People's Republic of Komedy brings solid talent

by James Whitely - SGN Contributing Writer

Laff Hole
October 7 and 21
Chop Suey


On September 16, SGN attended "Laff Hole," Seattle's alt-comedy spectacle, which features stand-up, sketch and other "nonsense." Produced by the People's Republic of Komedy (PRoK), Laff Hole runs the first and third Wednesday of every month at Chop Suey.

Headlined by James Adomian, who was recently featured on the cover of Out Magazine, and hosted by PRoK co-founder Emmett Montgomery, this particular Laff Hole had some strong talent. Adomian, a member of the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater - which you may remember from Comedy Central - put on a solid stand-up performance.

The night also featured a hardcore Gay porn cartoon featuring E.T. the extra terrestrial, with his unusual, blossoming, flower-like equipment.

PRoK has anywhere from 15-30 regular local comedians for its events. "We're kind of a nebulous organization of comedians," co-founder of PRoK Kevin Hyder told SGN.

The show has local roots, starting at the Capitol Hill Arts Center. "We're very Capitol Hill-centric," Hyder told SGN. You may be familiar with People's Republic of Coffee - the similar names aren't a coincidence; the business owner and co-founder, Hyder, dabbles in both coffee and comedy.

PRoK performed the last two years at Sasquatch, and they curate the Vera Project stage at Bumbershoot. "We are kind of at the epicenter of the alt-comedy community here in Seattle," said Hyder

PRoK used to do a weekly show at Re-bar, but they've been doing the bi-weekly at Chop Suey since February, which has been very successful. This is made obvious from how quickly the house fills up, mostly with regulars.

PRoK has other weeklies, monthlies and bi-monthlies, including a monthly nonprofit show at the Comedy Underground in Pioneer Square. Charities include various youth, environment and LGBT causes.

Doors are at 9 p.m., a band plays at 9:30 p.m., and the show starts at 10 and goes until midnight. Cover is $7. This is a 21+ event. For more information check out www.prokomedy.org.
