PICTURE THIS!
PICTURE THIS!
PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Brandie Posey & Sam Varela: two girls who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be. Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in Hollywood, CA, SF, NYC and Portland. Picture This! has also debuted in Toronto, New Zealand and Australia! The comedians don’t know what the animators are drawing and the animators don’t know how the comedians will react.

It may be weird.

It may different.

But it will be FUN!

Drew Michael
Drew Michael
Drew Michael is a Chicago comedian who looks at life from a dark, cerebral point of view. His rumination on relationships, ex-girlfriends, bestiality, pedophilia, God, religion, Hitler, government, life and death has prompted TimeOut Chicago to call him, “Smart, funny and unabashedly crass.”

Drew is a founding member of the comedy collective, Comedians You Should Know. The OnionAV Club says, “The genuine quality of talent on display is unrivaled in Chicago.” The group released a self-titled album that debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts.

Drew released his first album Lovely in 2013. The album debuted #1 on the iTunes comedy charts, which is surprising considering it’s this really pretentious love-concept album that nobody understands. He followed that release with Funny To Death, on Comedy Central Records and recently released his first special for Comedy Central (The Half Hour), in the fall of 2016. Drew is also a writer for Saturday Night Live.

See Drew now, while you still can, before he is viciously murdered by an ex-girlfriend, an unruly audience member, or himself.

Ian Fidance
Ian Fidance
Ian Fidance is an offbeat yet upbeat stand up comic & writer from Wilmington, Delaware who calls New York City his home; Brooklyn to be specific, but you can already tell by his mustache.

A delicious cup of tea best drank live, his comedy has been described as "bizarre yet funny" by The Interrobang. A popular guest on SiriusXM radio's "The Bennington Show," he's been featured in the Boston, Brooklyn, and New York Comedy Festivals, written & performed in sketches for Huffington Post, Above Average, and Conde Nast, was commissioned by Nike to write & star in a live media presentation for the unveiling of their "Hyper" line of athletic wear, and made his stand up TV debut on the third season of AXS TV's "Gotham Comedy Live."
