Comedy at Hook & Ladder

Funny fundraiser from Fat Jonny’s

The Granville Hook & Ladder just want to make you laugh.

March 19 at the firehouse on Quaker Street the Hooks host an evening of comedy by a group known as Fat Jonny’s Comedy Show.

“You’ve got to see these guys, they’re just a riot,” treasurer Dan Roberts said Friday.

The 14-or so comedians will hit the stage with skits and stand up in a show Roberts said brought tears of laughter when he took stopped in at a performance in Lake George.

“They do skits and all kinds of things, there are costume changes; they’ll do something, change and come out and do another routine,” Roberts said.

The show starts at 8 p.m. and runs until 11 p.m. with tickets at the door $10; advanced tickets are just $8. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and food will be available as well as adult beverages – for that reason the show is 21 and over only.

“I’ve been to it and if you don’t bust a gut watching these guys then there’s something wrong with you,” he said. “These guys are really, really good. They get the crowd involved.”

The Jonny behind Jonny’s tours the region with his show appearing in Saratoga, Albany Lake George, Glens Falls and even New York City. Of the 50 shows the group does a year, Roberts said they also do 10 fundraising events for not-for profit groups like firefighters.

Jonny heard about the Hook & Ladder through mutual friends and approached the firefighters about hosting one of the benefit shows the groups puts on.

Roberts said the department is always looking for different ways to fundraise and this opportunity just kind of happened along at the right time.

Depending on the response to the comedy night, Roberts said the department will consider making the event an annual occurrence.

For more information or to purchase advanced call the Hook & Ladder firehouse at 642-2401.

A member of the Hooks will be on hand to sell tickets each day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday and tickets will be sold at the door.
