We had the pleasure of witnessing Rhea destroy the crowd of the Tiger Room last june when she was with her wife Cameron Esposito, and we are so thrilled that she is stopping by Fort Wayne for another amazing night of comedy!
Rhea Butcher is a Los Angeles-based standup comic, actor and writer who has appeared on Comedy Central, NBC’ s Last Comic Standing, Buzzfeed and Funny Or Die Presents. Originally from the Midwest, Rhea grew up skateboarding the mean streets of Akron, Ohio. Her blue collar brand of cool has endeared her to audiences nationwide, both in her live appearances opening for comics like Pete Holmes, Anthony Jeselnik, Maria Bamford and Cameron Esposito in large theatre venues, or her podcast appearances on shows like You Made It Weird, How Did This Get Made? and Sklarboro Country. In 2016, Rhea will debut her first television series, “Take My Wife” for NBCUniversal’s new Seeso platform, launch a web series on Legendary/Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls Network, host recurring segments as the first correspondent on Paul F. Tompkins’ “No You Shut Up” on Fusion, appear at SF Sketchfest for the 3rd year running and release her first standup album with Kill Rock Stars Records.
Joining her will be former audience member of Happy's Place and Fort Wayne native Goodrich Gevaart and hosted by Let's Comedy Favorite Stephanie Hasz
