This week I’ll be appearing in a Christmas variety show called “Christmastime In The City” at the Whitney Center for the Performing Arts in Pittsfield, MA. The show is being produced by the Pittsfield Town Players and it’s about 90% music with some spoken word and then my comedy bits. I took the show on as a challenge to write 5+ minutes of clean Christmas-themed jokes as that is almost the complete opposite of what my material and approach normally is.
I will be in the Friday and Sunday editions of the show and I believe Friday is already sold out. More info HERE.
Saturday, December 13th, I’m very happy to be featuring at MASS MoCA’s comedy show with headliner Hari Kondabolu who was a big part of FX’s “Totally Biased with Kamau Bell” (one of my favorite shows) as well as being on Letterman and several other late night shows. I just got to work with Hari’s friend, Aparna Nancherla, a couple weeks ago at the Proctors Theatre, so this has been a really good few weeks for me. It’s also my first time performing at MASS MoCA which has plenty of facilities to have regular comedy but they haven’t been able to pull it off. I think there’s only been about 4 independent comedy shows there in the past 10-12 years or so. Maybe this will get them back to thinking about this happening with more regularity. For more details on the show, please check out the information HERE and tell your friends.
