Johnny Pemberton: Not Kidding Around

This Thursday at Smashbox Studios, comedian Johnny Pemberton, will be performing at the show! Pemberton is a comedian, writer and actor based in Los Angeles. As a performer and actor, Pemberton plays off his boyish features, while sharing his amusing observations, sometimes his hatred, of various people and things. Always fun and usually a little obnoxious. You may recognize Pemberton as the host of the MTV series MegaDrive, which has him operating and conquering some seriously large and powerful vehicles. While MegaDrive feels a lot like MTV’s Jackass, Pemberton’s amusing and endearing awkwardness gives this show its own unique personality. In addition to this hosting job, Pemberton has also made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Lopez Tonight, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and AdultSwim.

You can expect to see Pemberton in the upcoming feature-film, 21 Jump Street, based on the 80's cop show starring Johnny Depp. Although Pemberton is now jumping into the realm of film and television, he comes from a stand-up and sketch comedy background, and continues to perform in Los Angeles as well as at venues across the country.

The Super Serious Show with Natasha Leggero

We’re excited to announce our Summer show will be headlined by the supremely funny Natasha Leggero. June 16th, Leggero will be bringing her great comedy combo – glamour, spunk and silliness – to Smashbox Studios. Leggero is one of the most popular touring comedians, performing stand-up nationwide.

On top of her touring, Leggero has numerous appearances on television. She's a regular round table guest on Chelsea Lately. Other appearances include numerous stand-up spots on The Tonight Show, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. She also served as a judge for season 7 of Last Comic Standing.

Some of Leggero’s most fun performances are her stints playing various crazy deviants on the several year run on Comedy Central’s past hit, Reno 911! Leggero’s other acting roles include appearances on Fox’s ‘Til Death, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Samantha Who, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Sarah Silverman Program, Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time and a supporting role in the feature film, He’s Just Not That Into You. She is also a starring voice for Comedy Central’s animated series, Ugly Americans.

Leggero is a unique stand-up in the comedy landscape, joyfully bringing some style to the proceedings. Her stylistic look and diminutive on-stage stature is a fun match to her fun filled comedy, often taking down society’s failings and a fearless willingness to act silly during performances.

Grab your tickets now for the June 16th show - Leggero and Super Serious paired together at last!

The Funny and The Fury: Eddie Pepitone

The Bitter Buddha – comedian Eddie Pepitone – is coming to Super Serious this month - St. Patrick's Day. Watch out. Pepitone is a force of nature on stage – often switching back and forth between social rage and self doubt. An energetic combo of calm and chaos, Pepitone is one of our favorite comedians. Few comedians working today channel the power of the rant better than Pepitone. He’s one of a kind and a favorite among fellow comedians and die heard comedy fans alike.

In addition to his stand-up skills, Eddie Pepitone is a stand-out comic/character actor. Pepitone began his comedy career in New York City, quickly becoming a regular on the scene. He appeared regularly on Late Night With Conan O’Brien. His other numerous television appearances include Chappelle’s Show, Crossballs on Comedy Central, Jimmy Kimmel Live, King of Queens, Last Comic Standing, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Sarah Silverman Program. Pepitone also appeared in the hit movie Old School.

Pepitone’s has dramatic acting chops, as well, with appearances on Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Deadline, The Beat and Now and Again.

He toured the country with the acclaimed Improv company Chicago City Limits. He currently tours nationwide and is a staple in the Los Angeles comedy scene, performing at The Improv, Largo and The Upright Citizen Brigade Theatre. The Comedy Bureau recently profiled Pepitone and his excellence. It's a great read and summary of why so many love Pepitone.

Pepitone’s one of the more popular and flavorful comedians online these days - his Twitter account is a must follow. He is one of the hosts of the popular comedy podcast, The Long Shot. Recently, Pepitone wrote and starred in an ongoing web series, Puddin’ Time – a great modern live-action version of the traditional single-frame comic.

Here’s one of our favorite Pepitone rants from a 2009 live recroding of Marc Maron’s popular WTF podcast. Enjoy.
