    I had the great pleasure of seeing Mr. Greenidge last evening at the Trio Lounge Stand-Up Comedy Night. He was by far my favorite performer (though he didn’t seem to understand the lighting in the room). His humor was relatable and very well observed.

    I look forward to seeing him again, when he gets more than 10 minutes or so to entertain/amuse.

      Well thank you muchly!

      yes, I kept walking out of the lighting… I’m used to performing in much darker spaces. I wasn’t sure where to stand there.

      but I’m glad you liked it! If you like, I will add you to my comedy mailing list so you can stay updated on my latest appearances.
