Comedy and Chill

The Comedy & Chill series at Dolce Vita has provided some much needed stability as the Midtown neighborhood undergoes another massive transition. Liberty Deli and the Crogan Building were recently demolished to make way for more student housing. Pictured here areĀ comics James Fedkiw, Kelsey Claire Hagen, Abdulkadir Hadi, and organizer John Leonard Bellavia. Hopefully, the laughs and series will continue.

Chris D'elia

As a comic Chris D’elia seeks to change the game, not let the game change him.



You can do anything you put your mind to…wait, no you can’t. According to comedian Chris D’elia, we may think we are special; think we have our own theme music; think we are men (and women) on fire, but actually, we are just extras in someone else’s movie. The 36-year old actor/funny man, who looks like a cross between Pau Gasol, Marc Maron and a young Kenny Loggins, laid down some hilarious bits during a Parent’s Weekend show at Syracuse University last night. Ā Of course, some of the jokes provided some good old fashion shock value for some of the parents, but the students laughed anyway (in the seats right next to them) at subjects such as bear encounters, buying pants for your man friend, and the difficulty of digesting too much Chipolte and Kit Kats.

D’elia has the physical comedy of a young Jim Carrey and by the time he reached the closing segment about his friend’s daughter Onica, he had the entire crowd totally hooked.

D’elia has starred in sitcoms Whitney and Undateable.” His next comedy gigs are in Albany.

Michael Lenoci opened the show.

When your friend buys you pants that fit, according to D'elia, just say no.

If your friend buys you pants that fit, according to D’elia, just say no.

Bold. Honest. Funny.
