She walks on stage looking urban cool and begins rolling out the jokes, starting slow and sure getting the audience comfy and relaxed. Then she is moving on to staccato pace with well honed material 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:
Christmas is coming and I like to make my gifts, you know something crafty. But it doesn’t seem fair to the recipients of these gifts. I mean, they give me some electronic shiny thing from Radio Shack and I give them a glitter piggy bank made out of a clorox bottle. Hey it’s my tradition.
