After that miserable Monday, a comedy show is just what you need. Laugh off the fact that you made it through the first work-day of the week… and forget that there are four left.
The comedy show is a new addition to the sports bar’s weekly events, with its debut on March 7, 2016. Although new, the event is gaining quick popularity. By 8:00 p.m. there was only standing room available.
I graciously accepted a standing position after sitting at a desk all day and embraced the comedic relief. As typical with comedy, the jokes got a little dirty, so this wouldn’t be an event I would take my mom to.
John Paul Rivera is performing tonight. He first got into comedy when he was a kid and his mother did stand-up.
“It’s a lot of fun, it’s great to make people laugh, hang out with your friends, and have a good time, look at how much fun people are having right now!” said Rivera.
It’s true, I could barely hear Rivera over the belly laughs and chatty crowd. It was a welcomed change after sitting on a silent T ride with 100 people staring at their phones.
When asked what his favorite part was about performing, Rivera unsurprisingly made a joke…I think.
“Probably the free drinks that come my way,” said Rivera. “That’s a huge part of it.”
