There’s a nice little comedy scene unfolding in Nyack. The Pour House hosts a fun open mic night; Olive’s has an Comedy Open Mike night every Monday as does The Turning Point in Piermont.
But Levity Live…now we’re talking another level. National comics. This week Pablo Francisco takes the stage. He’s one of those comics, in the classic mold— a Rickles or Dangerfield for the modern era. Think of him as a Rickles with crystal meth jokes. Francisco’s a veteran of the comedy circuit, grew up in a Houlihan’s in Tucson and as a child was a member of Jim Jones’ Guyana cult. He’ll bring his comedy stylings to Levity Live this weekend along with Steve Kramer.
See Pablo Francisco at Levity Live May 6-8, 2016. Inside The Palisades Center, 4210 Palisades Center Dr,
West Nyack, NY.
