Rise Comedy Festival 2022 – Patrick & Nnamdi, District 9, Lynn & Andrew, Four First Names
- 9:00 – 10:30 PM – $13 adv/$16 door
- District 9: District 9 is a team of BIPOC improvisers that build worlds, create characters, and tell original stories – authentically and unapologetically. Get to know the performers as people based on stories they tell prompted by audience suggestions, then watch the improv unfold!
- Lynn & Andrew: Lynn & Andrew present “The Couple Next Door” – a voyeuristic look into the private lives of the characters all around us. Lynn & Andrew will explore the relationships of these couples and the stories that unfold in the world around them
- Nnamdi & Patrick: Nnamdi and Patrick will take suggestions from the audience and spin them into a fast paced, honest, fun filled comedic piece. The two have been performing together all over the world for years and blend a number of different styles to make a unique memorable show.
- Four First Names: A young Carolina couple experiencing the beauty of natural childbirth in their own tub. A 12-year-old Tennessee girl gaining confidence and empowerment from an impromptu trip with her previously misunderstood bedroom monster. A Virginia woman discovering improved self-esteem and an equal footing with her overbearing mother after losing more than 100 pounds. And a Colorado couple whose mountaintop engagement provided a sneak peek of their journey together all the way into the afterlife. What do they all have in common? They were celebrated with their own musical through the narrative interpretations of Four First Names. Join Chris Barry, Richard Paul and a rotating music director in an uplifting and humorous musical exploration of a pivotal moment from an audience member’s life.
