Late Night, so you might want to leave the kids at home. This show is also $7.

Both shows start at 8 PM and are at the Mary Pickford Studio, 8885 Venice Blvd., Los Angeles 90034, through the generosity of the Mary Pickford Institute.

If you’re on Facebook, you can check out details of each show, RSVP, and invite your friends to join you for the fun: Family-Friendly Show w/Jump Start on November 12 and Tag Team Comedy w/Held2Gether on November 19.

Two Improv Comedy Shows for Memorial Day Weekend!

The Magic Meathands (with me!) are performing twice this weekend in two special team-up shows for bonus laughs!

Saturday night, we’re at our old stomping grounds, The Spot Café and Lounge in Culver City. We’ll be joined by Held2Gether, an improv group based in Long Beach, for a tag-team show starting at 8 PM.

Sunday night, we debut at The Talking Stick in Venice for a very FREE show! Yes, that’s right! FREE! It’s so FREE that I have to use all caps whenever I type it! We’ll be joined by Darwin’s “A” Team, all the way from the faraway nation of Victorville, California. Plus, comedian Ahmed Bharoocha! And even musical accompaniment by Bob Mitchell!

I tell you, there aren’t enough exclamation points in the world for all the exciting aspects of these two shows. (See? I ran out.) Hope to see you at one or even both.
