It’s Always Funny in SLC

It's Always Funny in SLC The Utah comedy scene is alive and well.  There are numerous opportunities to see comedy several times a week along the Wasatch Front and and a wide range of comics to watch.  With so much going on, “It’s Always Funny in Salt Lake City”. You can attend one of several open mics, various comedy showcase shows at bars and restaurants and local, touring and celebrity headliners at Wiseguys.  This doesn’t even include the numerous Improv troupes that call SLC home as well. Each week I will interview a local comedian (or Utah grown) who is taking the scene by storm and making the Salt Lake a better place to do comedy. Ever so often I will interview someone not from the scene to get a fresh and outside perspective. I am also looking to add additional features to the blog like comedy show spotlights, polls, mini interviews with touring comics, videos, audio and more! ENJOY!

We are looking to add contributors (writers) and sponsors to the blog.  Please email me at jomazzcomedy@gmail.com if you are interested!

Upcoming guests include  Kirby Heyborne, Jay Whittaker, Christian Pieper, Stephen Jones, Levi Rounds, Nicholas Smith, Abi Harrison, Steve Uribe, Jacob Leigh, Christopher James, Jason Harvey and Mindy Kaye.

Natashia is performing at every comedy show possible this month.  So if you go to a comedy show this month, she will be there and you will be able to hear her mouth word joke thingys. Just so...

Always Funny: Abi Harrison

It’s Always Funny interviewed one of the biggest up and comers of Utah comedy scene. She is fresh off her victory at the Salt Lake Comedy Festival’s One Mic Stand Competition. I know… a big deal! We talk about names, making fun of a word mistake I made and the Utah comedy. She will be on the Inaugural It’s Always Funny in Salt Lake City Comedy Showcase on May 25th. That is how much we think of her. She is special… but not like “special” special. Describe yourself in 10 words or less? Unfounded confidence and kind of a dick. If you could...

Always Funny: Barbara Gray

This week It’s Always Funny in Salt Lake City is interviewing the wickedly funny, Barbara Gray. Barbara is a SLC born-L.A. bred comedian who does just about everything that you can do as a comedian.  She kills it in the “alt” scene as standup, hits up the UCB and Central Comedy stages as part of the live show of hilarious trio of funny females called Lady to Lady (who made an appearance at the Salt Lake Comedy Carnivale last year).  Podcasting and sketch is also a part of her arsenal.

Always Funny: Richie T. Steadman

I have been really excited about this interview for a long time.  Richie T. Steadman is always doing something.  I say he is Utah’s Ryan Seacrest.  You can catch him interview the famous and talented, chiming in on X96 in the mornings, on his popular blog and podcast, The Cultural Hall and pretty much anywhere else. I have appointed him the official “Mr. Ginger Utah 2014″ and I grow a ginger beard, so I totally be onboard with whatever he says or does. Richie is the founder of the Salt Lake Comedy Festival that runs today...

Always Funny: Bob Bedore

In our triumphant return from a short hiatus, we come back with a bang with one of the “Fathers of Utah Improv”, Bob Bedore. Bob’s comedy has spanned over 30 years and covered both improv and stand up comedy.  If it involves comedy in Utah, Bob has been there, done that.  Setting up improv troupes, opening for comedic superstars or oil wrestling with a wild grizzly bear. (Alright, I don’t know if that really happened, but I have heard rumors.) Bob is like Kim Kardasian in a Star Magazine, he can be see weekly. Except...
