If you haven’t heard… HOLY FUCK, the little neighborhood comedy show that could, is RECORDING A FUCKING ALBUM! Good gravy, are we excited.
Forty-two of our favorite comedians are booked on four consecutive shows — January 15, January 22, January 29, and February 5. All shows will be recorded in their entirety, but some of the sets will be cut down (and if the comic wishes, removed completely), so please, come out and see the real thing, and help us record a piece of history!
We have the lineups locked down. Solid. But before I announce them, please read this. I am quite often guilty of worry and overthinking, but I think this is important to say:
There are 42 comedians on this album. That is a lot of comedians. However, that is not anywhere close to the amount of great comedians in Los Angeles. It is not our intent, with this roster of 42 comics, to show the LA comedy scene in its entirety, but to provide a snapshot of what LA has to offer. You might not see your favorite comic on the show, and if you’re a comic, you might not have been asked, but that says absolutely nothing about you or anyone else’s abilities as a comedian, or our desire to have you/them on the show.
I legitimately feel bad we could not put more comics on this album. I love so many comedians in this town, both for their work and for their personalities, and I just wanted to take this moment to make sure that you, and the rest of the world knows how we feel. We plan on making another compilation, and another. We would put everyone we think is funny on if we could. This album, we decided we wouldn’t have anyone on who wasn’t living in LA and a part of the show within the first year of the show existing. And even within that boundary, we couldn’t get everyone on we wanted!
This album is for the LA comedy scene. We truly hope you agree. We want the rest of this country and world to see what amazing comedy and comedians this city has to offer — from the famous TV-actin’, well-known type of comic all the way down to the young idiots no one’s ever heard of. And yeah, there are way more great comics than we could fit on this album, and yeah, it fucking SUCKED trying to pick which ones we’d have, but in the end, we’ve got a great sample of the huge population of great performers and writers in this town, and we know you’ll agree. Do come out, say hi, and have fun with us.
Now. WITHOUT FURTHER ADIEU! Here are the lineups for the cd recordings:
Tuesday, January 15 // 9pm
Tuesday, January 22 // 9pm
Allen Strickland Williams
Tuesday, January 29 // 9pm
Tuesday, February 5 // 9pm
The lineups are subject to change, but they won’t change much. Hope to see you out at the shows!
