Fred Armisen’s “Comedy For Musicians But Everyone is Welcome” Tour Stops at The Lyric Theatre February 4
Comedian Fred Armisen is bringin his “Comedy For Musicians But Everyone Is Welcome” tour to Oxford February 4, 2019.
The latest show from the comedian — of “Saturday Night Live,” “Portlandia,” and “Documentary Now!” — combines his musical skills with signature deadpan and absurdist humor and intense dedication to extremely dumb-smart bits. The audience for his 2018 Netflix special “Standup For Drummers” was made up entirely of drummers, the subject of his percussion-focused observational humor.
He also has released a series of singles performed in character-bands (among them: soft rock duo The Bjelland Brothers, art rockers The Fingerlings, hardcore punk band Crisis of Conformity, and ’70s rock band The Blue Jean Committee, also the subject of a “Documentary Now!” two-parter).
He also released a 28-minute instructional DVD as Jens Hannemann, a drummer known for his patented “Complication Drumming Technique.”
The “Comedy for Musicians But Everyone is Welcome” will take place at The Lyric Theatre in Oxford February 4.
