Which Lindbergh High School grad recently appeared on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson?
If you said Brooks McBeth, you're a winner.
This Renton native and 1991 Lindbergh grad is back in town and slated to hit The Local 907 with a comedy show custom-tailored to his Renton roots.
Brooks' resume includes the Seattle sketch television show "Almost Live" and writing for Mad TV. Joining Brooks at The Local is the legendary host of "Almost Live," John Keister.
Yes, "Almost Live," the local sketch comedy show that poked fun at Seattle-area neighborhoods, including Renton, from 1984-1999.
"The fact that (Keister) will be performing in the city he used to make fun of," is just one more reason Wednesday's show is sure to rock the house, said Terrence Vaccaro, a co-owner of The Local.
Brooks is in town to work with "Almost Live" alumni Keister and Pat Cashman to work on their new show, "The (206)."
"I'm thrilled to be back in town," McBeth said of Renton, which he describes as a "wonderfully peculiar place."
When asked why he chose to perform at The Local, McBeth said he's a huge fan of the owners and the feel they've created at The Local.
"I think it's a great place," he said. "It's one of the businesses I'd love to see flourish in Renton and anything I can do to help them is my pleasure."
