Saturday, February 24, 7:30 p.m.
The Black Box Theatre, 1623 Fifth Avenue, Moline IL
Presented at Moline's Black Box Theatre in the style of a radio play complete with live music, sound effects, and actors with scripts in hand, three new episodes of the locally produced podcast All You Care to Eat will be performed by the area troupe Comedy Thingy on February 24 and taped in front of a live “studio” audience.
Formed in 2013, the four-man troupe Comedy Thingy delivers the original comedy stylings of Dave Bonde, Jeff De Leon, Rick Davis, and Clay Sander, all of whom hail from the Quad Cities area and can claim thousands of hours of making crowds laugh with organizations including ComedySportz, The Second City, and Chicago's iO (ImprovOlympic) theatre. Their acclaimed show Leopold! has been featured numerous times at the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival, and their Web-short series Coach Cliché was an official selection at the All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival.
The comedians' talents have also been showcased in six half-hour All You Care to Eat podcasts to date, the series having originated in 2017. The Black Box will host the recording of three additional episodes in an evening that also features Tom Maicke of 99 Plus Pirate Radio, Jessica Nicol White of ComedySportz, keyboardist Mike Brose, and Chicago-based comedian and show host Patrick Brennan.
Comedy Thingy's uncensored stylings make All You Care to Eat recommended for ages 18 and over, and tickets are $7.50 each for the night's three-show taping.
