FUSE Comedy and Art Festival presents inaugural event this weekend

A new comedy festival is making its debut in downtown Dayton this weekend. The FUSE Comedy and Art Festival is a multi-day event showcasing comedy and visual art from around the region, presenting many curators and comedic voices across Dayton's Oregon District. Festival co-presenter and local comedian Luke Capasso stopped by WYSO's studio to speak with Excursions host Evan Miller about the festival, its roots in British comedy festival formatting, and what to expect this weekend.

The FUSE Comedy and Art Festival 2021 is happening this Friday December 3rd through Sunday December 5th, across multiple venues in downtown Dayton including Wiley's Comedy Club, Yellow Cab Tavern, and Toxic Brew Co. More details can be found at Eventbrite.com.

Evan Miller is a percussionist, lover of sound, and is probably buying too many cassette tapes online right now. Evan got his start in radio in 2012 at WWSU at Wright State University, where he was studying percussion performance. He followed through with both endeavors and eventually landed a lucrative dual career playing experimental music at home and abroad, and broadcasting those sounds to unsuspecting listeners Sunday nights on The Outside. Maintaining a connection to normal music, Evan also plays drums in bands around the area, and hosts WYSO's Midday Music show. When not doing something music-related, Evan is most likely listening to podcasts or watching food videos at home with his cat.
