Need a laugh? December is ripe for stimulating the funny bone, and who better to bring humor to the situation than CNY natives Dan Frigolette and Moody McCarthy?
At his upcoming show in Syracuse, Baldwinsville native Frigolette plans to host the show and unleash a year's worth of fresh comedic stories and quips, polished in his performances of as many as 10 a week in New York over the last few months. His humor comes from true-to-life stories, and his realization of his own insecure neuroses.
A 2001 Graduate of Baldwinsville's C.W. Baker High, Frigolette went on to Syracuse University to study at Newhouse's Communications School graduating in 2005 with a dual degree in advertising and communication rhetorical studies, with a minor in fine arts.
"Four years of college at an impressive university and now I tell fart jokes for a living," Frigolette said.
Frigolette brings with him Moody McCarthy, a New York comedian who got his start in Syracuse. McCarthy, a 1984 Corcoran High School graduate, got his start at the original Wiseguys Comedy Club on Erie Boulevard. After earning local celebrity status on Y94, McCarthy moved to New York to make his dreams come true. He has since appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing and the revival of Star Search. Moody travels the country bringing laughter with his blend of sarcastic humor aimed mostly at himself. McCarthy also recently released a comedy CD entitled "The Night it Went Well."
The Christmas Comedy Spectacular show will take place on Thursday Dec. 23 at Jazz Central in downtown Syracuse, and will feature 90 minutes of comedy from the two satirists. There will be an 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. show. Tickets are $10 and can be reserved by calling 635-7752.
