Somewhat beloved and accomplished comedian and storyteller Emmett Montgomery (NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Seattle Weekly’s best comic of 2015, one of City Arts Magazine’s artists of 2015 and other things) will be recording a live stand up album for A Special Thing Records. Each show will be hosted by Weird and Awesome regulars Travis Vogt and Kevin Clarke and feature prizes, sharing and songs and stories from special guests.
