Crackers Comedy Club Broad Ripple Present Dan Cummins

In the last five years, Dan Cummins has released two critically and commercially successful CDs on Warner Brothers Records, Revenge is Near, and Crazy with Capital F, both debuting in the top 10 of the Billboard Comedy Charts, and both making numerous year end top 10 lists, including Itunes Rewind’s Best Comedy CDs of 2010.

He’s also toured relentlessly, bringing his jokes to over 200 colleges, clubs, theaters, and the world’s most prestigious comedy festivals, including two trips to the Montreal Comedy Festival. In addition to headlining live shows from Maine to Alaska, Dan’s also made numerous televised stand-up appearances, including performances on The Tonight Show, The Late, Late Show, Last Comic Standing, and numerous Comedy Central programs, including both a half-hour special, Comedy Central Presents Dan Cummins, and an hour-long comedy special, Crazy with a Capital F. One of the most prolific writers on the national scene, Dan continues to craft new jokes and stories, and bring them to countless audiences in his quest to build a fan base large enough to pack clubs and theaters in whatever town he chooses to travel to, just to hear whatever he has to say. So do yourself a favor, and start listening.

“Revenge is Near announces the presence of a distinct voice in comedy. That’s not an easy thing to do right of the gate, but it’s the reason Cummins’ belongs alongside the other comics on this list.” – Patrick Bromley, from About.com’s “The Best Debut Comedy Albums of 2009″

“We love Dan Cummins, plain and simple. Crazy with a Capital F (is) another smart, endearing, and sarcastic soaked set.” – Punchline Magazine.com’s “The 10 Must Have Stand-up DVDs from 2010″

“Cummins’ comedy runs more on bizarre than classical, more on oddity than traditional comedy. And thank goodness for that — good comedy thrives on the new, on the fresh. Too many comedians, after all, articulate what “everybody else is thinking.” Cummins says what nobody else but him is thinking.” – The Inlander’s review of Crazy with a Capital F, by Daniel Walters

“Here’s why we dig Dan Cummins: We’ve seen a table full of Blue-Collar-Comedy fans elbow to elbow with college-aged hipsters and all of them were doubled over in laughter at the same Cummins bit. That’s not always easy to do. The fact is, Cummins smartly writes to a broad audience, but his own intelligence and cleverness never gets lost in the mix. As a result, comedy nerds can still geek out on subject matter or how a phrase is turned. Top it all off with a giant dollop of unassuming likability. We say it’s a win.” – Lastgascomedy.com

Crackers Broad Ripple Welcomes Steve Simeone

Crackers Comedy Club in Broad Ripple is thrilled to have comedian, Steve Simeone, joining us from Wednesday September 11 thru Saturday September 14. Also appearing with him are comedians Nick Rutherford and Jimmy Roberson. It’s going to be a slamming show!

Steve Simeone grew up in Suburban Philadelphia, the middle of three brothers. He developed his unique high energy style of storytelling around the family dinner table competing for laughs on a nightly basis. Whether in the classroom or at home, Steve always seemed happiest making people laugh, even if it meant he sometimes got into trouble.

After graduating from Loyola College in Maryland as a member of the National Marketing Honor Society, Steve accepted a job in banking. This was not a good fit and didn’t last long. His brief stint of being a real grown up, gave way to a dream job with the Philadelphia Eagles. Now this was way more fun than banking. But those who are destined for the stage, are destined for the stage. After a few Open Mics, came the title of “Funniest Comic in Philly”. Some things are simply meant to be. Celebrity judge Pauly Shore invited Steve to Hollywood and The World Famous Comedy Store. He was now making $25 a night working the door. Steve always seemed happiest making people laugh, even if it meant he sometimes starved.

Steve has spent the last ten years slowly honing the craft of Stand Up Comedy. He is a regular performer at Hollywood’s most prestigious Comedy Clubs, The Comedy Store, The Improv, and The Laugh Factory. When he’s not headlining clubs on his own he can be seen on the road with The Playboy Comedy Tour, Pauly Shore, and Andrew Dice Clay. A proud member of “Comics On Duty”, Steve has entertained our troops around the globe on four continents. And yes, Steve has been on television (NBC’s “Spy TV”, on Current TV’s “The Schmoes Know” and TBS’s “Minding The Store”) but as they say, the best is yet to come. Steve always seemed happiest making people laugh, even if it meant he got to tour with his childhood hero “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. Check him out from the last time he was here:

Here is a bit from feature act, Nick Rutherford

Don’t hesitate! Get your tickets today! It’s going to be one stellar show. And ps: Steve Simeone is going to be back here in November performing with the incredible Steve Rannazzisi. Go ahead and get that on your calendar too! Cheers!

Crackers Comedy Presents Ari Shaffir

Crackers Comedy Club in Broad Ripple is excited to present the hilarious and talented Ari Shaffir this week from Wednesday, July 31 – Saturday, August 3 along with feature comedian, Jon Rudnitsky.

Amongst other works, Ari Shaffir is probably most well-known for a series of comedy works entitled “The Amazing Racist,” the title is a play on that of the reality television show The Amazing Race. In these shorts, “The Amazing Racist” is seen acting in a manner which is overtly and ironically racist. Shaffir filmed many of his offensive encounters for the DVD National Lampoon’s Lost Reality. They were then ripped to the internet by hundreds of different nerds and seen by millions of people. Watching the videos makes many people laugh and many people very angry. Shaffir gets death threats at least once a week and loves them all. If you haven’t seen the videos, Google him. Please don’t watch them at work because you’ll get fired.

Shaffir has also been featured on the HBO show Down and Dirty with Jim Norton, TBS’ show Minding the Store, ESPN Classic’s Cheap Seats: Without Ron Parker, Latino Laugh Festival on Si TV, has made a few appearances on The Opie and Anthony Show, including the greatest day of radio of all time, Babybird, and you probably have seen him on one of the dozens of national commercials he has whored himself in over the years.

Shaffir’s first love is stand up though, and he is a regular at all the major clubs in Los Angeles. For the last few years, he has been touring nationally with Joe Rogan. Shaffir tends to describe his comedy as a puppet show, but way filthier and without the puppets. Shaffir wrote this biography, so every time it says “Shaffir did this,” or “Shaffir did that,” it’s really Shaffir writing it about himself. Shaffir feels like a tool for having done that.

Please don’t come to the show if you’re easily offended, or if you don’t like hearing Jews tell awful stories about sexual misconduct, or if you hate fun. Everyone else, please do come. Grab your tickets because they will go fast. Get tickets here.
