Instead of the usual monthly parade of wonder and awkward sharing that features brilliant people doing the things they are really good at doing or something the have never done on stage before. 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.

ABOUT EMMETT MONTGOMERY:

Emmett Montgomery is a comedian/storyteller who was made in Utah but has lived in Seattle for most of the 21st century and been failing beautifully on and off the stage for over a decade. When he is not wandering the country telling jokes and falling in love with America, he produces local shows that focus on building community, pushing the limits of what it means to be a performer and celebrating the unique beauty of the city he lives in (Weird and Awesome with Emmett Montgomery, The Magic Hat) Emmett was part of the top 100 in NBC’s Last Comic Standing Season 9 (2015). He performs at festivals across the country including the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Sasquatch Music Festival and the Women In Comedy Festival and can be heard on podcasts like Risk!, Put Your Hands Together and Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction and has worked with famouses and brilliants like Maria Bamford, Dave Chappelle and TJ Miller. Mr. Montgomery has a lot of hope in his heart, he also has a lot of nightmares, he writes and tells jokes about both those things.

Not Pants

curated by Bret Fetzer and Troy Mink
Nov 7-20, 2009 | Fri-Sat 11pm

Come hear stories of sexual misadventure, accidental arson, bad dates, sheep-tossing (which is not a euphemism), scars gained, condoms lost, unfortunately named drinks, and much, much more. NOT PANTS is a compendium of true tales from the lips of great local performers, including David Schmader, Jennifer Jasper, José Amador, Emmett Montgomery, Keira McDonald, Gillian Jorgensen, Michele Colyn, and many many more! Curated by Bret Fetzer and Troy Mink.

Due to a potential intellectual property dispute, Annex Theatre has canceled its impending production of Hot Pants, a fusion of storytelling and game show. But rather than let all the juicy stories we’d been promised go to waste, we’ve invited all the performers to take the Annex stage and reveal the comic, preposterous, and sometimes embarrassing true things that have happened to them.

And as an added bonus, Not Pants will still feature the HOT PANTS DANCERS!
