Johnny Millwater has devoted his life to making people laugh. His extraordinary use of language, rapid-fire delivery, and old-school showmanship make his shows fun, hilarious, and unforgettable!
Armed with a projector and a truly odd point of view, AJ Schraeder will take you through a stream of conscious presentation of how he sees reality. Travel with him as you traverse a landscape of social satire, and in the end you’ll feel good just knowing you’re not as weird and nerdy as he is.
Robot Johnson started performing in the back of a lowly bar, and after several years of blood, sweat and cursing, they now perform in the front of a slightly nicer bar. They’ve done anywhere from 6 to 20 one hour original content shows each year since the group’s inception in 2007.
Now Are the Foxes is an ever-evolving, innovative improvisation and sketch comedy company based along the I-85 corridor, dedicated to growing their performance skills and entertaining others. Self-professed dysfunctional-but-lovable clowns with a wicked sense of humor and a satirical perspective on everything, Now Are the Foxes are the group of friends that make you laugh until your sides ache!
