[image-1]Woolfe Street Playhouse features more than locally-grown theater (although we love all they have to offer in that regard). Next Tues. Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. you can get an earful of jokes from three comedians — New Orleans’ Matt Owens, NYC’s Paul Hooper, and Charleston’s own Patrick Arnheim. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online.
Owens has previously opened for Louis CK, Hannibal Buress, Mark Normand, and Dave Stone, was featured at Hell Yes Fest 2014-2016, and is the star of Pensacola Prophet, about the rise and fall of Florida’s Pecan Pinwheelie (for a taste of that production, see trailer below).
Hooper has been featured on Gotham Comedy Live, Red Eye with Tom Shillue on Fox, the HBO Comedy Festival in Vegas, and the Vancouver Comedy Fest, and he was a finalist in the 30th annual Seattle International Comedy competition. You can check out his solo album, Tense and Uncomfortable.
Arnheim, a Village Rep ensemble member, is a graduate of Broadway’s Circle in the Square Theater School and has appeared in over 30 national commercials, and co-starred on everyone’s favorite crime show, Law & Order: Criminal Intent. You can check him out in town later this year when he plays Joseph “John” Merrick in Threshold Rep’s Elephant Man.
