June 14-15 – Johnny Watson
Also featuring Chip Ambrogio & Alex Batcha
Johnny Watson is a nationally headlining comic whose star is on the rise. He’s earning a reputation as clean and clever with the charm of “the boy next door”. Except that you wouldn’t want to be his neighbor growing up… Watson, a kid from a dysfunctional home lived in some of New Jersey’s seedier neighborhoods with his two brothers and two sisters. He learned to use his razor sharp wit to survive. “I was the poor kid on free lunch who always got my balls busted so since I couldn’t really fight, I had to be funny.” He started drinking when he was five years old and kept on going until high school, (“I was burned out from drinking by the time I got into high school, so I became the designated driver before they had designated drivers,” he says). After briefly attending college in California, Johnny joined the Navy. Once he got out, he turned to comedy as a full-time profession (his grandmother implored him to become a comedian because “you can’t do anything else right”) And so… a comedy career was born. Since then Johnny has taken life’s lemons and turned them into lemonade which he freely shares with his fans! And coast to coast, They Love It! You’ve seen Johnny at some of the biggest Comedy Clubs in the country and he has also been seen on TV, (most notably Saturday Night Live and Good Morning America and in a host of independent films and theater productions. Now you can see him perform, live, at The Comedy Cove this Saturday Night.
