The BEARDS OF COMEDY tour is quickly becoming one of the hottest shows in the U.S, showcasing four of the funniest, freshest and bearded faces in comedy.
Andy Sandford (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, 2012 Bridgetown Comedy Festival), Joe Zimmerman (Rooftop Comedy's Golden Shingle Award nominee), TJ Young (Adult Swim's Squidbillies) and Dave Stone (2012 CMT Next Big Comic Semifinalist) deliver an original brand of humor that's deeply rooted in stand-up and lightly blended with avant-garde elements of music, sketch and improv. Offering a smart, quirky and refreshing twist on a traditional comedy show, the Beards frequently tour the country and currently host the popular Beards & Friends show at New York City's The Creek and the Cave. Offstage, short films including "The Fan," "Help," and "Basketball" have amassed thousands of hits, with "Breakfast Banditos" even receiving feature placement on the front page of FunnyOrDie.com.
In July 2009, the Beards recorded Comedy for People for Rooftop Comedy Records; it continues to receive frequent airplay on SiriusXM Radio. Most recently they made their debut on The Bob & Tom Show and released second album Cardio Mix November 22 on Comedy Central Records.
