Myq Kaplan comes back to Durham! Don’t miss it!

He completely KILLED last time, make sure to make it to this encore event! Ok, not an encore six months later, but you’ll love it.

Buy Tickets $10/$12

MYQ KAPLAN announces the release of his 4th comedy album NO KIDDING out FEBRUARY 17 on ASPECIALTHING RECORDS. On his follow up to ‘Small, Dork and Handsome’, Myq unleashes some spot-on impressions, the wittiest of wordplay and thoughts on drinking, sex, family, money, drugs, Nicolas Cage, psychic predictions, kids and back to drugs again. While ‘No Kidding’ is pure Myq’s comedic style, fans may notice an evolution in that style as he ventures into more long-form comedy. As the Boston Globe notes in a recent review, “his act isn’t just a series of one-liners anymore.” Pre-orders available now and February album release shows announced.

Myq Kaplan is a comedian who already has three outstanding comedy releases including his debut album ‘Vegan Mind Meld’ which was one of iTunes’ Top 10 Comedy Albums of the Year. On TV, he has made appearances on the Tonight Show, Conan, the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Seth Meyers, his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents special and his special “Small, Dork, and Handsome” is available on Netflix. He’s also appeared on America’s Got Talent and was a finalist on Last Comic Standing. Myq hosts the podcast “Hang Out With Me” where he hangs out and talks with humans in ways that are meaningful, fun, both, or neither.

Comedy Night with Dave Stone

Sunday, January 8 at 106 Main  8PM

106 E. Main st. Durham NC



Dave Stone is coming for his super festive Holly Jolly Tour.  Dave’s is maybe the hardest most dedicated comic around. Early in his career he moved to LA and lived in a van in order to devote all his time to comedy.  THAT’S commitment. It doesn’t hurt that he’s funny as heck.  His first TV appearance was on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He now tours with Craig Ferguson regularly and co-hosts Boogie Monster, the paranormal podcasts with Kyle Kinane.

His stories are relatable but still strange. He talks about everything from being a southern gospel disc jockey to living in a van. As one of the ORIGINAL Beards of Comedy he never disappoints an audience. Don’t miss out!

Featuring the sit down comedian himself, Leo Hodson. Also featuring Josh Rosenstein and Deb Aronin and a surprise guest!

Check out some video clips of Dave below

Respect the Road Comedy Tour and Challenge October 9

Click image for larger version.

Hey there kids,

Respect the Road Comedy Tour and Challenge is coming our way Sunday, October 9 at 8PM. at 106 Main in Durham. Tickets just $7 bucks!

Comedian Reid Clark, Meredith Armstrong, and Jordan Bench are three comedians traveling across the country documenting their struggles and participating in challenges on the road to amuse and amaze you.

They will film themselves doing things such as performing without pants, hitchhiking all dangerous like, and inverting all gatorades in a Wal-Mart.

Also you can help Reid get a new testicle.

So who are the comics?

Meredith: A style of comedy that will simultaneously delight and disgust. Her experience both as your favorite neighborhood slut (her words) and traveling ER nurse have provided her with a unique and interesting perspective on human interactions. Meredith will take you on a journey that will make you laugh, cry, and probably do that thing where you wince and groan at the same time.

Jordan Bench: Originally from Sammamish, WA but now a transplant in Wilmington, NC. He’s hosted at the Cape Fear Comedy Festival two years in a row and has opened for comedians like Eddie Efft and Ron Funches. If you enjoy comedy that will make you question why you left the house then Jordan might be a comic for you. He dances like everyone is watching.

Reid Clark: the HEADLINER. A five year comedian with appearances all across the US. He’s worked with Fortune Feistier, Alonzo Bodden, Neal Brennan, and Trevor Noah at Dead Crow Comedy Room in Wilmington, NC. He was a joke writer for Orlando Jones. And written, directed and performed for music videos that have been in festivals and Funny or Die. Also a bunch of other really great stuff.

Reid gave up his right testicle for comedy. No, really.

His comedy has been described as dark, blue, and political, with elements of musicality and improvisation.

Once again this is at 106 Main in Durham. That’s both the location and the name of the bar. Tickets are $7. Check out our shows page to get tickets. Or buy them from Deb (me) in person! OR go check out 106 main in Durham and buy one directly from them.

Andy Woodhull: A National Local Treasure

Because he is. Andy Woodhull is one of the best comedians out of Raleigh ever. He’s been on Conan, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and Live at Gotham. As a nationally touring comedian he’s performed everywhere, but he always comes home to the Triangle. It’s hard to say who loves him more, audiences or local comics.

Seriously, ask a Triangle comic how they feel about Andy Woodhull and you’ll see what I mean. Of course I can’t convince like he can himself. Check out his bio, order his album and watch his videos here: About two years ago, Ryan Singer was hanging out at Motorco getting ready for his first show in Durham. Andy was there with him and from that evening we’ve been trying to organize a show at Motorco together. At last our schedules match and the show is on. Tuesday night at 8PM Tickets here: Tickets

The feature act of the evening is Adam Cohen. Adam is a co-founder of the successful Dangling Loafer comedy series in Raleigh. Not only is he a great comedian, he’s a fantastic artist and animator. Take a look at Band Candy on youtube!

Raleigh comedian Kenyon Adamcik will be doing a guest spot. Kenyon is one of the funniest comics performing in the Triangle right now. He’s also one of the youngest. So don’t buy him a drink at the show.

Tuesday, July 26 at 8PM see ticket link above. Be sure to buy your tickets in advance and save a couple dollars!

News & Observer

Today a fantastic article came out in the N&O about the Triangle comedy scene. It mentioned yours truly and I’m truly honored. It also mentioned Adam Cohen, Stephen Hamlett, and other comics in the area who find a way to create a stage when there is none. That sounded a lot more schmaltzy than I meant it to.

The indispensible Craig D. Lindsey has been a champion for local comedy for years. He’s written articles for the shows at Motorco Music Hall, he’s written about the Bulltown Comedy Series at Fullsteam Brewery (back when the loverly Virginia Wallace was hosting) and now he’s written about the DIY spirit of Triangle Comedy. Yes, I used caps.

Craig asked to interview Adam Cohen and myself for an article on the local comedy scene. We met up at a movie theater before a midnight showing of “The Siege.” I talked about all the relevant comedy stuff I could think of at 11:15PM and then watched a strange and violent film from the 1970s. It was a fun evening. I told him I was doing a show at this guy’s apartment. He actually hosts shows in his apartment. It’s not everyday that you invite someone to a person’s apartment for a comedy show and they say yes.

I encourage you to read the article yourselves as it is a fine tribute to local comedians. Also I love Craig’s writing and would encourage you read his stuff any chance you get.

The next Motorco show is Andy Woodhull (who’s mentioned in the article). He’s a local favorite, in that he’s a local comedian who is absolutely loved by everyone. He is also VERY successful. He was the first comedian to appear on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He’s appeared on Conan. He was on Live at Gotham. He’s a professional comedian. And if you’ve ever been to one of the shows I’ve produced at Motorco Music Hall you know that I never disappoint.

And you can find tickets to Andy Woodhull here

Thank you to all who’ve supported not just the comedy I perform and produce but all local comedy. We don’t really make anything doing this, and it’s the love from the audience that makes it worth it.
