Hold on to your butt, cuz we are about to deal with some FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS! What I mean to say is throw back a couple brewskies at the bar, and laugh your face off, with a group of quirky comedians, who are anything but their name, in fact they are two-years-in-a-row, runner-ups in our LA Improv Festival Cage Match, and they are playing here, on iOWest’s very own Main Stage, at 8pm! And, as a special treat, an interview with one of the near original players, Mikey Likey!
iOWest: What events triggered the creation of First World Problems?
Mikey Likey: We started to play as many cage matches as possible.
iOW: How does it feel now that you get your very own full 30-minute slot?
ML: Its gonna be fun to get used to, our style has always been 20 minute sets, but it will be good, we have a large team, so the extra minutes help us all get out there.
iOW: What is one thing that sets your team apart?
ML: We are really physical with each other, you’ll feel bad for the smaller people on our team!
Well, thank you Mikey Likey, and who could say no to a show that makes you feel bad for small people? You can bet your three-hole buttons that I’ll be there! And you are welcome, and encouraged to hang out with the stars of First World Problems before the show for a few fun rounds of Happy Hour&Bar Bingo.
Then stick around for a solid night of shows, Tatanka & Spirit Cat at 8:30, The Cartel Bandit at 9:30, King Ten at 10:30, and finish your night with the sharp new team, Less Hot Dog at 11:30.
How could this night get any better? I’d love to tell you. Buy a ticket for one show, and it will get you into every show for the rest of the night, we’re talking six great teams for the price of one. See you tonight!
