When this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner happened, surely stand-up aficionados wondered what Gilbert Gottfried would have worn to that Met Gala of D.C.? Classic tux or something less formal?
"Oh God, I think whatever I could get away with clothes-wise, unless they were supplying the tux," says Gottfried, who is headlining the 6th Borough Comedy Festival June 9 at the Art House Productions Theater in Jersey City.
Over 70 kick-ass comedians will be performing for the first annual 6th Borough Comedy Festival. The area in general is no stranger to stand-up. From 2013 to 2015, there was the Jersey City Comedy Festival – (partly why that title may have been off limits). WOW Comedy continues in Hoboken (now at the House of Que), as does the Hoboken Comedy Festival. And local venues throughout Hudson County perennially host shows.
