SXSW Comedy: It’s Happening! A Post-Apocalyptic Gathering of Friends, Family & Strangers
The apocalypse is here (for real this time), and you’re invited to celebrate with a few of The Mischief’s favorite comics. Our post-apocalyptic planning committee will be on hand to lead an end of times survival discussion, so bring supplies. Drinks will be served, but safety’s not guaranteed.
Hosted by Max & Ivan, with Adam Cayton-Holland, Andres du Bouchet, Andy Peters, Aparna Nancherla, Brent Weinbach, Drennon Davis, Gabe & Jenny, Jay Larson, Jerrod Carmichael, Johnny Pemberton, Jon Dore, Josh Fadem, Reggie Watts, Rory Scovel
Comedian/actor/writer based in Los Angeles. Currently a staff writer for CONAN on TBS.
From his elaborate characters and impressions, to his provocative songs and animation, Drennon is quickly making a name for himself as one of the most innovative young minds in today’s comedy scene. His performances of festival favorite the Imaginary Radio Program combine live-looped songs and beat-boxing with one-man sketches and array of hilarious special guests into a show that the Los Angeles Comedy Bureau writes "not only lives up to its name, but exceeds expectation in what you could possibly think it is."
“If you venture into this awkward yet ultimately rewarding late-night show, you may well come out of it thinking that Drennon Davis is a bit of a genius.” - The Times (UK)
He’s been featured on Carson Daly’s Last Call and a semi-finalist of Last Comic Standing. His new animated show The Long Legs can be seen on MTV's rebirth of Liquid Television in 2012.
With appearances on TOSH.0, The Late Late show, The Smoking Gun Presents, Conan and his own half hour special on Comedy Central Jay has come a long way since he moved to Los Angeles in 2000. After flunking out of college, then finally getting accepted back after many attempts, Jay threw away his diploma to pursue a career in Stand Up comedy. After living in a condemned house for 14 months, I mean who hasn’t, Jay started opening for comedy greats such as Nick Swardson, Daniel Tosh and Pablo Fransisco. He soon became known as a comedian with a whacky, original voice who tends to get a little weird. Since those early days Jay has continued climbing the ranks with multiple TV appearances, many internet short films and his first album, “Self-Diagnosed”, available on itunes. His voice continues to grow as he has delved into the world of interacting with strangers and creating conflict with people he doesn’t know. Jay is a fantastic storyteller, showcased weekly on his podcast, “The Crabfeast” on Jay Mohr’s Fake Mustache Studios. With TV projects in development, be sure to catch Jay now before he ignores everyone…forever…seriously…he will.
