Upright Citizens Brigade (get a ticket deal through ComedyDurham!)

Hello my dears, this is the time you reap your benefits for following ComedyDurham.com and going to all the shows and whatnot.  The glorious Carolina Theatre of Durham is offering you a discount to the Upright Citizen’s Brigade show on October 5!

Now I know that I normally promote stand up, but improv is also near and dear to my heart.  When improv is done at a truly professional level it’s bust a gut funny.  The Upright Citizens Brigade has birthed some of the greatest names in comedy.

UCB alumni include:  Amy Poehler (founding member), Matt Walsh, Donald Glover, Kate Mckinnon, Aziz Ansari, Ellie Kemper, Zach Woods, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, Aubrey Plaza, Nick Kroll, and Ed Helms!

Needless to say the UCB Touring Company is not a thing to miss!

The ticket offer is for 25% off the standard ticket price when you use the code IMPROV. Tickets can be purchased online via Ticketmaster.com, carolinatheatre.org, or via the main box office.

See you there my fellow improv enthusiasts!

Friday 4/20: Minori Hinds + Brett Williams + Deb Aronin

April 20th Minori Hinds at the Monkey Bottom Collaborative.  $7 at the door. Show at 8PM, doors open at 7PM. (Poster here)

Find it (with a little luck) at 609 Trent Drive, Durham NC

This show features Brett Williams on her adorable ukulele and hosted by (me) Deb Aronin.  Minori is on her way up on the comedy fame scale.  Comedians make a point of seeing her perform and she’s been praised by the likes of Todd Barry and Janeane Garofalo (she’s opened for both of them).

The Monkey Bottom Collaborative is where the Beaver Queen after party takes place every year, and it’s a little off the beaten path. I’d be lying if I said it was super easy to find, but it is worth it.  There’s a sense that you need a password to get in, like a speakeasy (the password is “Fidelio”).  This is sort of like a little secret show.  I wouldn’t want to miss that, so you shouldn’t, either!

New shows, old shows, TV Shows
