Improvised Stand-Up Show ‘Set List’ Coming to Velvet Jones

Set List,” Troy Conrad and Paul Provenza’s innovative improvised stand-up show, is coming to Velvet Jones, 423 State St. in Santa Barbara, from 8 to 9:30 p.m. Friday.

It will feature Charles Fleischer (Who Framed Roger Rabbit), Moshe Kasher (Chelsea Lately), Matt Kirshen (Last Comic Standing), Natasha Leggero (Chelsea Lately), Rick Overton (The Office), Santa Barbara’s own Kimmie Dee and a special guest.

The show will be hosted by Provenza, director of The Aristocrats.

“Though it might sound impossible and, no doubt, intimidating, ‘Set List’ comes out incredibly funny, like a sharp Whose Line Is It Anyway? for stand-up comedy.” — Punchline Magazine

Comedy pros are handed an original, never-before-seen set list of topics as they walk on stage to create an instant, spontaneous and original stand-up set before a live audience.

Each new set list is projected on screen so the audience can follow along, get inside the minds of comedians, and watch how they craft their own particular style of comedy right from the moment of creation.

Set List is also a 14-episode TV series airing on ABC2 in Australia, and will air in April in the United Kingdom on Sky Atlantic.

Admission to Friday’s show is $15. Click here to order tickets online.

— Troy Conrad is a co-producer of “Set List.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
