In 2018, the Never Mind Comedy show began as a quiet little comedy event at the clubhouse. So quietly in fact, that the first show consisted of four comedians looking at each other in the basement. The second show, we had a sprinkle of an audience, then a dozen or so, and just as we were unstacking more chairs, COVID hit.
The little show that could, now couldn’t. But in the spirit of our members, and their gumption when life whips one at you, we will be continuing with a modified version of the show which ultimately makes it more accessible so jokes on you, COVID.
Comedy is a great connector, as are stories. Rather than park my friends in front of a computer to tell jokes at, Never Mind Comedy is going to lean into the funny stories, and origins, of the folks that tell the jokes. I love comedy and I love jokes, but the chats over on the late-night tv couch, and the talks backstage and on the road, have never failed to delight me.
So that is the path that we’re on!
