NEW BRITAIN – A local comedian from Hartford is hosting an upcoming Open Mic Night in the city.
Andre Shorter, who hosts a comedy show for the Red Room Grille in Meriden every Wednesday, will be hosting an open mic from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, April 19 at the New Britain Downtown District office. Shorter has performed at many comedy clubs in Connecticut and New York.
“One day I’ll be on a big stage, telling the greatest jokes of all time. Join me on my quest in the comedy world and tell a friend to tell a friend to support,” Shorter said on the event’s Facebook page.
The performance list fills quickly, so organizers suggest people arrive early. All vocalists, dancers, storytellers, poets, spoken word artists, hip hop acts and others are welcome. For more information on the event contact Adrian Elliott at 860-881-7801.
