Fun Grip Comedy
FUN GRIP is a comedy duo who perform with the energy and presence of an improvisational army-- an army filled with acrobats, philosophers, lion tamers, dancing robots, lunatics and maybe even a rock band. Their show starts with a single audience suggestion, and from that tiny seed they grow a mighty improvisational oak branching out with extraordinary characters, extraordinary situations, and usually at least one impersonation of a live animal (or mythological creature of yore).
As hard as it may be to believe, FUN GRIP is just two guys: Jeff Swearingen and Brad McEntire. They've been performing together in one group or another for years and years. They both have impeccable improv comedy pedigrees, along with healthy doses of experimental and traditional theatre training.
FUN GRIP started existence in January 2006 at Dallas' West End Comedy Theatre, at that time under the name FUN DIP. In April of 2008, we changed the name to FUN GRIP to avoid future legal hassles with a certain candy brand. They use Dallas as a home base and often play festivals and gigs out of town. The fellas of FUN GRIP has performed in New York, Hong Kong, New Orleans, Austin and several other places in their short history.
Admission$5-$10 depending on the venue.
