Featured comic: Fort Wayne’s Julie Heckman

Fort Wayne comedian Julie Heckman is a 30-something mom, wife and small business owner whose family still calls her “Kid.”

Her sharp and witty comedy could be described as tastefully vulgar, like reading a classic novel, but with f-bombs. Self deprecating, honest, insightful and at times goofy, Julie is happiest when making people laugh.

She will be in the Momics! comedy show on April 1 at the Aloft Louisville Downtown where all the comics are moms. Tickets ($10 per person or $30 for a table that seats up to four) are available here.

Julie also can be seen emceeing at the Fort Wayne Comedy Club and has performed in the MMJ Comedy Festival in 2018 and 2019, as well as the Live Laughs Festival in 2018 and 2019.

Julie also produces a podcast called “Is This A Bit?” where she features different friends and comedians each week to tell true funny stories.

Comedians & friends tell true life funny stories, and see if they are good enough to become bits.

She can be found on Instagram @julieheckmancomedy or on Twitter @julieheckman

You can also make a monetary donation at sianimalrescue.org.

Alex Reymundo

Tickets are available here. Or call the Caravan at (502) 459-0022 .

Alex and his brother-in-law, comedian Ron White, are also founders of Number Juan Tequila. So Alex also has a special Number Juan Tequila drink planned — the Lemmy-nade.

Louisville Laughs on WAVE Country with Dawne Gee

Comedians Melissa Doran, Marie Griffith and Creig Ewing appeared on WAVE Country with Dawne Gee on Tuesday, March 16, ahead of their show on Thursday at The Aloft Louisville Downtown.

Tickets for the show are $30 for a table that seats up to four and $10 general admission and are available here. Special guests Alex Whittenburg and Jake Hovis also are scheduled to appear.

Featured Louisville area comic: Marie Griffith (Ms. Westend Pookie)

Marnita Marie Griffith was named after her grandmothers Juanita and Martha, and it was the only time they agreed on anything.

Figuring that Marnita is a little complicated. she goes by Marie Griffith at work and Ms. Westend Pookie at what she loves — comedy.

She will be performing with Louisville Laughs on the Thursday Comedy Night March 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Aloft Louisville Downtown along with headliner Melissa Doran. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $30 for a reserved table that seats up to four and are available here.

Marie considers herself a motivational comedian and strongly believes that laughter cures — even if it’s just for an hour. She has practiced this method on family with mental illness and in the darkest part of West Louisville.

“I’ve seen an infectious laugh trump sadness and the feeling I got was electrifying,” she said. “That’s how I knew comedy was for me.”

Though she was named most humorous in high school (Pleasure ridge Park class of ’97), she didn’t perform comedy on stage until about 10 years ago when her comedian brother Demetrius Wheeler brought her up the first time.

Marnita Marie Griffith was named Most Humorous at PRP in 1997.

Selling out her first show confirmed comedy was for this “mother of two and master of none.”

“From churches to after-hours spots, jails and nursing homes, comedy is welcomed everywhere,” she said.

Even Aliquippa, Pa.

“It was my very first time performing outside the tri-state area,” she said, “and I didn’t even know this place existed!”

Her “limo” to the show provided by Demetrius “Meech Dog” Wheeler was an old hearse.

“My name is Westend Pookie I got that name from moving a lot as a child … only in the west end, though.

We moved so much that we bought furniture with wheels on it. You call it a dining room table. We call it meals on Wheels.”

Marie Griffith


Marie counts Moms Mabley, Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx as inspiration and entertainers who take it to another level.

“I hope one day I’m added to those names, she said. “These are the ones that have my upmost respect for.

“My upbringing and having thick skin prepared me for this journey, however long it takes. “I promise to do what makes me happy. And you’re welcome to follow along for laughs, too.”

5 questions with comedian Melissa Doran

Melissa Doran is one of the most popular and successful comics in the Louisville scene. She will be headlining a comedy show March 18 at Aloft Louisville Downtown.

Melissa recently took the time to answer some questions from Creig Ewing.

What has it been like doing comedy during Covid?

Comedy during covid has been pretty much non-existent. Because shows are so few and far between for such long stretches of time it is a challenge to do well every time you get on stage. 

But it also reinvigorated me.

I realized how much I love this thing to do it and do so poorly again. I really connect with what you must go through when you perform Creig. 

You recently moved to Louisville. How’s that going?

I recently moved to Louisville with my now fiance after not living with a man for almost 14 years. I made sure we lived on the 11th floor so I always have an out.

I was living in southern Indiana before this so I feel like I’m basically living in the epicenter of culture and diversity. Comparatively. 

How would you describe your comedy?

Wow. These questions are super compelling. On that note I’d say my comedy is sarcastic. I try to be authentic but I also like the classic art of writing  jokes.

My favorite thing about stand-up is connecting with the audience. I like to feel like we’re hanging out, having a drink and forgetting our bullshit for a night. 

What jokes of yours do people remember best?

I do a Derby joke that is always very popular in Louisville for obvious reasons. I also slam on southern Indiana pretty hard, which Louisville also seems to like.

If you’ve ever been there that is also for obvious reasons. 

West End Pookie is also on the show March 18. What is her comedy like?

The times I’ve seen West End Pookie she’s always been clever and extremely authentic. She doesn’t hold back and her energy is electric.

She’ll make you laugh just with her presence. That’s the sign of a truly good comedian.

Tickets for the Thursday Comedy Night show from Louisville Laughs are $10 or $30 for a reserved table that seats up to four. Tickets are available here.

Creig Ewing to host Caravan open mic March 10 with guest James Ferguson

Creig Ewing will host the open mic Wednesday, March 10, at The Caravan Comedy Club with special guest James Ferguson.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and doors open at 6:30. Tickets are $5 and masks are required.
