Meet our REVERB Local comedian Emcees:
Daniel Duarte: Conor Byrne
(Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, the film "Dessert & Suicide")
Well, my doctor says I'm six foot and a half inch, but people say I'm taller. I started comedy way back in 2009 after I realized I wasn't going to be the funniest international car show model. Weak chin. I don't trust people with gold chains or who bare their bottom teeth when they smile. I am a funny person and an Iraq War veteran. Psych. I'm not a person. I'm a spacecat. Pyooh pyooh.
Come see my group's monthly show "The Humor Program."
Andy Palmer: Miro Tea Stage
Andy started comedy in 2008. Since then he's performed all over the Pacific Northwest, as well as in Belfast, Northern Ireland and Berlin, Germany. This year he performed at Bumbershoot and in Sketchfest Seattle.
Albert Kirchner: Salmon Bay Eagles
Albert has a great face, on top of a great heart, surrounded by a lackluster body. Desperately playing with the line between spectacle and meaningful, Albert is a young semi-fearless comic who sometimes is a tornado. Maybe you've seen him at the People With Instruments festival as well as the Bumbershoot music and arts festival. Come on by for a taste of the best delusional joy that money can rent.
Evan Morrison: New York Fashion Academy
Evan Morrison is a young comedian from Seattle Washington. In his first year in stand up Evan has has become a regular host at "Punchline Fridays", "Jack-a-napes" (at Conor Byrne) and a regular guest at Seattle's Comedy Underground.
Jen Seaman: Tractor
Jen Seaman was raised in a small military island town in the Northwest. Somehow she managed to leave without getting knocked up or enlisted (your loss, military). Seaman is a quirky, Velma/Daphne looking geek (not dork) from Seattle. She is a stand up comedian who has performed at Bumbershoot, Seattle Weekly's ReverbFest & Artopia. She recently made her television debut on Comedy Central's Atom TV and was also a judge favorite on Season 6 of America's Got Talent. She is survived by her two cats, roommate and mother who still hasn't watched her perform but knows that she does it just a car ride away. Just a car ride, mom!
Elicia Sanchez: Two Bit Saloon
With a massive dose of cynicism, jokes about Star Trek, an ambiguous ethnic appearance and a name no one can fully pronounce, Elicia Sanchez has been balancing meager paychecks between comic books and happy hour while performing stand up comedy in the Seattle area and surrounding cities since 2010. She has performed with national headliners such as Graham Elwood, Duncan Trussell and Jackie Kashian and has performed in festivals such as Bumbershoot and Seattle's Crypticon. Elicia is currently a member of nerd-centric Seattle-based comedy troupe, Children of the Atom and hosts a comedy podcast about horribly awesome movies entitled, The Enematic Cinematic. Her likes include B-movies, video games, beer and spreadable foods. Her dislikes include werewolves, cancer and loud people on the bus. Her favorite color is Blue Raz.
Anita Goodmann: Hilliard's Brewery
Miss Anita Goodmann is a most unusual comedienne. A self-described sexually-confident manwomanwomanman, she is a true socialite on the Seattle arts scene. Known for her hosting, comedy, singing, and drinking talents, Anita emceed for the long-running Bedroom Club burlesque review before creating her own crazy and surreal YouTube production The Anita Goodmann Experience. She appears regularly in a variety of Seattle's off-beat comedy shows including, MATCH GAME Re-Bar, WXPFL Extreme Pencil Fighting, reknowned drag review Bacon Strip, and performs stand-up comedy at Level Up! Seattle Gay Scene has referred to her as "a Living Legend," but only because she made-out with the reviewer (it is a long story). Her upcoming production, the hilariously revealing The Secret Diaries of Anita Goodmann, will be staged at the Ballard Underground on Feb 7th, 8th, and 9th, 2013.
Derek Sheen: Sunset Tavern
Hi, I'm Derek Sheen, a Seattle based comedian, writer, actor and host of the very popular "Delicious Mediocrity" podcast (available for download on iTunes!). I was lucky enough to be raised around talented people and became interested in the art of comedy around the age of four. That was when my Mom got me a copy of "The Sick Humor of Lenny Bruce". I wore the grooves off of it and would perform full pieces of the album for my family and friends. The laughter I got just from copying bits off albums sparked an addiction to attention that was hard to match. Soon, I was copping bits by everyone from Cosby to Carlin, From Dick Gregory to Phylis Diller and eventually I decided that I wanted to try making my own jokes! It wasn't easy, but after years of heartbreaking disappointments, personal tragedies, abject failure, personal struggles with alcohol and drugs, giving 'tuggers' to strangers just so I could afford a taco, I think I found the right formula to re-create that euphoric feeling I used to get, so long ago in my parents living room. I can't wait to share with you what I've learned... no, not the handjob part!!? The funny part! Come along with me as I share with you the wonderful, sometimes tragic, sometimes very dark but hopefully very funny pieces of my life! If nothing else, there might be a handjob in it for you?? Derek Sheen has performed with:
Jim Jeffries, Arj Barker, Maria Bamford, Reggie Watts, Rick Shapiro, Robin Williams, Billy Wayne Davis, Brent Weinbach, Jon Dore, Hari Kondabolu, Brian Posehn, Todd Glass, Laurie Kilmartin, Myq Kaplan, Paul Myrehaug, ...and many more
