There are numerous particulates which define my summer spent. Time on the beach, crashing waves, boardwalk, frozen custard, night music with a pastoral view and setting aside time to laugh. If you take that time for laughing (and purist enjoyment) and find a riverboat right here in Jersey, throw in some dinner and drinks, and of course the humor of Mike Marino, then it becomes a slice of nirvana.

 

When I heard Mike is performing on a Riverboat, I thought “nice try” but I’m not going to Mississippi. But happy days. The  Riverboat is permanently (non-sailing) docked on the Raritan River in Perth Amboy. So Saturday July 30th becomes a comedy night to remember, Mike Marino, Jersey’s Bad Boy of Comedy along with the special humor of Pam DeButts and  101.5’s  Steve Trevelise and brought to you by Catch a Rising Star in Princeton. St. Charles Riverboat, dinner, drinks, comedy right here in New Jersey. I love it.

I’ve been a huge fan of Mike Marino for the last three years since I first met him at the Asbury Park Comedy Festival.  Why not; I love to laugh for 90 minutes straight each and every time I see him; it’s this stressful world we live in. Mike has a unique handle, a release and grasp of our world.

It’s funny, every time (which is several times a week) I go in to one of those convenience stores, some with those strange birds in their logo, and I pass by the computer station to order sandwiches, I stop, stare, smile and think of Mike Marino. And I know customers see me smiling and they must think I’m a little out there. But Mike makes me smile and laugh even when he’s in California, a few thousand miles away.

The genius of Marino’s humor is to take our modern (expletive omitted) lives and shove it under a comedic microscope.  And when you see him in concert, you get a chance to see the ‘Marino’ face; how he loves to laugh with the audience at his own humor; that genuineness and warmth draws us in and embraces. Even more than that, my being a comedic snob, countless times looking at Mike on stage, I can’t help but see Jack Benny, who had one of the greatest comedic facial expressions as well as incredible timing. Benny was Johnny Carson’s all-time favorite; Mike Marino’s expressions and timing is right there with Jack Benny.  His concerts are a happening especially when he’s back home in front of a Jersey audience.
