There’s always been a bit of a challenge getting people to show up to the Comedy Bar on a regular Monday evening. But for The JokeBox Comedy Lounge, by Impulsive Entertainment, produced by Deanna Palazzo and James Dalzell, it’s: “Challenge Accepted!”
Every Monday, the JokeBox Comedy Lounge plays host to a variety of comedy performances. I attended last night, and there was a good mix of some stand-up, both booked and lotterized, improv and sketch comedy to entertain all the senses. And, despite an off-night for the Comedy Bar’s famous mac n’ cheese, I’d say it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The night kicked off with host and noted bartender/IT Asian, Jim Kim, who always brings forth funny observations – in this case, about the Olympics and his mixed feelings towards attractive athletes, both male and female. After which, the line-up consisted of:
- Jordan Foisy (Stand-Up Lottery Spot)
- The Winston Zeddesmores (Improv)
- Natalie Norman (Stand-Up)
- The Reception (Sketch)
- Mischa Cheeseman (Stand-Up Lottery Spot)
- Ron Josol (Stand-Up)
- Good Game (Musical Sketch)
It was a good mix – I’d never seen Ron Josol perform before, but he was really great! He was just home from Just For Laughs and was certainly still on his festival-game because he was hilarious! And the headliners, Good Game, with their mix of deadpan musical comedy, were a real treat to finish the night up!
All in all, you can’t go wrong for such a variety of talented comics for $5 on a Monday. Get off your butts and check this show out!
