Fueled by Desperation Comedy Tour Brings Local Headliners to Liquid

Friday, Dec. 30


If you're looking for a way to lube your funny bone and fortify your liver prior to New Year's Eve, check out Liquid's last Fueled By Desperation Comedy Tour of 2011.

Headliner Gabe Dunn will be joined by feature act Olek Szewczyk and MC Aaron Sheehan for a night of live comedy.

"The audience can expect a very professional show," said Dunn. "We've been doing shows out of Liquid now since December 2009, so don't expect amateur hour--expect a well-honed, well-crafted comedy show. These shows are going to be the best of the best."

Dunn explained that Liquid is going to start primarily hosting acts from out of town in an effort to expand into a comedy venue. So this will be the last local-headlining show for a while. But Dunn is hoping to get scheduled in for a few feature spots as Liquid moves into its new format.

"It's going to be an incredible opportunity for Boise to see all these comedians who we are totally missing out on because we haven't had a great club in quite a while," said Dunn.

For this pre-hiatus performance, Dunn plans to incorporate material about the holidays.

"I definitely have 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' from a retailer's perspective," said Dunn. "And I have some sad Christmas carols that I do. It's really going to be an outstanding show."
