It was the dawn of time — the early 1980’s. DeLoreans and mullets roamed the Earth. And Art Sturtevant was doing stand up comedy. It was a golden age — a time of laughter and Ginsu Knife jokes and Lee Trevino imitations, but it ended suddenly in 1985.
What happened? Some say he was frozen in a liquid nitrogen accident. Others say he took a series of field management jobs with national corporations.
Just as suddenly as he’d disappeared, Art resurfaced in the open mic venues of January 2010. He’s been back at it ever since!
When I first started to look into doing stand up comedy three years ago, Sturtevant is the comic I aspired to be. Three years later that hasn’t changed and neither has my fear of getting on stage, someday….
Here is a clip of Sturtevant performing:
Joining Sturtevant on stage will be comedians Taylor Rogers, Ben Atkins, Fay Canale, Petey Smith McDowell, Josh Rosenstein, Ryan Folks, Josh Mcdaniel, Jessica Tomasin, and your host for the evening comedian Kelly Row.
