Greetings from the new standup show: FOLLOW THAT!
Follow That! is in residence at NerdMelt Theater and pits LA’s best comics against the saddest videos on the web. The result is a one-of-a-kind standup set that fuses each comic’s best material with spontaneous, hilarious and ultimately uplifting revelations inspired by the "cry videos."
They say tragedy + time = comedy. FOLLOW THAT! takes ‘time’ out of the equation. LA’s top comics take the stage to watch the most emotionally challenging viral videos on the web - for the first time - in front of a live audience. These are the viral videos that make us cry, leave us speechless and sometimes even scare the hell out of us. Most comics would consider these videos “impossible to follow”, but the outstanding comics of FOLLOW THAT! are up for the challenge. After the video disturbs, dismays or disrupts the you, audience, each comic gets 8 minutes to bring us from tears of sadness to tears of laughter.
The twist is, that you decide which video each comic has to follow. Will you choose a softball, or will you go for the gut-punch?
Featuring Jackie Kashian (DorkForest Podcast), David Gborie (Conan), Iliza Shlesinger (Fallon, Kimmel, etc), KP Anderson (Head Writer/Showrunner of the Soup), and Jay Mohr! Hosts: Jason Webb & Valerie Tosi
