Chase Durousseau is a household name that even smart people have trouble spelling. A Creole Texan, his easy going delivery and unique rapid-fire animated mannerisms have captivated audiences around the globe. Growing up latch key and down the street from a dollar theater, his early childhood consisted of getting dropped off at theme parks, the movies and pulling pranks on strangers that would eventually become his friends. He then proceeded to crash so many of these peoples family get togethers that eventually everywhere he went felt like home.
After volunteering for Red Cross during Hurricane Katrina, he couldn’t stop talking to people, took his insatiable lust for blabbering to the stage and has been there ever since. After starting comedy he won Houston's Funniest Person Contest, entertained U.S. Troops in Kuwait and Iraq. He performed at Moontower Comedy Festival with Hannibal Buress, opened for Craig Robinson and The Nasty Delicious on the east coast, and with Norm Macdonald, Jo Koy, Anjelah Johnson, Steve Byrne, Louis CK, Bill Burr and more in the south.
He currently lives in Los Angeles where he regularly performs around town and hosts a popular live weekly show called “Midnight Snack” at the Hollywood Improv.
Come see the stars of the future and the comedians of the present!
The open mic sign up is from 5:30pm to 5:40pm and the show starts at 5:45pm. Everyone writes their name on a slip of paper and throws it into a bucket, at 5:45pm the host will grab the bucket, walk on stage, and start the show. Comics are drawn directly from the bucket so anyone has the chance to perform!
If you're selected it's a TIGHT 3 minute set, that means you get blasted off with music right at the 3 minute mark so come prepared.
It's a NO COVER, NO MINIMUM PURCHASE show, so come out and enjoy an evening of randomness!
