Catch a rising star

LADIES NIGHT Judge is starting up a tongue in cheek fashionista comedy show, with fellow funny lady Bethany Van Delft.  “It'll be comedy, variety, and fabulosity. We were inspired by the crowds at the "Sex and the City" movie who were clearly just dying to strut their fun clothes. We plan to give them a hilarious and fun excuse to be fantastic.”

VIDEO: Lamont Price at the Comedy Studio

If working your ass off is any indication, then Lamont Price should be ridiculously famous. In the past few years, he’s become a fixture on the local scene, opened for Gary Gulman, Rich Vos, and Dane Cook, appeared in the independent film Overserved (2004), and, more recently, begun to produce a series of shows at Sweetwater Café. The next one, “A Dark Nite: Return Of The Jokerz”, stirs shit up on October 15.

BOSTON DEBUT “The Comedy Studio, February 27, 1997. You don’t forget your first time.”

REALITY CHECK “I was 17 when I started, and at one of my first shows, I had a lot of friends show up, plus some girls that I knew. I’m peacocking through the club, like, ‘I’m ready.’  But man, it was ugly.  When I got off the stage, to the left of the stage was a table full of special needs kids.  One of them stood up and shook my hand and said, ‘hey man, you were funny’, and it was so obvious that that was a kid who, for once, saw somebody who was worse off than him.  At that moment, I thought, ‘this is as bad as it can get, so what am I worrying about?’”

IN YOUR FACE “Shy?  I get up on stage in front of people that don’t love me, so why would I be shy?”

    We have a chub for Andy Barker, P.I. (just released out on DVD), because we have a major chub for the show’s star, Andy Richter. Richter plays an accountant who is mistaken for a detective-for-hire and decides to just roll with it.

    If only there were some way to watch a con-artist houseboy give his cougar sugar mama a squirming reach-around, charm the pants off a candy-necklace string of countless empty-eyed Hollywood stick figures, lose his heart to an untouchable social chameleon, and, in the process, find himself .

    While New York is grittier, Los Angeles juicier, and Boston is wicked smahter, for some odd reason it is Montreal that, for two weeks every summer, becomes the epicenter of the comedy universe.

    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other. Instead, I find myself struggling to balance my beer between my knees and my overstocked paper plate on my thigh as I furiously poke at my BlackBerry.
