Sentient Bean July 9th

Last night the Conquerors and a few other local comedians performed for their monthly stand up night hosted by Patrick the Red. Overall the performance was quite cool. Peter's new "poop a little" joke went over well which was awesome for him. The venue is nice and while some of the comedians are not superstars it's a great time for a few laughs. We met some new comedians that night and shared a few beers with them at the American Legion. It was PBR for Peter and I since we were both incredibly broke (Which is a little lame) Jeremy stood outside since he is underage age (Which is more lame). Make sure you come see us their next month 8/13 Since Peter will be hosting.

Beards of Comedy

This past Sunday I saw the Beards of Comedy at the Laughing Skull (it's part of the Vortex bar and restaurant) in Atlanta. It was pretty damn cool I got there early which is surprising since there are two Vortexes and I apparently thought the comedy was at the other venue. I sat down and ate an Elvis burger which comes with bacon, peanut butter, and plantains my friend ate a coronary burger which had bacon, a fried egg, and lots of mayo. If you get the double the bun are made of two grilled cheese sandwiches. I enjoyed the show since it was a lot like a conquerors show... individual acts and random group skits and songs in between. After the show I hung out and mingled with the beards (Andy Sandford, Dave Stone, Joe Zimmerman, and TJ Young). TJ I had met before and if you dig you'll find a post about him earlier in the blog. Joe was especially nice and hung out with me and my friends for a while after the show (maybe this was mostly beacause my two friends were girls). I also met the manager of the establishment... who actually used to manange The Funny Farm in Roswell which recently closed down. If you've never been to the vortex or the laughing skull I highly reccommend them. The inside has a crazy setup complete with skelletons riding motorcycles and pictures of naked goth girls hung on the walls. Basically a cool place to bring your family.

Get your dick laughin!

Jeremy here, promoting the open mic goin down at the Sentient Bean! Open mics are unpredictable, you never know whats gonna make you laugh and the Conquerors will be there to test the barriers.

I've performed this event once before with the great Patrick the Red, host of the monthly show. It was off the train ya'll, the audience was all for the jokes, new or old they wanted to laugh their dicks off! It was crazy, intense, and the comedians kept coming. This Thursday, the show is about to go crazy with even more local comedians, wilder jokes, and the unpredictable nature of who will be showing up to perform!

Check out the Facebook event here:

Keep em laughin!

New shows

I realized that we really haven't been keeping up with you guys lately... and in fact since our last show in late April I realized we haven't been keeping anyone informed on what's been going on. Not much has been going in comedy lately. We've been doing individual shows lately but in the wake of our finals we had to take a break from big shows... Well school's out for the summer and we are refreshed and ready to go. A week from tomorrow we have a show going on (I'll post more details when I get them). We also have a show coming up in a little over two weeks at the Livewire(Once again details are still coming) Thought I'd let everyone know where and what we are up to.
