The Magnetic Theatre presents… STAND-UP SPOTLIGHT Art Sturtevant: Tales from the Sturteverse
January 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$12.00
It was the dawn of time — the early 1980’s. DeLoreans and mullets roamed the Earth. And Art Sturtevant was doing stand up comedy. It was a golden age — a time of laughter and Ginsu Knife jokes and Lee Trevino imitations, but it ended suddenly in 1985. What happened? Some say he was frozen in a liquid nitrogen accident. Others say he took a series of field management jobs with national corporations. Just as suddenly as he’d disappeared, Art surfaced again in the open mic venues of 2010.
Art’s a smart, funny comic with the interests of a 20-year old and the body of a middle-age man. His observations on pop culture, being a father and how you can change so much and so little over the span of decades have cracked up audiences all over the East Coast.
Art Sturtevant has performed at Laughing Skull, Comedy Zones, Side Splitters, The Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, and — back in the day — NYC’s Comedy Cellar, Catch a Rising Star, Sweeps and Triple Inn. Art’s a contributing writer for Asheville Disclaimer, a weekly satire publication.
