Joe Wong Roast

"A roast is an event in which an individual is subjected to a public presentation of comedic insults, praise, outlandish true and untrue stories, and heartwarming tributes, the implication being that the roastee is able to take the jokes in good humor and not as serious criticism or insult, and therefore, show their good nature,"said Wikipedia. Don't miss the likes of Tony V, Kelly MacFarland and Tom Dustin roasting fellow Boston comedian colleague and BCF alum Joe Wong.

Darryl Lenox

 

Darryl Lenox rocks a comedy club like a fear of God Southern preacher rocks a church. He prowls the stage as audiences laugh out their Amens! to his honest and real insights into how we live our lives. One fateful night, Lenox took a dare from a girlfriend who challenged him to stop talking about greatness and, rather, go achieve it, so he entered an open mic competition in Seattle. Greatness did not occur that night. But inspiration did. Finally, Lenox had found a home in this world on the stand-up stage. Word spread, and with increasing amounts of stage time in Seattle and throughout the Northwest, a world-class stand-up comedian was born, capitalizing on his keen sense of observation and his immense talent to energize an audience. Festival bookings (HBO’s Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen; Montreal’s Just For Laughs) started to come, and he hasn’t looked back. Life hasn’t been easy for Lenox, having been afflicted with deteriorating eyesight since his youth, rendering him legally blind, yet with the loss of vision has come brilliantly funny insight. “I can’t see two feet in front of me,” Lenox is quick to quip, “but I can see tomorrow.” For this stand-up truth teller, tomorrow looks awfully bright, and audiences indeed are richer for it.
