Time-waster of the day: April 27, 2011

Earlier this month, sketch comedy group Out of Bounds brought RISK! to Brown. RISK! is a podcast that provides comedians with a venue to tell embarrassing, taboo-laden stories about their lives. The event, held April 13 in MacMillan, was headlined by Michael Ian Black and also featured Brown faculty members Connie Crawford and Deak Nabers. In case you missed it, or didn’t feel like paying the $12 admission, the episode (titled “Education”) is now up on for free on iTunes.

The highlight? Hearing Deak detail his anxiety regarding the conception of his “f**king kid.” Although he’s arguably even more horrifyingly candid about his life in the average Simple Art of Murder lecture…


Brown Barrel: Many Famous Comedians Coming to Brown

Many more famous comedians than you might have expected are coming to Brown in April!

Andy Kindler, the judge from Last Comic Standing, will merge forces with the Brown Stand Up Comics on Friday, April 8 for a massive and FREE show in Salomon 101.

Then, and this is up-to-the-second news:

Michael Showalter has just confirmed that he will join his longtime partner-in-comedy and Stella co-star Michael Ian Black for the April 13th RISK! shows in MacMillan 117. They will tell embarrasing stories from their past. Brown students and faculty will open the show with stories of their own, including one from (and this was just confirmed this week) English professor extraordinaire Deak Nabers!
