Saturday November 10th,
6:00p @ The New Movement:
The Green Team

What duo makes more sense than Laurel and Hardy? Maybe one without a fat guy sporting a Hitler ‘stache. The point is that Ariel Greenspoon and Rob Gagnon combine together to form an explosive comedy phenom. With many trinkets in their sketch comedy pockets, they will show you exactly why The Green Team can never be stopped. Not even by some dumb thing like the Vietnam war (we’re looking at you Smothers Brothers).

Rory Scovel, Cyrus Cooper, Chris Trew, Matt Ingebretson

From San “After hearing Dilation, Rory Scovel’s debut album, you’d probably love to take a road trip with the guy. Being fitfully entertaining with a spry charm to his tone, Scovel’s disjointed observations are amusing and enjoyable to listen to.” Rory has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham”, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, John Oliver’s New York Standup Show, & CONAN on TBS.

Disco Box (Austin) + Machine A (New Orleans)

Machine A is what happens when time meets fast forward, when acting meets improv, when characters meet given circumstances. From New Orleans improvisers and actors Cecile Monteyne and Chris Kaminstein comes a form that happens.

Disco Box is that lovable improv troupe featuring the comedic stylings of G-Su Paek, Aaron Walther, Christina Parrish, and Ariel Greenspoon.

Sean Patton, Dane Faucheux, Adam Cayton-Holland, Jake Weisman

From, “Standup comic Sean Patton’s looks, voice, and wild energy have drawn comparisons to a young John Belushi, but this rising comedian’s style is all his own. Patton developed his standup on comedy stages in New York, Los Angeles, and across the country; was featured on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham”; and performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. He was featured as one of the “New Faces” at the 2008 Montreal Just for Laughs Festival. He currently co-hosts the weekly show “Comedy as a Second Language” with Chesley Calloway at Kabin Bar & Lounge in New York’s East Village. And in June, Patton recorded his standup comedy album at NerdMelt in L.A. The album will be released in September on A Special Thing Records.”
