Comedy Trivia Deathmatch: “First Blood”

COMEDY TRIVIA DEATHMATCH is trivia captained by comedians. Come fight for the title in this hyper-interactive comedy gameshow!

How it works: The audience splits up into two teams. Each team has a pair of comedian captains who must harness the smarts of their team members (that’s you!) and give the final say on answers in order to win. Five unique rounds of trivia will determine who walks away victorious!

The inaugural show (“First Blood”) features the team of Daniel O’Connell & Daniel Desrosiers going head-to-head against Mo Chomko & Kevin Lyons!

CTD returns every 3rd Wednesday of the month.

Let’s Not Make This a Thing: Spring Fling!

I’m back! Did you miss me?
Don’t answer that.
Anyway, I got another great show for you! Comedy and weirdness from:
Cory Nealy and Val Bush!
TL Devaney!
Evelyn Jensen!
Zak Nelson? I think? I’ll think of something.
And of course the effervescent and glamorous Bhama Roget!
I know you got $5, so just come to the show and forget about all the horrible mistakes you’ve made for at least an hour! It’s a bar so you could really stretch that out if you like!
If you don’t show up I get sad and punish everybody around me!

The Tipfield Hour

Brittany and Matt, America’s favorite late night talk show host couple… are no longer together. However their contract with The Tipfield Hour is still binding, so lucky for you, the show must go on! You’ll still get that great variety of local comedians and musicians, and Matt and Brittany will still be there with that endearing banter you’ve grown to love, they just won’t be behind the same desk anymore and there will probably be some bitterness behind that banter. Come see The Tipfield Hour and you’ll laugh, smile and reflect on the sad realization that not even a loving relationship can last forever but a late night talk show can last longer than it should.
