The LA Hip Tip

Poster illustration by JT Wilcox APRIL 29, 7:30PM and 9:30PM, The Hollywood Musicbox, 6216 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles: Reserve your free tickets now for Mash Up, a Comedy Central Presents live TV taping. Featuring stand-up by Matt Braunger, Hannibal Buress, TJ Miller, and Kumail Nanjiani, this show will be shot by Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Vogt-Roberts referenced this project in our recent interview with him here, citing that the final product will be a Blerds-style production, with sketches and shorts interspersed with live stand-up. As for this leg of the production, you would be remiss to not reserve your free tickets for what is going to be a rip-roaring stand-up comedy show starring four poised-to-explode comics.

SNL Alum Joe Piscopo to Feature Local CHI Comics on New TV Variety Show

Tonight is the first of two scheduled showcase auditions for Joe Piscopo's proposed television variety series After Dark with Joe Piscopo, happening at the Joynt, 7 p.m. Eight local comics will vie for a feature spot on the series, scheduled to begin filming January 11. Tonight's showcase is already sold out; the next show will be December 29, and advanced tickets are highly recommended. You can purchase those tickets here. Tonight's line-up will feature Jim Flannigan, Michael Palascak, Prescott Tolk, Emily Galati, Joe Kilgallon, Michael Aaron, Joe Red, and Joe Kwaczala.

Show producer Fred Farris at Key Management has this to say regarding to the proposed television series: "There are major networks interested but there hasn't been a deal inked as of yet. If/when a network picks it up they will determine how many episodes will be put into production. There may be additional stand-up comedy audition showcase shows next year depending on what happens."

After Dark seeks to include artists from all genres of entertainment, including music, comedy, theatre, and film.

A short interview with Farris can be seen below.
