We haven't actually interviewed him about this, no.
We're not even offering a preview of the event here, unlike we did with our recent post about tonight's Heckle Factory show – also happening at the New Movement Theater.
But Rob Gagnon's doing this thing there on Saturday night at 10:30pm, and it's called the 1-Hour Comedy Festival, and – in addition to the usual stand-up stylings – it's supposed to be a showcase of everyone and everything you see at a comedy festival.
Comedy-festival stereotypes, in other words.
And so we we asked him, "Well, like what, for instance?"
And Gagnon sent us a list. And it's a thing of beauty.
And so we're sharing that list with you now:
Comic Who's Big In Europe
Quirky Female Comic
Guy Who's "Fed Up With Society These Days"
Angry Female Comic Who May Or May Not Be A Lesbian
Obnoxious Blogger Updates
Overpriced Food Vendors
Random Celebrities You Only Kind Of Want To See
White Guys Freestyle Rapping
Unauthorized Vendor Selling Homemade Shit
Some Asshole With A Puppet
Any of that ring a bell with you, seasoned comedy fan?
Yeah, and the show's only $5. Word to the wise.
