Doug Smith Makes “Pretty Much the Best Comedy Show” Debut at Proctors [Berkshire on Stage]
Rising New York comedian Doug Smith makes his Pretty Much the Best Comedy Show debut at Proctors’ Underground in Schenectady at 8pm on Saturday (April 28) Smith made a national splash in 2016 with a well-received appearance on “Conan.” He has also been seen on the small screen on AXS TV’s “Gotham Comedy Live” and Fuse TV’s “Uproarious.”
In 2011, Smith unexpectedly became a hero, intervening in a subway sexual assault that left him with 23 stitches, a large scar across his face and the insult-to-injury pain of a difficult law suit. Five years later, he turned tragedy to comedy with a web series called “Secret Weapon,” which received high praise from numerous comedy websites and was a finalist at the Channel 101 festival.
Since that time, Smith has become a staple on the festival circuit, with stops at the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the NY Comedy Festival, where he was chosen to host six sold out shows for Norm Macdonald.
