After seeing Angela perform killer stand-up, I approached her about being part of my "switched-up" storytelling series, No, YOU Tell It! (noyoutellit.com). Our show hinges on the storytellers not only being talented writers and performers but also their ability to be generous with their time and spirit. We spend about a month developing the personal stories of all involved on the page before they flip scripts and perform each other's true-life tales on stage. Angela was the ultimate professional throughout the process, she shared keen insights during the story workshop meetings with the full group, plus put everyone at ease with her quick wit and kind spirit. Her story turned out fabulous, as she didn't shy away from the challenge of revision and ran toward the group's suggestion to be more vulnerable. In turn, she rocked the performance of her partner's story during the show. She made the story her own but also took care to honor the emotional core of her partner's experience. I am so happy that I discovered Angela and invited her to be part of the No, YOU Tell It! family. I would be thrilled to work with her any time!
I am so happy to write this deliriously positive review for comedian Angela Cobb, whom I have known for almost ten years. I have booked her for countless comedy gigs, including a recent "Statement Arts" fundraiser. I've also booked her for several hospital shows like one at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Angela is extremely versatile. She can emcee a show, or headline, or anything in between. She is also an extremely talented writer and performer and one of the rising stars in the New York City comedy scene. I recommend her without hesitation. Book her now before she moves to L.A. and gets her own TV show!
My company is Franco's Comedy For Your Cause. I booked Angela to headline one of our fundraisers. First off Angela arrived early and well dressed. That's important to me as my shows are my resume to book additional shows and it's the sign of a true Pro. On stage she capatavited the audience for the full 45 minutes, weaving from material to crowd work and back to material with ease. Angela
is well written clever and Very funny. Being on stage is like being home for Angela she's very confortable and very one on one. We will be reaching out to her again for sure.
Angela is my favorite comic I’ve ever seen. I’ve been a comedian for 3 years and so I’ve seen a lot of different acts, including many pros and touring comics. I booked her to headline a recent show in Rhinebeck, NY and she had me cackling. Her ability to read the audience and play with Them really separates her from the pack. She has a quick wit and a quicker tongue and I truly look forward to seeing her again.
I had the great pleasure of running sound for Angela as she headlined Off-Key Comedy Night last month on Long Island I was absolutely not disappointed. For 45 minutes she kept the audience engaged and thoroughly entertained with her unique brand of side-splitting humor. She is a fireball and absolutely a must-see!!!!!
Had Angela performed as one of my feature comics on my opening night show for charity. Angela worked the room like a true professional and had the crowd in stitches. Would book her anytime! OUTSTANDING!
I hired Angela last year for a difficult room - comedy show at a noisy bar that the audience didn't know was happening. Pretty much a nightmare show, but Angela came in and commanded the room, converted them, and everyone left with a smile on their face! She's professional, funny and talented - hard to ask for much more!
Angela is an amazing comic with a fantastic eye for the little things that all make us tick. I was very lucky to interview her for a documentary film I was making on virginity. She has one of my favorite interviews in the whole film and gave me fantastic advice. I'd love to work with her again if I get the chance.
I hired Angela to feature on a Valentine's Day show in Boston, She was so funny and so original, The audience loved her and took photos with them after the show, I will definitely hire her again .
I recently booked Angela to headline a large show at Off Key Tikki in Patchogue. Angela had the crowd delighted from the beginning with her astute and playful crowd work. As her set went on, she weaved effortlessly in and out of material, crafting a performance that was equally spontaneous and structured. Her material and delivery were perfect for the crowd, they were in her grasp for the entire 45 minutes. Angela was also clean without it seeming like she was being G-rated; even when she's not being puritanical, Cobb is excellent at talking about anything in a way that is adult yet not vulgar. In addition to her outstanding, house-rocking performance, Angela was also a professional in every sense of the word. She promoted the show, was communicative, accommodating, and punctual and she stayed after the gig to meet the audience who were so enamored with her performance. I would recommend Angela to headline any show, any size, any venue, any time- she is a STAR and a blessing to have!
I recently saw Angela at Off Key Tikki in Patchogue and she was amazing!!! She had the audience from the start. She was extremely funny and quick witted and able to read the crowd and keep them laughing for 45 mins and she could have continued even longer!!! Don't miss the chance to see her!!!
I have had the pleasure of working with Angela on several occassions as performers and as a producer. Angela is a delight, she is funny and easy to like, her material is smart as well as relatable. I would not hesitate to book her again. There are several folks who have attended shows involving Angela who still keep in touch with her, they loved her and enjoyed her performance.
