DJ Douggpound is taking his internet comedy series, “Pound House,” on tour, and they’re making a stop at the Madison Theater in Albany on Friday night (April 15). Doug is a comedian, film editor, writer and musician whose work has been featured on shows like “The Eric Andre Show,” “Portlandia” and “Tim & Eric’s Awesome Show.” Doug has completed multiple world tours in which he opened for Tim & Eric and Dr. Brule (John C. Reilly). DJ Douggpound can also currently be seen in the leading role of the internet series “Pound House” and the Adult Swim pilot “The Poundhole,” which was chosen as one of the Sundance Film Festival’s official short film selections for 2016. Doug also hosts The Poundcast, a popular weekly podcast with notable guests such as Natasha Leggero and Rick Springfield.
DJ Douggpound will be joined by Brent Weinbach, whose stand-up comedy is weird and stupid and visual and post-modern and random and other stuff. And, yes, he’s a recipient of the Andy Kaufman Award, which is given out annually to recognize innovation in stand-up comedy. Also on the bill on Friday will be special guests Dre Cerbin and Chris Barnes. Your host for the evening will be Ethan Ullman.
The performance takes place at 8pm on Friday (April 15), and tickets are $20 in advance; $25 at the door.
