The Super Serious Show

The Super Serious Show LA Shows are the 3rd Wednesday of the month. https://nightout.com/events/superseriousshow/ CleftClips presents Los Angeles’ best all-in-one monthly comedy event, The Super Serious Show.

Each show brings in the best performers working today, along with great young talent. Starting in July 2010, Super Serious set out to combine the best of the Los Angeles comedy scene, each show presenting a new mix of stand-up, sketch and music comedy, along with videos. Super Serious is more than a comedy show, with a full-fledge pre-party including music, drinks, sweets and (sometimes) food truck. Super Serious is also sponsored by our friends at Caviar.

Operating as usual

Now for some Super Serious Feelings :⠀

When we started the show 10 years ago, we set out to build a stand up show that represented everything we loved: great music, cheap eats, free beer/wine and a well curated lineup. We didn't start the show with big plans, we just wanted to be a part of the comedy community.⠀

The book, the portraits, and the interview selections are a reflection of our shared history and community and we feel so lucky to be a part of it. We really hope this book makes comedians, aspiring comedians, and comedy fans as happy as the last 10 years have made us.

Ginger + Sage + Whiskey The Yellowjacket I developed this drink with my good friends Joel & Mandee Johnson Photography in mind. I called up (or ‘Zoomed’?) Joel & Mandee recently to talk about Sazerac cocktails, as I know Mandee has the best recipe (shared with her from her local west LA haunt the Alibi Room via bartender Brian, now of his own bar Palo Santo in Oklahoma City). In a fun Facebook Live cocktail making session, I wanted a fresh ingredient cocktail to make in addition to the Sazerac that suited their tastes, so I went back through my cocktail notes from some of our adventures together, as they have been frequent travel buddies in my life and always in step with my enthusiasm for a good cocktail. Touching upon the Sazerac’s roots in New Orleans, I revisited a trip we went on together in that city, and a tasty cocktail that stood out which we had at one of Mandee’s favorite restaurants there, Cochon Restaurant. Cochon’s Yellowjacket (different than another known Yellowjacket from a a bar in NYC W/ tequila & chartreuse) was made with Rye whiskey (just like the Sazerac), ginger liqueur, a homemade sage sugar syrup & lemon juice. So in true Silver Shaker fashion I wanted to strip this concept down to it’s freshest base ingredients & utilize the spiciness of fresh ginger & the rich flavors of real sage. Hopefully both honoring the original and developing something new. Here is that gorgeous cocktail: Rye Whiskey: 2 shots (50ml/2oz)* Ginger: 1 slice (1/4” roughly) Sage: 4 leaves Lemon: 1/2 a Lemon, squeezed Sugar: 1 cube (or 25ml/1oz of sugar syrup) Muddle all ingredients together. Shake with ice. Strain over new ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a sprig of sage *I used Ezra Brooks Bourbon Rye that comes from the state of Indiana, just like where Mandee hails from 😀. Purchased here in North London from Theatre of Wine. Our cocktail making session is still up on The Silver Shaker’s Facebook video page, so do have a watch if you fancy. And find out more about Joel & Mandee and the cool work they do in LA’s indy comedy scene via Mandee’s amazing NEW BOOK “Super Serious” from Andrews McMeel that chronicles the show they’ve produced, The Super Serious Show 🙂 #yellowjacket #freshgingerroot #freshsage #freshsageleaves #ryewhiskeycocktails #ryewhiskeylover #nolacocktails #nola #indiana #sazeracs #sazeraccocktail #muddleitup #muddled #freshcocktail #cocktailsofinstagram #cocktailhour #cocktailrecipes #cocktailporn #cocktailsathome #cocktailgram #cocktailoftheday #cocktailculture #craftcocktails
An oral history of Los Angeles independent stand-up comedy with a collection of comedian portraits from a decade of the beloved independent comedy show, The Super Serious Show. Super Serious Book by Mandee Johnson Photography available for pre-order | https://bit.ly/SuperSeriousBook
Had such a great time making cocktails with my friends LA comedy producers, Mandee Johnson Photography & Joel Mandelkorn Sunday on Facebook Live I learned 1 cocktail & taught 1 cocktail! We talked about their work w/ The Super Serious Show & Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen, as well as Mandee's NEW BOOK avail worldwide August 18th from Andrews McMeel: https://publishing.andrewsmcmeel.com/book/super-serious/?fbclid=IwAR2tsBCclGiLRpeFwrWDzwSA8YFfn_N4quSvqTuX1o38UdP6DGBucU4g8VQ Next we talk Sazeracs! And how Mandee 1st fell in love with this New Orleans drink at Alibi Room thanks to Brian of Palo Santo. Special shout out to the exceptional Sazeracs at NOLA's Jewel of the South. We also talk bitters, as the Sazerac is tied in its origins to Peychaud’s Aperitivo, and chatting about the differences to House of Angostura. I made my sazeracs w/ Indiana-made Ezra Brooks Bourbon Rye from my glorious local Theatre of Wine. And finally I lead them on making an original cocktail inspired by our memorable times at Cochon Restaurant in New Orleans with Alex Lane & Diane Sousa & our crew. For this one, we used the Ezra Brooks again with fresh ginger, sage & lemon. Let me know if you want to be a part of future live sunday events & I'll develop a cocktail just for YOU too! And thanks again to Jake @ Hold The Phone for getting me up online this week! Make the Sazerac with us, you'll just need: Rye Whiskey (any whiskey will do but rye is the best) Absinthe Cognac/Brandy (optional) Peychaud’s Bitters Lemon Sugar Cube *not simple syrup! *put the glasses in the freezer prior to get them cold Tools: muddler, peeler, glass for mixing, stirring spoon, ice, strainer (we’ll use a julep strainer but any strainer is fine) For the Original Cocktail, you'll need: Whiskey (rye or bourbon) Fresh Sage Fresh Ginger Lemon Sugar Tools: muddler, shaker, measure, strainer, knife, ice, Rocks glass Thanks for watching & don't forget to take pics of your glorious cocktails for me! :)

TONIGHT, I start my semi-residency The Virgil thanks to the good people at Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen and The Super Serious Show 1030pm Pay what you want in the bucket for hot tub audience or 5 bucks on the door
WHO IN THE F**K SITS ON A ROCK, If i waited 3-4 days avoiding s*xual temptations just to prove to myself that i could really do the impossible, and then saw THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMEN I EVER LAID EYES ON SITTING BUTT NAKED ON SOME ROCK, I WOULD PROBABLY TAKE A SYRINGE AND SLAM IT WITH SOME REALLY GREAT METHAMPHETAMINE AND GO RIGHT UP TO HERE AND LIKE ASK HER FOR SOMETHING! WHAT A F**KIN JOKE!
Er I ment no one should ever get hurt or in trouble for naything they truly truly want to do...So I pray that god make all things especially those things that people desire and dream off to be made safe and fun and sanctified and ok so that ....you know....thing's like that....
I wish someone would make a national holiday where a bunch of pornstar's show up in your town or something a lot like that and begin having surprise butt naked s*x everywhere, I mean like in the streets, in the houses, in the library, in the fast food resteraunts, in the big building's on the bus, at the mall, at the electronics store, in movie theatres, in dshs offices, in swimming pools, hot tubs, even at the gyms, in mansions, in cars, planes, buses, you know like everywhere, just a bunch of the most beutiful people ever just randomly show up and get butt ass naked and begin having s*x...like a bunch of rich people and drug dealers also show up with trucks and bag's full of all the drug's you can ever think of and begin passing them out to people telling everyone to get high and everything's ok, Haven fun for once and don't worry! And like...Everyone is expected to participate but you don't have to, no pressure or nothing...like even the police officer's driving around and the security officers everywhere and like everyone just start's getting it everywhere, fire fighters too, gang member's and just about any one out there...And then like, everyone helps clean up the mess of course, and like medical personal will drive around like a miracle fleet and help anyone who needs help and regulate anything that gets out of hand in a peaceful manner ensuring everyone has a good time. The whole thing would be carefully planned and prepared ahead of time, and anyone who wishes not to participate can just keep there clothes on and stay out of the activities if they want. in fact there should be like local areas they can go to and if they stay there for a determined amount of time they can get like...some super prize like a briefcase with a million dollars and like a bible and some socks and maybe a beenie....er somethin....Maybe something like a box full of p***s extension pills and some fertility drugs, and some healthy vitamins and stuff that will help them grow their p***s size and maintain erections and make super stronger ever lasting or***ms and like....A bunch of really awesome stuff for the people who decided not to participate.......They should have like special flyer's to pass out that explain the whole thing and then people can come to scheduled places where the fun is set to take place....That way if they have fun they can show up at another spot whenever they get planned on the pamphlets......Like a concert, except it'd just be for having really great s*xual experiences.... How's THAT for a Super serious show! Haha!
