After participating in a comedy scene for long enough, viewers who see comics perform over and over will learn not only their jokes, but their tics and idiosyncrasies as well. Sexpot Comedy's Designated Drunkard: A Comedy Drinking Game has turned these observations into a rib-tickling and liver-pickling standup showcase. Co-produced by two open mic hosts —Caitie Hannan and Byron Graham — who've both watched an inadvisable amount of local comedy, the format is fairly simple: Hannan and Graham write down their notes about each comic on a large easel pad and prompt the audience to drink each time the comic on stage says or does something on their list. Throughout the show, one of the hosts remains on stage in the role of Designated Drunkard to guide the audience and generally make a drunken spectacle of themselves. Inspired by "Wait, What?" a similarly boozy brouhaha run by New Orleans comics Geoffrey Gauchet and Isaac Kozell, few shows achieve the same level of bacchanalian abandon. September, we're back with another killer lineup featuring Patrick Scott, Georgia Rae, Reid Clark, Zac Maas, and Nathan Lund!
