Since December, 2007 ”Comics and Comics” has been entertaining crowds with the geekiest stand-up comedy imaginable.  The material presented within the show covers all things fanboy: comic books, movies, videogames, role-playing, action figures, etc. The show was created by stand-up veteran Tom Franck who books comedians who are not only the finest working today, but who have the geek street cred appropriate for the show.   Franck himself can claim the ultimate nerd comedian status as an appearance in Green Lantern 143 labeled him as the top comedian in the DC universe.
Due to the high volume of comedians requesting to perform on Comics and Comics since its launch, another version of the show, Crisis On Infinite Comics and Comics, was started several months after the regular show. While the normal “Comics and Comics” shows feature about six comedians, Crisis shows have lineups of 15-20 comics. This secondary venue allows comedians appropriate for the theme of the show to be recognized and booked much sooner than if the Crisis didnt exist.

Each “Comics and Comics” show begins with a trivia contest to warm up the crowd.  Because of the geek erudition of the crowd, seldom is the audience stumped no matter how ridiculously difficult the questions become.

Comics and Comics shows also feature a monologue by Tom Franck called But Lets Face It an opinion piece which addresses topics relevant to the world of fanboys.  “But Let’s Face It” has quickly become a highlight of the show and seen much popularity on in the internet.

Audience members of Comics and Comics are not only treated to an evening of top-notch stand-up comedy, but can also quench their thirst with a stunning variety of exotic cane-sugar sodas including: Faygo, Boylans and Mexican Coke at the open bar.

Comics and Comics was featured on a segment on NPRs Marketplace and has been performed at the San Diego Comic-Con, Anime Expo and the Long Beach Comic-Con.
