GIG: August 18th, 8pm, Kennett Flash – The Openers of Comedy!

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of being the opening band for Better Than Bacon, a deeelightful comedy improv theater troupe at The Kennett Flash.  We got the gig because Todd Chappelle (their regular opener) was booked elsewhere that night.  It’s also come to our attention that comedy music duo Dave & Brian have also opened for Better Than Bacon and brought down the house, just as Todd does. 

Todd, being a make-it-happen kinda guy, approached the Kennett Flash about an OPENERS OF COMEDY show featuring us, Todd Chappelle of course, and Dave & Brian, and the Flash jumped all over it. Woooot!

The Kennett Flash is a fabulous venue. It’s a sit-down-and-listen kind of place, so it’s more like a concert than a typical gig. People actually listen, which is a pretty decadent experience for performers. The Kennett Flash also serves light food (sammiches, munchies) and it’s a BYOB, so you don’t have to starve. Sweet!

We recognize that we’re definitely the least funny of the three acts– we don’t really consider ourselves musical comedians… we just have some dorky tunes that make people chuckle. But we’ve been known to be sincere, too. We’ll try to keep the sincerity down that night. Either way, you’re in for some MAXX LULZ, SRSLY, just with Todd and Dave & Brian alone. Consider us the gravy. We might sweeten the deal, but the main course is more than enough on its own.

The evening’s festivities start at 8pm. There is no opening band– we’re all opening for each other. (So get there on time, is what we’re saying.)


WHO: Todd Chapelle, Dave & Brian, and Hot Breakfast! trade sets for a night of comedy music
WHEN: Saturday, August 18th, 8pm
WHERE: The Kennett Flash– 102 Sycamore Alley, Kennett Square, PA 19348 484-732-8295.
TICKETS: Tickets can be purchased online for $12, or for $15 at the door.
PARKING: You can park in the teeeeeeeny lot behind the venue (it fills up fast), or you can park on the street.
FOOD: The Kennett Flash serves light fare– sammiches, snacks, drinks. It’s also a BYOB thing, but they do charge a corkage and a glass fee, so be prepared for that. There are about a zillion wonderful places to get dinner in Kennett Square, so if you’re looking for a bigger meal, get into town early.

Hope to see you there– it’s going to be a really fun (and funny!) night!

Your pal,

[…] [] This Saturday, August 18 @ 8:00pm SHARP: Kennett Flash(102 Sycamore Alley, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania).  We are super-duper excited about this show!  Three ”comedy music” acts are sharing this dorktastic bill– that’s us, as well as Dave & Brian, and our new BFF Todd Chappelle.  We admit we are the least comedy-centric of the three acts, but we’ve got a few new silly songs to try out on you. Grammarians will (hopefully) appreciate Matt’s new tune “The Garden of Bad Metaphors.”  Tickets can be purchased in advance for $12, or at the door for $15.  You can find out more details about the show/venue/tickets/backstory here.

Thank you so, so much! 🙂
