"I had no idea how they would fuse comedy and
poetry together, but let me tell you, they did it,
and they did it incredibly well. What stood out
the most to me was the passion that you two
had and that you customize every performance.
I felt inspired not only as the coordinator of the
event, but as an audience member, a University
student, and a fellow human being.”

Bio

COMETRY is an exciting, energetic new art form that blends performance poetry and stand up comedy into clean, clever, observational entertainment. Each performance is designed to highlight the similarities, habits, and traits that we all share, but often go unnoticed. Every COMETRY piece or "coem" does a few things: it tells a story, raises awareness, or delivers an inspirational message, all while making you laugh.

***We brought COMETRY back to the University of South Alabama because what you two do is amazing. The fusion of comedy and poetry is truly like nothing else I’ve seen in the college market. Students are taken on a roller coaster ride of emotions when they attend a COMETRY show and I think the ride is so beneficial to them. Giving someone the opportunity to laugh, cry, and have their mind opened all in one show is truly special and I don’t know of anyone else that could do it the way you two do. I will say it’s something that has to be experienced. Watching the videos will give you a taste, but being in the same space as you two, well, it’s something else. We're looking at how we can bring COMETRY back to USA again (for the 3rd time)! I think there will always be someone who can benefit from a COMETRY performance.

What stood out the most to me was the passion that you two had and that you customize every performance. I felt inspired not only as the coordinator of the event, but as an audience member, a University student, and a fellow human being. You all are very easy to work with and definitely deliver for performances. I heard a lot of people comment (positively) on the Father’s Day piece and it seemed like that one was quite intense and immensely impactful. Many people around me it seemed, as well as myself, could relate. Very powerful.

***"As a small school, we don't have a lot of funds so booking an act is always a gamble. In this case, it was absolutely money well spent. Iggy and Chad are easy-going, professional, and timely which makes working with them simple and stress free. Most importantly, the students found them engaging, entertaining, and relatable. We will most definitely be having them back, and I encourage anyone and everyone to book them if you are looking for a great blend of creativity, education, and entertainment."
