Rusty Rutherford’s twisted comedy has "More Energy Than A High School Cheer Squad" (Montreal Fringe Festival). You'll question if Rusty is sane one minute with his dark, offbeat humor, then question if he's a "Comedic Genius" (Rusty's mom) the next when he seems to incorporate every member of the audience into an on-the-spot freestyle rap. Rutherford was recently voted 2nd best Albuquerque comedian in the Weekly Alibi's "Best of Burque'."  His comedic journey has taken him to venues of all shapes and sizes across America and Canada and has even landed him a spot on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Rutherford graduated from the University of New Mexico where he studied Theatre, Media Arts, Psychology, and Communication and has been member of Blackout Theatre Company and Eat, Drink and be Larry sketch comedy troupe. He has trained with Tricklock Theatre in Albuquerque, NM and The Annoyance Theatre in Chicago, IL. Whatever you expect, throw it out the window and expect the unexpected in what can only be described as structured insanity.

Featuring- ZACH ABEYTA

Zach (Bboy Felto) Abeyta is a local Bboy and Comedian from Albuquerque New Mexico. He has been breakin' for seven years and represents the Flava Pheenz Crew est. 2011. With emphasis on expression, his non-traditional dance style blends emphatic movement and energy to the rhythm of the music.  


Straight from the cypher to the stage, Zach also performs stand-up comedy, and can be seen regularly at comedy shows around town. His comedy style is just as expressive as his dance moves, mixing creative wording with heavy physicality. Look out for a chance to watch him perform around town.

The creator and long-time emcee of Albuquerque's prolific Vagrant Variety, she has also been featured in Anarkomedy, Tourettes Without Regrets, Meow Wolf's LULZ Comedy Showcase, and Tricklock's Reptilian Lounge. Local IQ's Kelsie Soward writes "Even though she looks sweet, don’t be fooled. Gora has some of the funniest standup material, delivered in a predominantly male environment.". She has opened for Dave Ross and Cameron Esposito. She lives in Albuquerque, NM with her dead mother and blind dog where you can see her performing around town.
