Who’s Got The Best Fake College ID? CONTEST

faber_college_eric_stratton_id_cardWe like funny stuff here at Crackers Comedy, so we’ve decided to run a monthly contest starting of course, on April Fools!

If you don’t know this already, Thursday nights are always college night! Which means if you RSVP online and show up with your college ID, it’s only $5 to get in. EVERY THURSDAY. And the coolest thing, is we don’t care WHOSE college ID it is. Hell, you can make one up. And we encourage it.

So, we’re going to take a photo of you and your college ID on Thursdays when you come in so we can start a collage of the most insane and ridiculous college IDs we can find. They will be on display for everyone to see. *If you’d like to participate for the monthly prize.

We will pick out our favorite at the end of the month, and the winner will receive a $50 gift card to spend at Crackers Comedy Clubs.

Let’s get creative!!!

Crackers Comedy Club Broad Ripple Presents David Alan Grier

Crackers Comedy in Broad Ripple is excited to present David Alan Grier from Thursday Feb 13 – Saturday Feb 15. This is a special event, so, we’re not taking discounted tickets. However, we will be having some giveaway contests so be sure you’re following us on the social medias.

Theater, television and film dot David Alan Grier’s past, and his ability to excel in all three mediums is a testament to the man’s inherent sense of comic timing. In October 2009, Grier released his book (co-written by Alan Eisenstock) “Barack Like Me: The Chocolate-Covered Truth,” in which the comedian discusses politics, culture and race while recounting his own life story.

Trained in Shakespeare at Yale, Grier began his professional career on Broadway as Jackie Robinson in “The First,” for which he earned a Tony nomination in 1981. He then joined the cast of “Dreamgirls,” and later went on to star opposite Denzel Washington in “A Soldier’s Play,” with both actors continuing their roles in the film version, “A Soldier’s Story.”

His television work is highlighted by a turn as principle cast member on “In Living Color,” where he helped create some of the show’s most memorable characters, and as a co-star on Bonnie Hunt’s hit ABC comedy, “Life With Bonnie.”

Recently, David created, wrote and executive produced a show for Comedy Central called “Chocolate News,” and finished up a run on “Dancing With The Stars.” Grier didn’t hang up his dance shoes either – he was featured in the Wayans Brothers’ spoof movie “Dance Flick”. In addition, Grier has gained recognition for his other feature film roles, including “Boomerang,” “Jumanji,” “Return To Me” and “Streamers.” For the latter, Grier picked up a Golden Lion Award for “Best Actor” at the Venice Film Festival.

He can also be seen in “Bewitched” with Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell, “Tiptoes” with Matthew McConaughey, Gary Oldman and Kate Beckinsale, and “The Woodsman” with Kevin Bacon, Benjamin Bratt, Mos Def and Eve. Grier was born in Detroit, MI, and currently resides in Los Angeles.

Being married to a Mexican-American girl from east L.A., he is never short of material. However, audiences often come back just for his improvisational crowd work where he can be the most spontaneous.
