I was excited to go see Paul Varghese headline at Hyena’s Comedy Nightclub last Saturday January 7, 2012. When my friends and I arrived, the line was out the door and around the corner. The anticipation in the sold out crowd was contagious. I have been a fan of Paul Varghese for quite some time, and I promised my friends they would experience an excellent night of stand-up comedy.
That was a very exciting week for Paul Varghese, his birthday was on the 4th and he was also recording his first CD that weekend. The show was even better than what I promised my friends it would be. All of the comics did an awesome job. There was only room for laughter with the standing room only crowd.
Hyena’s Comedy Nightclub at Mockingbird Station was more than accommodating and the staff was very attentive to the extremely large number of people they had to serve. If you ever have a chance to see Paul Varghese, Chelsea Hood or Aaron Aryanpur do not hesitate because you will not be disappointed. They can be seen touring nationwide.
If any of these comics are in your town be sure to make it to one the shows.Do something fun and at the same time support your local comics. The only thing you could possibly lose, is a bad mood!
About the comics:
Paul Varghese’s act includes a number of observations about being Indian, providing outsider-looking-in and insider-looking-out commentary, while also exploring an array of topics and issues outside that realm.
He was named by the Dallas Observer in 2007 as the “Best Stand-up Comic in Dallas” and recently won the 2009 “Funniest Comic in Dallas” competition. Varghese has performed at the HBO Comedy Festival, the Montreal and Toronto’s Just For Laughs Festivals and the TBS Comedy Festival. His TV credits include Telemundo 2’s “Loco Comedy Jam”, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham” and he can be seen this October 17th on Showtime’s “Russell Peters Presents”. He has toured with Dave Attell and has recently performed on Gabriel Iglesias new Comedy Central TV show “Stand-Up Revolution”.
After you see Paul Varghese live reward him with a Jäger bomb. It’s the right thing to do for a job well done!
Comedy Central has called Aaron Aryanpur “Likable, well-written and fresh”. A favorite comedian in Texas and appearing in comedy clubs, theaters and universities across the country, Aaron was invited to perform at 2009’s Great American Comedy Festival. Voted as one of Maxim Magazine/Bud Light’s “Real Men of Comedy”, Aaron could also be seen performing with The “Axis of Evil Comedy Tour”.
Drawing on his experiences as a young husband, father, corporate employee and having lived a lifetime of being tragically uncool, Aaron delivers laughs show after show with his unique perspective and likable delivery.
Aaron was featured in the “Best of the Fest Showcase” at the 2005 Dallas Comedy Festival and was a national finalist in 2008’s family-friendly Purina Pet Comedy Challenge. He was a contributing comic for Life & Style Weekly Magazine. He recently made it to the Funniest Comic in Texas Finals (FCIT ) at the Addison Improv.
Once you see Aaron Aryanpur live you will be hungry for more.
Chelsea Hood is a Chicago native who began her comedy career in Dallas, TX. In her first year of comedy she quickly climbed the ranks and advanced to the Semi-Finals in The Funniest Comic in Texas Competition and has not touched the brakes since. She was recently featured in the Dallas Morning News as a comic aiming to close the gender gap in this male dominated industry, and was quoted as “winning big laughs, and not just from the women.” Just ask Dale.
If you want to know who Dale is, you will have to go see Chelsea Hood perform!
