She walks on stage looking urban cool and she begins rolling out the jokes, starting slow and sure and moving on to staccato and soon she is hitting on all cylinders, spitting out jokes, quips, songs, impressions, interactions, bird calls and with deep resources to draw from, all of Poppy’s shows can be described as spin art – “No two alike.”
Poppy is crackerjack at the craft of Improv. Throw anything at her and watch as she magically turns it into comedic fodder.
Poppy’s experience with classic standup and improv, gives her a double-barreled flexibility that works particularly well with her subjects of choice.
Besides Poppy’s deep comedic chops, she actually has a seriously good voice that she puts to use during her performance making sure to end every show on a good note.
“Poppy was a freakin’ ball of comedic thunder,” says one fan.
Joke of the week:
You know alcohol has a lot of calories right, so for those watching their weight a certain Liquor maker has manufactured a new product with the alluring name Skinny Vodka. I’m thinking, what is it, water? Water is skinny vodka. I just had two glasses of the stuff and I’m skinny drunk. Sober as a judge.
Gig of the week:
