Auggie Smith and Todd Yohn perform at the Legendary Buffalo Chip wednesday August 8th, 2007
When Auggie Smith takes the stage, audiences across the country quickly realize that they’re in for an evening of riveting, take-no-prisoners standup comedy. A night with Auggie is like a night in a comfortable foxhole, a non-stop barrage of comedy shrapnel. During Auggie’s set, pop culture and political targets are dissected piece by piece into intelligently written manic rants. His seamless rapid-fire style brings a much needed youthful enthusiasm to stand-up comedy.
A favorite at comedy clubs across the US and Canada, Smith first achieved national recognition on the syndicated Bob and Tom radio show (heard in more than 150 markets). This led to him playing sold out shows with the hugely popular “Friends of Bob and Tom Comedy Tour”. A seasoned veteran of standup, Smith has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham” and at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival to great acclaim. He is the star of his own standup DVD, Cult Following, and his comedy rants are in heavy rotation on both XM and Sirius satellite radio.
Todd's non-stop, high-energy act blends stand-up, improv and music. His outrageous parodies, such as Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" and "The Munsters Theme Song", are a direct result of his abilities as an accomplished musician and song writer. He is also one of the few performers today who has the ability to generate laughs by the sheer uniqueness of his personality, which along with his material and uncanny sense of timing makes him one of the hottest comedy performers in the country. His cartoon facial expressions and body language will have you thinking you're seeing more than one person. He's a 6'4" redhead who can become the Incredible Shrinking Man or Quadro Man. He is a top requested act on both the college circuit and the national club network. To say that he is a crowd pleaser is an understatement.
