I bet if we had a time machine and could go back to the early 1800s and show a bunch of Native Americans a video of 30 people standing in a semi-circle in an office surrounded by cubicles clapping because one person nominated another person to be employee of the month, they’d be like “Yeah, ok, you can take our land, it’s worth it.”

Here we go folks!
You heard about it from The Comedy Bureau!
You head about it from Laughspin!
You heard about it from Rooftop!
You heard about it from The Toledo Chronicle!
The inaugural Green Gravel Comedy Festival is less than 2 weeks away!
There will be almost 20 shows over 3 days featuring amazing comedians from all over the country like Jackie Kashian, Kevin McDonald, Ryan Singer, Mat Alano-Martin, Junior Stopka, Kristy Hartsgrove Mooers, Alex Carter, Dan Umthun & many more!
I’ll be doing 2 shows during the festival:
Friday night at 11pm at Bumblebees I’m doing the Green Graveyard with Martin Morrow, Matt Champagne, Julie Bane and David Phillips! Get your tickets here!
Saturday night at 8pm at Bumblebees I’m doing The Bomb Shelter with Julie Bane, Mike Lebowitz, Peter Banachowski, Casey Crawford, Brandon Ream, hosted by two of my favorite people Luke Ritter and Ryan Solomon! Get your tickets here!
Note: The Bomb Shelter is a stand up comedy show that I created 2 years ago with one of my best friends John Eide. Well, John does comedy in Chicago now and I do comedy in New York, but our friends back in Des Moines have kept the show going and building and it is now one of the best stand up shows in the midwest. I am so fucking honored to do The Bomb Shelter, with this lineup, at this festival!
