Live At The Upfront

Live At The Upfront

Thursday night at the Upfront Theatre was the place to be. In front of a sold out crowd, the main stage players put on one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. It was a non-stop string of laughter that made an hour of entertainment seem like only 10 minutes. Ryan Stiles was there, performing with the last group of the 8pm show. For those of you that do not know, Ryan owns the Upfront. He started it up a few years back, and he’s been regularly performing with the rest of the main stage players on Thursday nights if he is in town.

I have a scheduled shoot with the theatre on Sunday, but I came to the performance to get some live shots, and I’m SO glad that I did. I stayed and captured both the 8 and 10pm shows, both providing plenty of laughs. The first show, an ensemble of the whole gang split into three groups. The second show, presented by The Project, a format hosted by Morgan Grobe and Stephen Edwards, “General Tso’s Comedy Show.” I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking, and stay tuned for more photos from B-ham!
