Anyone seeking a howling good evening should check out the rollicking
fun at the new Comedy Night in Glendale. Last Saturday evening, four
stand-up comics entertained a small but lively crowd in the Marie
Callender’s banquet room.
The show opened with the antics of two local comedians, Sean
Robinson and Steve Mazan, who got the crowd rolling with some clever
observations about life here in the Southland. Mazan had us all
laughing about getting “lost in translation” while seeking the men’s
room at a Mexican restaurant.
Matt Weinhold, a seasoned gag man recently seen on Comedy Central,
then took us on a hilarious journey that got funnier and funnier as
the night progressed. He shifted between witty and sarcastic and soon
had the audience in a spastic uproar. His routine about being
mistaken for a gay man on a recent trip to San Francisco had everyone
convulsing in laughter.
The last act, comic Marc Ryan, made the most of his Louisiana
roots with redneck humor and clever interplay with the audience. He
relied on gags about a relationship gone sour, and when one of the
guys in the audience threw him a curve during a repartee, Ryan
handled it with hilarious aplomb.
A busy, young waiter kept the crowd supplied with drinks and
snacks and when the houselights finally came up, the audience
trickled out, laughing all the way to the parking lot.
