The Cody Rivers Show was...AWESOME!


This weekend was Kuh Ray Zee! The Cody Rivers Show rolled into town with their two man sketch comedy show and a fleet of loyal fans marched in droves to the theater to greet them. Unfortunately on Friday night, for their first show, Mike (pictured in blue) was horribly sick and not able to make it to the show. Andrew (in red) showed up anyway and along with Curious Comedy cast members Stacey Hallal, Bob Ladewig, and Craig McCarty from they put on an impromptu improv show that knocked the socks off the audience. 
Saturday night Mike was back in good health and he and Andrew combined their powers to form the 2 man sketch show known as the Cody Rivers Show. It was incredible. From synchronized monologues to full blown conversations on opposite day to time traveling radio interviews, their show blew my mind for an hour straight. And then, they did a scene where two chair made out. Weird. But awesome. 
Sunday night they did a make up show for the people who didn't get to see them on Friday and their fans proved just how loyal they are by coming out on Oscar night to see the true Cody Rivers action. 
It was a great weekend and a lot of fun. We certainly hope to see them again sometime soon.

Are YOU HERE Yet?


Our new sketch show, Are We There Yet OR Don't Make Me Turn This Country Around, debuted this weekend. It's really great! You should have seen it! If you did see it, you and I are now best friends! If you didn't see it, don't fret! You still have a chance to become my best friend. You could come next weekend, or the weekend after that! You could even come three weekends after this week, but my offer to be my best friend will be off the table. It will still be a funny show though.

Also this weekend is the Cody Rivers Show. Friday and Saturday night they'll be performing after Are We There Yet? They are amazing and if you miss your chance to see them you will never be able to forgive yourself. You don't want to live the rest of your life like that, do you? No, some come on out! We've got great comedy and ladies...we've got a really cute bartender.

Shoshinz 2

Seriously, Check out Shoshinz on their first ever American tour (West Coast). They put on one of the most entertaining shows I've seen in a long time. Full of beautifully choreographed dance and movement pieces and genuine, hilarious comedy. It's cute and mezmorising. You have to see it to believe how wonderful this show is... not to mention how wonderful these two ladies are in person.
The Curious Comedy Theater wishes Yanomi and Kuronatsu good luck on the rest of their tour!

Woweee!


What a weekend we just had. Shoshinz, the female japanese duo, graced our stage 3 times and wowed us with their hilarious physicality. Without saying a word they had us laughing through their whole show. Being the fan of classic slapstick that I am, I was excited to see that this style of humor could still get big laughs in a time where stand up comedy and sex jokes dominate the comedy scene. 

If Shoshinz was the only special guest group to join us this week we would have counted ourselves lucky. But we had the extra bonus of watching the Liberators explode in our theater. There shows are always high energy and exciting. We can't wait to have them back!

If you feel like you missed out on a great weekend don't worry because we've got another great one coming up. This week we are debuting our next great sketch comedy show, Are We There Yet? Or Don't Make Me Turn This Country Around! We tested a lot of the material out last week and the audiences really liked it.

Also, keep your eyes on this blog for upcoming information about the Cody Rivers Show coming in a few weeks.
