Andrew Sleighter at Naked City Brewery
Andrew Sleighter is one of the funniest young jokewriters in the current crop of recent Seattle emigrants to Los Angeles. His jokes have an effortless arithmetic that is the hallmark of a great technician. Beneath the plain-spoken delivery and seemingly innocuous subject matter there are virtual quadratic equations of comedy working themselves out from premise to punchline. It is a craft that, when done right, is more subversive and undeniable than a thousand shock comics pushing hot buttons for cheap laughs.
Here is a recent clip of Sleighter's standup.
Andrew Sleighter will be at the Naked City Brewery July 28.
