The Shakeytown Shakedown - Comedy Variety Show Extravaganza in Hollywood is happening on Thursday, December 15, 2022 at 09:30PM PST at The Pack Theater with tickets starting at $10.00
How do you describe a comedy show that will never be the same twice?? Great question.
At the Shakeytown Shakedown, Stormchaser (Travis Cox, Andrew Pish, and Anatasha Blakely) has brought together a legendary cast of brave, adventurous, and HILARIOUS performers from around the world. A brand new theatrical experience every. single. show. Part improv, part dance, part clown, part stand up, part mystery... one hundred percent fun.
We can't tell you what will happen next, because tonight’s show doesn’t exist yet. It only exists in the near future, waiting patiently (and anxiously) to spontaneously appear in front of you.
Established in 2013, Stormchaser is an improv team that has performed together in over 550 shows and a handful of festivals across the United States. We don’t do a normal comedy show - as someone once told us after our show, “one thing’s for sure, when Stormchaser is performing, I never look at my phone.” Mischievous, joyful, flowing, poetic, surreal, risky. Stormchaser improvises every part of the show and blends many forms of theater to create a uniquely electric style. We also like to take each other’s clothes off on stage.
Stormchaser began as just an improv team, but now, we’ve also produced the Stormchaser Improv Podcast Show (available onSpotifyand Apple Podcasts) where we interview other improvisers and artists and dig deep into improv, art, and creativity.

Travis is by far the tallest member of Stormchaser. By far. It’s important that you know that. If you see him please compliment him on how tall he is. Especially if Andrew is within ear shot. Travis first performed improv with his friends at the age of 12 playing games from ‘Who’s Line’ to a video camera in his families basement. (The tapes have since been burned.) Years later he went on to study & perform (for actual humans) with Off the Cuff Comedy in Cedar City, Utah & eventually in LA at iO West. He’s been with Stormchaser since 2013 &, all bits aside, he considers playing & working with these tiny creative geniuses a huge honor. Along with being the tallest member of Stormchaser (by far) Travis is a working actor and has enjoyed success on the stage & screen.?
Andrew began his comedy journey at the Hideout Theater in Austin, TX in 2009. There he performed in the main stage show Spirited - improvising new Lewis Carol and Hayao Miyazaki-inspired fantasies. In Los Angeles, he performed at iO West and produced the main stage show Doctor Who Live, improvising new episodes of the popular BBC fantasy TV show Doctor Who. He has been improvising in Los Angeles with Stormchaser since 2013 and is known, by everyone who has seen them perform, as “the heart and soul of Stormchaser - and we wouldn’t just say that, we mean it 100%, this isn’t Andrew.” Andrew also teaches improv workshops where he blends improv, clown, and mindfulness. Andrew loves this work but is “so ready” to score cheap laughs and get famous.?
