January Super Serious was a blast. Standing room only, amazing performances and all the free beer gone! Thanks to everyone again who came out and got into the show, braving the packed house. The night was highlighted by the super fun Sklar Brothers and our special surprise guest Demetri Martin. Andrea Savage, Hampton Yount, The New York Smiths and videos from Danny Jelinek and Jason Whetzell all added insane amounts of fun to the night.
Andrea Savage is a true talent with a litany of comedy skills and she’s coming to The Super Serious Show this week. She’s been one of our favorite comedic performers for awhile now and we’re luck to catch her return to the stage.
Savage's performances always bring the unexpected and she has the special ability be both the silly one and the straight-man in any given scene. Always upping the funny quota in the process.
Savage was recently seen in Dinner for Schmucks, opposite Paul Rudd and Steve Carell. Prior to that, she appeared in a television pilot created by Tom Lennon and Ben Garant, as well as I Love You Beth Cooper and Step Brothers, opposite John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell with Adam McKay directing and Judd Apatow producing. She can next be seen in Wilfred, the half-hour comedy starring Elijah Wood for FX.
Savage’s improvisation background from The Groundlings led her to lead roles in The Grand opposite Woody Harrelson and Dog Bites Man, the short lived but stand-out Comedy Central show created by Dan Mazer (Borat).
In addition to her great acting and improv skills, Savage is an accomplished writer. She is currently writing a feature comedy script for Castle Rock Entertainment and recently wrote an untitled half-hour pilot script for 20th Century Fox TV through Chernin Entertainment.
Savage frequently collaborates with Funny Or Die, as well. Here's a clip from a few year ago with Savage interviewing her fellow Funny Or Die Tour buddies. Enjoy.
