collaborative projects

This is a list of projects I organize or have organized in the past. Each one is collaborative, and unless a collaborator is mentioned, you can assume they include the people with Flying Squid Comedy.

krakin jokes

Krakin Jokes is a backyard comedy show started in July 2015. The bimonthly show has grown organically through word of mouth to the point it has outgrown the house. The show currently happens bi-monthly at Creature Comforts Brewing Company on the second Sunday. Check the Flying Squid calendar for the next event.

coffee for communists

Coffee for Communists is a long-form improvised podcast based on three loserish characters who work (and live) at a failing ideological radio station. Each episode the crew brings on a new oddball guest character to interview and challenge them to a game of wits. Callers participate in the hijinks, ask deep-cutting questions, and play along. Season 1 aired live in 2018 and is being properly (re-)released in full on Spotify, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, and iTunes.

weenie mag

Cheap smut for the modern dope! Weenie Mag satisfies every itch your brain ever had (we know an itchy brain when we see one!). Weenie Mag is currently on hiatus (the sweetest word in the English language).

the flying squid spectacular

The Flying Squid Spectacular is a cabaret format sketch show written and performed by the Krakin Jokes folks. The first tour was Summer 2018. Keep your eyes peeled for the next tour and The Flying Squid Live, a livestreamed version of the show.

tuning fork human arts festival

The Tuning Fork Human Arts Festival was an annual backyard festival showcasing local comedy, music, poetry, and visual art. It began as the collaboration of Krakin Jokes, Dude, Where's My Poetry?, and Taylor Chicoine's Pity Party Social Club. Since the county has cracked down on the house shows the project has been on... ahem... hiatus.

the flying squid

The Flying Squid (formerly Tuning Fork) is a comedy collective, creative incubator, and promoter. All of these projects have been migrated and consolidated under the umbrella of The Flying Squid in hopes that they can spark new projects, cultivate a creative community through collaboration, and connect artists to new audiences. Follow the link below to see where we are now.

Many of these projects are now under the umbrella The Flying Squid. Check out the link below to see how they are evolving.
