American Comedy Company: Jacob Sirof and Freddy Lockhart

16 Jul

Kevin :

We were on our way to finding the parking garage that Savadra went to when she went to the show with my Dad. Parking was gonna be $10 and we only scraped up $9.60 because we didn’t want to go to an ATM at all. Not only did the guy take it, but he also VALET parked the car!

Savadra scored some tickets to the American Comedy Company, again (If you follow, you know her and my Father went first!). We have date nights and we use Groupon and other services to go on lovely dates. This time I went.

Nice quaint spot. When you go inside along the wall to the left are all the comics who have just appeared within the last month or so. Big names have been there. That was cool.

Once you get to the “comedy room” it opens up to seats ahead all long the stage. Some seats have a small table for food and/ or drinks. They had a two item minimum, meaning you could get food and a drink and you’ve met their requirements. We got there at Happy Hour so that was definitely “on the money”.

We had some great appetizers and I got to order a craft beer. You should know by now, I’m into the craft beers, buddy. See why here.

Anyway, the opening act was a guy named Fernando who also played host. He was funny. His jokes were about Mexicans, him being one (I found all but one comic said something about Mexicans).He also has a medicinal choice for ladies experiencing PMS. You’d have to hear him explain. Good jokes, good guy.

Then there was a brother named Pritchard who did his thing, mainly, about how we as people do some silly shizz everyday. What I liked was how he explained Old Rap and New Rap. Great description AND song! You’d have to hear him, too. As a matter of fact, I told him we’ll see him again.

Freddy Lockhart was the first headliner. He was a half white/half black man who used this to his advantage with his jokes. He described the plight of being both and the differences on what both races say and do THAT ARE STUPID. I like this kind of humor! He let everyone know who stupid we can all be. He went into dogs which led him into some FANTASTIC impressions. I’d see him again.

The last guy was Jacob Sirof. This guy was on Last Comic Standing. He was an excellent comic. It seemed like his whole act was improvisational. He went in on a lady who sat in the front row. He went in on my wife because of a question he asked about Oprah. He went in on a few “Pinoy” guys who were sitting shoulder to shoulder watching the show. This guy was EXCELLENT.A must see. I’ll be following him on twitter.

Overall, the show was fun and started on time and ended on time. We were on the way to our next show at the Comedy Palace that night, so, the timing worked out in our favor.
