UnParalleled Alt Comedy at Sunday’s UnCab – Zappa, Droege, Pyle plus!

So excited about Sunday’s mix of alt comedy extraordinary. Drew Droege , Moon Zappa, Tim Bagley, Matt Braunger plus Musical Guests Missi Pyle and Mak Grgic.

I love Moon’s  TWITTER. It gets the whole big wonderful ball of her. She’s a rebel yogi, an author, actress, artist, Mom, daughter, yes also the proto valley girl – and all of it oh so sweet and sour funny. She recently made a much talked about appearance on MARC MARON’S WTF PODCAST. I love her rants and stories at UnCab. Plus she is always so Boho Chic.

I sat with DREW DROEGE at Alec Mapa’s Baby Daddy, where I learned the he “doesn’t much care for popcorn.” Shocking! Less shocking…The fact that Drew was recently a cover boy on Frontiers Magazine, is currently starring in  NOT LOOKING, and has a NY Magazine Aprroval Matrixed PODCASTGLITTER IN THE GARBAGE. If you know him best as Chloe Sevigny, do yourself a favor and see Drew as Drew. You’ll pop your corn!

MISSI PYLE puts the on in blonde! You’ve seen HER in a gazillion great things including THE ARTISTCHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORYINSIDE AMY SCHUMERTHE SARAH SILVERMAN PROGRAM and FRIENDS. She sings, she shines, she stories and she just Pyles the joy quite high.  Missi was nominated for an MTV Award for Best Fight for her knock-down drag-out with  QUEEN LATIFAH. Missi started her career out SINGING and she will be HAPPILY DOING JUST THAT, and generally being on on Sunday!

TIM BAGLEY has been telling on himself at UnCab since our days at Luna Park. He came to us with an insanely talented pack of Groundlings including Judy Toll, Julia Sweeney, Kathy Griffin and Mike McDonald. You’ve seen him act his pants off, sometimes literally, on everything from  MONK to CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM to WILL & GRACE. He recently got into it with us on our podcast UNCABARET UNSTAGED on which he talked about, among other things, his show “Clean Boy, Dirty Stories” about his time as a butler at the Playboy Mansion. Oh Tim!

His new Comedy Central Special is called MATT BRAUNGER:SHOVEL FIGHTER but he is not a shovel fighter! He is a shovel lover! His Nerdist podcast is called DING DONGER. And I’m guessing that is pretty accurate. You may recognize him from his funny boy appearances on  CHELSEA LATELY, LETTERMAN and CONAN.

MAK GRGIC  is a young virtuoso guitar player. Straight out of USC his debut album  CINEMA VERISIMO is filled with the magical music of post-WW2 Hollywood. THE WASHINGTON POST calls him a “LYRICAL, INSIGHTFUL PLAYER.”

Spring Downtown for Alt Comedy 3/23

Yesterday was the first day of Spring!!! Yay. I really try to love winter but it’s hard. Even here in sunny Southern California. The light is less and there is an aura about winter.  There is a stuckness. In spring things start to move. Happen. One thing and then another. And so it makes sense that the first day of spring is also  World Storytelling Day! We love the world. We love stories. We love days. But we especially love our story filled Sunday nights at First and Hope. Look “I” turned into “we”, that’s how awesome spring is!

This Sunday 3/23 celebrate the beginning of Spring at UnCabaret!

Our friend Claudia Lonow (Rude Awakening, How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest of Your Life), Knots Landing) makes her UnCab debut alongside alt comedy UnCab faves Byron Bowers, Karen Kilgariff — both of whom just returned from SXSW — this year’s Outfest Fusion award winner Alec Mapa (Ugly Betty, Tonight Show, Desperate Housewives, Babydaddy) and Kira Soltanovich (Tonight Show). Plus we’ll have music from the seven-octave-singing Timur, and Daniel, of Timur and The Dime Museum.
