On July 9th, John Roberts, one of the standout performer/writers on YouTube, will wow the Comix audience with his original character work and stellar live performance skills! He and his very special secret guest will blow your minds!
John was recently featured on Vice Magazine's VBS.TV, and his first viral video, The Christmas Tree, was hailed as an instant comedy classic. It was nominated for a broadband Emmy award and was featured on Vh1's Best Week Ever, Comedy Central's Insider and countless blogs and websites. The follow up, Jackie & Debra, won The Comedy Smalls award in London and has a huge cult following. He has over 4 million hits on YouTube and counting.
Even with all that, John is just getting warmed up! He formed the band Opti-Grab which went on to play with such acts as Blondie, Gogol Bordello, Scissor Sisters and Tom Tom Club. His recent musical collaborations with Debbie Harry, Jack Pierson, and The Ones, are sure to make 2009 a rock hard year.
