Welcome from the land of many weekly audio updates! This week’s big news is little in quantity but large and girthy. There’s more news just beyond the horizon like a murderous infantry of barbarous Huns, so steel your britches and gird your loins for the informative onslaught!
We here at the S&M Comedy Compound, home of the PhoenixComedy.org Podcasting Studios, have some serious thanking to do. A very special thanks goes out to Chris Bennett for having us on his very last Arizona-based comedy show this past Saturday in the side room at Stand Up Scottsdale. The room was quite packed for a terrifically well-rounded lineup, and Steve Maxwell and Chris Bennett appropriately stole the show as the room filled up with audience members for the late show in the main room with Thai Rivera. Aaaaand…
Hot stuff is happening outside, so get inside and enjoy a cool, refreshing S&M Comedy Podcast!
On today’s early summer edition, we proudly present to you our conversation with local comic Charlie Speez! We first met Charlie just a few months into our comedy journey, one fateful Monday night at The Turf.
Whoa! Another S&M Comedy Weekly Audio Update, whizzing right past your head at dangerous speeds! We have only a few things to get to this week, but why dally and prolong this wretched experience for all of us? Let’s get right down to the brassiest of tacks ready to pierce your tender flesh with sharp, pointy information!
Time for another adventurous roadtrip podcast from your intrepid PHX Comedy “reporters!” This week, we’re proud to bring you our interview with NY comic Paul Hooper. As you’ll come to learn from this delightful conversation, Paul began his comedy career some 15 years ago at the Comedy Zone in Charlotte, NC, and rapidly excelled to touring feature status before taking off for NYC to continue this ever-winding, ever-lengthening road we know as standup.
What a quick little blog post we have to wave in your face this Wednesday! *wagglewagglewaggle*
We are here to celebrate the passing of the first ever S&M Comedy Presents First Friday Comedy at Lawn Gnome, or as it was billed on site, “Steve Marek & Friends.” Ah, we never get tired of that. Well, Steve does, but fuck it. It’s funny.
Quick blog post time is right now time! It’s probably safe to say that spring is in full swing, and the busy bees are a-buzzin’! We have a cavalcade of exciting shows coming up, so let’s get chronological up in here!
Woohoo! The return of the REAL S&M Comedy Podcast, all up in yo faaaace!
This month’s podcast features our conversation with the Denver-based Ben Roy. We first met Ben when Steve opened for him at Stand Up Scottsdale earlier in 2012. Steve hit it off right away with the affable Mr. Roy in a conversation about music and dividing time between bands and comedy stages, and our interest was piqued when we discovered that he chose to live in Denver instead of L.A. or New York.
It’s a regular plain ol’ Wednesday, so it must be a quick S&M Comedy blog post time!
We have a new update to the website! You’ll notice across the top, acting as a healthy little piece of organic non-GMO slice of sprouted wheat bread to the Sanderson-Marek sandwich, a brand new tab called “PhoenixComedy.org.” PhoenixComedy.org is a place for new comics, out of town comics, and local comedy fans to stay abreast (teehee) of all the myriad stand up, improv, and sketch venues & artists around the valley. We’re trying to get the word out about shows that are altruistically developing local talent into something beautiful, not places with two drink minimums, bringer shows and advertising budgets. Check it out, and if you see a show that’s not on there that you’d like listed, send us a NICE email WHEN YOU’RE SOBER at firstname.lastname@example.org.
