Event description
Comedy Hijinx from Young Southpaw and crew featuring Dave Hill!

About this Event

Young Southpaw is thrilled to announce the third New Haven edition of BAT SOUP. Come down for another evening of hijinx and hilarity with the comedy night’s regulars, new faces, and New York City’s multi-talented and hilarious Dave Hill. Joining Dave and Southpaw are the superfunny Brooke Louellen, Dan Brown, Jimmy Blair, Mega Harrison, and Nick Grunerud, for what Dan Mims of The Daily Nutmeg calls an “insane human tornado”.

Dave Hill is a comedian, writer, musician, actor, radio host, and man-about-town originally from Cleveland, Ohio but now living in New York City in a totally sweet apartment with a party deck and everything. Hot chicks come over to hang out and eat cheese plates and stuff with him all the time and it’s awesome.

Anyway, on the show business front, Dave has appeared on Netflix’s The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Amazon’s The Tick, Comedy Central’s @midnight and Inside Amy Schumer programs, TBS' Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, TV Land's The Jim Gaffigan Show, and TruTV's Comedy Knockout among a bunch of others. Dave also starred in his own television program The King of Miami on the Mojo Network, which was cancelled even though Dave really liked it. Oh, and Dave was a correspondent on Hoppus on Music starring Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus on the Fuse channel, which ruled. Dave has been on other shows and in obscure movies too but let’s keep moving for now.

Dave performs live comedy over the world and has appeared at such festivals as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, SXSW, San Francisco Sketchfest, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Sasquatch Festival, Bumbershoot, Bonnaroo, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, the Crap Comedy Festival in Oslo, Outside Lands in San Francisco, and then some other ones too. He has also performed comedy at Sing Sing Correctional Facility twice and even ripped some guitar solos inside a Mexican prison once. Dave hosts the hilarious History Fluffer and Dave Hill’s Podcasting Incident podcasts. In 2007, Variety magazine named Dave one of their “10 Comedians to Watch,” something he still won’t shut up about.

Dave is the author of two books, Tasteful Nudes (St. Martins Press, 2012) and Dave Hill Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (Blue Rider Press 2016). His third, Parking the Moose: One American's Epic Quest to Uncover His Incredible Canadian Roots (DoubleDay Canada), is released on October 8th. He has also written for the New York Times, GQ, Salon, The Paris Review, McSweeney’s, New York Observer, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, VICE, Guitar World, and a bunch of other places too. Comedy legend Dick Cavett called Dave “a major figure among American comic writers, past and present,” which is pretty much the coolest thing that has ever happened as far as Dave is concerned.

Young Southpaw is the surrealist alter ego of writer and musician Aug Stone. In December 2018, Stone moved back to his home state of Connecticut after 20 years in Boston, London, Los Angeles, and Nashville making music. He switched focus from songwriting to exploring his love of surreal and absurdist humor in the guise of Young Southpaw, who has since been described as “the ghost of Mitch Hedberg meets the ghost of Mark Twain” and “Huckleberry S. Thompson”. BAT SOUP is a vehicle for Southpaw to stretch out and flow a la the deceptively digressive, interconnected nature of his The Young Southpaw Part On An Hour podcast.

popbollocks.com recently reviewed The Young Southpaw Part Of An Hour podcast as:

“From the existential thread that ties Jean-Paul Sartre to Jon Bon Jovi, to the skinny on what’s floating in TLC’s ‘Waterfalls’, and the possibility that Al Pacino is coaching boxing kangaroos in space, wise-fool Southpaw's ramblings lead listeners on a surreal journey through doors they didn't even know existed, into a highly original, deeply funny land of pop culture confusion.”

The Young Southpaw live shows have been a potent distillation of this absurdity. You can explore more at https://www.youngsouthpaw.com/

Young Southpaw will be hosting the evening as well as performing a set.

Brooke Louellen charms audiences with hilarious tales of dating disasters, womanly woes, and the Mississippi misadventures of her outlandish Southern family.

This Dan Brown did not write The Da Vinci Code. If he had, it would have been much funnier.

The quick-witted and in-your-face comedy stylings of Jimmy Blair are unprecedented. His riffs off-the-cuff are what other comedians could only wish was their written material. The Baltimore native has wowed crowds all over the country and has always left people wanting more.

Mega Harrison became a comic because she told someone she already was one. The crushing anxiety of living with such a spurious claim forced her into a life of publicly confiding her secrets for the amusement of strangers.

Nick Grunerud is the British James Blake. He also performs music under the alias Underwear, but don’t tell him I told you.
