COMIC NICK DI PAOLO TO PERFORM at BROOK ARTS CENTER

March 2 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
NJ United States + Google Map
$25

Nick Di Paolo, one of the few right-leaning stand-up comedians in our country and host of the Nick Di Paolo podcast, and a feature performer on The Comedy Central Roasts, The Tonight Show & Louis CK’s “Louie ”brings his world-class stand-up comedy to The Brook Arts Center in Bound Brook at 8pm on March 2nd. In this day of watered-down comedy Nick Di Paolo's brutally honest performances remind us of what great stand up should be -funny, socially relevant and a little bit reckless. While 95% of stand-up comedians are liberal, Nick leans the other way and is unafraid and unapologetic. Opening the show will be Steve Trevelise who in addition to his stand-up comedy shows can be heard talking Jersey on New Jersey 101.5 or sports on Sports radio 94 WIP. Nick Di Paolo strong political opinions and razor wit make him a perfect fit for talk radio. He hosted his own show on New York’s 92.3 Free FM, co-hosted “The Nick & Artie Show” and presently hosts “The Nick Di Paolo Podcast”. He has performed on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Conan O’ Brien. He was twice nominated for an Emmy Learn More ...
