After a hearty dinner of corned beef and cabbage, with a modicum of green in your attire and a lucky shamrock in your pocket, you’re all set to head over to Waterbury’s Seven Angels Theatre. To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style, whether you marched in the parade or stood on the sidelines, there’s no better place to be than at a St. Patrick’s Day Comedy Night. Conveniently scheduled for Saturday, March 17 at 8 p.m., a quartet of New York City comedians are ready to provide a leaping leprechaun of laughter for your entertainment.
Come hear Andy Hayward, Liam McEneaney, Bob Luparello and Carole Montgomery as they spread some blarney, as some would spread mustard on a good thick corned beef sandwich on seeded rye, pickle on the side, with a pint of the good stuff to wash it down.
Since he was in the sixth grade, Andy Hayward has been perfecting his unique storytelling techniques. Known for his twists of the tongue and clever turn of a phrase, complete with sound effects, he has amassed a colorful collection of characters in his comedy arsenal.
Just ask Liam McEnearney to discuss the merits of whiskey as a social drink and he can debate the issue for a good seven minutes. The son of a Jewish mother and an Irish-Catholic father, he has used his interesting background to riff about a variety of topics from meeting women on the Internet to drinking at a gay bar. He began touring with a comedy act at age 19 and has performed in England, Scotland, Ireland, Sweden and Germany, as well as all over this country.
Bob Luparello must have taken a wrong turn at Italy because he is now front and center at an Irish comedy night. Have no fear, he will adapt his angry Italian persona to fit the occasion and make his extended family Irish for at least the night. His special humor begins at his Catholic school upbringing and extends all the way to his wife and three kids and beyond and it’s still making him cry.
For wife and mother Carole Montgomery, comedy is a way of life. She loves baking brownies but she doesn’t want to do it full time. As a pioneering female comic, she enjoys entertaining with humor to balance her offstage home life and her onstage persona.
For tickets ($29,subscribers $24), call Seven Angels Theatre, Plank Road, Hamilton Park Pavilion, Waterbury at 203-757-4676 or online at www.sevenangelstheatre.org. Irish beer will be on tap and you’re invited to dress in your best kilt, tam or green shamrock sweater to enter the “Most Irish of the Night” contest. Prizes will be awarded.
Be prepared to laugh out loud a lot as this quartet of funny people go all out to entertain you.
