No Sleep in the CLE Podcast With Justin Markert and Comedian Jimmy Graham


1 comment
In the second episode of the No Sleep in the CLE podcast this week (!) Justin Markert sits down with Jimmy Graham. Jimmy is a fascinating comedian who is a part of the Accidental Comedy Club collective run by Ramon Rivas. While he'd probably make fun of us for saying this, his comedy is almost performance art — he pushes boundaries. He once won a comedy "contest" and burned his winnings in front of all the losers. He tells a great story about how, to the horror of the audience at a West 6th club, he once incorporated a homeless man (or was he) into his routine.

On Monday May 18th the Accidental Comedy Club presents Nick Vatterott at Mahall's. Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door. The rest of the Accidental Comedy Club crew will also be doing sets. Find tickets for all shows here.
