On April 13th Animal House is bringing you our 2nd Annual Choice City Comedy Night...Sit!  Stay!  Speakeasy!

National Headliner:  Brandt Tobler

Brandt is a seasoned comedy veteran who has lived in Las Vegas and LA and travelled the country, performing all across the 50 states. He is the founder of the legendary Backyard Comedy Show. In the Backyard Show, Brandt created an independent, grass-roots, censor- and clique-free forum for comics to do what they love to do, which is perform, without having to deal with the confines of typical Vegas-casino red tape. Some of America’s funniest stand-up comedians have come to town to perform with Brandt.  He is also performing nightly all over Los Angeles and beyond. He always delivers a laid-back, offbeat, hilarious brand of comedy you are sure to enjoy.

Feature: Alicia Jacobs

Alicia performs all around Colorado and the Midwest bringing her quirky impressions and observations on life as a disgruntled retail employee. A finalist in both the Great American Comedy Festival and Comedyworks' New Faces Contest, Alicia is a proud cat-lover who is thrilled to support this great cause!

Feature:  Josh Skillman

Josh is a rising star from Fort Collins Colorado whose quick wit and personable sense of humor has made him a fan favorite. He has performed around the states and has developed a unique perspective on comedy. Utilizing his experience as a comic book and video game nerd, Josh creates stories that make him a bit of a lovable loser for audiences. Josh has been featured in the LocalMC magazine (a local entertainment mag) which put his name on the comedy map. You’ve seen Josh on stages around the US since 2010 and he’s been making audiences laugh until it hurts since the beginning. 

Emcee and Opener:  Scott Beasley

Local animal lover and professional voice talent Scott Beasley has been sharing his positive, upbeat (and off-beat), observational comedy with audiences as an amateur comedian since 2010.  He has had the honor of serving as emcee and host for a variety of Fort Collins events and organizations and he has been the host of the Comedy Night at The Mayor of Old Town since October of 2011.
