MERMUTANTS Tickets! Feb 21st @ 9:30 PM

MERMUTANTS!

The oceans have risen, swallowing up all but Florida’s highest hill. As the surviving humans scramble to stay above sea level, highly-evolved sea people thrive below, in the toxic neon slime of the polluted ocean. Through puppetry, storytelling, and original music, Mermutants! explores the dystopian gated community of the last humans, the colorful underwater world of feral mermutants, singing clams, and the bottom-dwelling sea witch, and the garbage-laden shoreline where their worlds collide. In this apocalyptic twist on the classic fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, one misfit human must choose whether to sacrifice family, home, and all they know in exchange for the ultimate metamorphosis.

#NOCAF2015 Friday, Jan 30th: Tonight’s Headliners!!!

Friday JAN 30th:

 

Friday 8PM- Zach McGovern and Brendon Walsh:

zach_brendonZach is a standup comedian and actor originally from Chicago who now calls New York City home. In the 5 years he’s been in NYC he’s honed his chops at all the major clubs as well as the not so major ones and every single dive bar with a half working mic. Zach has been featured on MTV, Rooftop Comedy, and ComedyTime TV to name a few (as in everything he’s done). He was also the warm up comic for the 2 year run of the only British to American TV show ever that didn’t become successful. Zach went to Rock Valley College, for awhile, and now lives in Astoria, NY.

Brendon Walsh established himself in comedy in Austin, TX. In 2004 Brendan won the “Funniest Person In Austin” contest and that same year he appeared on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” as his original character, “Scary Monster” (a terrible monster stand up comedian). He was voted “Best Stand-Up Comedian” in the Austin Chronicle’s “Readers Poll” two years in a row as well as appearing on season 9 of Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and on season 4 of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”

In 2008, Brandon was featured in the “New Faces” showcase at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, where he returned in 2010 to tape a special for HBO called “Funny As Hell”. Most recently, Berndon has appeared on CONAN on TBS and two episodes of “John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show” on Comedy Central. He also recorded a Half Hour stand up special for Comedy Central which will be released in the spring of 2012.

In 2009, Bornden sold a scripted comedy, “Crowded Apartment” to Spike TV and currently has an untitled scripted project in development with Comedy Central. You can also see Brndeon regularly on “The World’s Dumbest” on Tru TV.

Friday 10 PM -DJ Dougg Pound
DJ Dougg Pound“DJ Douggpound is the alter ego of Doug Lussenhop, who’s written for shows like The Eric Andre Show, Portlandia, and Tim & Eric’s Awesome Show, but might be best known as the guy behind that distinctive Tim & Eric editing style. I think of him almost like the Del Close of internet videos in that he’s the most influential person nobody’s ever heard of. Anyways, Up Our Holes is an album of songs that have that same sensibility. Genre-wise, it kind of shifts from dance rap to really aggressively dry sketches to…uhh I dunno, it’s just supposed to be fun, and it is. So there you go. It’s worth noting that the songs on here have kind of deceptively big ideas (more than his earlier CD Pound It), like “Find Me,” a song about needing to get away from the city that even name-checks Christopher McCandless, or “Fuck No,” maybe the most “traditional” “comedy song,” about not wanting to give someone a ride to a party. Also, as with most of his other projects, there are connections to the larger world of Pound House, Awesome Show, etc. that you can appreciate if you’re into that, but if that’s not your thing, that’s totally cool too!”
