Quick Dish LA: TALKIES Comedy Variety 6.20 at Whammy Analog

TALKIES is the West Coast’s best unconventional, experimental, and multimedia live comedy event.
Come celebrate the show’s Twelfth Anniversary this Thursday, June 20th. Talkies encourages comedians, writers, improvisers, and performers to work outside of their regular routines and push the boundaries of comedy; PowerPoint presentations, characters, and off-stage antics are the order of the day. Started in the San Francisco Mission District basement of Lost Weekend Video store in June 2012, this monthly show has been an incubator for many unique comedy talents spreading their wings on weird flights of fancy.  Since Spring 2022 the show has found its new Los Angeles home at Echo Park’s VHS palace Whammy Analog. The Talkies crew has also curated events and performed at the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive, Santa Cruz Comedy Festival, and the Nevada City Film Festival. Talkies regularly tours the Bay Area and is often a sell-out show at SF Sketchfest. For this special event at Whammy, the lineup will include:

Andy Deemer (Penn and Teller: Fool Us, Magic Castle)
Subhah Agarwal (Comedy Central, Westworld)
Chad Damiani (Stand-up & Clown)
Sammy Mowrey (Adult Swim)
with Video by BUTT

hosted by Nick Stargu, Aviva Siegel, George Chen, and Land Smith-Abbinate!

Celebrations are in order. Come be a part of this epic event! (You are totally gonna need this after that brutal first episode of House of The Dragon S2. OOOOF, baby).
