A couple of weeks ago, Michael and I decided to check out Blue Ridge Country Club's comedy night, which is open to full-fledged members of the club as well as social members (a social membership is incredibly affordable at just $100 year, which gets you access to the restaurant and bar in the clubhouse and invitations to comedy nights, live music events, dances, wine tastings, etc.).
The night began with a delightful dinner buffet in the club's beautiful main dining area with its high-vaulted ceiling and stunning view of the course through the glass windows that surround the room. The self-serve buffet consisted of sliced tenderloin, jumbo lump crab cakes, chicken marsala, au grain potatoes, green beans and salad. Based on previous experience, I know the chef at Blue Ridge Country Club to be excellent, so I made sure to sample a little of everything from the buffet. Then servers dressed all in black and white brought us our dessert: mixed berries with pound cake and sabayon.
After a delicious dinner and dessert, my dad, also a member at Blue Ridge, introduced the comics for the night and the show began. We had great seats at a table directly in front of the stage. There were a total of three stand-up comedians from Comedy Blast which performs regularly around Lehigh Valley at various locations. All of them had us in stitches for most of the two-hour show - you should've heard them go on about the yuppiness of belonging to a club! My favorite had to be the blind comedian; even though he wasn't the headliner, he wasn't afraid to laugh as himself and use his disability to his advantage.
For $34 (plus tax and gratuity) per person, comedy night at Blue Ridge was an incredibly affordable way to let go of some stress. I mean, everyone needs a good laugh now and then, right?
Have you been to any comedy shows before? If so, where?
