Misery dissipates as buoyant clouds of laughter shower the denizens of Sarcasm Comedy Club, a humor hub hosting two Saturday-night shows per week that spotlight local and national headlining comedians. Commandeered by WIP radio personality Steve Trevelise, who honed his chops emceeing at the esteemed Catch a Rising Star, Sarcasm keeps its calendar stocked with fortifying rations of funny.
Ladies of Laughter champion and long-running Comedy Central act Chris Rich takes the stage on November 17 to share her opinions about television psychologists and superstitious sports fans, backed up by Dave “The Hammer” Schultz, whose two Stanley Cup wins with the Flyers and still-standing NHL record for penalty minutes in a season promise a steady stream of laughter and emotional lessons. On November 24, laughs are rallied and tallied at the Sarcasm Comedy Competition, where 10 up-and-comers duel to the delight of audiences and judges by lobbing up five-minute sets. Headliner Geno Bisconte breaks up the evening with thoughts on the state of political correctness, taking off-key swipes at every creed he can find.

“This ‘PC’ world has never been more ready for Sarcasm,” exclaims Sarcasm Comedy Club founder Steve Trevelise. The WIP radio personality and veteran comedian, who honed his emceeing and managerial chops at the esteemed Catch a Rising Star, believes that “the comedy stage is the last place for freedom of speech.” Although some shows are rated PG and some are hard Rs, Sarcasm Comedy Club refuses to sanitize its performers for sensitive ears. For those who can take a joke, the uncensored humor hub’s calendar offers two Saturday-night shows per week that spotlight local cutups and national headliners. Those who dream of becoming comedians themselves can enlist in the Sarcasm Comedy School, in which they’ll learn the craft of standup, including joke writing, audience mining, and how to make your own heckler spray.
