Would comedy acts work well here? Is there interest in such a thing? I know the funny farm is closed but in the handful of times I have been there in the last 2 years the place always appeared to be packed. Actually I don't see why comedy wouldn't be a decent draw. I mean Seinfeld played at the Cathedral in New Castle.

comedy acts are pretty terrible in front of an audience that big; there's a certain kind of intimacy you need with stand-up comedy. nonetheless, i think it would be a decent draw, but i can't think of any decent comedians who do shows that big.

You are right. Comedians can't all be Dane Cook (thank you baby Jesus) Though I don't think Dane would play a 5000 seat venue in Youngstown, would he?
Maybe like a comedy tour of sorts like the "Comedians of Comedy" or yechhh dare I say "the Blue Collar Comedy Tour" or double yechhhhh "The Bob and Tom Comedy Tour".
Did I mention YECH?

Maybe someone should open a comedy club downtown. Start it off with some smaller, less know, or even local acts and charge like $10 to get in. Picture this: Dinner at 6ish at somewhere like the MVR or even Rosetta Stone, Comedy Club from like 8 to 11, then Cedars or Barleys to catch a show. Or, maybe hit up Imbibe for a more intimate atmosphere. Sounds like an awesome date to me.


The comedy club could even do a "family friendly" version of some shows starting at 5 or 6 to draw in parents with kids. The Chevy Centre having comedy isn't a bad idea, but like Mackey said (yes, I agree with him this time), comedy in front of a big crowd isn't nearly as entertaining as a small one.

To the endearing Ms. Poulton,
Being someone lacking in brains, looks, muscle, and disposable capital, I can not provide this sort of venue personally. I can only offer my intended promise of a glorious return to the downtown with family and wallet in tow if such a thing were to happen.
I will refrain from being a "Negative Ned" this time around except to say, unless you have an interest in minor league hockey there isn't very much going on at the Chevy Centre, unfortunately.

i saw the comedians of comedy in a place not much bigger than the nyabinghi. patton oswalt made fun of youngstown. comedians would probably be more at home at someplace like the deyor, where lewis black performed about a year ago.

"The comedy club could even do a "family friendly" version of some shows starting at 5 or 6 to draw in parents with kids."

are you suggesting that a comedy club ask comedians to tone down their acts for earlier shows? i can't really think of any comic that would agree to that, and i'm not sure if a stand up comedy club is a good place to bring kids. there's a certain atmosphere you need to be funny.

Why Mr. Mackey,
All this crazy talk from you this week.
First with the whole logic and reasoning in the Phil Kidd discussion and now with the suggestion that a nightclub might not be the best place for children?
You so crazy!


By bobservo ( Bob Mackey )

call me crazy, but sometimes it's a good idea to THINK about your ideas before you share them.
