“Some of the things I’m talking about on stage are uncomfortable for me to talk about,” says comedian and Cincinnati native Geoff Tate, “but I do that because I think that’s funny.”
You gotta give the people what they want, as The Kinks once sang. “I always try to do what I would want to see as an audience member,” Tate says. “I don’t want to hear some terrible joke about soccer or any of that shit. I want to know what drives the individual.”
He doesn’t talk much about current events in his stand-up act, but he does have an outlet for that type of humor.
They’ve already become quite fond of L.A. “We live 30 minutes from the beach, we have a nice patio and we just love the fact that it’s warm,” he says.
Tate performs Thursday-Sunday at Go Bananas in Montgomery. Showtimes are at 8 p.m. each night with an additional 10:30 p.m. performance Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $8-$12.
