Comedian Geoff Tate is keeping focused going into 2011. “Really, just doing stand-up,” he reports, “it’s kind of taking a turn into only telling stories. For the past six or seven months that’s been my focus. It’s a little shift in how I do it.”
Speaking to CityBeat from Philadelphia, where he was featuring for Gary Gulman, Tate tells of a pleasant surprise while performing in the city of the cheese steak. “This had never happened before,” he says, “but somebody actually yelled out ‘Do the acid story!’ during a show.
Sharing the bill with Tate is former Miami University student-turned-headlining-comic, Jeremy Essig. The comedians perform at Go Bananas in Montgomery, Thursday-Sunday Showtime is 8 p.m. with additional 10:30 p.m. sets Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $8-$12.
