Last night I went to go see “NESN Comedy All Stars” with my best friend Kristin. This show is dedicated to sports comedy in the Boston area that is sponsored by NESN (New England Sports Network). They were free tickets from Ticketmaster since I just bought other tickets and I figured that it would be something different for us to do instead of getting dinner or just hanging out. I saw the show last season and it was alright, but not extremely funny. However, this live performance was absolutely amazing. When we arrived, we went up to the Mezzanine seats and were pretty far back, but one of the ushers escorted us to the box seats to the right of the stage overlooking it. They were amazing seats and I was extremely impressed.
Tommy Davidson, from “In Living Color”, was the host for the night. He not only made the crowd including Kristin and I laugh, but he made himself laugh a couple of times. He kept interrupting the stage manager when he was trying to countdown to taping and each time it was even funnier.
Iliza Shlesinger was one of the comedians that performed last night and she was awesome. In case you were wondering, she was the “Last Comic Standing” winner of season 6. She has two major qualities, she’s extremely hot and VERY funny.
The live taping of the show was really interesting. In one night, they taped three shows and made it seem like they were actually three different nights. Tommy Davidson was wearing different shirts and they closed out every third comic with saying goodnight and then they introduced him again two minutes later. There is one section of the show where they play something that is pre-recorded and they asked us not to clap after Tommy introduced it.
Overall the night was great and we had a lot of fun. Watch for season 2 of “NESN’s Comedy All Stars” which airs I believe Friday nights after Red Sox games (next season obviously).
