If you're tired of the fact that there's nothing on television, try going out tonight and getting your nothing from the Fried Nothing TV Comedy Night. "You know how you get some fried chicken from KFC and there's those little fried bits at the bottom that are basically nothing?" asks Jordan Wieleba, a founding member of the group. "That's where the name came from. Our catchphrase is 'Taste the comedy.'"
The night features standup performances by all four members of Fried Nothing TV, plus several other breaking local comics. In between the standup, several of Fried Nothing's sketch-comedy short films will be shown, including an insightful look into the behind-the-scenes mishaps of Joy of Painting star Bob Ross, a quest for Whoopi Goldberg's missing eyebrows and the premiere of a brand-new sketch. After the show, you can hang out with the comedians and creative minds behind the group and find out about the sketch-comedy scene while you enjoy some laid-back reggae courtesy of Ern-One.
Get a taste online at www.friednothing.com, then head down to Benders Tavern, 314 East 13th Avenue, tonight at 9 p.m. Admission is $7; call 303-861-7070.
