Holy Fuck is fucking dead.
It was a delightful weekly comedy show run by Dave Ross
and Jeff Wattenhofer
Starting in November of 2009, sketch screenings and great stand-up comedy came to the Downtown Independent Theater
in Los Angeles for free every Tuesday night. (Actually, every other Tuesday for the first year. But almost!) If you were of a part of it, thank you. We had fun.
Louis CK performed on the show, as did Patton Oswalt and Aziz Ansari. Maria Bamford, Dana Gould, Marc Maron, The Sklar Brothers, Ron Lynch, Kyle Kinane, Eric Andre and Todd Glass became veritable regulars for a time, and many more came through for a night or two, including Demetri Martin, Margaret Cho, Natasha Leggero, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Tig Notaro, and countless other great comics the world will soon fall in love with. The show was featured in the LA Times, LA Weekly, LAist, the Nerdist Podcast, and more.
The show continued to grow and explode and yield great shows until 2013 when Jeff and Dave, feeling as if the project was nearing a close, recorded an album
and closed up shop. The last show ever, as recorded on Hi-8 in that video up there, was on July 2, 2013 and brought hundreds and hundreds of people to the Downtown Independent, Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron, dozens of other comics and an audience that kept the show going til 2am. It will be missed.
Other key players in the Holy Fuck universe included:
-- producer/booker/vegan chef, 2011-12
-- curator of Art Fuck and all-around producer, 2011-13
-- producer/promoter/booker, 2013
-- producer/graphic designer, 2013
-- video director/editor, 2011-13
G. Lewis Heslet
-- video director/editor, 2009-13
Allen Strickland Williams
-- DJ/buttface, 2009-2013
The show is currently on hiatus, but will hopefully return again soon in an even further developed form. No matter what happens next, though, we thank you so very, very much for being a part of something so wonderful -- for smiling and laughing and high-fiving and hugging and getting drunk and just having fun with us. You, the audience, were and are and always will be fucking amazing, and we cannot thank you enough.
