An Evening with Barry Crimmins at the UnClub
Comedian, author, political satirist, renowned political activist, and the subject of this year's hit documentary, "Call Me Lucky," winner of the Audience Award at Cinetopia last June, Barry Crimmins is coming to the Yellow Barn on Sunday, October 4th.
FREE PARKING in front of the theater. (The Yellow Barn does not face Huron Street. Turn into the parking lot immediately west of the train overpass and drive to the rear of the lot.)
Before this astounding documentary introduced him to the rest of the world, the comedy world knew this former Air America Radio writer and correspondent as the man who helped foster the Boston Comedy scene in the 80s, which grew to create the comedy boom of the late 20th century. He founded two of Boston's most fabled clubs: The Ding Ho and Stitches. Such acts as Steven Wright, Paula Poundstone, Bobcat Goldthwait, Tom Kenny, Kevin Meaney, Jimmy Tingle, Dana Gould, and many, many others cut their comedic teeth in the rooms Crimmins started and at shows he produced.
He has made countless television appearances on everything from The NBC Nightly News to The HBO Young Comedians Special to The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. He has recorded two CD's: Strange Bedfellows on A&M and Kill the Messenger on Green Linnet. His writings appear regularly in the Boston Phoenix as well as several other publications. He was a staff writer for the syndicated Dennis Miller Show and has toured in performance with Billy Bragg, Jackson Browne, Utah Phillips, Michelle Shocked, Steven Wright, Dar Williams and numerous others.
This will be a very special night for the UnClub and the Yellow Barn. Please join us.
