For 32 years, comics such as Jay Leno, Ray Romano, and Kevin James have kick-started their careers on the stages of Comedy Cabaret, tucked inside a pair of cozy restaurants. A trio of vaudevillian jokesters descend on Casa Carollo on May 5. The Legendary Wid juggles a barrage of stuffed animals, lawn decorations, and lamps to illustrate his offbeat sense of humor. Sharing the stage, comic actor John Kensil spreads Vegas-style suavity, and Danny B sets his japery to music.
On May 18, Poco’s Restaurant welcomes Taylor Mason. The comic, ventriloquist, and children’s TV host gamely shares the spotlight with adorable piglets and other plush dummies in an act adult enough to appear on NBC’s Last Comic Standing but clean enough for families with young grandmothers.
Alternatively, take steps toward the stage yourself during an Intro to Comedy seminar led by standup vet Pat O’Donnell. O’Donnell is backed by years of writing and delivering TV one-liners and monologues on growing up Catholic, raising kids, and current events, material that snagged him a $10,000 prize on America’s Funniest People. His students learn tricks for everything from developing material to booking shows to handling a microphone, whether they want to break into the business right away or simply figure out why no one’s ever actually at the door when someone says “knock-knock.”
