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!

In 2014 he recorded a Half Hour Special which aired on Comedy Central July 25th, as well as being a featured performer on Season 8 of Last Comic Standing, where he drew praise from Roseanne & Russell Peters. 2014 also saw the release of his debut solo album, “Smiling at Wolves” which reached #2 on the i-Tunes comedy charts.

Those Weird Guys
Those Weird Guys
Those Weird Guys are actually our family friends’ sons. They weirdly made the journey east from Cali about a year back and have been on the grind ever since. Their trolling antics have been known to piss some off, but somehow they don’t give a fuck. They’re like Eric Andre in that respect. ‬Let us know if you need anything else from us!

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."
