This Saturday Speakeasy HQ will hand the microphone over to a man who has come to be known for inventing a whole new way of presenting comedy!! Known as Ross Purdy, his absurdly brilliant manner of presenting the unthinkable ideas in ways that we can all relate to left our audience at Speakeasy Nuevo in hysterics last month! Including such ideas as ordering 24 Karat Gold (ehem) body parts from the home shopping network, to learning how to sweat ice cream – Ross is not only hilarious, but is Purdy Absurd in doing so.
Se we took the funny man aside as he prepares his props and material for this week’s show and asked him a bunch of questions to see what makes him tick!!
Who are you and what led you to performing professionally?
I’m Ross Purdy; I’m a stand up comedian and bad men want me to pay them $1,000,00 or they said they’d cut my thumbs off and send them off to my loved ones in eskies. I perform in hopes of making that amount of money to prevent that. I am failing.
What has been the highest point of your performance career?
Performing at Carnegie Hall. In my dreams.
if there was a biographical movie of your life made who would play you and who would play your best friend?
Academy Award winner Dame Judi Dench and the dog from “Air Bud”. Is the dog from “Air Bud” still alive? No? The corpse of the dog from “Air Bud” then.
If you could perform a 3-5 minute vaudeville act with one famous person from any part of history, who would it be and what would you perform?
I would perform an excerpt of “Hamlet” with Kanye West. I know he’s got it in him to pull It off.
What will the audience see when you perform at Speakeasy HQ?
Something they have never seen before. Or something they’ve seen millions of times before, whichever one.
Don’t miss your chance to see Mr Ross Purdy at Speakeasy HQ performing the absurdest comedy you’ll ever laugh at – THIS SATURDAY NIGHT!!! Tickets available at: http://www.trybooking.com/Booking/BookingEventSummary.aspx?eid=87968
