After an unexpectedly long hiatus, monthly live comedy shows are finally coming back to Edmonds, Washington!
What took you jokers so long?
We stopped scheduling shows last year after event producer and Edmonds-based comedian CJ Alexander, faced with sudden family-related duties (and related travel demands) became temporarily unable to manage the ongoing show calendar — amid a venue relocation, no less. Soon after his full-time return to the area, CJ found himself writing this boring and tragically unfunny paragraph — and was every bit as happy as you when… it… finally… ended. WOOO!! (high five)
Relaunching the Edmonds Comedy event calendar
Now it’s finally time for the fun stuff! We’ve been excited — and, frankly, relieved — to learn that audience and venue enthusiasm for live comedy in Edmonds, WA remains very, very strong. We’re currently evaluating the finalists for our new venue, and will announce our selection along with the Summer 2013 comedy show dates presently. ((We remain big fans of Demetri’s Woodstone Taverna, where last year’s comedy shows were fun and successful — but live comedy deserves a better long-term fit.))
So stay tuned, for we shall return — much like Gen. Douglas MacArthur, if MacArthur had been a harmless clown, and if you replaced his domineering will to conquest with debilitating waves of social and sexual insecurity. And he’d probably be outwardly concerned about his carbon footprint, but in a sanctimonious sort of way — like all good Puget Sounders. (Even a grunge state hippie version of MacArthur is still going to be a dick, right?)
Until we’re back, may all of your crazy digressions make sense, and may every one of your days be an an EDMONDS kind of day.
