Wits N’ Giggles Stand-Up Comedy’s Best of Series continues on Friday May 2 at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena with a start time of 7:30 p.m.

The May 2 edition of Wits n’ Giggles will be headlined by returning comedian Bill Boronkay. The following is “The Authorized Biography” sent from Bill himself:

“Once one of the country’s fastest rising sportscasters, Bill Boronkay enjoyed stops in Clarksburg, WV, Evansville, IN and Kansas City before finally landing in sunny Cleveland, OH where he was assigned various hazardous duties. Along the way, Boronkay won 5 Emmy’s, one of which is proudly displayed in his mother’s home office behind a lamp.
After a failed audition with ESPN (a mirror was involved), Bill reevaluated his career and took off in lukewarm pursuit of his true 14th dream, and stand up.
Boronkay continues to work in Cleveland TV, hosting the, “High School Sports Insider” on SportsTime Ohio.
In 2011, Bill cut back his media work to increase travel and share his less than remarkable life experiences as a never married, middle aged man.”

Opening for Boronkay will be Dan Brown, an up and coming comedian from Brooklyn, New York who now resides in Cleveland, Ohio.

Although those two will be enough for one show, two more local comedians will hit the Arena Club stage. Beefy Laughs and Eric Basile will be featured as local talent, while the show will be hosted by everyone’s favorite emcee, Robb Will.
Wits n’ Giggles is an 18 & up show and will feature a light menu along with servers to accommodate the guests and give them the opportunity to enjoy food and beverages. Sully’s Irish Pub, located in the Arena will be open for dinner before the show and will host free live music from Cindy Haight following the comedy show.

Tickets for the comedy series are $10 presale and $12 on the day of the show. They are available now at www.jamestownarena.com, the Arena Box Office or by calling 716-484-2624.

There is also a special $5 ticket for students with a valid college ID.
