BOB KHOSRAVI (Austin)
Bob Khosravi was born a baby, which his mother appreciated. After years of experimentation he perfected blending his foreign last name with a really American first name. An absurd storyteller hailing from Austin, Bob has been a featured performer in the Art Outside festival, alongside Moshe Kasher and Shane Mauss, as well as the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival. Having hosted and featured at Cap City Comedy Club and headlined the infamous Velveeta Room, Bob has solidified his place in the local comedy community as well as on the road. Khosravi’s comedy has been described as bright and engaging with a subtle sense of darkness. He writes and produces a sketch show called menOcomedy with co-creator Chris Dodgen.

UNSUSPECTINGLY SPONSORED BY (Austin)
Unsuspectingly Sponsored By is a comedy show about advertising, featuring comedians who happen to work on said advertisements at their “professional jobs.” In the show we put the client on stage, and throughout we constantly “pitch” new concepts and campaigns. These take the form of live sketch, improvisation, stand-up monologues, and most importantly-fully produced video commercials / sketches. Like SNL style commercials, but for one very real company, who is “unsuspectingly” sponsoring the night. It’s non-consensual advertising. Each show features a giveaway of the product sponsoring.
Cast: Erik Horn, John Gross, Brad Parrett, Andy Smith, Robert Segovia
