Comedy clubs, alt-weeklies, brothers, professional wrestlers, that sort of thing
Have you checked out the cover story in this week’s edition of the Grid yet? It’s a thorough and glowing profile of Comedy Bar, the west end club that’s “making comedy fun again.” The piece features some rather great coverage of the Sketchersons and its current members – including my brother, head writer Jon Blair.
While you’re there, be sure to check out the photo gallery. Among other things, you’ll find a terrific shot of the very funny Jocelyn Geddie, who looks remarkably poised and professional for a woman who’s just been surprised backstage during a costume change by a photographer from a local weekly.
You can check out the Sketchersons this Sunday night at Comedy Bar. They do a weekly show, but this weekend’s edition will be hosted by wrestling legend Bret “The Hitman” Hart, who’s one of the best recurring “Sunday Night Live” hosts there is (or was, or ever will be). In the meantime, you can head over to YouTube and whet your appetite with a sketch called “Jon Gets Chased.”
