Tomorrow Night: A Very Weepy, Breast-Beaty Laff Hole

posted by on March 25 at 12:42 PM

Tomorrow, a little bit of Seattle comedy will die.

Scott Moran—one of the four founders of the People’s Republic of Komedy—will perform his final Laff Hole before moving to New York.

Meaning this’ll be the last time you’ll see Scott and Emmett and Dan and Kevin on the same stage for a long time. Maybe forever.

It’s the end of an era. Other promising young comedians have fled Seattle (godspeed, Hari Kondabolu), but PROK has been the center of gravity for the Seattle alternative comedy scene, which has given us Laff Hole and a bunch of other crap we like: Lo Ball, the Entertainment Show, Dartmondo, the Week of Fun, Get Lowded, and Blood Squad—which has the unprecedented distinction of being favorably reviewed by Lindy West, Cienna Madrid, Annie Wagner, and me. And we’re all bitches.

Anyway: Scott. He’s a charming, funny guy who looks good in a suit jacket and wears his age better than anybody else in the Seattle comedy scene—maybe anybody else in Seattle:

See? You can also admire Scott talking about Dave Matthews here and Transformers here.

Laff Hole. Tomorrow night. Chop Suey. 8 pm. The end of an era.

And, finally, please enjoy this picture of the original “laff hole”:

That's what frequents the Eagle nowadays?

this is sort of an inappropriate picture. a local boy died recently because he stuck his head in the sand after seeing it on a cartoon show.

Dan is pretty excited about gourmet pizza!

I don't think of tonight as an end of an era, it is more of the beginning of a new chapter. Several people have stepped in to fill the genius shaped hole that Scott is leaving behind him. It isn't just a handful of guys anymore. We have a great community of comics that Scott helped create and I am looking forward to seeing what they can do. I am also excited to see what he does in New York and I know that he is going to keep in touch and still be an active voice in the scene like Hari is. Scott is leaving his caccoon and becoming a butterfly.

So it's a bad idea to go to Laffhole at 8 and Piecora's at 9?

Posted by Chas | March 26, 2008 12:39 PM

Chas, its all about the eggplant pizza, oh yeah! And of course laughing hysterically at the four sons of Seattle!

We're gonna miss you Scott. =(
