Spitfire is the creation of Michael Martin, Andrew Nadeau and Wenzler Powers; longtime comedy writers who are bringing their talents – as well as the talents of the best comics in the country – to the stage!
 

Spitfire is a stand-up comedy showcase held the last Thursday of every month at the legendary iO Theater. It’s an intimate, interactive show that’s all about hilarity. Fun. Community. Inclusiveness. And hot sauce. Tasty, tasty hot sauce.

Every show, 6 comics get 6 minutes each to perform their sets. They can buy up to 4 additional minutes by taking a shot of hot sauces that range from a “basically salsa” 1 minute sauce to an “I immediately regret this decision” 4 minute sauce. Our comics are so dedicated to their craft, doing a regular showcase wasn’t enough for them. So now for you, the audience, they challenge themselves to answer the age-old question: Can I remember my set when my tongue is on fire?
