Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction
Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction
Making quarterly appearances at Union Hall since December of 2012, Bryan Cook’s hit show Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction is a live comedy event (and Nerdist podcast) which was just recognized as one of LA’s top comedy shows by the LA Weekly. Each show features comics writing pieces of erotic fan fiction based upon their own whims or audience suggestions.

Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction is held monthly at the Virgil in Los Angeles, CA and has been featured as part of the Outside Lands Festival (SF), Bridgetown Comedy Festival (Portland), Riot LA (Los Angeles), San Francisco Sketch Fest, Just For Laughs (Chicago), Bumbershoot (Seattle) and more.

See why Rolling Stone said, “Its audacity alone is compelling enough, but in its best moments, the gross jokes transcend porn mechanics to become a titillating delight.”

His debut CD, Vegan Mind Meld, was one of iTunes’ top ten best-selling comedy albums in 2010, followed by Meat Robot in 2013 and his one-hour Netflix special Small Dork and Handsome in 2014. The Comedians magazine calls him “a comedy machine, in the best possible way. the way that some machines vend soda or prevent other machines from killing future revolutionaries – that’s how Myq Kaplan does comedy: relentlessly, methodically, unblinkingly.”
