This weekend I’m returning to Cincinnati to perform at one of my favorite venues: Go Bananas Comedy Club. [Details below.]
The club has three things that make it stand out.
(1) It has low ceilings providing acoustics that make every crowd reaction really pop. The laughing and clapping fill the room. (And you can really feel the boos.)
(2) It’s dark. Real dark. So, individual audience members can feel comfortable laughing at anything they want. If you want to laugh at goofy “dad” jokes, or a dumb puns, or mean-evil-disgusting material about taboo topics, feel free. No one is going to judge you. Because they can’t see you. It’s too dark. You can hide in the anonymity of the darkness and enjoy yourself.
(3) The management cares more about the show than anything else. And they aren’t afraid to turn away customers to protect the show. For example, you know how people like to complain? Some complaints are reasonable. And some aren’t. If the management at Go Bananas decides a customer is a stupid, irritable, and unreasonable… Well, chances are, that person probably isn’t going to be a smart, pleasant, and reasonable audience member. So, for the good of the show– to protect the other customers’ good time– that person is politely told to “Get the F#*% out and never come back.” Sometimes this happens before the show begins.
My first time headlining Go Bananas was almost 10 years ago and I’m always thrilled to go back.
If you want to see a clip from one of those shows back in 2009, here you go:
