Have a heaping side of laughter

Jeff Klemzak

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.
