Join us for Laughs in the Loft, a monthly series featuring stand-up comics from our own backyard, Brooklyn and beyond. You never know who might drop in!
Each Laughs in the Loft event features several comedians in a New York City-style showcase. The talent is announced approximately two weeks prior to each show.
Grab your friends or set up a date night for what Baristanet calls
“A comedy cure for the midweek blues”
Intended for mature audiences. Recommended for ages 18 and up.
Lineup up for Wednesday, September 7
Ian Lara – Ian has had his own special on Comedy Central, has been featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and was on the first season of NBC’s Bring the Funny!
Keith Alberstadt – Ketih is one of the best joke writers working today! He has written for SNL’s Weekend Update and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He has also appeared on almost every late night talk show including Letterman, Colbert and Seth Meyers.
Aaron Kominos-Smith – Aaron has been seen on FOX and Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central.
April Tinari – April is thrilled to be making her Laughs in the Loft debut! A New Jersey native and teacher at South Orange’s Marshall Elementary School, April has performed with MAPSOSoFUNNY’s Women of SOMA, and in The Mom Show and The Mom Show II at The Woodland. When not on stage or in the classroom, April enjoys eating the ORIGINAL and best Sloppy Joe sandwiches from Town Hall, playing the ukulele, and depriving her senses at the nearest float spa.
Joe is a comedian, husband and father – the former makes the latter well….interesting.
When Joe met his now wife she loved how much he made her laugh. He warned her that while she finds it cute now, she may feel differently when he is unable to do anything but joke during the heat of an argument. As his wife eventually found out “you’re funny all the time!” can quickly turn into “Does everything have to be a joke?”
Perhaps it’s not his fault, Joe is after all a second generation comedian. Much to his parent’s dismay at the age of twenty, Joe went into the family business. Straight away he was chosen College Comedian of the Year at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and shortly after he made the move to New York City where he paid his dues at any club that would give him the mic.
Joe has been on stage at some of the best rooms in the city including the famed Caroline’s On Broadway and Gotham Comedy Club. He was nominated “Best Up-And-Coming Comedian” at the NYC MAC Awards, was a finalist in both the prestigious Johnny Carson Great American Comedy Festival and Boston Comedy Festival and was part of the feature film Stand Up 360. Joe has also been seen on Gotham Comedy Live, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” “Laughs” on FOX, the Tonight Show’s Laugh Squad and the Speed Channel. On radio he is a repeat guest on Bob and Tom and the Bennington Show.
Pre-pandemic Joe Larson had one of the hottest shows in Brooklyn. Sold out each time to standing room only, his show “Couleur Comedy” was a huge success. It brought together the hottest up-and-coming comedians with established pros for a dynamic and exciting evening. Now, a South Orange resident, Joe is bringing his show to SOPAC.
