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.

The evening was hosted by Pamela Wertz. The headliner was North America’s funniest nurse, Zabrina Chevannes.

Value of History by Sifsound on Mixcloud

Here’s a comment by Greg Tripoli about the value of history to propel us forward in 2015.

Calling all comics

Comedy vet Moody McCarthy at Justin's Tuscan Grill.

Big M: Comedy vet and Syracuse-native Moody McCarthy provided some comic relief for New Year’s Day at Justin’s Tuscan Grill.

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).
