Jokers Wild Comedy Club’s stage showcases comics drawn from both the national touring circuit and the local scene as they hurl laugh-igniting jokes into the eager ears of audiences. Upcoming comics include Cal Verduchi (March 9–10), a Comedy Central veteran who specializes in uproariously raunchy impressions of celebrities ranging from Ozzy Osbourne to Kermit the Frog. Known for his appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and MTV’s 1/2 Hour Comedy Hour, Joel Lindley (March 16–17) wields and old-school deadpan demeanor to deliver self-deprecating stories and curmudgeonly one-liners. Richie Byrne (March 23–24) melds his experience on VH1 and The Rosie O’Donnell show with a successful acting career—including stints on Sex and the City and The Sopranos —to dominate the stage, drawing audiences into exquisitely detailed stories with engaging physicality and sonic mimicry.
Hungry patrons can flip open the club’s menu, browsing through a lineup of delectable hors d’oeuvres and filling entrees. The Joker’s 3 Way sampler ($15) eliminates crippling indecision with a trio of helpings chosen from potato skins, fried mozzarella, quesadillas, chicken tenders, and wings, and a cheeseburger ($8) offers a hearty meal.
