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!

See previous updates after the jump!


Mark your calendars for Friday, January 22nd at 9pm!

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


…as a follow up, the only one not worth seeing is John Moses. dude was awful.

In my opinion, Ali Wong was the funniest


I was there too..had a great time…having it at the monroe center was actually kind of cool…shady at first, but cool.


Anyone know if they will be having a show this Sat?
