Bridgetown: Testosterone at the Tanker

Posted by Courtney Ferguson on Fri, Apr 23, 2010 at 12:07 PM


I got a late start to last night's Bridgetown Comedy Fest, so I went straight to the Tanker for the fun, open-mic-ish Comedy Cavalcade. Basically it's comedians trying to make a room full of other comedians laugh. Sometimes it works (Brody Stevens!), sometimes not so much. There was a lot of testosterone flying around the room last night, as everyone was obviously itchy to get their Bridgetown on. So much testosterone that some of the funny ladies got a little short-sheeted on the laughs (Jena Friedman's funny AIDS-themed set seemed to fall on ears that wanted to hear more about baseball and stupid girlfriends). But Jamie Lee sealed the deal. She was great. Go to her link, watch her video. Make sure you check out her set (that sounds dirty, sorry Jamie Lee).

Here are Andrew's picks for tonight.
