The Wild East: Care to comment on the fact that this event will draw the best in today’s comedic talent to an unknown part of Taiwan… for nothing but free alcohol as pay? What does that say about the comics?! Are you all boozehounds or … deeply devoted to comedy or some horsesh*t like that? I don’t get it. Somebody please explain the motivations/inspirations going on here?

Matt Bronsil: I could get beer for cheeper by staying home and not travelling. I’m a stage whore.

Luke Georgiou‎’s rule of stand up Take stage time whenever you can. I went out last weekend and everyone I spoke to is talking about it. Word’s really buzzing around town and it looks to be a full house, 100-something people.

Robert Pratt: I’m doing this show because, truthfully, I’m very devoted to comedy in Taiwan. I’ll drag my guitar and props anywhere there’s a show, and I don’t care about the money or paying to travel there. The rush you get from being onstage and making people laugh is a blast, and quite addictive once you get good at it. Seeing your friends perform is also super-fun, because they’re also funny as hell. Events like this build up the local community in a friendly atmosphere. Making new friends is also a bonus. No horsesh*t!
