Two-Headed Beast

a storytelling show.

THE END.

This is it! The end! The last show!

We know. It’s sad. But don’t worry. Nothing bad happened. It’s been an incredible three and a half years, and it’s just time for us to move on. We’re not getting kicked out, there’s no bad blood, we still love the venue and the staff and each other, but we’ve decided it’s time to move up and onward to new projects.

SO. Please come help us say goodbye to a show that we’ve loved dearly for going on four years now.

The lineup is stacked with a small army of our favorites:

Matt Braunger
Eliza Skinner
Paul Palmeri
Chris Garcia
Renee Gauthier

And of course, the crowd will be packed with great people, and a tailless kitten may pop its head in from time to time. Delicious coffee and food will be served from the Stories kitchen… It’ll be a great time. We hope to see you there.

Thank you, by the way. Thank you for making this show great. Thank you for making it consistently wonderful, and something that’s always made us feel at home, and a part of this city we love. When we started it, we had no idea how hard the neighborhood would rally behind this little storytelling night, and every month we’ve continued to be delighted by Echo Park and how warm, kind and interested its people are. We cannot thank you enough, and we will definitely be back with more shows and more comedy and more stories soon enough. But for now, let’s give Two-Headed Beast a proper send-off.

The lineup is insane. Look at this.

January 4th. The Return of Jay Larson!

First Two-Headed Beast of 2014! And what better way to kick it off than to bring back one of our favorite storytellers — Jay Larson. You might’ve seen him on Conan, or know his ever-hilarious podcast The Crabfeast, or just from peddling his stories and jokes across the country. He’s amazing. And he brings with him four more of the best storytellers in the country. Do join us. :)

November 2nd. Kumail Nanjiani!

Dear Kumail, oh how we’ve missed you. If you’ve never seen the man, do yourself a favor. His debut album was just released on Comedy Central Records, and probably saw him on Franklin & Bash or Veep or Conan or seen his writing on countless other shows. He’s one of our favorites. And he brings with him a small army of the best storytellers in Los Angeles. Do join us.

September 7. with Jesse Michaels of Operation Ivy!

THIS IS A DREAM COME TRUE FOR JAKE AND DAVE. (Mostly Dave.) Jesse Michaels is an inspiration, true talent. As a musician, as a performer, and as an author, he is a force to be reckoned with. We hope you come out to the show, because not only will Jesse be there, and a small regiment of LA’s best storytellers, but there will be good food, as always, and good coffee, and good people, and cats. Please join us.

Both of our headliners this month have been on This American Life, and all over Comedy Central, and all over OUR HEARTS. We love them dearly, and we know you will, too. The rest of the lineup is amazing, too, as is the coffee at Stories, and the kittens, and the people… Look, you gotta come. :)
