On November 9 and 10, Surf City welcomes Eric Schwartz to the stage, who comes armed with his trusty guitar, affable banter, and satirical songs. Schwartz, who won first prize for comedic songwriting in the 2008 International Songwriting Competition, delves into politics, religion, and profanity-laden absurdity with uproariously raunchy ditties. Next, Jason Love intersperses stories about the difficulties of dating as a skinny guy and the perils of being labeled a metrosexual with one-line zingers. November 23 and 24 bring together two upbeat humorists from a pair of unusual backgrounds: the intensely energetic Gary Brightwell, who was an aerospace engineer before comedy slowly consumed his life; and Laura Hayden, who came to understand the benefits of laughter through a career as a physical therapist. Whereas Brightwell tends to discourse on the perks of his much-changed lifestyle, the boisterous Hayden often finds humor in the odder corners of America's relationship with health care.
