Slap Happy: Comedy Times 9

Bisbee’s Obscure Productions is head over heels with excitement to present the 9th installment of their (almost) annual Comedy Show, this year celebrating the country’s economic recovery (or not. . .). Local comics cut loose once again with stand-up, sketches, song, dance, and finally (!) the silly pet tricks we’ve been hoping for.

BOP is slaphappy to feature a cast of mostly veteran performers in this year’s show, headed up by emcee, “Obscure” Rae Jones. Jahfree Lambo, Liz Lockwood, Carl Purush Siberon, Yvonne Grimm & Bobo Sage are guaranteed to have you rolling with laughter once again. Sharon Strachan will be joined in her return to the BOP comedy stage by a newcomer to us, but not to the stage, local personality, Deb Gardner. Hilary Pursehouse of the hilarious “Oddvarks” will be on hand to lead local talent in her wild sketches and anything goes improv games. Hilary will also keep us rolling with laughter this year with her own stand-up debut. Jokester Will “Uri” Gronlund will be joined by his wife and interpreter, Patricia, to regale us with the humor of Russia.

BOP veteran, Christa Smith, will make her Comedy Show debut this year, as will new-to-our-stage comic, Steven McDiarmid. Zane the one-eyed wonder dog will strut his stuff with the help of his boss, Gilles. Believe me, Silly is Zane’s middle name.

This year’s festival of laughs will be held at the Central School Project’s Squffy Theater, 43 Howell Ave. in Old Bisbee at 7:30 p.m. on October 28 & 29, and at 3:00 on October 30. Advanced tickets are on sale now for $10 each at Atalanta’s Music & Books and The Bisbee Food Coop, by mail from BOP at Box 277, Bisbee, 85603, and by credit card (add $1) by calling 520-432-2901. Any tickets left will be $12 at the door, $6 for students with ID. For more information, please contact Rae Jones at 520-432-2901 or at Parents are asked to exercise discretion as this show does contain adult themes and language.
