Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one ticket to the 9-1-Fun! Comedy Event with Billy Bingo and New York's Bravest on Friday, September 24, at 8 p.m. at Trinity on Main in New Britain (up to a $25 value).
Billy Bingo, born in Brooklyn and raised in Queens, spent more than 20 years battling fierce flames in the NYFD and has made numerous television and stage appearances during his career as a stand-up comic. Billy will be joined by three New York firefighters—Ed Sullivan, Steve Alleva, and Kevin Seaman—whose bravery is matched only by their impeccable comedic timing. Retired NYPD sergeant Gina Scarda of the famed Italian Chicks of Comedy will also take the stage, eliciting hearty chuckles, bellows, and possibly a few guffaws.
Ticketholders will enjoy a night of comedy, drinks, refreshments, and prizes. The picturesque interior of Trinity-on-Main features soaring, wood-paneled ceilings, immaculate stained glass, and excellent views from nearly every seat in the house. The night's uproarious laughter will fill the space and freak out nearby birds.
