A critic's review from Ventura Night Out and Thousand Oaks Night Out.
WHAT'S REAL GOOD COMEDY
Did you hear the one about the traveling salesman? Such an old cliche. When the chips are down or you have the blues, go see a good stand-up comic. Well, here in Ventura County - we have the opportunity to watch top notch comedians and up and coming comics as well. Ventura Night Out sponsors What's Real Good Comedy and 805Comedy.com - two great comedy shows featuring plenty of LA and Ventura based comics at local venues throughout the county. We've been to a couple of the shows and the comedians can be hit or miss.
But, you need to understand why. Some of the comedians are not polished yet - they are on their way and need venues like these to get started. They'll throw in a few zingers and plenty of duds. Sometimes we'll sit there and say to ourselves "OMG, can't wait until the next comic jumps on the stage. Somebody get me another beer".
So you enjoy or withstand a couple of these characters and then the featured comedians come onto the stage. Now, they are hysterical and worth every penny you paid. They are more comfortable and relaxed on stage. They've paid their dues in the cheesy clubs, oh but wait, they're still in a cheesy club. Well, that's our fortune.
A couple of months ago, we listened and laughed for over an hour to Bret Ernst, a comedian that had his own special on Comedy Central, was featured in BET's One Mic Stand, Showtime's Comics Without Borders and the feature film Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show. So, they do have great headliners too and all the headliners have a similar bio.
The host of WRGC is a 6'5" or something dude named Andrew Berkovitch, also an up and coming comedian in VC. He has a few good laughs as well.
The host of 805 is Darryl Rumens, a squeaky dude that likes to throw in some zingers on stage.
So here's the scoop, can you afford $7 to $10 and perhaps a two drink minimum? Than take the comic plunge and have some fun. Sometimes there's no cover charge and you're sure to have a great time.
Check out their dates and FREE TICKETS are available for each of them. This is a Best Bet.
