Colby Smith Brings Solo Comedy Show SLEEPING GIANT To Brooklyn
Join comedian Colby Smith as he brings his first solo hour of comedy SLEEPING GIANT to the New York City stage. The multifaceted extravaganza features a combination of stand-up, storytelling, and songs by one of Brooklyn's most dynamic young voices. Journey with the comedian whom a particularly mean 5-year-old once called "a stranger to most people" as he navigates the travails of modern life, such as the never-ending quest for health insurance, Jimmy Buffett's mysterious hold on his imagination, and accidentally receiving a series of graphic sexts from the father of a child he was babysitting.
Guitarist Matt Strickland will accompany the musical numbers. The show will also feature performances by New York comedy mainstays Sam Taggart (HBO's Los Espookys, Comedy Central Clusterfest), Juliet Prather (MTV), and Tim Keck (TBS, Travel Channel). If you're eager for a night of comedy that does not include rants about how millennials have ruined the country with absurd notions like "feminism" and "fair wages," and instead focuses on fun things like "gossip" and "going to the beach," then COLBY SMITH: SLEEPING GIANT is for you!
Performance location: Friends and Lovers 641 Classon Ave Brooklyn, NY 11238 SUBWAY: A/C to Franklin Av
Performance date: SAT 6/15 @ 8:00pm
