I don’t usually put up too many posts about other two-person groups. But today I make an exception because, honestly, these guys are fantastic.
GIANT ROBOT formed for similar reasons to FUN GRIP. The two guys in it were in other troupes and they kept getting notes about going too weird, instead of sticking with the usual domestic/roommate/ talking head scenes expected of them.
I absolutely love the fact they actually called themselves GIANT ROBOT. Great name for them and it has become a sort of motto for FUN GRIP.
Jan. 31 and Feb 1, 2014 Jeff and Brad performed at the Comedy Parlor in Tulsa. Owned and operated by Jason Watts, the venue is only 2 months old. It was in a nice little area of Downtown Tulsa with shops, bars and restuarants all around it. They even put a short article about us in their program for the week.
Getting out of Tulsa was slow going though. It snowed he morning we left tand iced all the roads over. The 5 hour trip back took 8 total. Here’s Ruth by the car as we were about to depart Tulsa…
