On Saturday, January 27, stand-up comedian Connor McSpadden, a prodigy in the craft of roast comedy, appeared at the Slice of Life show at the Old Town Clovis spot, Di Cicco’s Italian Restaurant. Serving up his signature “bro” style of humor, his rise in the comedy world is anything but a laughing matter.

We always enjoy the opportunity to get to know members of the arts and entertainment community better, whether it be through local actor/director/artist/musician profiles or q and a’s. It is fun and interesting to get to know each performer as more than just some person on a stage entertaining us.

On Tuesday, January 16, stand-up comedian Quincy Johnson II rolled into Clovis to do a set at Di Cicco’s Italian Restaurant in the heart of Old Town for their Just The Tips Tuesdays where well established career funny raconteurs either from LA or out of state come to perform for tip money, generously donated by attendees.

So, what does it take to write a comedy for the Rogue Festival? I thought it would be easy. After all, I watch Saturday Night Live and the nightly news. Well, now it’s 24-hour breaking news. Tweet! Ah, too easy! Then it hit me. The perfect subject for a Rogue comedy—me and my experience as a nude model. I mean at age seventy-seven it’s a little late for a career in nude modeling.

Nykole Sullivan and her mom Terry Hibbs put together a bistro where artists can express their passion. Nykole’s husband Bob says that their bistro is “a family restaurant first, but you come here for the music.” All fourteen indoor tables are in line with the stage as a focal point. New speakers and a stage that fits over the outside fountain in the patio area brings the entertainment outdoors as well.

Are You Rogueing This Year?

‘Rogueing’ isn’t a dance move, fad diet, or the latest hip exercise program. Simply put, it’s attending performances at Fresno’s Rogue Performance Festival, commonly known as just “the Rogue.” Although its popularity has continued to increase, there are still people around here who haven’t heard of this showcase of independent performance. If you are a member of that group, you’ve been missing out on one of the most innovative events in Fresno, so keep reading. If you’re a Rogue regular, you know what I’m talking about, but keep reading anyway.

Is Your Therapist Near A Bakery? started out as a funny story I told at a birthday roast for my son on his 24th birthday. Considering that my father was a serial suicide attempter, who “had the urge, but not the talent for suicide,” my sister had a borderline personality that always wandered over the border, and my brother’s story is too dark to tell until the end of the show, the humor throughout the piece is surprising and welcomed. The audience cries a little knowing a laugh will arrive in the next minute.

Fox’s Tuesday night Scream Queens is the best comedy I have seen since I first saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show many years ago. Led by the Original Scream Queen herself, Jamie Lee Curtis, the cast of older favorites and fresh young faces is a balanced mix of talents and abilities.

The Intern is easily one of my favorite movies of the year so far! It’s comedy, drama and just a feel good kind of movie. The premise is also a lot of fun and the cast is great.
