They’re at it again at the Rosendale Theatre: populating their newly reconstructed stage will people saying funny things. The monthly live Comedy Showcase is becoming a hot draw on Rosendale’s Main Street, and it returns this Friday, January 22 at 9:30 p.m.
Topping the lineup this month is the Albany-based transgender phenom Jaye McBride, who has a TED Talk under her belt along with appearances at the Boston Comedy Festival. If you’re getting a little weary of depressing movies with trans people dying, check out McBride for a dose of the lighter side of life in drag!
Also on the Rosendale Theatre Comedy Showcase program are comics Meg Mahoney (Shamrock Association, Laugh Factory), Pete Vinogradov (Sebsi Studio, Comedy Works in Albany), Lauren Turczak (Comedy Works, Greenwich Village Comedy Club) and Mikael Gregg, who has worked with Rodney Dangerfield and Kevin James. Henry Liu will host the giddy proceedings.
Admission costs only $10. The Rosendale Theatre is located at 408 Main Street (Route 213) in downtown Rosendale, and there’s ample parking out back. For more info, call (845) 658-8989 or visit https://www.rosendaletheatre.org.
