Looking for a great way to celebrate April Fools’ Day? Join The Alden in McLean as it presents the Good Humor Men for a single performance at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 1. Three of America’s funniest standup comedians join forces to showcase their original brand of humor in an evening packed with punch lines, clever writing and hair trigger laughs. Tickets are $30, $25 for students and seniors and $20 for MCC district residents.
The Good Humor Men stable of comics include Keith Alberstadt, Tony Deyo, Rob Haze, Pat Hazell, Andy Hendrickson, Moody McCarthy and Pat McGann. Performing at The Alden on April 1 will be Keith Alberstadt, Tony Deyo and Pat Hazell.
Keith Alberstadt has been climbing the comedy ladder for more than 10 years. Late night TV appearances, freelance writing, military tours in the Middle East–Alberstadt has done them all and continues to do so. He has appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “Last Comic Standing” and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” He has also written for “Saturday Night Live” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and has been on several tours for U.S. troops in the Middle East. With a playful personality that radiates onstage, Alberstadt grabs every audience with a genuine likability and a clever wit unmatched in the field today. Keith has four albums in rotation on Pandora and SiriusXM Radio. His latest, “Walk It Off,” ranked in the Top 10 comedy albums on iTunes.
Tony Deyo is a standup comedian known most notably for his sharp, quick material and near-perfect comedic timing, almost certainly gained from his years as a professional symphony musician. New York City’s Village Voice calls him “one of the tightest joke writers in the business.” In 2013, Deyo made his late night television debut on “Conan.” Within a year, he had added appearances on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” AXS TV’s “Gotham Comedy Live” and “Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen.” His latest album, “Comedy Road Trip,” landed on Billboard Magazine’s comedy chart and debuted as the #1 selling standup album on iTunes. With more than 50 standup clips available, he has steadily become one of the most prolific comedians on YouTube.
Showtime declared Pat Hazell one of the five funniest people in America. His 30 years of experience as a writer, producer and director have made him a go-to guy for new American theater. Hazell is one of the original writers for NBC’s Seinfeld, a veteran of The Tonight Show, a critically acclaimed playwright and a contributing commentator to National Public Radio. He is recognized for his genuinely funny Americana humor and his salute to nostalgia. As a playwright, his first endeavor, “Bunk Bed Brothers,” was optioned by Columbia Pictures, then gained the attention of the TV industry and was filmed as the sitcom, “American Pie,” for NBC. Hazell’s signature work, “The Wonder Bread Years,” a grand salute to the baby-boomer generation, aired on PBS where they referred to Hazell as “America’s foremost pop culture anthropologist.” Currently, the live theatrical tour of “The Wonder Bread Years” is enjoying success across the U.S.
