DNA Productions // Show: DNA's Stand-Up Mash-Up
DNA's Stand-Up Mash-Up (Best of Santa Cruz and Bay Area Stand-Up Comedy) is proud to be presenting five totally different 90 minute shows at The Center Stage Theatrewith each show featuring up to ten different comics.
The kick-off on Friday the 13th of July features John Hoogasian whose eccentric world of minutia makes him a lysergic acid drenched version of Jack Benny. Rodger Lizaola breaks away from the pack of San Jose comics with his fiery freestyle brand of outrageous humor. Local Amy Raugust is now a national sensation living in LA, working the stages of NYC and will be featured among many more.
Sunday the 15th of July is an afternoon show, which usually spells death for stand-up comedybut within the confines of a black box theatre it's going to be an Old School vs. New School comedy jam. The eponymous elders are played by Gail Jones and local favorite Richard Stockton. The young ones are a mix of UCSC's best and Blue Lagoon All Stars.
Tuesday the 17th of July features one of the Bay Area's funniest females the wild-haired Marcella Arguello who has been referred to as a "hysterical young glamazon." Also on the bill, amongst many others is local Trevor Hill who's unique brand of atheist humor has gotten him on the historic Steve Allen Stage in LA.
Saturday the 21st of July has three of the most amazing ladies working the comedy circuit, Lydia Popvich is the author of the extremely funny and successful blog Hater Tuesday, Caitlin Gill is Bay Area firestorm and UCSC graduate Mary Van Note is the Fringiest and best-dressed of all comics.
Closing out The Fringe Festival on Sunday the 22nd of July features Bay Area Kurt Weitzmann who played the infamous Holy City Zoo and this is just a sample of all the amazing comics set to perform.
