Looking for an evening of laughter, check out the upcoming Nevada City Film Festival Winter Comedy Show, March 25th and 26th at the historic Nevada Theatre.
Andy Kindler is known in comedy circles as a troublemaker. Originally from New York, and now complaining from California, he annoys people all over the world. Andy was a frequent guest and correspond for The Late Show with David Letterman with over 40 appearances. Each summer at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal he delivers the State of the Industry address to a packed ballroom filled with comics and Hollywood industry types. He is infamous for his scathing attacks on the world of entertainment, including the previously taboo practice of making fun of his fellow comedians. Just as the comedy boom of the nineties was imploding, Andy wrote the “Hack’s for Handbook” for National Lampoon. This ‘how-to’ guide satirized and exposed tired comedy formulas.
Ian Abramson is from Moreno Valley, California, where he learned to walk, read, and drive, but not in that order. His stand-up is a mix of precise wordplay, longer emotionally absurd jokes, and larger conceptual pieces. In 2014, Chicago Magazine named Ian “Best Experimental Comedian” and also listed him in a separate article as one of the “16 Comedians You Should See This Fall”. In the fall of 2015 Ian was LA Weekly’s Best Up-and-Coming Comedian.
