Second Shift Comedy Tour @ SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show (The East Room) 5/17/2015

Second Shift Comedy Tour
Justin Golak & Laura Sanders
www.secondshiftcomedy.com

While most of us are grinding away, Laura and Justin are day drinking and trying to make themselves giggle. It’s their job, they say. The audience is the boss, they say. They clock in with a hastily scribbled set list and close bar tabs to clock out. So are they comedic dynamos on the upswing, or simply unemployable? That’s all up to you. After all, you’re the boss. Apparently.

Justin Golak hails from Cleveland and resides in Chicago. He’s recorded two popular comedy albums (“Influenced” and “Rosemary’s Baby”), and features in clubs throughout the Midwest. He’s been named a Person to Watch by Columbus Alive magazine and has been a featured performer in the Cleveland Comedy Festival. He once ate two boxes of Velveeta Shells & Cheese in one sitting just to prove that he could–he had to pretend that it made him sick to his stomach.

Laura Sanders, of Columbus, Ohio, pretends she’s not a graphic designer by day. She’s been featured on Fox’s LaughsTV, and featured in such acclaimed lineups as Chicago’s Comedians You Should Know, LA’s Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen, Wilmington’s Cape Fear Comedy Festival, and New York’s She Devil Comedy Festival. She recently changed the name of the dog she’s lived with for four years just to “f*ck with him.”

Three Nice Boys Comedy Tour @ SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show (The East Room) 5/10/2015

5/10/2015 6:30pm: Three Nice Boys Comedy Tour: Joe McAdam, CJ Toledano, Charlie Bury & more at Spiffy Squirrel Comedy Show at The East Room https://www.facebook.com/events/1581180998760525/

5/10/2015 6:30pm: Three Nice Boys Comedy Tour: Joe McAdam, CJ Toledano, Charlie Bury & more at Spiffy Squirrel Comedy Show at The East Room https://www.facebook.com/events/1581180998760525/

Three Nice Boys Comedy Tour

Acclaimed Los Angeles & Chicago-­based comedians Joe McAdam, C.J. Toledano, and Charlie Bury are three nice boys. They’re also stand up comedians that have written for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, created award-­winning comedy pilots, and appeared at festivals like Just for Laughs Chicago. This trio of goofs have joined forces for a two week tour of the Southeast, entitled the Three Nice Boys Comedy Tour.

Throughout early May, the Three Nice Boys will travel from Missouri, through Kentucky, Tennessee to New Orleans and back, bringing a triple­-decker lineup of endearingly off kilter stand up comedy from three of the country’s most exciting (and friendly) stand up comedy boys.

Joe McAdam began his comedy career in Chicago in 2007 and developed a unique voice in the city’s thriving stand up scene. His act of tightly constructed yet absurd jokes, mixed with improvisation landed him at multiple festivals including Just For Laughs Chicago, The Chicago Comedy Expo and Crom Comedy Festival. McAdam has since moved to Los Angeles where he produces a monthly variety show at Nerdmelt called The Wheel Show. He has also made an impression online with remote video pieces at Gathering of the Juggalos, The Exxxotica Expo, comic book conventions, and concerts. Most recently he has co­written and acted in the sitcom pilot “Cowards” that received the “Best Comedy” prize at the 2014 New York Television Festival. Hire him quickly as he is balding.

C.J. Toledano is a stand­up comedian and writer who has been a staff writer for “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” (nominated for a Writers Guild Award), “The Onion News Network,” and the script intern at TBS’s “Conan.” Most recently, he served as the head writer for MNet America’s flagship show, “Danny From LA” and writes for IFC’s social media accounts, which includes the official Twitter account for Will Ferrell’s character “Eric Jonrosh” on “The Spoils of Babylon.” His other television work includes being an on­air correspondent for E!’s The Soup spin­off show “The Soup Investigates,” which was also hosted by Joel McHale. In 2013, he was also named a finalist of Just For Laughs Montreal’s “Set To Screen TV Pitch Contest.”

In addition to his television work, he has toured as a stand­up comedian, regularly opening for the likes of Bo Burnham, Joel McHale, and as part of the midwest leg of Todd Barry’s “Crowd Work Tour.” In 2013, he was named a New Face at Just For Laughs Chicago, and has performed at The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Crom Fest, and The Riptide Comedy Festival. Currently, he can be seen touring clubs and colleges (NACA West 2013 participant) all over the country.

Originally from Chicago, C.J. is a proud alum of The Second City Conservatory and was a cast member of the longest running independent showcase, The Lincoln Lodge.

Having said all that, I, C.J. Toledano, wrote this myself and I suck.

Charlie Bury is a Chicago based comedian with a flair for the spectacular. Unapologetically silly, Charlie seamlessly blends magical elements into his act to create an atmosphere of illusion and enchantment, often leaving audiences spellbound. As a two year cast member at The Lincoln Lodge, Charlie opened for national headliners & participated in the 2013 Just For Laughs festival (Chicago). In addition to performing around the city at venues like Zanies and Second City’s Up Comedy Club, Charlie served as a writer for the Late Live show, a late night style talk show that has since relocated to Los Angeles.

SPiFFY SQUiRREL is Nashville’s only truly independent, underground professional weekly alt comedy show. Featuring touring comedians from all corners of the earth, plus outstanding local regulars who are worth paying attention to. Sundays at 6:30pm at The East Room for just $5 cover.
