Thankfully the first installment of the McDonald and Carney Comedy Hour at the SoHo Playhouse in NYC was a success! In what will be a monthly showcase of comedic talent, McDonald & carney now have their own Comedy Hour just like Abbott & Costello and Martin & Lewis did.
The show is hosted and headlined by Rich McDonald & Joe Carney and will feature a variety of comedy acts. In our first show on August 14, we were fortunate to be joined by stand-up comedians Adam Lucidi, Kevin Dombrowski, and Natty Bumpercar. All three had great stand-up sets and really had the crowd laughing.
Joe and I started the show with street interviews of Joe’s characters Cowardly Lion, Christopher Walken, Tony Soprano, and Jackie Gleason. After the stand up sets, Joe and I returned for a sketch and then some improv games. Each game involved audience participation and was a lot of fun!
We are scheduled to do the show every month on the second Thursday at 8:00pm at the SoHo Playhouse. Don’t be afraid to spread the word and lets have a blast moving forward!
