Timmy Interviews Comedians Andrew Ouellette and Jake Daniels about Netflix Documentary
Timmy got to interview the comedians of the "Knock 'Em Dead Comedy Tour," which stopped in Yakima this weekend (April 10-11). They tell jokes and raise money for Childhood Cancer Research. The tour is being filmed for a Netflix documentary and they stopped by KATS to chit-chat with Timmy! Check out the interview below.
Andrew Ouellette & Jake Daniels are bringing their "Knock' Em Dead Comedy Tour" to Yakima's Comedy Club, The Laugh Lounge, but that's not all, it's part of a 40 state tour that is being filmed for a documentary for Netflix! Andrew is no stranger to Yakima as he brought his no-holds-barred, in-your-face brand of comedy -- which has earned him an official Guinness world record -- to the stage many times. If you haven't seen him before, you do not want to miss it.
A little more on Andrew Ouellette: He has done commercials, written for the wildly popular “Laughspin” and “Savage Henry Magazine." Along with his role in the hit documentary “Owned and Operated,” he hosted “The NothingCast,” in which he interviewed the likes of Rebecca Corry ("Kings Of Queens"), Andy Andrist (HBO’s "Down And Dirty"), MTV’s "Dexpedition" and the Octomom.
When it comes to his stand-up, Ouellette is at his best when it comes to the high-energy irreverence of his notorious live performances. Andrew crawls into the spotlight, reaches down his throat with shaking, ink-stained hands and pulls out his soul for your simple amusement. With his self-deprecating introspection, he brings you as close as you can get to the brink of madness.
Jake Daniels, who will be featured this weekend, has produced several award-winning films and is currently a traveling (not homeless) stand-up comedian. The “Heart Break Kid” brings his solemn history of relationship heartaches and heartbreaks to life in his stage act. The romantic comic flirts with topics such as: “love at first sight,” “role playing” and “divorce.”
Along with being a really bad magician, his act will leave you laughing and seeking someone to hug. Jake has headlined the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and he's toured the United States and performed in the Dominican Republic and Canada. He has also performed at several fundraising events for U.S. veterans.
Catch the show, and maybe you'll hear your laugh in a documentary!
Saturday night's (April 11) act is at the Laugh Lounge, 1507 N. First St. Show starts at 8, doors open at 7. For more information or to buy tickets check out YakimaLaughLounge.com. Ages 21 and older.
