New link -- the Reverend Tim McIntire in Boston. Tim's working out of my old writing partner Rick Jenkins' club The Comedy Studio in Harvard Square. Tim ran Geek Night, where they rolled a 20 sided die to determine who the next comic would be ... yes, they're that cool.
People going to see "alternative comedy" in LA don't really get a sense of what the term means elsewhere. Alternative comedy in LA tends to be Sarah Silverman in a tight shirt bitching about her latest sitcom role. Alternative comedy in Boston is Jonathan Katz working on his latest stuff, magic, sketch, head-to-head comedy battles in a quest for the "most offensive sentence. Ever." ... it's a great place. If you're in Boston, swing by the Studio.
