Rizo with special guest opener Drennon Davis
October 18 7:00 pm PDT
Doors Open: 6:30 pm$25.00
The New York Times once referred to Rizo as “SENSATIONAL… A fierce but kindhearted fusion of comedy, burlesque, performance art and rock ‘n’ roll.” Taking a cue from Piaf, Rizo (né Amelia Zirin-Brown) fully embraces the role of chanteuse. In recordings, she is a mysterious figure, a siren ushering you through tableaus of heartbreak, lust, and the murkiness in between. Live, she is an eyeful.
An international cult favorite, her stage shows bring her powerhouse vocals together with seductive storytelling and wild hilarious audience experiments. Rizo is a provocateur with an electric wit, and has been called a “diva par excellence” by The Guardian. In the studio she has collaborated with Moby, Reggie Watts, and Yo-Yo Ma; whose album Songs of Joy & Peace, which features Rizo, won a Grammy Award.
Rizo has also received a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, a Time Out London theater award, and a London Cabaret Award.
From his elaborate characters and sketches, to his provocative songs, puppets and animation, Drennon has made a name for himself as one of the most innovative minds in today’s comedy scene. His live performances, whether solo or collaboration, combine live music and beat-boxing with one-man sketches into a show that the Los Angeles Comedy Bureau writes “not only lives up to its name, but exceeds expectation in what you could possibly think it is.”
Drennon recently performed twice on TBS’s Conan, and has previously appeared on Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party and The Meltdown, NBC’s Last Call, Viceland’s Flophouse, Seeso’s Guest List and was a semifinalist on Last Comic Standing. He can be seen on the new NBC comedy, “Bring The Funny” coming out summer 2019. His animated show The Long Legs can be seen on MTV’s rebirth of Liquid Television. He’s also the winner of the International Academy of Web Television award for best original music in 2017 for his work on Epic Studios with Lloyd Alquist of Epic Rap Battles of History.
He was featured in LA Weekly’s Top 10 Comedy Acts to Watch in 2014 and 2015 Best Comedy Duo (with Karen Kilgariff), as well as Splitsider’s Top 10 Up & Coming Acts in LA in 2015. Drennon is a recurring presence at music and comedy festivals all over the world including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, SXSW, Riot LA Alternative Comedy Festival, Bonnaroo, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Outside Lands, the Oddball Comedy Festival and many more.
