Comedian and storyteller Emmett Montgomery performs April 22 at BPA
Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents
An Evening with Emmett Montgomery, Comedian & Storyteller
Friday, April 22 @ 8:00 p.m.
Comedian and storyteller Emmett Montgomery performs one night only on April 22 at Bainbridge Performing Arts. He’s joined by special guest John Osebold and host Josh Chambers. Named Seattle Weekly’s “Best Comedian 2015,” Emmett was part of the top 100 in NBC’s Last Comic Standing Season 9 (2015).
Hailing froom Utah, Emmett has lived in Seattle where he’s been performing on and off the stage for over a decade. When he is not wandering the country telling jokes and falling in love with America, he produces local shows that focus on building community, pushing the limits of what it means to be a performer, and celebrating the unique beauty of the city he lives in (Weird and Awesome with Emmett Montgomery, The Magic Hat). Emmett performs at festivals across the country including the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Sasquatch Music Festival and the Women In Comedy Festival, and he can be heard on podcasts like Risk!, Put Your Hands Together and Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction. He has worked with the brilliant Maria Bamford, Dave Chappelle and TJ Miller. Visit online at www.emmettmontgomery.com.
John Osebold is a writer, musician, notorious list-maker, and performer in Seattle. His works range from a symphony in a remodeled church to Spidermann, a surreal comedy “musical” that opened in NYC next to the Broadway Spider-Man musical. In addition, he’s a member of sketch comedy troupe The Habit and art band “Awesome.” A staff writer at woot.com, he also posts a new album every December at josebold.com and generates short fiction, unstageable plays, and other literary flora & fauna for Poetry Northwest, City Arts Magazine, Filter Literary Journal, and The Monarch Review.
