Cynic Cave presents Ian Karmel

Ian Karmel is a comedian whose style zig-zags between the eclectic and the universal, appealing both to crowds who own homes in the suburbs, and crowds just staying with their parents in the suburbs until they figure some things out. Coming from an improv background, including time with The Groundlings and the Upright Citizens Brigade, Ian entered the world of stand-up with a unique perspective that helped him win the 2011 Funniest Person in Portland, 2010 Portland Amateur Comedy Competition and has given him the opportunity to perform at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Austin’s Moontower Comedy and Oddity Fest, Portland’s Helium Comedy Club, Philadelphia’s Helium Comedy Club, Austin’s Cap City Comedy Club, Seattle’s Comedy Underground and Los Angeles’ Comedy Store. In addition to stand-up, Karmel has appeared on television, playing a character in IFC’s sketch show Portlandia and as a post-game analyst and commentator for the Portland Trailblazers. Since moving to LA from Portland, he is now a writer/performer on Chelsea Lately.

8pm show featuring Josef Anolin 
10pm show featuring Kelly Anneken

Both Shows hosted by George Chen & Kevin O’Shea 

Tonight’s performance is made possible in part through a gift by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts through the YBCAway program

Kelly Anneken (@thefatling on twitter) is a San Francisco stand up comic, the comedy curator over at Pandora Radio and enjoys a nice biography. A lot. She picked her current three favorite biographies (Hallie Flanagan, Madame de Stael and Cleopatra) and we go THROUGH them. In the midst we weed off talking about The Babysitter Club books and American Girl Doll books. It’s great.
Disclaimer: This episode was recorded LIVE at Lost Weekend Video in San Francisco http://www.lostweekendvideo.com/Lost_Weekend_Video/The_Cinecave!.html, and there wasn’t an audio guy. So you got ME. And Patrick did his best to mitigate how hot the recording was … but it’s a little buzzy. It’s a little Ruth Buzzi. Get it? And… sorry. It was too great to bail on… so consider it in “podcast glory.”
