Brock Wilbur Standup
Sep 20 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Brock Wilbur Standup

Brock Wilbur is a 6’7? twenty-something white male from Los Angeles trying his best not to be part of the problem. He was raised in Kansas and drank himself to death in Chicago indie bands, so the odds aren’t in his favor. On September 20th, he will be taping his third one-hour comedy special at Voodoo Comedy Playhouse in Denver, Colorado. Opening act for the special will be follow LA comic and podcast co-host Joe Starr, who will be recording the follow-up to his award winning debut album “Heroic Effort”.

We recommend Brock Wilbur if you’ve ever experienced the following symptoms:
– Anxiety from having too many ideas in your brain
– Delusions of pop-culture superiority
– Breaking someone’s heart to learn how it works
– Recurring thoughts of escapism
– Fear of a darkness that dwells inside you
– Book reading

If you believe you are a good candidate for Brock Wilbur, we prescribe his one-hour comedy specials “Crime Travel” (named one of Pandora Radio’s Top Comedy Albums of 2013) and 28 Years Later , which are both available through Rooftop Comedy. Or the feature film “Your Friends Close” and or the books “Exquisite Corpse” and “FILMPOCALYPSE!”

Wilbur has appeared on Comedy Central, NPR, NBC, Adult Swim, BitesizeTV, Huffington Post, Hopeless Records, 100% Wrong, Live Through This, Joe Moses Showses, various national commercials, and a guest arc as the bad guy in the award winning Top Cow Comics series “A Voice In The Dark.” In the Los Angeles area he produces bad-ass shows, the weekly BROCK PARTY podcast, the Ready! SET Art!!! web-series, and previously booked comedy for the prestigious Hollywood Fringe Festival.

“Wilbur is a comedian that will quickly enrapture audiences with quirky and original material, appealing to multiple tastes in nerdiness and pop-culture alike… Make no mistake; the material is flat out funny.” -Nate Rankin, America’s Comedy

“Wilbur soars with impressive comic effects. Highly recommended.” -Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve

“Pop-culture obsessed comedian Brock Wilbur taped Crime Travel on video inside a video store, an effect that makes it look as if the special was filmed deep inside the dystopian universe of Videodrome.” -Playboy

“Consider Brock your new obsession.” -Comedy Cake

“Trust me, this dude is going places, take this chance to say you knew him when.” -Joanna Robinson, Pajiba“BROCK IS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE A STALWART COMBINATION OF BEING BOTH HILARIOUS, ERUDITE, AND PROLIFIC.” -Film Crit Hulk, Bad-Ass Digest
