The Super Serious Show
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2012
To make the best comedy show in Los Angeles, take a bit of sketch, mix in a large helping of stand-up, then add generous helping of character comedy and turn the temperature up to high.
The Super Serious Show has fast built up a reputation as one of the best nights out in LA and as such attracts the top comedy names in the US. Now the hot-shot young producers behind it are bringing their magic formula along to the Edinburgh Fringe for the very first time with a mix of some of the hottest young comics in the US and some of the best performers in Edinburgh in August.
Conceived as an antidote to the middle ground, lifeless comedy clubs that occupy many US cities, Super Serious presents live comedy in an intimate, loose artistic and elevated endeavour for both audiences and performers. The show features a seamless and well- curated variety of performers and styles – from stand-up to oddball characters, sketch comedy to music comedy + comedic videos – it’s all fair game. And with Super Serious, unlike most live comedy showcases, the headliner hosts the show. It’s not just a hit and run evening, performers and audience share in the fun of the show to create an atmosphere in which everyone in the room is there to have a fantastic time.
