Comedy: ‘Ho Ho Ho…HA HA HA?’

Comedians Jessimae Peluso, Dan Frigolette and Moody McCarthy got their starts in Syracuse but now ply their talking trade in New York City. The zany trio is home for the holidays to perform a show they’ve titled “Ho Ho Ho…HA HA HA?” at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 23, at Justin’s Tuscan Grill, 6400 Yorktown Circle; $15; 437-1461.

Peluso graduated from Henninger High School in 2000 and has since appeared on TV’s “Last Comic Standing” and the “Tyra Banks Show.” In October 2010, Peluso headlined a Hometown Humor Tour at the Palace Theater.

Dan Frigolette, a 2001 alum of Baldwinsville’s Baker High School, debuted as a stand-up in 2002 as part of Joe DeLion’s Viva Debris. Now he opens for Lisa Lampanelli all over the East Coast and performs weekly at the Big Apple’s biggest clubs.

Moody McCarthy, a Corcoran High School grad, got his start in 1992 at the original WiseGuys Comedy Club on Erie Boulevard East. He moved to NYC in 1998 and has since been featured on TV’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Star Search.”

North Side native Jessimae Peluso joins forces with two other CNY-bred comedians, Dan Frigolette and Moody McCarthy, for a seasonal stand-up show at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 23, at Justin’s Tuscan Grill, 6400 Yorktown Circle; 437-1461.
