JT Habersaat and the Altercation Punk Comedy Tour will embark on a 7K mile tour this fall stopping in Buffalo with some of the comedy scene’s fastest rising underground stars including Jay Whitecotton, Junior Stapoka and Buffalo’s own Kristen Becker.
Presented by Doug Stanhope’s Celebrity Death Pool and New Noise Magazine Stand Up! Records.
JT Habersaat: JT has become known as one of the hardest working underground comics in the nation. He has performed on a slew of gigantic festivals including Fun Fun Fun Fest Texas, Vans Warped Tour, Akumal Comedy Festival Mexico, The Fest Gainesville and many, many more. JT has appeared on Comedy Central’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade, acted opposite porn legend Ron Jeremy in Troma’s Toxic Avenger 4, and provided direct support for Brian Posehn, Jeanine Garofalo, Andy Dick, Rob Riggle, Kyle Kinane, Joe Sib and even Black Flag’s Henry Rollins. JT has co-headlined the comedy at Las Vegas Punk Rock Bowling Festival since 2011, and has performed on the 2013/2014 Doug Stanhope Superbowl Comedy Kickoff in Bisbee, AZ (hosted by Doug).
Junior Stopka is a stand-up comedian. He has been performing, many times sad and drunk, since 2005 in his hometown of Chicago, IL. The Chicago Tribune recommended Stopka as one of the top four comedians to watch. Doug Stanhope invited him to join him on the tours, The Big Stink Comedy Tour & The Shit Town Comedy Tour. “Stopka looks like a retard and a retard had a baby” said Stanhope. He has performed in the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and will make his television debut on Comedy Central’s “Comedy Underground with Dave Attell”
Jay Whitecotton: Handpicked by Habersaat, Whitecotton is one of the most uncompromising and hilarious comics in the scene. His credits include Hell Yes! Comedy Fest New Orleans, Cape Fear Comedy Festival North Carolina, and numerous comedy clubs across the country. He is a current finalist in the 2014 Austin’s Funniest Person Contest as of this bio, and is head booking agent for San Antonio’s Blind Tiger Comedy Club.
Kristen Becker: For more than ten years, Becker has loved bringing her raucous point-of-view comedy to audiences all over the continent. Toronto’s Xtra! lauded her “brash and personal humor.” As the winner of the Queen City Comedy Competition, she took the largely male-dominated genre by storm. The Artvoice paper in her hometown of Buffalo, known for its flourishing and dynamic comedy scene, named her the city’s Best Stand-up Comic four years running.
