Rock ‘n’ Roll, Comedy at the Point
For about the last three years — beginning with a 25th anniversary show celebrating the storied Somers Point landmark called Tony Mart’s (1944-‘82) — the “Tony Mart’s Presents” series has been reviving the legacy of southern New Jersey rock ‘n’ roll with a diversity of excellent musicians.
That trend will continue, and this year Carmen Marotta of Tony Mart’s Presents will also co-produce with Bob Koob a comedy series at Sandi Pointe Coastal Bistro.
The Comedy at the Point series kicks off Sunday, May 30, with lifelong southern New Jersey resident Dena Blizzard (a former Miss New Jersey), and JJ Ramirez of New York City. Blizzard recently debuted her one-woman show One Funny Mother: I’m Not Crazy earlier this month. The show took an introspective look into the daily life of the American mom, and was performed in conjunction with Mother’s Day at the Triad
Theatre in New York City.
“If you’ve ever gone unshowered for days, stayed up all night with a sick kid, fought your husband over who works harder, or had a kid pee on you, then this show — and vodka — are for you,” says Blizzard, Miss New Jersey 1995, in a media release. “Comedy is truly my calling. I can’t cook, I hate laundry and if I look at one more dirty dish I’m going to scream. The good news is now that I have kids — I have built-in writers.” For more on this story, click here.
