Last night we finally got a chance to check out the popular “Chicks are Funny” series curated by Anna Phillips. The good news, a few hundred packed the Funny Bone on a cold winter Wednesday; the bad news, the visiting Canadian comics were definitely funnier…just joking.
Overall, the production served up a hardy dose of laughter.

We figure it’s not a matter if Syracuse should host a comedy festival, but when. With the plethora of ‘Cuse-bred comics and the draw of Funny Bone at Destiny USA, this town is primed for a few days of non-stop laughs (especially during the winter months). If we can have a film festival and TED conference surely we can kick-off a comprehensive comedy program.
In the meantime, special shout-out to Dan Frigolette and Moody McCarthy for coming home each year to do shows. Last night they did an intimate, one-night-only comedy cabaret at Justin’s Grill. This year they brought Nick Marra with them (a few years ago it was Jessimae Peluso).
We saw an article this week about the renovation and scheduled re-opening of the Hotel Syracuse.
