Theater 99 will be host to the first ever 'Most Races Show on Earth Presents…' stand-up comedy show on Saturday, May 12th.

MRSOE! Presents… is a spin-off series to the highly successful multicultural comedic showcase, "The Most RACES Show on Earth!" which is coming off a recent sold-out run at the 2012 Charleston Comedy Festival.

Along the lines of the original show concept of examining racial differences through the lens of laughter, MRSOE! Presents…will spotlight two of the funniest, edgiest, multicultural comedians from the extensive MRSOE! roster. Through funny and edgy comedy audiences realize that although we may be different on the surface, we are essentially all the same because we all laugh at the same things.

Performing at MRSOE! on May 12 are Noah Gardenswartz and Landry.

Noah Gardenswartz, the Jewish-American comedian is one of the few comedians that work the mainstream, alt, and urban comedy scenes. He is comfortable performing for any audience (though his niche is with high, black Jews). He was recently featured in AirTran’s GO! Magazine as one of Atlanta’s rising comedy stars, and his credits include TBS’ “Today’s Riff,” Comcast’s “Trial by Laughter,” FarkTV, and the films Slice 1 and 2.

Landry, the Jamaican-Canadian is on his way to joining the ranks of the second kind of single-name-havers. When he’s not participating in national comedy festivals, or winning awards voted on by his peers, he simply takes to the city’s stages and rips. Whether waxing intellectual on mundane pop-culture phenomena, or acting out the punchlines to an expose of multicultural silliness, Landry is a gifted performer who always seems to be having as much fun as the audience. Landry’s most recent feat was winning the 2011 stand-up comedy competition at the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival.

This night full of entertainment will be hosted by comedian and producer Neil Bansil, Filipino-Canadian-American (Yuk Yuk’s), and will feature local performers Sarah Porter (Theatre 99 company member) and Dusty Slay (2012 Charleston Comedy Festival stand-up comedy competition winner).

MRSOE! Presents…Landry and Noah takes place on Saturday, May 12th at 10 p.m. at Theatre 99. Tickets are $12.50.
