Get to know: Patti Vasquez – our Downtown New Year’s Eve headliner!

Patti lives so close, yet so far away, in the tinsel town of Chicago and we at Crackers are super excited to have her back and doing our New Year’s Eve show Downtown!  Call us now for your reservation, and read on to get psyched about Patti’s show!

How excited ARE you to rock New Year’s Eve with Crackers Comedy Club?!

This will be my second time to the Crackers downtown.  When I was there last spring I was amazed at how wonderful the audiences were!  Everyone comes out ready to have a great time.  Plus, the club staff makes the whole experience a blast!

What are you looking forward to doing once you’re out on the town?

I have two little boys and as much as I love my family I am looking forward to cutting loose a little in Indy!

Will you be performing any new material this New Year’s Eve?

I do have some new material this time around as well as the material everyone knows me for!  Every time I leave too much out someone comes up to me after the show and says “You didn’t talk about your mom or your sister in law.”  I try to mix just enough of the old with the new.

What’s your favorite New Year’s Eve memory?

Is it weird that the New Year’s memory that sticks out the most is that i got a midnight kiss from Dave Coulier who played uncle “Cut-it-out” Joey from Full House?!  He was super cute and very sweet!

(Side Note: the number of people I know that have kissed Dave Coulier is growing quite large!!  When will I get my chance….)

I’m looking forward to seeing you all this week!

Much Love,
RAH

Get to know Greg Warren – one of our New Years Eve headliners!

Greg Warren is one of my dearest friends and during a recent convo with him I realized he’s looking forward to his NYE here as much as I am!

Now living in St. Louis, Greg will be performing in Broad Ripple this week, alongside one his comedy “besties” Jeremy Essig!   I know Greg has a lot of fans here in Indy, so here’s the scoop on Greg:

Where can you stalk him?

It’s only guaranteed that Greg will go 2 places (besides Crackers, of course), and that’s the Cheesecake Factory, and Starbucks.  We’ve all tried to convert Greg to a “locavore”, but when he’s in town he just can’t get enough of the Cheesecake Factory.

What’s he working on?

New material, of course!  He’ll be trying out some at this week’s shows!

What can YOU expect?

You can expect the unexpected.  Every Greg Warren show is a surpise – one of his (and mine!) favorite show memories is ending the show with a round of Karaoke…

So come out and add your hyjinx to the mix this New Year’s Eve!  Call us now for a reservation at 317-255-4211

We know you don’t have plans for tonight (really, you’re watching the Colts game?…) so come enjoy some hilarity for free!

If you bring in 2 boxes of dry pasta tonight, you’re in for FREE!  We’re collecting donations for Second Helpings for the Holidays – so please help us by donating at least 2 boxes of pasta – fusilli, spaghetti, linguini, penne, bowtie, rainbow macaroni – anything goes!

Homegrown Talent (or…Loco Locals!)

We’re definitely aware of the side-splittingly funny local comics we have right here in Indianapolis.  They reside in our little communities, like Broad Ripple, Fountain Square, and the notorious West Side, and more and every week they get up on stage and represent.  But we got to thinking, maybe YOU don’t know that!

You’ve read about comedian Jeff Oskay last week in NUVO Newsweekly and came out to see him perform in Broad Ripple.

(sorry, a little old clip!)

But it doesn’t stop there!

You can catch great local comics like Jeff every week at Crackers!  Starting with Open Mic Night on Tuesday nights!  You’ll see veterans like Marques Bunn and Matt Holt, as well as rookies; plus some great regional talent, and often a big name surprise or two!

Ask the Expert!

Feel like a loser?  Jack Freeman can help!  He’s opening up for Drew Hastings this week at Crackers Comedy Club in Broad Ripple!  In my book, one of the most exciting Midwestern comics Drew Hastings will be headlining this week. I look forward to his visits, especially when he brings his pal Jack Freeman, the Success Guru.

You’ll love Jack as much as I do. In this recession, if you’re feeling down on your luck, Jack can help you. Come see him Wednesday through Saturday at the Broad Ripple Crackers Comedy Club.  And before you go, comment here and on our Facebook with what YOU’D like to be the Master of Success at in your life, and maybe Jack Freeman will give you a little boost!
