Luca Ferro is a Chicago based standup comedian, and producer of South Paw Comedy Productions. He uses his loud demeanor and vast arsenal of impersonations to express his discomfort for the world around him. Luca comes from a blue collar, south side Chicago upbringing, and his comedy is reflected as such.
Friday’s feature comics will be Lisa Rossi. Lisa Rossi launched her career as a performer while she was a journalist for The Des Moines Register. While there, she piloted and led the formation of the Des Moines Storytellers Project, a national initiative that Lisa turned into a local success. The project produced sold-out shows across Des Moines and was recognized nationally as a stand-out effort in live storytelling. At this time, Lisa became obsessed with the interaction between audiences and storytellers. She then went to Stanford University in 2017 as part of the elite one-year John S. Knight Journalism fellowship to further investigate the relationship between creators and audiences. It was during this fellowship she discovered improv comedy. Lisa became fascinated with the comedian’s abilities to build empathy and understanding, so she made the jump from the newsroom to comedy club.
Saturday’s Feature is Emily Davis; With hair as colorful as her vocabulary, Emily Davis brings the party wherever she goes. Emily comes to comedy by the way of the theater and major alcoholism. With her on the mic you’ll be wondering if you stumbled into an AA meeting. You did. It’s a trap. Emily Davis is here to tell jokes and chew bubble gum, and she’s all out of bubble gum.
They’ll be joined by some of the funniest surprise guest comics around, hosted by Travis Coltrain.
Doors 8pm, show at 9:30 pm. 19+ show
