29- James Nghiem and His Fairy Tales

What's that? There's a live storytelling comedy show happening every month? Indeed there is. In today's episode, comedian James Nghiem talks all about his show "Nghiem's Fairy Tales", doing standup in okc, and his time opening for Maria Bamford. 

Nghiem tackles the everyday and the almost-never with sharp wit. Filled with non sequitur logic, the seemingly random events that comprise his act portray the world in a very unique light. A staple of the Oklahoma comedy scene, Nghiem has produced showcases and open mics under the moniker Robot Saves City. In 2010 Nghiem turned Robot Saves City into a local digital-release comedy label in hopes of showcasing the state’s burgeoning comedic talent. Since it’s creation, Robot Saves City has worked directly with Pandora and Rooftop Comedy in an effort to reach new audiences. The Loony Bin Comedy Club named Nghiem “Funniest Comedian in OKC” in 2013. On a local level, he’s opened for Tig Notaro, Todd Barry and Maria Bamford.
