Before producing & booking live comedy independently, Unusual Uptown had the pleasure of pairing up with The Midnight Suggestion for a string of comedy shows. The Midnight Suggestion is a stand-up comedy show that features out of town performers as well as top notch local acts. Initially billed as “the most awkward comedy Show in Richmond”, the Midnight Suggestion began in a tiny loft above Steady Sounds record store but has since become one of the city’s best showcases of alternative stand up comedy. It has since made rounds in top venues such as Gallery 5, Strange Matter, and the Broadberry, presenting well-known comedians such as Todd Barry, Kyle Kinane, Nick Thune and Neil Hamburger. From then on, Unusual Uptown partnered with local comedy group Rich Girls Comedy to bring underground comedy to larger venues in the city.
