Liberty Comedy brings more great comedy back to the Baby Grand, Stars of Late-Night TV. The secret stars of comedy, the funniest people you’ve maybe never heard of: Starring Jim Mendrinos (Comedy Central, HBO, BBC) and Adrienne Iapalucci (Letterman, Last Comic Standing, Gotham Comedy Live).
Jim Mendrinos literally wrote the book on comedy (“The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Comedy Writing” Alpha Press, 2004.) Jim’s comedy has been featured on stand-up stages around the world. He’s brought his special brand of funny to Current TV, SiTV, Comedy Central, The Fox News Network, HBO and the BBC. His act is a comedic exploration of emotional peaks and valleys challenging the audience to mine the topics with him. The audience goes from the laughter of recognition, as Jim covers the things they were talking about ‘just today,’ to the laughter inspired by delighted wonder as they experience new things through the flat out funny observations of this trusted performer. Jim Mendrinos is the comic who you will laugh hard with tonight, and quote for years to come.
Adrienne Iapalucci born and bred in the Bronx, Adrienne skewed look on life is reflected in her unique brand of intelligent comedy. Her dark sense of humor is enhanced by her political incorrectness and counteracted by her love of dogs. Comedy fans might recognize Adrienne from her performances as a semifinalist on season 7 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and her appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. In 2009, Adrienne won the first ever People’s Choice award at the New York Comedy Festival. Adrienne has been featured in the Daily News, New York Times, Reader’s Digest, and TimeOut NY magazine.
