I love this video the LA Review Books made so much!! They did such a good job capturing what we’re all about. The footage is from the awesome SURPRISE! 2-year anniversary show, and features Ron Babcock and Kristen Studard being hilarious, plus some sweet shots of Johnny Pemberton, Cornell Reid and Identity Crush. Oh and the interview was really fun to do, watch all the way to the end because Rob does a great bit after the credits.
Comedy veterans Rob Buscemi and Sofiya Alexandra are the founders of a brave new comedy circuit in Los Angeles. They change venues each time, they keep their line-ups secret, and they lure their audiences in with booze, cookies and a promise that things will get weird. There may or may not be an orgy at the end of each show.
The show is called Surprise! Comedy and at its heart it’s about what Buscemi and Alexandra call taking the “scene-y-ness” out of L.A. comedy shows. They say the Surprise! format relieves pressure on both the comics, who don’t have to promote the show or feel the need to impress to earn a spot back (they might be invited again, but not for a while) as well as the audience, which doesn’t pin its hopes on a headliner and meanwhile gets to kick back and enjoy a party.

Seriously, come to this show Saturday, it’s a brand-new comedy reading show Doug Mellard and I are starting. It features LA’s best comics reading and riffing on unintentionally funny things - anything from bad books, ads, and song lyrics to diaries, love letters, eviction notices, etc.
