This weekend, celebrate the fact that it’s finally not snowing and miserable outside and treat yourself to a night out on the town with some of the best and most entertaining live comedy around New England. This weekend, there’s sure to be something for everyone. In fact, here are three amazingly fun things you can do this weekend here in Boston:
On Friday, February 21 and Saturday, February 22, Dick Doherty’s Beantown Comedy Den will feature the comedic stylings of Joe Larson, along with John Romanoff and Al Park. Larson, a Seattle, Washington native, was once named the College Comedian of the Year at the prestigious Las Vegas Comedy Festival and made his television debut on the Spanish channel (despite not speaking a lick of Spanish). He has performed throughout the country, including the Stardust in Las Vegas and Pasadena, California’s The Icehouse. Heck, he’s even shared a stage with Tony Danza himself. Who’s the boss now, huh? Tickets for this 8:00 p.m. show are only $20 and can be purchased online. Dick Doherty’s Comedy Den is located at 184 High Street in Boston, below Howl at the Moon.
Over at Nick’s Comedy Stop (100 Warrenton Street, Boston), the “King of the 80’s” himself, Danny Kelly, headlines on Friday, February 21 at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, February 22 at 8:00 p.m. Kelly, who has been performing since 1995, has opened for such comedic talents as Andrew “Dice” Clay, Howie Mandel, Jim Norton, Craig Gass, and Greg Fitzsimmons and has been a staple at LA’s The Comedy Store and New York’s Carolines. Tickets for both shows are $20 and can be purchased through Nick’s website.
Also on Friday and Saturday, LaughBoston is thrilled to present headliner Michael Che with special guests Jared Freid and Kofi Thomas. Che, who is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after talents, was named one of Rolling Stone’s 50 Funniest People last year and also served as a guest writer for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live”. He’s also performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Montreal Comedy Festival, Comedy Central’s South Beach Comedy Festival as well as Bonnaroo. Tickets for these shows are $25 and can be purchased at the LaughBoston box office. LaughBoston is located at 425 Summer Street in Boston.
There you have it, folks – you officially no longer have the excuse of ‘there’s nothing to do’ to keep you huddled inside this weekend. Get out and enjoy some much-needed laughs by taking in some live stand-up!
