Comedy on Bay

On Thursday, September 19th at 8pm, SNL’s Colin Jost & Michael Che will be performing at the St. George Theater to benefit the Staten Island Museum.

Making audiences laugh for nearly a decade can really work up a thirst. Maybe that’s why the Impractical Joker known simply as ‘Q’ is reviving a classic Staten Island Beer. Brian Quinn, who has starred on TruTV’s Impractical Jokers since 2011 has a new project that’s no joke. The former NYFD firefighter is breathing new life into the Rubsam and Horrmann brand of beer that was originally founded nearly 150 years ago in 1870.

Just this week, ‘The Daily Show’ aired a segment featuring correspondent Desi Lydic where she spoke to a few deer experts, as well as some Staten Island locals, to get some answers.

Recently, SI Makerspace has been playing home to Manny Rondon, Mike Bryk, and Joon Chung’s stand-up and comedy showcase, ‘Super Secret Show’

From Thursday, July 12, 2018 through March 17th, 2019 the Staten Island Museum will be hosting an exclusive exhibit on the Impractical Jokers.

Recently, a video surfaced online containing the full hour long audio from comedian Louis CK’s 2011 show at the St. George Theater.

The show was a benefit for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, many of whom were given free tickets to the show. The material from that night would go on to make up the majority of his special ‘Oh My God.’

Now running for more than half a decade, the guys (…aka The Tenderloins: Sal, Q, Joe, and Murr) are bound to be recognized every now and then.

For the past year or so, local comics Manny Rondon and Joon Chung have been producing a monthly (sometimes bi-monthly) comedy showcase from the SI Arts Culture Lounge in the SI Ferry Terminal.
