Corey Rodrigues will be performing at Dick Doherty's Beantown Comedy Den along with John Romanoff and Matt D. in Boston on Friday, August 9th and Saturday, August 10th.
Corey Rodrigues has been touring for years, with much of his comedy coming from his personal life and those around him. He was the winner of the Catch a New Rising Star comedy competition, became semi-finalist in the New York Comedy Contest & Boston Comedy Festival and was a recent winner of New England's Funniest Comic.
"Growing up in Milton - a small suburb in Massachusetts - and spending a lot of time in the city at his family's barbershop businesses allowed Corey to bring a diverse voice to the stage. Since a very early age he's had the ability to impersonate many different voices. He often left family members in tears at gatherings. It wasn't rare for him to startle his childhood classmates by imitating a teacher or principal's voice in the hallways. Corey made a quick transition from class clown to professional headliner out his no holds barred training provided by Bostonís Improv Asylum. From there he became a part of his own short form improv troupe, Flaming Awesome. Referred to as funny, endearing, edgy, quick and exceptionally likable when he is on the stage, Corey owns the crowd."
Tickets are available through the Beantown Comedy website.

Bob Saget comes to The Wilbur Theatre
on Friday March 1st at 7pm. Saget, who has widely known as the all american nice guy, Danny Tanner, on the sitcom Full House, is actually a pretty risque comic, with a penchant for the dirty.... "I've always thought there was a time and a place for filth..." According to his website, the tone will be full of "filth and craziness." Will some of that make it into his stand-up act? See for yourself when he headlines at the Wilbur.
Rumor has it that Katy Perry (okay - maybe War Virgin's impersonation) will be in North End tonight, accompanying Paula Broadwell for her special performance: New War Virgin Comedy. This show has actually been quite the buzz event around town.
"If you want a hilarious, shocking, tell-all account of the Iraq invasion – the version they didn’t share on CNN – then watch the War Virgin perform in her monthly comedy series. Be regaled with true stories of her militarily influenced coming-of-age, starting with West Point – or what she fondly describes as the world’s biggest sausage fest. Then hear all about how the Iraq war ironically catalyzed her own sexual liberation, after being religiously repressed for her entire life."
I've spoken with a few people who have seen it, and they said it is absolutely hilarious. For only $12 it is completely worth it. If you love it so much that you have to see it a second time than you are in luck. She uses new material every month so if you can play the patience game you will be all set for a second round of laughs.
When: Wednesday, November 28, 2012, 7 – 9pm
Where: The Living Room - 101 Atlantic Ave, Boston, MA 02110
