Three Cheerwines for April Richardson


April Richardson is prepared to blow your mind this weekend. 

And she’s not kidding. For her NCCAF premier routine, fans can anticipate stories about “a documentary she watched about people who have sex with horses, about that time her mom said that crazy thing about her ex-boyfriend and how she almost got straight-up murdered on the way to see Morrissey for the 90th time,” in the words of Richardson.

The Atlanta native and current Los Angeles resident said she is “very excited that I actually get to tell crazy stories into a microphone as part of my job. I feel so lucky and so jazzed to do it. So, I hope people find joy in my, uh, joy.”

Richardson has performed at Comedy Death-Ray, Portland’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Seattle’s Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival and San Francisco Sketchfest. Now, she is bringing her talents down to South Beach. Er, to the NCCAF.

When she’s not performing at comedy fests, she can be seen as a round table panelist on E!’s Chelsea Lately. She has also written for MTV.

If you want to get on her good side, bring her Cheerwine. It’s her favorite soda and she’s looking forward to reuniting with it when she visits NC.   

April will perform this Friday, 2/1 and Saturday, 2/2 at DSI.
