Tuesday, November 13th 2012: Giggles comedy night

9PM TONIGHT (no cover):

Don Stahl‘s Giggles returns to The Grand Victory tonight, with the following guest comics:

  • Zach Broussard, from hus UCB Comedy bio: “Zach Broussard is originally from the dirty bayous of Louisiana.  This little Cajun made the move to New York City in 2007, and has been performing comedy ever since.  Broussard has studied improv under Zach Woods, Gavin Speiller, Shannon O’Neill and Kevin Hines and sketch under Kevin Allison of The State.  As a stand-up comic, Broussard has performed across the country, most recently at the New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival.  He’s written for various sketch shows in New York City, directed original videos for Comedy Central’s Atom.com and even contributed some gems to the Onion News Network.  At the UCB Theatre, Broussard can be seen wrestling in the UCBW and as an actor on his maude team FAMBLY.”
  • Brent Sullivan: “Brent Sullivan, a 25-year-old New York City-based stand-up comedian, describes his act as a true interpretation of himself on stage. Full of dichotomies, he most appreciates being described as ?gay — but not gay.? Brent has honed his act around a variety of themes that all fit within the typical gay American life, but without the stereotypical attitude that plagues most gay comedians. His hysterical, unique approach and refreshing take on conventional gay issues promises to bring gay comedy to a new level of mainstream acceptance.”
  • Emily Heller, from her bio: “Emily Heller is a comedian and writer who likes you very much. You may have seen her on the third season of John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show on Comedy Central, or as one of the New Faces at the 2012 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. In 2011, She was included in Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch, won Rooftop Comedy’s Silver Nail Award, and was named one of the “Funniest People in Town” by 7×7 Magazine.  Praised in San Francisco for what her friends call her “self-deprecating feminist slob poetry,” Emily now lives in New York City and performs stand-up all over the country.  In addition to regularly photoshopping her head onto celebrities’ bodies, Emily cohosts the podcast Baby Geniuses with Lisa Hanawalt, as well as popular stand up showcases The Afterlife at the Sidewalk Cafe and Fresh Out! at UCB East.  As far as nicknames, she prefers ‘Hell Bone.’”
  • Nick Turner, from his Comedy Nerds bio: “Nick is one of hardest working comics in NYC.  He’s got his hands in everything.  He does stand-up (hosting one of the longer running shows in the city), sketch (with a bunch of folks including me sometimes), makes online videos (for College Humor amongst many others)  and he even appeared in a promotional video with Stephen Baldwin.  Have you been a promotional video with Stephen Baldwin?  No? Then Nick Turner wins!!!!!  Nick makes everything he works on better and is comedic talent that needs to get unleashed on the world.”
