Simply aPauling Jan 9th: Robot Johnson-Candice Cortinas & Brandon Ballard

Photo of Robot JohnsonTune into Charlotte Community Radio Monday, December 12th from 9:00pm to 10:00pm for another LIVE broadcast of Simply aPauling with in-studio guests Candice Cortinas and Brandon Ballard, two original members of Charlotte’s longest running sketch comedy group Robot Johnson.

Robot Johnson is made up of an eclectic mix of actors, writers, stand ups, improv, and sketch comedy veterans. That mix allows them to create original content shows that will have a little something for everyone and a lot of something for sketch fans. The group formed in late 2008. Since then, they’ve written and produced well over a hundred original-content sketch comedy shows.

Robot Johnson has, over the years, won a number of accolades, boons, pittances, and windfalls such as a Metrolina Theatre Award in 2009, Charlotte Magazine’s Best Sketch Comedy Group in 2010 & 2013, Funniest Twitter account in 2013, Funniest Instagram in 2014. In addition to delighting comedy fans in Charlotte, Robot Johnson performs in comedy festivals across the Southeast including the Charleston Comedy Festival, NC Comedy Arts Festival, The New South Comedy Festival, and Asheville’s SketchFest.

I am really excited to have Candice and Brandon on the show this week. Up until this point, all my shows have been with either stand up comedians or improvisers, so it will be a lot of fun talking to them and looking at comedy through a different perspective. Being the longest running sketch comedy group in Charlotte, I am also interested in hearing what they have to say about the growth of comedy in Charlotte in the past 5-10 years, and where they think Charlotte can be in the next 5-10 years. Make sure to tune in Monday night for this plus much more.
