Comedian to Poke Fun at Dating and Relationships for Valentine’s Day Comedy Show
Comedy Central’s Andy Woodhull to perform two shows in downtown Asheville on Fri. 2/14
On Friday, February 14th, Funny Business at the Millroom Presents two very special Valentine’s Day Comedy Shows featuring national headliner Andy Woodhull in downtown Asheville at The Millroom at 7:00pm and 9:30pm. Some of Andy’s jokes poke fun at dating and relationships, online dating, what it would be like to date a vampire, and pen pals with a significant other.
Andy made his television debut on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. This came the same year that he was invited to perform at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, and The Great American Comedy Festival. He has also been featured on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom radio show, and was a semi-finalist in CMT’s “Next Big Comic”. He won the Best of the Midwest Competition at Gilda’s Laugh Fest in 2010. His 2012 album release “Lucy” was named top 10 comedy albums of the year by comedyreviews.com. In 2004 Andy won the St. Louis leg of the Laugh Across America Contest and was invited to perform at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival. In 2005 Andy’s unique sense of humor won him the Carnival Comedy Challenge in Chicago. In 2008 Andy won the Butterfinger ComedyShowdown, an online joke-writing contest that ended with a live show final round at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles. Andy has a residence in Chicago, where he was named one of four comedians to watch by the Chicago Tribune. Andy prides himself on his writing, and always delivers with great new material so if you have seen him once come again and see what is new.
Special guest for the evening is comedian Gilbert Lawand. Gilbert is an Atlanta based standup comic and producer of a weekly show called Comedy Gold. Gilbert’s background is a pretty unique one: born in Baghdad to Catholic parents before moving to a farm in a small town in South Georgia when he was 6 years old. All of which probably explains why he seems anxious pretty much all the time and has made pacing somewhat of an art form. To relax, Gilbert can be found enjoying some of the simple things in life: fine wine, stimulating conversation and long romantic walks through strip clubs. Host for the evening is Asheville comedian Grayson Morris.
