Guys! We figured it out! Shitty movies that we love, that’s what we’re doin right now! So get you hair in a pony, wax those mustachios and put on those knee highs cuz we are watching and talking about the 1974 classic dystopian shit show known as Zardoz, starring Sean Connery, and Charlotte Rampling. And a giant floating head named Zardoz that pukes out guns at red brief wearing ‘Brutals.’

Also Jacob Eaton is guest, singer, songwriter, musician. To play a song and discuss the finer nuances between an Australian and Kiwi accent, as well as play our new game, “What kind of Shark is it?”

Starring Nic and Porsha, Indianapolis power couple and founder of Cats for Syria.

Also musical direction by the blind maestro JB.

And corrections and redactions by mild mannered ‘Gelman’ Jawn Anderson.

Special Musical Guest: Peter King

 

Critics Corner: Review Neil Breem's tour'de force "Fateful Findings"

 

Since Porsha and Nic have been performing these shows it hasn't been clear if its been good or bad for their relationship. Are they joking up there? Is he gonna propose to her? Are they happy together? Whats going on? Was there a sitcom in the 90's called Teen Angel about a teen that was dared eat an old sandwich, died, and then came back as a ghost to help his friend? Maybe things are gonna be ok, maybe they're gonna get rough up there. I heard they don't even sleep in the same room anymore.

 

Join Nic, Porsha, Sound Czar JB, and all round nice guy Producer Jawn, won't you?, For the next False Ragu.

 

It'll be pretty weird.

Just in time for the Holiday Season False Ragu IV will showcase classic all American consumerism as well as highly toxic conditional love between family and friends!

Jeff Bodart

Since starting stand up in 2001, Jeff Bodart has been making a name for himself performing in comedy clubs across the country.
He has appeared multiple times on the nationally syndicated radio show, The Bob & Tom Show.
You may have seen Jeff on the Comcast Cable network as well as The WB.
Jeff's style is so relatable you will feel you know him. Being the youngest in his family has prepared him for a life of comedy.
His animated and goofy demeanor combined with edgy quips covering his dating life, working out, his favorite food of cheese sticks, and the fact that he could never be on "Survivor" makes for some great laughs for anyone watching his show.

Hosted by Tyson Cox

Ryan Niemiller

Despite being born with a disability in both arms, Ryan Niemiller, the self-proclaimed "Cripple Threat of Comedy" shares his views of the world from the perspective of the handicapped. Ryan began his comedy career in Los Angeles, California, and hasn't looked back since, performing in clubs and colleges across the country. Covering topics such as dating, trying to find employment, and attempting to find acceptance in a world not designed for him, Ryan tackles the issues in a way that makes you think while laughing the entire time. With his quick wit, great timing, and a gimmick that only he can exploit, Ryan hopes to prove to the comedy world that he may be unarmed, but he is dangerous.

free show on Pint Night (cheap pints, half-off snacks)
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Nic Stefan Kobrehel esquire is a fraud. A snake oil salesman from the lowest rung of humanity. A despicable, shameless, pathological liar. A nefarious loner who infiltrates and poisons countless communities, families, and various youth organizations.

If you play cards with him, he will cheat.
If you give him a loan he will default.
If you shake his hand it will be clammy.
If he makes you a sandwich it will have poo in it.

Beware! Cuidado!

'Twas in the darkest depths of Mordor I met a girl so fair, as well as Nic Kobrehel - Led Zeppelin

He is a malevolent, spiteful creature in service of the immortal Hecate. Hellbent on the proliferation of all things nasty, wicked, and things that bum you out.

Do not venture from your humble hovels the evening of Wednesday May 24th, for this venomous villain will be spewing his slanderous, syphilitic ramblings upon any lost and forgotten souls that may be lured to Pioneer for $4 Pint Night, half off snacks and DJ sounds.

TIM NORTHERN

"I provide you with two-thirds of the joke, and you provide the other third. It’s like ‘do-it-yourself’ comedy.”

That do-it-yourself approach is paying off for the Nashville native, whose influences are a veritable Who’s Who of comic genius. “George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Steven Wright – I like all of ‘em.” Once Tim takes control of the mike, he relies on much the same type of material that those classic comedians used to land in the national spotlight – plain and simple, Tim Northern is a word man.
 
“Love words. Love ‘em!”  Tim says. His enthusiasm for words and language results in what can aptly be described as humor for the thinking person, a unique combination of intellect and fun-filled observation. And yet, it’s mainstream humor that everyone understands. Simply put, Tim Northern is punster of the highest caliber.

D JAY DANGLER

"D J Dangler travels around the country working clubs and colleges. He has appeared at Caroline's on Broadway and Gotham Comedy Club in New York City. His style is sharp, and high energy. He draws from his many and varied interests to relate to most any crowd. He blends New York cynicism with genuine Midwestern agreeability to present a different take on both the trivial and substantial aspects of life.
D J is a firm believer that people are pretty much the same everywhere, and if you can make those people laugh, you don't have to have a real job."

NATE GROPP

Nathan Gropp is a comedian. He is a fixture in the Indianapolis scene and has opened for Henry Phillips, Ms. Pat, Shane Mauss, Stewart Huff, and Michael Ian Black. Nate participated in the first annual Crossroads Comedy Festival in Indianapolis and has recently started featuring at some of the top clubs throughout the midwest, including Morty's Comedy Joint, a club he is proud to call home. Grounded in his love of absurdity as well as the guilt-ridden weirdness of growing up very Catholic, Nate's comedy is irreverent, whimsical, edgy, and always fun. He also thinks that jokes about writing in 3rd person at the end of biographies are pretty played out, so he doesn't do that anymore.
