From FB Event Page: APRIL 24th America’s Funnyman NEIL HAMBURGER is the hardest working comedian in existence, performing up to 399 shows a year internationally to critical acclaim and audience bewilderment. He’s toured as the hand-picked opener for Tenacious D, Tim & Eric, and Faith No More, and his TV credits include Fox News’ Red Eye, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Tom Green Live, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. On his 2011 UK tour Neil played to packed houses at the Edinburgh Fringe and completed a 10-show stint at London’s Soho Theatre. His most recent album “Live At Third Man” was produced by Jack White in Nashville; an earlier Hamburger album was among SPIN’s “40 Greatest Comedy Albums Of All Time.” He'll be joined by Major Entertainer Mike H, his touring opening act. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqnC264jYiM&feature=youtu.be More info on Neil: http://www.americasfunnyman.com/ === PSALM ONE is the first emcee we've featured from the Rhymesayers label, and we can't wait to see her set! Hailing from Hip Hop's rising hotbed of talent, Psalm One has been called one of the next to blow up by the: Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Times, The Onion and URB Magazine's Next 100. A Southside Chicago native, Psalm has been reppin' the windy city on the mic since early '98. While studying chemistry at the University of Illinois Psalm fittingly self-released her debut CD Bio-Chemistry in 2002 (later re-released in '04). Called a cross between Lauryn Hill and Devin The Dude, Psalm stands ready to follow in the footsteps of Chitown greats like Kanye West, Common and Twista, while taking her place next to up and comers like Lupe Fiasco. Readied with her Rhymesayers debut, the self-proclaimed quirky B-Girl and former chemist ushers in a new breed of "Rapper Girl" with the release of The Death of Frequent Flyer. http://rhymesayers.com/psalmone === GYMSHORTS are a local Providence punk band that's been making a lot of noise lately. They've got a song called "You Olneyville Once". They're going to tear shit up like they're supposed to. http://gymshorts.bandcamp.com/ === We're also trying something new out in APRIL... instead of a rap battle, we're opening up the field and presenting a $100 CASH PRIZE OPEN MIC. That means you get 3 minutes on the mic /stage to do whatever you want. Rap, dance, read a poem, tell jokes. The crowd will select a winner and we will pay them and give them free stuff. Open mics have a great potential to draw out weirdos, and it's the weirdos we're after. Come get your money. All of this and of course, the usual wrestling, games and bedlam from your hosts Madge of Honor and B. Dolan. See you soon, Churchgoers!
