I never pass up an opportunity to show just how bad at pool I am. Even visually. People report that seeing me play just doesn’t look right. Like a horse wearing glasses. So when Taylor Dowdy asked me to match sticks against my friend and yours Aaron Brooks for a pilot/proof of concept comedy & pool series, you know I was on board. Plus, I got to hear my unborn (at the time) child get insulted. Wow. What a treat for everyone.
Knuck Deep rides off into the sunset
Reposted from Six Shooter’s Facebook page:
Big news! The July 10th Six Shooter will be the last one hosted by Knuck Deep. It seems their touring schedule is too demanding for them to continue hosting a monthly comedy show. We assure you this has nothing to do with the ongoing legal case, the State of Texas vs. Knuck Deep.
Starting in August, Six Shooter will undergo a slight format change and welcome new host Mac Blake The show will still be free, still be at Barrel O’Fun and will still feature six of Austin’s funniest comedians. So come on out July 10th and say good-bye to Knuck Deep and then stop by August 8th to see Six Shooter 2.0.
In completely unrelated news, Aaron Brooks is moving. It’s so unrelated I’m not even sure why I mentioned it.
The final Six Shooter before Aaron moves is July 10th at Barrel O’Fun. Complete line-up and more details here.
Aaron Brooks Album Recording
One of my favorite people on the planet, Aaron Brooks, is recording his debut comedy album at Cap City Comedy Club. You got two chances to catch him, Tuesday and Sunday. I’ll be hosting the second show, so if you want to see my sweaty face, that’s the one. Pick-up tix at capcitycomedy.com.

New show: Six Shooter!
Maybe you’ve heard the phrase “follow the fun” before. It comes up in improv a lot. Find the most fun part of a scene, attack that and don’t worry about the other stuff.
Right now, some of the most fun I’m having on stage is when Aaron Brooks and I play these characters – Knuck Deep, the freestyle country music legends. Starting next Wednesday, Barrel O’ Fun, the brand new bar at the brand new Alamo Drafthouse Mueller is letting Knuck Deep host a brand new monthly stand-up showcase: Six Shooter! Every show, we’re putting up six of our favorite comedians in town. These line-ups will be all killer – we’d never book a show we wouldn’t want to watch. Plus, we’ll be hosting it in-character as Knuck Deep. The show will be the 2nd Wednesday of every month (until the bar gets sick of us)/
So next Wednesday, come see Matt Bearden headline the very first Six Shooter. It’s worth it just to check out how awesome the Barrel O’Fun is.
Oh and it’s free. More money for beer or sodee pop.

We have a lot of very fun shows lined-up and with some very cool people (including Ryan Singer!). If you have friend in these cities, invite’em to a show!
