Local comedian Brandon Judd will be taping his television debut tomorrow for FOX-TV's regional stand-up series One Mic Stand.
"It's kind of a party atmosphere," says Judd. In addition to three comics each performing short sets, the show also features jazz from the Smoothtimes Band and effusive host Michael Pittman. As for what prospective audience members might expect, "before the show starts, they will film you cheering. A lot. So they have it to cut to later," Judd supposes.
This will be one of the final Springfield appearances by Judd, who cut his teeth on local stages MC-ing at rock shows and performing at open mic nights throughout the region - he is relocating to St. Louis in a few weeks, where he plans to continue pursuing comedy. "I have some money saved up, so there should at least be a month or two before I have to start prostituting myself,"he chuckles.
