Rory Scovel at Liquid Laughs

Friday, June 12-Sunday, June 14


Political satirist Will Durst said "Comedy is defiance. It's a snort of contempt in the face of fear and anxiety. And it's the laughter that allows hope to creep back on the inhale."

South Carolina-born comic and writer Rory Scovel is a master of creeping hope. Over the past few years, he has landed on Huffington Post's "Guide to New Comedy Albums 2011," Variety Magazine's "10 Comics to Watch 2012" and in spots on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The Nerdist. The bearded, affable-looking comedian will also appear in TruTV's first scripted comedy, Those Who Can't, scheduled to air in 2016.

If you need a remedy for fear, anxiety or anything else that ails you, remember: Laughter is the best medicine and Dr. Rory Scovel will happily write you a prescription.
