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!

The >>Tim Wilson<< Challenge!

Think you’re as funny as Tim Wilson — or funnier?  This is your chance to put up your comedy dukes while helping Tim out at the same time!

Tim’s performing at Crackers Comedy Club in Broad Ripple this week, and he’d like your help creating a song just for the Indianapolis audience!  You could win 4 tickets to his show on Saturday night!  Here’s how:

Submit your “People, Places or Things” to us here at our blog, or on our Facebook, and Tim will take your suggestions and mash them all together (or throw out really bad ones) to create a song which he’ll reveal at Saturday night’s shows!  This is your chance to be a part of epic comedic history (or, rather, current events)!  So reply here, or hop over to our Facebook page and tell Tim “Who”, “What”, or “Where” he should write about!

{examples:  babies, grocery store, mudslide, karaoke, speed dating, your mom, etc.}

Dan Cummins: Broad Ripple Sept. 29 – Oct. 2

Welcome to a fresh edition of the Green Room!

I had the pleasure of catching up and chatting with Broad Ripple’s headlining comic Dan Cummins (September 29 – October 2).  If you’re not already familiar with his ire-hilarity, you’ll surely recognize him from his Comedy Central special Crazy with a Capital F, which re-aired this past Friday night.   You can check out clips from this special and more here:

Dan’s no slouch.  He’s one of those comics that’s constantly creating, and he’s multi-talented;  just check out his camera-ops work AND his newsanchor skills in Fresh”> off the Pot!

On top of writing and testing hours of new material each week, a busy tour schedule, and crafting genius short stories for a book, Dan’s also hard at work pitching show ideas to the network big-wigs at the History Channel, Spike TV, and more!

With all this teasing, I’m sure your ready to see Dan this week, right?  Well we’re giving you a chance to win a set of 4 tickets to any show you choose!  Just pitch us one of your greatest ideas ever! That’s right, tell us YOUR idea for an incredibly poignant/funny/obtuse/or not-really-relevant TV show!  Reply in the comment section below.  Dan himself will pick the winner, so be sure to include an email so we can get in touch with you!
