Claude VonStroke tries his hand at stand up comedy on episode four of ‘Stroke Show’ [Watch]
Attendees of DIRTYBIRD collective’s iconic festival, the Dirtybird Campout, know stand up comedy shows to be an integral thread in the recreational fabric of the event. Each year, Dirtybird Campout comedy director, Blakeshine, coordinates live comedy sketches that guarantee attendees belly-aching laughs in between sets. A demonstrated expert in the comic realm, Blakeshine gives label head honcho, Claude VonStroke, a crash course in stand up comedy on episode four of VonStroke’s newly minted talk show, Stroke Show.
VonStroke’s first formal endeavor in stand up sees him experiment with parody in his characteristic convivial manner. “I’m only here because my employees put me up to it!” VonStroke says at the beginning of his routine. VonStroke’s good-natured, warm personality creates an immediate stage presence that contributes to the Dirtybird boss’ successful comic debut.
