Comedy is in Their Blood
By Linnet E. Carty
Hartford – Tony Rock brought the house down at the Funny Bone comedy club in Hartford, this past weekend. I’ve said it before, you know the four things you don’t do at a comedy show,
- Don’t wear something crazy,
- Don’t heckle the comic,
- Don’t come late and
- Don’t use the restroom during the show.
Why did two women break rule number 3 and had seats right up front. Put it this way, they won’t ever be late again. Tony worked them and the rest of the room including our table, like a boxing ring, pouncing on audience members then slipping back into his routine.
He talked Black folks, white folks, work, relationships, church and a little politics and just like his big brother, Chris Rock, he showed comedy, is truly in their blood.
