Laugh riot in Boston

In Culture, SND Boston on October 16, 2007 at 2:18 am

In lieu of the annual banquet, me and a few other SNDers grabbed some excellent Thai at Montien in the Theater District. I know lots of people work really hard to put on a kickin’ banquet each year, but it’s not really my scene. I was also able to catch the finals of the Boston Comedy Festival contest. The winner was Tommy Savitt, who Ernie describes as a cerebral Andrew Dice Clay. He’s got a funny schtick, playing the role of a blue collar, New York lowlife.

I heard about the finals from comedienne/actress/et al. Emily Singer, who I met in the elevator at the Park Plaza. She was wondering what the heck a SmartNews was.

After the finalists were done, the festival gave out awards to Shelley Berman, Bill Dana and Lewis Black, who each made a little funny as they accepted their awards. Berman in particular hammed it up something sweet.
