I read this article in shedoesthecity.com about JokeBox lounge producer (and good friend) Deanna Palazzo and couldn’t help but give it a re-post. It feels good to read great things about ladies who work freakin’ hard in this business and to hear about the good things they’ve got coming up.

“Jokebox Comedy Lounge brings an inclusive night of laughs to Comedy Bar on Mondays. Producer Deanna Palazzo tells us what it’s all about…”
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!
