Video: Live Comedy at Monroe Center

1/29/2010 Update:

BYOB Comedy Night a great idea!

In a rare appearance to one of the thousands of events I’ve promoted here on Hoboken411, I shot a couple video clips of the first few comics at last Friday’s Live Comedy Night at the Monroe Center. You know, the BYOB one!

I believe this event was definitely a by-product of our economy, and the first I ever heard of. Most comedy shows are at a bar or restaurant, and you’re stuck paying exorbitant prices for the booze. One thing that I found interesting at this show – was that many were not from Hoboken (but saw it on 411!), the age of the crowd (mostly around 25 or so), plus the alcohol of choice – which were cases of Miller Light mostly! I felt a little odd with my bottle of red wine!!

You should check out Rich Shultis the next time he’s in Hoboken (at around 1:10) – funny guy!

Sad that he had to poke fun at the Monroe Center so much. But it’s true, that place stinks!

In my opinion, Ali Wong was the funniest
