"My comedy comes from a dark place… my asshole. There’s a fun house mirror down there, and a clown juggling."

— Charlie Ballard [Paraphrased]

"I hate karma"

— Charlie Ballard after falling down whilst performing mockery. 



An hour of spliced-up live comedy hosted by Mike Spiegelman at Layover Comedy Night, Tuesdays @ the Layover in Oakland. Comedians Charlie Ballard, Joe Gleckler, Jason Downs, Sammy Franco, OJ Patterson, Emily Heller, Will Ratblood, Abbey Jordan, and headliner Jesse Elias: Bringing The Funny Time And Time Again.

Then there’s forty minutes of oddnick tunes…

This was a good night.

Charlie Ballard is a really dynamic performer. It’ll be interesting to see if it translates well to DVD. Also I’ve never seen him do 5 minutes. Also featuring Heather Isaacs Royce and possibly Kaseem Bentley. ALSO A SYLVAN PRODUCTION. Also, I’ll be there.

I’ve been meaning to highlight Charlie for a while. A proper entry will be completed eventually. But in light of recent social justice, and a show at the Dark Room, and an awesome conversation about basketball the week before: I present a slice of Ballard.
