There was a great vibe to this night – it was a celebration of the room’s anniversary and the birthday of the room’s manager (comedian Seizure Kaiser) as well as an attempt to do something very different – get 60 comedians up on stage, each telling a few jokes, over 60 minutes. The late announcement that Steve Hughes would be the guest headliner for the night was icing on the gooey cake. Sure, half the crowd were comedians waiting to grab the mic, but there was a solid slab of comedy fans prepared to enjoy the night as well.
This is part of a birthday celebration for the International House of Comedy weekly comedy room in Alexandria, and also a warm-up for a planned world record attempt in the not too distant future. And best of all, it’s FREE.
