Comedy and music highlight event

B y Jaime Thomas

It’s going to be a laugh at the Granville Border Riders 4th Annual Comedy Show on Saturday.

This year’s “Laugh Your Cans Off” lineup includes Steve Marshall, Matt Bergman and Shaun Murphy, and musical entertainment will be provided by Airtight.

“It promises to be very exciting,” said Elaine Daigle, membership coordinator for the snowmobile club.

On his website, Marshall describes himself as “a gifted writer, accomplished director, talented actor and a brilliant standup comedian, who shares his heartfelt, but extremely humorous, stories about sex, ethnicity and being the only Jew in his family.”

Bergman, meanwhile, describes his comedy as having sarcastic style and absurd observations, on his website. He has also opened for such big names as Dave Attell and Bill Burr and has performed across the country.

Murphy “has the rare distinction of being not only a struggling comedian but a struggling writer, as well. As a comedian, he was a semi-finalist in the first annual New York Comedy Contest in 2009 and has performed in many clubs throughout the U.S. and Canada,” according to his website.

The show is a fundraiser for both the snowmobile club and the local food pantry, and Daigle said it has proved successful in previous years.

“In the past we’ve gathered up carloads of food for the food pantry,” she said.

The event, which takes place at the Forum Restaurant, starts at 7 p.m., so those who want to eat first should arrive early. Drinks will be available at the bar throughout the evening.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $18 at the door, and Daigle said the show usually shows out. There will also be a raffle the night of the comedy, and everyone is encouraged to bring a canned good to donate.

For more information or for tickets, call Chris at 518-642-9283 or Elaine at 518-642-1438.
