Comedy Festival takes over Hoboken, Secaucus ‘Insult comedian’ to heckle Hoboken…

first_imgThose who appreciate the classic insult comedy of Don Rickles, Rodney Dangerfield, and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog are in for a treat when Jimmie Lee, an offensive dentist and comedian, will take his act to Hoboken and Secaucus as part of the third annual Meadowlands Comedy Festival running from April 25 through April 30.Lee, who calls himself “The Jersey Outlaw,” will be filming a reality comedy show on Saturday, April 29 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the streets of Hoboken, where he will deploy his vast arsenal of insult jokes on the public at large. Residents are invited to come watch or participate. He’s hard to miss. Wearing sunglasses and a leather jacket, Lee will show up with a limousine, camera crew, and models, and film his heckling for a pilot episode of a reality comedy show.The festival will host an after-party at the Dubliner’s newly renovated rooftop at 8 p.m. after Lee’s filming, while downstairs, Host Laz Vic will host a Hoboken Comedy Factory Reunion.“It’s all in good fun,” said Lee. “If you can’t make fun of yourself and other people, then what’s the point? You have to enjoy your life, and laugh because we’re not going to be here forever.”_____________“I think people still need the old-school stuff from the ’70s and ’80s. I like to keep the heckles and one-liners alive.” – Jimmie Lee____________Nothing is off limits for Lee, who is able to get laughs by offending, while avoiding the hurtful vulgarity that other comics may employ. His comedy is tongue-in-cheek, often with sexual overtones, and reminiscent of the old insult comedy genre that’s been slowly dying off with its pioneers and new standards of political correctness in American culture.“People come out and do comedy now and are slobs. They curse all the time and they scream,” said Lee. “I think people still need the old-school stuff from the ’70s and ’80s. I like to keep the heckles and one-liners alive.”The festival will feature many comedians performing over the course of six nights in five locations – two in Hoboken and four in Secaucus. Performances will take place at Trillos 15X, Charlie’s Corner, Blackjack Mulligans, and China Chef in Secaucus during the week, and the Dubliner in Hoboken over the weekend.Lee, 50, is confident in his future prospects in the comedy industry. “We just signed a five-year deal with Harrah’s Casino in Las Vegas,” said Lee. “Now we’re waiting for them to sign.”Lee’s filming is free to watch, but the rest of the shows are not, ranging from $10 – $25 per ticket. A calendar of events and tickets are available at meadowlandscomedyclub.com/box-office. Table reservations can be made by calling 201-893-9777.last_img read more

The announcement was made on March 2002 and was made official the next day. This created a lot of problems, like Brock Lesnar who was then in SmackDown refused to defend his WWE Undisputed Champion title on Raw, which caused the title to become a SmackDown exclusive. WWE officials then had to unveil the World Heavyweight Championship as a Raw-exclusive title.Also Read l Kevin Owens gets fired from WWE by Shane McMahon on SmackDownWWE then changed many Networks, between 2006 to 2015, the wrestling company telecasted its shows on the CW Network, then moved to MyNetworkTV on 2008 and then shifted to Syfy in 2010.

Former wrestler Booker T started commentating for SmackDown, and the Blue-Band telecast the second-largest episode in American television history. Memorable matches like John Cena vs Big Show and Triple H vs Sheamus were played between these five years.
