So all this snow can get pretty depressing. I know I’m sick of looking at, driving through it, and watching it turn into a golden Worcester brown. We all are. You know what would cheer you up? Some Fung Wa bus jokes. Those are always good. Or how about a Worcester Public School teacher telling hilarious anecdotes about the lack of training teachers have when it comes to breaking up girl fights when boobies pop out? Because I have good news for you – Comedy Fest Worcester is coming to the Palladium on Saturday February 28, and it’s gonna be hilarious.
First of all, it’s gonna be nostalgic being there. If you were a teenager in the 90’s then it’s gonna take you for a trip down memory lane. Because there is nary a 90’s teenager who didn’t get wasted, go down to the Palladium on a Sunday night before a holiday, and do a little bump and grind/make out session with some stranger who didn’t love you. If you were smart like me you did a little prep work beforehand – go on AOL and message random girls, “asl?” If you got a response the next logical question was always “n e pics?” Then finally, “going 2 palladium?’, before your stupid sister picked up the phone and kicked you off the Internet.
Look, we’ve all seen shitty comedians before. If you’ve ever been on a Carnival Cruise then you understand just how bad some stand up comics can be. The worst part is on those things you’re stuck with them until you get to port. There’s literally no escaping their dooshnozzelry.
So finding a good stand up comic can be hard to come by. But finding the rare combination of nationally known comedians, Boston legends, local stand-ups, and guys who had hilarious one-liners in Me, Myself and Irene, and Seinfeld, is borderline unheard of. That’s what makes this upcoming show so cool. You’ve got the combination of nationally known comedians from the Worcester area teaming up with local up-and-comers. So when they make it big in a couple years you can be the cool hipster who says, “Hey I’ve been following him since before he was big.” It’s like being a Turtleboy Sports reader before Busgate. Here’s the lineup:
Oh yea, and by the way, one of the comics is a Turtleboy Sports blogger. Is it the construction worker who wouldn’t dig up George Costanza’s Phil Rizzuto key chain? Former star of the Hilman Morning Show? That hilarious guy who hangs out with Dennis Leary? Could be any of them. But yea, I’d definitely recommend going, and it’s for a good cause too – capitalism. You can purchase tickets right here.
Look, you’ve been caged inside your house for months now. The wife is antsy to go out and do something. This counts as a date!! And laughing at edgy humor sure beats going to see Fifty Shades of Grey doesn’t it? The best part is at the end of the show she’s not expecting you to come home, tie her up, and treat her like a hooker. It’s a win-win for all parties involved.
Here’s a couple clips of former South High teacher Orlando Baxter and one of my personal favorites Steve Sweeney – Jim Carey’s neighbor whose dog always took shits on his lawn. See you on Saturday.
Hot takes. See you down there Saturday, February 28.
