Show: Joe Matarese
Venue: Gotham Comedy Club
Location:
208 W. 23rd Street NYC
Time: 8pm & 10pm
Description of Show and Lineup:

Joe Matarese grew up in Cherry Hill, NJ and now resides with his wife and 2 kids just minutes outside of NYC in the burbs. His completely autobiographical act pokes fun at his subtly dysfunctional Italian family, his own neuroses and use of the SSRI Celexa and the ADD med Adder-all improving him in so many ways, life with 2 young kids, and his marriage to a psychologist (his perfect match).
Joe’s talent for turning real life struggles into comedic gems has landed him appearances on the most sought after TV and radio shows including The Late Show with , America’s Got Talent (where he received a standing ovation from all 4 celebrity judges and the 2000 person crowd), Chelsea Lately, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central Presents (his very own 1/2 hour special), The Howard Stern Show, and his brand new 1 hour special “Medicated”. You may also recognize him from Bravo’s reality series Better Half where he taught his wife to perform standup and she brought home the $20,000 prize.
Joe has hit the stage four times at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival, leading to two development deals with major television networks.  Joe’s podcast, Fixing Joe, is available every Friday in itunes, and everywhere else you can find podcasts. Now in its third season, the show’s format continues to evolve. True to its beginnings, every week Joe shares a specific problem he’s having in his life in talk show format. New to this season, Joe starts each episode with brand new, under development, live standup on that week’s topic, giving fans a window into how his everyday struggles feed his comedy.  He then brings the issue of the week to a comedian round table, fields phone calls from listeners who call into share their experiences and give Joe advice, and usually ends the show with some of his classic stand up bits on topic. Over the first two seasons of Fixing Joe, there have been over 300 episodes with guests like Craig Ferguson, , , Phil Rosenthal, and even Robert Romanus, otherwise known as Damone from one of Joe’s all time favorite movies: Fast Times At Ridgemont High. Season 3 brings more of Joe’s comedy to his fans while keeping the real-life issues and poignant moments of previous seasons. As always, Joe keeps hoping that by fixing him, you fix a little of yourself at the same time.

Show: Geno Bisconte Album Recording
Venue: New York Comedy Club
Location:
241 E. 24th Street NYCf
Time:  7pm & 9:15pm
Description of Show and Lineup:

He has been described by fellow comics, (to his face at least), as a “fast talking wise guy…that you just have to love.” This five-year veteran of the Philly and DC circuit now brings his talents to the New York City club scene- but not before leaving his mark back home. Geno brings a resume that includes gigs as current spokesman for the Delaware Lottery, roles in several indie films shot in the Philadelphia area, and writer of a monthly humor column for entertainment magazines. His comedy focuses on the one thing he knows- his life or lack thereof. “I absolutely love what I do but I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Everyone’s life is unique to them, which is also the very thing that makes it odd to everyone else and, in the end, so comical. So feel free to laugh at me but in doing so, realize that you also laughing at yourself and everyone else, and I believe that’s the beauty of our individuality.” Geno adds that his true passion is making people smile whether it be through comedy, acting, or anything in between. “I argue whether there is anything more beautiful than another person’s smile…sometimes it just takes a penis joke bring it out!” We told ya’ he was loveable…

Show: Ask Me Another
Venue: The Bell House
Location:
149 7th Street Brooklyn
Time: 7:30pm
Description of Show and Lineup:

Ask Me Another With Special Guest Roy Wood, Jr.
Puzzlemaster Will Shortz and Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! host Peter Sagal walk into a bar… No, it’s not the start of a joke. It’s the essence of Ask Me Another, a rambunctious hour that blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music. Host Ophira Eisenberg invites in-studio guests and listeners alike to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones, and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from house musician Jonathan Coulton. For an hour, listeners can play along as Eisenberg puts questions to a rotating band of puzzle gurus, audience members and special mystery guests, who then takes a turn in the contestant’s chair facing trivia games written especially for him or her. What you’ll hear resembles the casual intimacy of game night at a friend’s house: one where scores are forgotten in favor of hilarious gaffes. Ask Me Another is recorded live at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY. Ask Me Another is a co-production of NPR and WNYC.
