Jamie Lee is Making Waves!

It is huge honor to be compared to Tina Fey and Jamie Lee has earned that honor. Last week an article from Coveteur had an in depth interview with Lee about how she got started, the show Crashing, and women in stand up. It was a refreshing read to hear this strong role model and how her hard work has gotten her to where she is. But most of all the optimism for the future of women in comedy. We are proud to have this lady on our stage any time! Congratulations Jamie!

Kurt Braunohler Makes the World a Better Place

Everyone should have a friend like Kurt Braunohler. He lives life to entertain himself as well as complete strangers. His stand-up philosophy is “Inserting absudity into strangers’ lives to make the world a better place.” He applies this to his personal life too! He hired a sky writer, then had a party on a roof top so all his friends could read it. It read “How do I land?” Here is a picture just in case you don’t believe it.

Kurt Braunohler has many more silly stories that can be heard on Not Too Deep with Grace Helbig.  Come see him do incredible stand up live on October 25th to 28th at Comedy Works Downtown in Larimer Square!
