Wits ‘n Giggles Stand-Up Comedy brought to you by Bud Light and Comfort Inn returns to the Northwest Arena Saturday, October 21 at 7:30 p.m. The night highlights headliner, Jim Seward; feature, Dan Mahoney; along with host Robb Will.
Opening the night of comedy is Buffalo’s own, Dan Mahoney. Dan is a great comedian and a bad actor whose unique observation on life has earned him industry acclaim and a loyal following. He has survived drinking, dating, corporate life, and cancer, and draws from these experiences to deliver an unforgettable performance. Dan has earned the status of regional finalist of Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight, and on October 21, he will bring his talents to Jamestown, NY.
Headlining the show is the hilarious Jim Seward. Hailing from Watertown, Tennessee, Jim served 26 years in the U.S. military before turning to a career in comedy. His quick one-liners, take on kids, marriage, and travel takes the audience on a non-stop ride of laughter. He has quickly become a local favorite, and has opened for one of the original Latin Kings of Comedy, Joey Medina and as well as Tommy Davidson. According to Jim, doing stand-up allows him to voice a lot of things people think, but are just too polite to say out loud.
Returning as emcee is Jamestown, New York’s 67th Funniest Comedian and longtime host of Wits ‘n Giggles, Robb Will. After losing interest or possibly failing out of college, Robb enlisted in the U.S. Army. There he repaired M-1 Tank Turrets, which isn’t a good civilian career choice, leaving him nothing to fall back on if this comedy stuff doesn’t work out. Robb started his comedy career after surviving multiple tragedies, including one that left him medically “One of a Kind.” Robb has a movie credit, Battlefield – Home, and he’s part of two world records. Out of necessity, Robb jokes about his reality.
