ANNOUNCEMENT: Grawlix Show to Close out 2014 Cape Fear Comedy Festival @grawlixcomedy

Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy and Andrew Orvedahl, The Grawlix
Less than two years ago I was turned on to The Grawlix web series.  The show features three stand-up comedians that are being followed around by a pair of film making twins (The Nix Brothers) that they have hired to document their lives. It begins with a conversation between group members Adam Cayton-Holland and Ben Roy about the fact that Evan and Adam Nix want to film them (watch pilot episode).  However, the Nix Brothers have already begun filming them. Pefect series opening joke.  I ended up watching all of the episodes in about a week.  It was this that got me interested in finding out more about The Grawlix.

The Grawlix 
Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy and Andrew Orvedahl are The Grawlix. Hailing from Denver, Colorado, the trio has done something I find amazing.  Sustain their comedy careers while not moving to New York or L.A. The Grawlix is a comedy show That has happened monthly since January of 2011.  It current resides in the Bug Theatre in Denver and sells out every month with lines down the block to see the show. The show features a new set of stand-up from all three comics as well as an all-star list of special guests.  We are excited to have them put on a Grawlix show to close out the 5th Annual Cape Fear Comedy Festival on Saturday May 10th at City Stage, our 230 seat theatre atop the Masonic Building on 21 N. Front Street in downtown Wilmington, NC. Special guests will be on board for this one too, we are so pumped!!

Ben Roy to headline Friday Night May 9th
Also, on Friday night we will be closing out the night with a headlining set by Ben Roy from the Grawlix.  Ben performs all over the country headlining comedy clubs and was very well received at one of the last shows held at Nutt Street Comedy Room last year.  We are pumped to have him and his compadres in comedy from the Mile High City to help us make the 2014 Cape Fear Fest the best ever!
