The last SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show at The East Room 10/30/2016: Mary Mack (CONAN), Tim Harmston (Letterman), Cam O’Connor (Bob & Tom), David Heti (Just For Laughs), Chad Riden & more special guests TBA.
Folk Humorist Mary Mack performs her sometimes-musical comedy at festivals, colleges, clubs, casinos and anywhere you can find a llama or a buffet line. She has acted in cartoons, weird student films, and commercials that urge you to buy food for your hamster. (Mary is totally FOR feeding your hamster.) A favorite on radio shows and podcasts around the country, including Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast, The Bob and Tom Show, and American Public Media’s WITS, Mary played the leading character Dylan on Fox’s new late night cartoon Golan the Insatiable, season one. Her voice has also been heard in the cult favorite Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Mack’s comedy (spotted with occasional mandolin or clarinet outbursts) has been seen in the Vancouver Comedy Fest, The Andy Kaufman Awards, Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, and the San Francisco Sketch Fest as one of “The Dozen” up and coming headliners designated by the festival. She had her national TV debut on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and NBC’s Last Comic Standing.
Tim Harmston was only a year into his career when he won Acme Comedy Company’s 2003 Funniest Person in the Twin Cities contest. After winning, a well known headliner said to him “You’re kind of like an idiot, but with smart material”. That winning combination has led Tim to appearances on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, the Bob and Tom radio show, and Wisconsin Public Radio. Tim has performed at the Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival, the Great American Comedy Festival in Norfolk, NE, and the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta.
Charismatic, relatable and honest to a fault, Cam O’Connor is one of the hardest working young comedians in the Midwest. In a relatively short period of time, he has opened for Kyle Kinane, Stewart Huff and Doug Stanhope, and was the touring opener for Ryan Singer and Jarrod Harris on their “Organic Comedy Tour.” The twelve-state “Organic” tour, which celebrated underground comedy scenes across the country, was filmed for a documentary that is scheduled to be released in 2014. Cam was recently a finalist in both the 2012 Funniest Person in Cincinnati competition and the Bob & Tom All-Star Contest. A native of Indianapolis, IN, Cam is the creator of Rocketship Comedy, a series of stand-up showcases that are quickly becoming a preferred destination for many of the most respected names in comedy.
David Heti has pleased those picking talent enough for JFL42, Hell Yes Fest (NOLA), Dark Comedy Festival, Cleveland Comedy Festival, Halifax Pop Explosion. He teaches a course in comedy writing and a bit of history and philosophy at McGill University. he opines on issues of comedy limits and theory from time to time on radio and television (such as CBC), in print and in person at conferences, fests or colloquia (e.g. re questions of dark comedy and Holocaust humour). David has written for VICE and The Comedy Network. Heti also has two tiny cousins.
Chad Riden is America’s Favorite Comedian Of All Time.
