Next Wednesday, March 23, you have the opportunity to laugh along with—or at, I suppose—a group of on-stage attorneys.
Comedians at Law will appear that evening at StandUpLive in downtown Phoenix. I’ve seen members of this crew before, and yuks both legal and illegal are guaranteed. (That’s all to the good, I assure you.)
If the promise of legal humor is not enough (say it ain’t so!), how does a promo code make you feel? That’s right, merely use the promo code LAWYER to get $5 off.
The headliner, it appears, is Matt Ritter:
“Matt Ritter recently traded big law for the big stage. He graduated from the University Pennsylvania Law School and worked as a corporate lawyer at both Kirkland and Ellis and Mayer Brown before leaving the law to pursue a career in entertainment.”
Years ago, I worked at Mayer Brown—before I was a lawyer (don’t ask)—so I have to suspect that Matt’s comedy comes from a very deep-seated pain; I know mine does. (Let it out, Matt!)
Also appearing that evening will be a few local legal favorites: Matt Storrs, Nancy Stanley, and Bob Howard.
I’ve covered these legal comedians before, here and here, for instance. And Matt Storrs has been tearing up the downtown Phoenix comedy scene via his work on The Storrs Objection and the Phoenix Educational Programming (P.E.P.) Rally, co-hosted by the irrepressible Hattie Jean Hayes.
Matt also appears pretty regularly on the stage of Space 55, a theatre whose board I’m pleased to serve on.
Meanwhile, Nancy Stanley’s day job is within the hallowed halls of a prominent Arizona law school (an assistant DEAN, for god’s sake). So, just like Matt Ritter, cue the deep-seated pain. If you see Nancy, before or after her set, buy her a drink, wouldja?
I hope to be there next Wednesday, laughing along with the comics. Remember: Buy your tickets here, promo code LAWYER.Follow @azatty
