The Broadway Comedy Club is introducing a great new comedy line-up for its weekly headliner showcase.
The next showcase will take place on Saturday, August 11th with two shows at 9 p.m and 11 p.m. This week's show will feature comedians Ross Bennett, Jon Fisch, Mike Vechionne, and Joe Devito. Here's a little more information about the humorous comedians that will take the stage:
During the mid-'70s, Ross Bennett leaped onto the comedy scene when the comedy explosion took America by storm. In 1977, Ross steered away from West Point and instead took aim at firing jokes in major nightclubs, convincing audiences of his hilarious and comedic theories over time. In his 30-year career, he has used his talents to spread laughter throughout comedy clubs in NYC.
Anyone who experiences comedy in New York should also know comedian Jon Fisch. His stand-up comedy focuses on city living. As a Boston native, Fisch moved to NYC and shortly thereafter was chosen as one of Comedy Central’s "Fresh Faces of Comedy" and named one of Back Stage Magazine's "10 Standout Stand-ups". His appearance on Last Comic Standing 4 sealed his reputation as an audience favorite and since then he has made TV appearances on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, VH1, and 3 Men and a Chick Flick on the WE Network, where he served as a host. He has also opened for Jerry Seinfeld in 2009, and continues to tour the country in theaters, colleges, corporate events, and comedy clubs.
After moving to New York City in 2003 from Youngstown, Ohio, Michael Vechionne has since appeared on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham and Fresh Face Debates. He has also starred on the IFC hit show Z Rock. In 2010, he won the People’s Choice Award for the New York Comedy Festival, and was a semi-finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Now Vechionne lends his talents to some of the hottest comedy clubs in NYC and headlines on stages across the country.
Stand-Up comedian Joe DeVito is known to "have the power to start fires using his mind." Yet when he's not utilizing his powers, he simply makes audiences everywhere laugh. Whether he's talking about relationships, Italian-American family values, or current events, his punch lines and unexpected twists make him a favorite at nightclubs and colleges across the nation. He has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, and has been a semi-finalist on season five of NBC's Last Comic Standing.
