Maniacal Magician Offends Moms at Post-Prom

“Magicians are assholes!”  I exclaim as we open this edition of The 4:20 Report.  Today, “The Maniac of Magic” Nathan Tricky Allen calls in to address the latest rumors surrounding The Dirty Jokes & Magic Tricks Show.

He also tells the story of why he won’t perform at post-proms anymore… what separates him from the average corn-ball lame-ass “comedy” magicians… (clue: he’s actually funny) … and the latest development in his career- we may soon be calling him “Professor.”

Nathan will be headlining The Grassroots Comedy Tour this Saturday, September 9 in Qunicy, Illinois at Martini’s 515.

Introducing “Earth’s MIGHTIEST Road Comics”

Everyone loves to laugh.  By it’s very definition.

Laughter is a euphoric release of emotions. They say 1-minute of laughter boosts your immunity system for up to 24-hours.

Now more than ever, people need a reason to get out of the house, forget about the stress of the day, blow off steam, have a few drinks, and share some laughs.

Most bars that bring in live entertainment offer the same things over and over.  The people demand more.  They demand variety.

That’s why we created The Grassroots Comedy Tour.

The Grassroots Comedy Tour is a series of monthly LIVE comedy nights taking place at nightclubs, taverns, and neighborhood bars throughout the Midwest.   A rotating roster of America’s TOP road comics is the hallmark of the series, with one consistent theme: Hilarious high-level performers delivering the FUNNIEST, mind-blowing, unforgettable, 90-minute comedy experience of your life.

You will leave with a 3-MONTH immunity-boost!

In the comedy game, you either stay sharp or get sloppy.   The Grassroots Comedy Tour headliners are constantly on the road, in front of audiences night after night, which keeps them sharp and keeps the laughs coming.

Hence the label- “Earth’s Mightiest Road Comics.”

You will probably recognize many of these headliners from their wide variety of national media appearances throughout the years, including a number of comedy albums produced,  podcasts, YouTube channels, and social media.

In 2006, the movie Road Dogs was released- a comedy documentary detailing the origins of The Grassroots Comedy Tour.  A second film titled American Smartass was released in 2010, picking back up with my original crew of Josh Alton, Daryl Moon and Rob Rivera.

Our roster is currently made up over two dozen totally unique headliners touring to half a dozen venues from September 2017 through May 2018.
