As head of the standup comedy program here at IB, I'm proud that ImprovBoston is the home of the Boston Comedy Arts Festival. And I'm excited that we're showcasing some of the best acts out there. It means a lot to the Team here that so many standup acts applied to take part in our comedy party. It's an all-encompassing, accessible cross section of amazing comedy right here in Cambridge.
Comics you shouldn't miss this week:
Friday, September 7th: You should head to the ImprovBoston Studio Theater to check out Guitler Raphael. He is straight up belly laughs. Trust me. He's one of Boston's best and you don't want to miss him. Also on that show is Suni Reyes (NYC) here doing her Burgers and Tostones show. Which do you want to laugh at? Burgers or Tostones? Be there and you'll laugh either way.
Saturday, September 8th: Get yourself to the Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square.
At 4PM, Joe Wong brings back his ALL CHINESE standup show that sold out last month at ImprovBoston. Joe has performed at the White House. He's also made several appearances on the Late Show With David Letterman and Ellen. He's one of the best joke writers in the game - in any language. (I'm told this show has just SOLD OUT!)
At 8PM, the Brattle hosts two other acts you've got to see. I saw Aaron Hertzog absolutely kill it at this past year's North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. He's insane. On that same bill is Victor Varnado who has been performing nationally for over 10 years. He won the Just For Laughs Competition in 2001 and he's been on Jimmy Kimmel, Conan and Comedy Central since. This show will not disappoint.
Sunday, September 9th: Check out the 9PM show at the ImprovBoston Main Theater. It's a standup showcase that is stacked with talent including Tom Keller, who represented North Carolina at this year's Great American Comedy Festival in Johnny Carson's hometown in Nebraska.
