News About McVeigh’s – Looks Like I’m Hosting Now
I owe you a review on Florida, and there have been some lessons learned, let’s say, but I felt you should know about this breaking news in advance.
There’s been a bit of a change-up recently and I thought that even though I’m not in town just now, I should put something out there to let you know what’s going on.
Firstly, as of Thursday, February 26th, I’ll be taking over as the host of the comedy night Thursdays at McVeigh’s. I’ve hosted this room as a substitute for several evenings over the past while, and it looks like I’m going to be continuing for good in this capacity. I’m going to be working very hard with the staff and ownership at McVeigh’s to help make the night a continued success. It is my hope that the room will be as successful as it was during the past two-and-a-half years that Laura Prosko ran it. Under her guidance it became one of the best places to perform in the city, and I hope that this continues.
In the short term, there won’t be that big of a change-up. I still hope to ensure that the room is a place where the audience feels comfortable and the comics are set up for success in their attempts to bring new work or works in progress to the stage. McVeigh’s has always had that and I don’t what that to change. As always, all different types of comedy are welcome.
In terms of timing, the shows will remain on Thursday nights, in the upstairs bar at McVeigh’s, show time will start at 9:00pm, cover charge will remain $5.00 with comics performing or wanting to watch able to get in for free. I’m also going to look at getting some give-aways every night so, we’ll see how that goes. That may be a longer-term goal, but it is a goal nonetheless.
For our first night on Feb 26th, I’ve asked some comics to come out for the event. I will have some walk-up spots but I won’t know how many until later in the night. I will offer these up in a lottery-style. So please feel free to come down for this night.
In terms of future shows, I’ll be booking all spots in advance, 8 spots or so per show. There may be a spot or two available for walk-in, but I’ve not determined that yet. I’ll let you know as soon as those details are confirmed.
If you would like a spot, please don’t message me through Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Flickr, Flubber, Snkrdüdl, or any other social networking site. I have created a new email address for the purposes of bookings at McVeigh’s. To get on the show, please email me at
Thanks to all for your initial support. It’s greatly appreciated, and I will do my best to make the room a success and do it proud.
See you out there.
