Out of the many comedy productions put on through Seattle, one really stands out: “The Doppelgänger Show” at the Comedy Underground. Doppelgänger is defined as “an apparition or double of a living person.” Producers Nam Huynh and Jeremy Horn create a comedic spin on this concept. Six comedians are chosen for each show, and perform their best five minutes. The comedians are paired up and perform each others’ set. The show is unique as it allows both audience members and comedians to see the jokes in a new light. Comedians can make fun of each other better than anyone else. This show highlights this talent–allowing the audience to become part of an inside joke. “The Doppelgänger Show” allows the audience to join in on the triumphs and oddities of the comedians set.

This month’s show will be held on Sunday, August 17 at the Comedy Underground from 8:30 to 10 pm.

Mitch Mitchell, Daniel Gray, Billy Anderson, Mike Coletta, Evan Bowen and Nick Sahoyah are all scheduled to perform.
