Wit To Spare: Karl Hess

Karl Hess will be making you laugh at this month’s Super Serious Show. If you’re a fan of local live comedy, then you’ve probably run into Karl Hess.

Hess regularly appears on some of the best comedy shows in town. Hess’ comedy is filled with witty, often random, observations and stories that you will no doubt find hilarious. His cool hair and sweet personality will make you an instant fan of his and if not, we will give you none of your money back. None.

More about Hess– he was featured as a New Face at the 2010 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Additionally, he has performed stand-up at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta and the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. He was recently voted by RooftopComedy.com as one of the best Underground Comics of 2011 and featured on their album, Silver Nails.
