Have ya heard? Free For All presents: The Magnificent Seven comes to Boot & Saddle on Wednesday, February 26th, and the line-up includes stand-up and video sketch comedy titan JOHN MCKEEVER! We asked John some stuff:
Free For All: What has been your favorite comedy experience?
John McKeever: I got to see Chip lose Philly’s Phunniest twice.
FFA: Your sketch Samesies was an internet hit last year–we remember when it was a stand-up bit. What about that premise made you want to move it from one format to the other?
JM: I always liked the premise. I never really thought it worked on stage, at least not as well as I wanted, so I just thought I would script it out. You can see what great acting can do with a premise like Samesies. Christian, Chris, Darryl and Aaron made that sketch so much funnier than it read on paper. We actually shot a version of Samesies two years ago that we had to scrap because of audio issues. Blake Wexler was in the original so people also thought it was a little too gay.
FFA: Who is your comedy crush?
JM: Blake Wexler.
FFA: Who is the handsomest comedian on this bill?
JM: Me. Here’s the headshot I’d like you to use moving forward. I think you’ll see a “bump” in ticket sales if you know what I mean. (WINK EMOJI)
