On Tour Guide: July 28-August 3
Apologies for the posting delay, Earwolfensteins. The Just For Laughs Festival is all-encompassing, taking over Montreal and sending dozens – dozens, I say! – Earwolf-affiliated artists to the sandy shores of Montreal. (No shores.) Catch Maria Bamford, Paul F. Tompkins, Moshe Kasher, Matt Braunger, and many others…if you’re already here. Check out the full list, but don’t fret: There’s plenty happening for you non-travelies this week.
The Sklar Brothers, The Punchline (San Francisco, CA) July 28-30
The hosts of Sklarbro Country tackle pop culture and get into some serious riff-sessions. Is “riff-sessions” a thing? It sounds like the shittiest Miles Davis album of all time.
James Adomian, “The Party Machine” Union Hall (Brooklyn, NY) July 30
This genius character actor was at JFL last year, and this time around was probably like, “Enough of this horseshit!” Or maybe he wasn’t booked. It’s a travesty, though, because Adomian can light up any Comedy Bang! Bang! episode with Paul Giamatti or food critic Merrill Shindler.
Todd Glass, The Laughing Skull (Atlanta, GA) July 28-31
Todd Glass turns his straightforward life into epic tales of anger, betrayal, and heartbreak. Hear his storytelling skills on Comedy Bang! Bang! and/or Sklarbro Country anytime; see him in Atlanta, now.
