Crackers Comedy Broad Ripple Presents Scott Long

Meet Scott Long. I know we introduced you to him last week, but that blog post was really just focusing on his rock star “Comedy Booty Camp” that he’ll be providing for all those who are interested on the Saturday afternoon of August 17. Well, now is our chance to actually pimp HIM and his shows this week, along with feature act, Sally Brooks.

Scott is a nationally touring standup comedian. He’s been seen on a plethora of networks you may have heard of: NBC, FOX-TV, Bob and Tom Show, and ESPN. Plus, he’s been a writer for the NFL on FOX pre-game shows for the past nine years.

You may think his life is amazing, right? Well, life’s a bitch…Hear Scott’s story of being a cool guy until having twins and how he went from Hipster to dipster overnight. Sports car to Minivan. Can you hear the train going off the rails?

If you like dark comedy with some heart thrown in, this is your show. A master of improvisation, no two Scott Long shows are ever the same. Check him out. And don’t forget to sign up for his ‘boot camp’ on Saturday… which includes your admission to his show that night.

Sally Brooks is a comedian, writer and all around swell gal whose personal stories of misadventure and smart-assed nature make her an audience and staff favorite wherever she appears.  She started as a stand-up in coffee shops and dive bars in Cincinnati, Ohio and is now performing at clubs and venues all over the country, sharing the stage with comedians such as Bobcat Goldthwait, Kevin Nealon and Greg Proops. Sally took part in the 2012 Boston Comedy festival, as well as the North Carolina Comedy Arts, Women in Comedy, Brew Ha Ha and Cape Fear Comedy festivals. She is also the creator of the Suburban Housewife web series which has over 1.2 million hits on YouTube and has headlined her own “Girl’s Night Out Tour.” Check out Sally’s comedy.

Matt Holt

Matt Holt Comes To Crackers Broad Ripple

Matt Holt is a funny guy. What made him so funny? Perhaps being the youngest of eight kids in a non-catholic family? Yup, Holt let’s you know they drink, swear and gamble…they just don’t believe in repenting for it!

The story of his life begins with the good fortune of being raised by humorous parents and being surrounded with a wonderful cast of misfits, felons and fugitives who just happen to be related to him. Who could ask for more?

The next chapter of Matt’s life sees him working for a major telecommunications company. He survived fifteen years in Corporate America before throwing his hands up to surrender.

Some people are bad with remembering people’s names or with fractions, Matt is bad with marriages and relationships. At a young age, in need of various small appliances and an assortment of picture frames, Matt entered into the blissful institution of marriage.

The bliss lasted for a few months, the marriage lasted nine years. It ended with the division of everything he owned and the addition of a beautiful daughter.

Since the first marriage went so well, Matt figured; “Why not give it another shot?”. STRIKE TWO! This time around, the marriage train lasted 5 years before it pulled into the station. Now, with what would appear to be one quarter of the possessions he once owned, Matt embarks on the next step in his quest for relationship happiness.

The scars, shadows and memories of his past have not been forgotten. It is from this grounded but chaotic life history that Matt has developed and honed his comedic sensibility. He bases his humor on these experiences and never misses an opportunity to laugh at himself and the world around him. Audiences appreciate Matt’s quick, razor-sharp wit and his relaxed style.

Matt will be performing here at Crackers in Broad Ripple on Wednesday, July 3, Friday, July 5 and Saturday July 6.

If you come from a big family, ever been divorced, or shop at Big & Tall, or just want to laugh your ass off, he’s your guy. We can’t wait to see him. Get your tickets here!

Crackers Broad Ripple Welcomes Tim Harmston and Mary Mack

Crackers Broad Ripple is excited to welcome two great comedians this week: Headliner, Tim Harmston and feature comedian, Mary Mack – beginning Wednesday June 26 through Saturday June 29.

Tim Harmston started his comedy career in 2002, a year later he won Acme Comedy Company’s 2003 Funniest Person in the Twin Cities contest. Once, while emceeing at Acme, a well known headliner said to him “You’re kind of like an idiot, but with smart material”. That winning combination has led to appearances on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, the Bob and Tom radio show, and Wisconsin Public Radio. Tim has performed at the Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival, the Great American Comedy Festival in Norfolk, NE, and the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta. When he’s not on stage, Tim enjoys making smart, idiotic videos for his website. Here is one of his fabulous shorts:

Mary Mack and her mandolin sing-alongs have been featured on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show, XM, Sirius, and Minnesota’s Polka Spotlight.

She has performed in the Vancouver Comedy Fest (2007), HBO’s Andy Kaufman Awards (2007), Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival (2009), and in 2011 was selected for the San Francisco Sketch Fest’s “Dozen,” 12 up and coming headliners performing at the Punch Line throughout the fest.

Mack had her national TV debut on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and NBC’s Last Comic Standing. She now divides her time among Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and a camper in the woods. She has a couple albums out you can purchase
