Sherbino Theater brings comedy to the stage on January 12 with Quevaughn Bryant’s “One Man’s Stand”, with openers Maurice Northup and Reza Asgari. One Man’s Stand is a show that is exactly what it sounds like; combining a mix of comedy, theater and interactivity to help us look at the world around us in a uniquely comical way. Created and written by the times we live in and the people Quevaughn Bryant has met along the way, media, religion, politics,relationships and social norms are all fair game when he hits the stage. He says, “This show will lead you to confirm some beliefs as well as challenge the status quo,in a way that will leave you laughing as well as thinking long after the show is over.” His unapologetically opinionated style of comedy mixed with a heavy dose of old school common sense is what makes his comedy really hit home with his audience.
Quevaughn Bryant pronounced (q-von) may be a strange name to look at but his comedy is certainly no stranger to America. his unique brand of society based humor has long been a favorite of audiences across the country, consistently proving to be a refreshing change from the comedy norm. His comedy show combines provocative social commentary, complete silliness and stand up comedy. He has spent over 20 years performing for audiences of all types throughout the United States as well as abroad including The United Kingdom, Australia and Paris, France. His numerous television appearances include “NBC’s Last Comic Standing”, Comedy Central, “Politically incorrect with Bill Maher” ,“MTV’s Real World” and Mr. Thomas in the award winning movie “Greencastle”.
Quevaughn is joined by Maurice Northup, winner of HBO’s Standup Stando, and Reza Agari, whose comic approach is perfectly summed up by Bren Alison of hysterical events as: “You’d better come armed with a sarcasm-proof poncho, or you’ll get rained out Reza-style by sharp, quick-witted banter. Reza Asgari never fails to deliver a lively, honest, and outrageous performance. His fast paced style takes you on a ride through the deep, dark, and bizarre. When most people are casually observing, Reza is at the ready with a razor sharp pencil-of-the-weird to visually record the absurdity of human nature, so he can deliver it to you raw and uncensored.”
One Man’s Stand will be offered January 12 at the Sherbino Theater (604 Clinton St.) in Ridgway, CO. Doors open at 6:30, the show will begin at 7:00. Admission is $20. For more information, visit sherbino.org or call 970-318-0150.
