Comedy has many faces and many voices and can be appreciated by anyone, anywhere. Last Saturday, VisArts was proud to introduce a new Stand-Up Comedy Series to Rockville, MD with Cool Cow Comedy. The show was sold-out and everyone was falling-out-of-their seats with laughter. See what Comedian Host, Rahmein Mostafavi
, had to say about the big success.
The turn out on Saturday was great, is Cool Cow Comedy planning to come back again to VisArts?
Yes, the crowd was great and the venue was perfect. I and Cool Cow will be back Friday, March 15th and once a month there after for the next several months. Did you feel a lot of pressure bringing stand-up comedy to the suburbs? What were your expectations in terms of the crowd? What was it like performing at VisArts? Different? Exciting? Fun?
Just the usual pre-show nerves. I do comedy all over the place and great crowds are nurtured by great comics. I bring very solid comedians to every show; that gives me confidence that no matter where the show is, it will be a success. Doing a show in a new venue is always exciting, I love meeting new people and introducing high quality comedy to a new community.VisArts is glad to have Cool Cow Comedy by apart of our Special Programs, when did you think to work with VisArts?
Karen Askins actually found me. She was looking for new programs for VisArts and in her research found that I've produced shows at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA, the Green Room at the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse and The Old Silk Mill in Fredericksburg, VA. She could see that the VisArts community and the city of Rockville would appreciate the quality level that Cool Cow brings to the stage. Tell us more about the comedy line-up last Saturday. What kind of programming and line-ups do you have planned for the future at VisArts? What can our visitors look forward to?
The comedians at the first show and for all shows that I produce are just as funny as any comedian you will see at any comedy club in the nation. Some of them have TV creds, some major club creds, but every single one of them is a hot up-and-coming comedian or a proven veteran of comedy.What is a good closing joke that will have our readers/visitors laughing out loud and leaving with wanting to come back for more?
Not sure if this is funny in writing, but on the comment cards one person suggested that the feature comedian, Tyler Richardson, should probably not do any Jewish jokes in Rockville. In the same pile of comment cards, someone wrote, "You guys should do more Jewish jokes, they would do great in Rockville".
Stay connected with VisArts and look forward to the return of Cool Cow Comedy to VisArts on Friday, March 15th and once a month there after for the next several months.
