Staff Pick


  • Screen grab/YouTube

Ryan Schutt is easily bothered. The New York-based, NBA-obsessed comedian has built a reputation on being bothered and the many things that bother him as well as sticking up for the unsung heroes of nature documentaries. A frequent performer at international comedy festivals with his brand of relatable, complaint-centric stand up, sketch, and improv, Schutt has opened for the likes of Dave Attell, Tiffany Haddish, and Michelle Wolf. Johanna Medranda and Bart Dangus are also on the bill.

Ryan Schutt will perform with Johanna Medranda and Bart Dangus starting at 9 p.m. on Friday, March 1 at the Independent Comedy Club at Planet Ant; 2320 Caniff Ave., Hamtramck; 313-365-4948;; Tickets are $10.
