Jonathan Pace

Austin

Jonathan W. Pace tries to write clever jokes. More often than not, he succeeds (or at least in the event that an attempt is unsuccessful, that joke will quietly die, while the good ones float to the top, much like..., um, like -- nevermind, can't think of a simile that's not disgusting).

Jonathan prides himself on not underestimating the intelligence of the audience (H. L. Mencken be damned!), but this isn't comedy for elitists either. If you hear a joke too heady for your tastes, the next is bound to be silly or absurd. By the end of the performance, you'll come away a better person for the experience, or at least a drunker person.
