9th Annual Los Angeles Comedy Festival

11 Jun

The Hinges @ the 9th Annual LA Improv Comedy Festival

"Consider your answer carefully - Librarian Kitty is a cruel mistress"

Boy, have we got something special for you guys. Your very own Hinges have been invited to perform at the 9th Annual Los Angeles Improv Comedy Festival!

This is a huge honor for us, as invitations are rarely extended to groups outside of LA. It’s like we found the golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s magical Laugh Factory, except there’s no creepy psychedelic boat ride (that’s the after-party, apparently).

Not only that, but we’re in the running for an Audience Choice award! So lemme just ask you this: how cool would it be for us San Diego outsiders to come in and storm LA’s top festival by winning that award? I’ll tell you:

It’d be Top Gun awesome.

It’d be Stairway To Heaven awesome.

It’d be, like, bacon awesome.

But we can’t do this alone – now more than ever, we need you, our loyal fans, to support us! Tickets are guaranteed to sell out quick, so buy a ticket today, call your LA friends and come watch us make comedy history!

Whassat? You want more, you say? More, Oliver?? How about the chance to rub shoulders with some of TV’s hottest stars? No kidding, there is a veritable constellation of talent scheduled to perform, including:

  • Community‘s Joel McHale & Danny Pudi
  • The Office‘s Angela Kinsey
  • Saturday Night Live‘s Paul Brittain
  • And more

It’s so bright! My eyes! Ze goggles do nothing!

“But Hinges bloggers, what about your recent show at iO West, in Hollywood, the capitol of all humor and culture in the world? (Snarf, snarf). Will we ever get a recap of that legendary event? Snarf?”

Oh, Snarf, you know we’d never leave you out in the cold when it comes to recapping our greatest show in (goldfish) memory! (more…)
