Slice of Life Comedy presents comedians Gilbert Lawand & Noah Gardenswartz tomorrow night at the Orange Peel.
Tickets are $8 in advance which can be purchased here and the show starts at 8:00 p.m.
Noah Gardenswartz is a comedian that you should know about. Always relaxed on stage, he has a wide range of material and a unique perspective on life.
His well-crafted mix of jokes, observations and personal stories are all full of the cleverly dry wit that have made him an Atlanta favorite and a national up-and-comer.
His credits include TBS’ “Today’s Riff,” Comcast’s “Trial By Laughter,” the 2011 and 2012 Laughing Skull Festival, the 2012 Charleston Comedy Festival, and the 2012 Bay Area Black Comedy Competition, where he was a semi-finalist. Noah also recently made his television debut on Bounce TV’s “Uptown Comic,” and was named as a semi-finalist in NBC’s “Stand Up For Diversity” for 2012.
Here is a clip of Gardenswartz performing:
Gilbert is an Atlanta based stand up comic and producer of a weekly show called Comedy Gold. He started doing stand up in 2006. Since then, he has performed in clubs all over the country including the Punchline, Funny Farm, Laughing Skull (Atlanta), the Hollywood Improv and Comedy Store (Los Angeles), San Jose Improv, Denver Improv, Comedy Works (Denver), as well many more.
Gilbert, or “Me” as I sometimes call myself, comes from an interesting background. He was born in Baghdad to Catholic parents. When he was six years old, his family moved to a town of 500 people in Georgia to live on a farm. Growing up on a farm taught him many important life lessons, like living on a farm sucks.
Here is a clip of Lawand performing:
Joining Gardenswartz and Lawand on stage will be comedians Minori Hinds, Tom Peters, Jenny Chalakian, and host comedian Kelly Row.
The show will also hold a benefit for Asheville fm, a nonprofit community radio station. Both Slice girls are co-hosts of the Ashevillefm radio show Michele & Kelly’s Slumber Party which airs every Wed from 4-6pm. There will be a $1 raffle held with donated prizes from local vendors.
The Local Joint, a popular and beloved diner in Fairview will be providing edible goodies for the night, probably something dipped in chocolate and wrapped in bacon.
