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.

Everybody Loves Chris (in the end)

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.

Bold. Honest. Funny.

The folks at Newhouse told us big things were on the horizon for Larry Wilmore when he appeared here as part of the Conversation on Race and Entertainment Media series. Wilmore just celebrated his 100th episode of “The Nightly Show” earlier this week. Here’s an interview he did on “Fresh Air.”

The Comedy’s Best Kept Secret Tour blew into The Syracuse Funnybone on Thursday and marked the return of comedic native son,Ā Dan Frigolette. Ā Also on the bill were Rell Battle (Comedy Central, Key and Peele) and newcomer (to Syracuse) Matt Richards.

So far the tour has logged nearly 7,000 miles, landing in 52 cities for 66 shows (including Canada and Alaska). No topic for the Syracuse leg of the tour (which added Travis Blunt) as the comics went in on Bill Cosby, crazy politicians who choose to swim in Onondaga lake, social media etiquette, Ebola virus, re-defining ladies night, and life on the road.

We are hoping Frigolette will soon unleash the behind the scenes video footage, which has to be a cross between “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and “National Lampoon’s Vacation.”

Free Prize Inside

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

On National Record Store Day this year, we remember a record that was once the free prize inside a Mad Magazine. The material was called flexi-dics (not vinyl) but it still played on a turntable at 33 1/3.
