Our friend Krish Mohan sat down with the City Pulse to talk about political comedy, hope, and his upcoming show, "Approaching Happiness," which will take place on Monday as part of our Comedy Coven Presents series. Read the article here, then be sure get your tickets. We can't wait to see you there!
Now that the horrors of 2016 have ended (not really, time is a social construct and/or flat circle, everything is awful, nothing matters), Comedy Coven is ready and raring to go in 2017. January will be one of our most exciting months yet, and we can't wait to show you what we've been brewing up!
First, we are proud to present our first "Comedy Coven Presents" adventure, as we bring Jamie Loftus to Mac's Bar in Lansing on January 15. Jamie is a hilarious and accomplished comic who has performed with comics such as Maria Bamford, Kumail Nanjiani and Chris Hardwick. We can't wait to share the stage with her! Visit our friends at Fusion Shows for tickets and information.
Next, on January 17, Comedy Coven will return to our cozy comedy home, The Robin Theatre in Lansing, for Comedy Coven XXIII: WITCHDRAWAL. This latest continuation of the Comedy Coven saga, written and directed by comedian Matt Gulley, follows Emily, Tricia, and Steph as they face their past transgressions and try to make a fresh start in "witch rehab." Also gracing the stage will be Detroit comic Mike Stanley and returning audience favorite Sarah Jean Anderson, as well as some surprise guests and familiar faces! Tickets are available for $7 on Eventbrite. These shows sell out, so get your tickets while you can!
Lastly, beginning January 19, Comedy Coven will be hosting a series of comedy skills workshops at the Allen Neighborhood Center (ANC) on Lansing's Eastside. This has been part of our vision since Comedy Coven's inception, and we are thrilled to be able to make it a reality. We are often asked by aspiring comedians how to get started in comedy, so we have designed a series of workshops on topics such as comedy writing, branding and representation, combating stage fright, and more. Registration is limited; please register here, and view our press release for more information!
2016 was a landmark year for Comedy Coven; the outpouring of support we've received from the community has been overwhelming and only encourages us to keep getting bigger and refining our craft. We're looking forward to showing you everything we have in store in 2017.
