Comedy Goodness Courtesy of Greg Behrendt

*Photo by Mike CaranoGet excited because comedian Greg Behrendt will be taking the stage at the November Super Serious Show! Behrendt’s performances are always jam packed with energy and charisma. Along with being one of the best comedians working today, Behrendt brings a fun perspective on romantic and familial relationships to his performances.

After working as a consultant on HBO’s Sex in the City for three consecutive seasons, Behrendt went on to co-author the best selling self-help book He's Just Not That Into You, which later was turned into the feature film of the same name. This success led to his own daily daytime talk show, The Greg Behrendt Show, for Sony Pictures Television as well as countless television appearances. As a stand-up comedian, he has been seen on HBO, The Tonight Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and numerous Comedy Central appearances.

Behrendt also hosts Walking The Room, the popular weekly comedy podcast with his comedian buddy, Dave Anthony.

I personally can’t wait to ask him about the guy I’ve been seeing. He’s just been acting so weird lately. WHY WON’T HE CALL ME? WHY GREG? WHY? ...Sorry, Greg.

Grab tickets here to see Behrendt and the rest at the November 17th show.

Command of The Funny: Jen Kirkman

We’re excited to have the hyper smart and unique comedian Jen Kirkman at Super Serious this month's show. She’s one of our favorite comedians working today. She's a favorite of many others, too - held in high esteem by her comedy peers and audiences all over.

Jen Kirkman's passion and honesty sets her apart from much of the stand-up community. She is a stand-up comedian, television writer and actress. Kirkman’s stage presence is fearless – often engaging the audience and embracing in-the-moment tangents. Some of Kirkman’s most fun comedic moments on stage originate from the venn diagram of her passion and neurosis.

Kirkman most recently was a staff writer for NBC’s Perfect Couples. She spent several years as a head writer/actor on E!’s Chelsea Lately. She is still a regular on Chelsea Lately’s roundtable. Kirkman had a notable appearance as the narrator of HBO’s Funny Or Die “Drunk History,” which received the Jury Prize for “Best Short Film” at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010. She performs stand-up worldwide and has numerous television appearances, including spots on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, Late Friday and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. Kirkman was also a cast member of VH1’s sketch show, Accetable TV. In 2006, AST Records released her first comedy album, Self Help. Her second album will be released late this year.

Kirkman is an online favorite through her twitter feed – MSN and The Huffington Post named her one of the top comedians to follow on Twitter. In 2009 Entertainment Weekly also named Kirkman “One of The Top 12 Rising Stars in Comedy.”

For Los Angeles locals, Kirkman currently hosts a monthly talk show at The Upright Citizens Theatre and often performs at The Hollywood Improv, The Laugh Factory and Largo.

In our past comedy life, we used to run a show at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood. The sunset strip comedy club is not always the most inspiring comedy environment, but Kirkman's numerous performances were always a treat. Engaging, sweet and always one of the funniest people in the room, Kirkman’s visits to the show were a highlight. Her comedy and our experiences working with her is one of the main reasons we created The Super Serious Show – to give great comedians a cool space to do their thing.

Grab your tickets to the March 17th show to catch Kirkman live.

As a treat, here's Jen Kirkman in the always funny online series, Drunk History.

 

Marc Maron: Force of Personality

A philosopher for our WTF times? Comedian and force-of-personality, Marc Maron, fits the bill. We're extremely honored and excited to have him stop by Super Serious tomorrow to share the funny and maybe a little bit of wisdom, too.

Marc Maron brings the funny from all over - stand-up, author, actor, radio personality and podcast impresario. Often manic, always funny, Maron is one of the most honest and insightful comedians working today.

Maron appeared on numerous shows over the years, including HBO, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Late Show with David Letterman, two Comedy Central Presents specials.

He performed a solo show based on his two divorces and anger problem called, "Scorching the Earth." Maron hosts the wildly popular podcast WTF with Marc Maron. His three comedy albums, Not Sold Out, Tickets Still Available and Final Engagement are comedy cult classics.
