After 8 years of touring nationally, comedian Brandie Posey’s first album Opinion Cave dominated the charts at #1 on iTunes & #12 on Billboard when it was released last month. Opinion Cave showcases why Brandie has been described as a “Riot Grrl on Acid” – Posey is a fearless, energetic & hilarious powerhouse comedian for the ages. Her debut album is the world’s first look at what the underground Los Angeles comedy scene has already known for years – and this summer she plans on touring extensively in promotion of it.
Brandie’s fierce style is trumped only be her fierce wit. The recording of Opinion Cave was listed in ComedyCake.com’s Most Memorable Stand Up Comedy Moments of 2015.
“Huddled in the back of comic shop in Ventura about an hour north of Los Angeles, punk rock comedian Brandie Posey proceeded to make magic while she recorded her debut comedy album. ..Posey’s stories are equally an intimate affair and a pure riot. Being there I felt like I was in on one of the raddest secrets in comedy, but I know that even more people will know Brandie Posey soon enough when the album drops in 2016. I can’t wait to re-live it.” – Comedycake.com
Brandie has been featured at every major comedy festival in the United States, including Bridgetown, SF Sketchfest, RIOT LA & FEST in Gainesville. She is also honored to have opened for Maria Bamford, Dana Gould, Beth Stelling &
legendary punk band Against Me!
Brandie also co-hosts the wildly popular podcast, Lady to Lady, with rabid
listeners all over the country. BUST Magazine recently said their Margaret Cho episode was “the funniest podcast episode ever”. With thousands of diehard fans, Lady to Lady has made a name for itself as a must listen show for men & women alike. Entertainment Weekly described Lady to Lady as “the best adult sleepover” and RE:Com Magazine called Lady to Lady “an overgrown, smart ass Babysitter’s Club”.
Brandie Posey is now & will always be a ska kid, lives in a double wide mobile home in LA & tours nationally in a Scion xD with a mural of Abe Lincoln fighting a T Rex in space painted on the side of it.
