After more than four years as a touring comedy collective, the Beards of Comedy – Andy Sandford (Adult Swim’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Rooftop Comedy’s Silver Nail), Dave Stone (Adult Swim’s Squidbillies, LA Weekly’s 12 Comics to Watch), TJ Young (UCBLA’sComedy Death-Ray, “Stand Out Stand-Up” Laugh Your Asheville Off Festival) and Joe Zimmerman (Timeout NY, Laughing Skull Festival Finalist) – have decided to draw the curtains on their impressive group run in favor of pursuing new collaborations and individual projects. The Beards of Comedy part ways on good terms and with fond memories and gratitude for all they’ve managed to accomplish together.
Since forming in Atlanta, Georgia in 2008, The Beards of Comedy have performed hundreds of shows all across the country, bringing their mix of stand-up, sketch, music, and improv to countless comedy clubs, music venues, and theaters. Between performances at large colleges and headlining some of the country’s best clubs and comedy rooms, The Beards also released two albums (2009’s “Comedy for People” for Rooftop Comedy Productions and 2011’s “Cardio Mix” on Comedy Central Records), created and released several viral sketches on YouTube and FunnyorDie.com and their most recent web series “Beards Across America” (on MSN.com) has received over 1,000,000 views and counting.
The Beards of Comedy would like to thank all of the friends and fans who provided support and encouragement throughout this incredible journey.
