If you think that we have stopped or even slowed down, you aren’t paying attention! Our IT department has been preoccupied but the stand up comedy has never stopped. Every single member of the GIC team is performing as much as they possibly can.
We have a lot of big things coming up that we’d like to share (we’ll list it by person for ease):
Mike Keegan: Our Chief Officer of Adorability is one of ten comedians left in Treehouse Comedy’s contest for Funniest Comic on the East Coast. The next round of the contest is Friday, October 24th at Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino in Connecticut.
Hugh Murray: The other co-founder of GIC will be running GIC’s shows at The Vibe Lounge on Friday, October 24th at 8PM and November 22nd at 8PM. He will also be hosting McGuire’s Comedy Club’s 10:30PM showcase on 10/24/2014. Go to Hugh’s website for all of the show details. Hugh has also appeared on a podcast called Live from the Tank (click to listen).

There is a lot more coming. Be on the look out for some great things. We will try to keep you posted from here but if we miss something, check out our Facebook page: Get Involved Comedy.
Our 2nd installment of Get Involved Comedy Night hosted by Hugh Murray and Mike Keegan was recently featured in LIVE Magazine. The show was at The Brokerage Comedy Club, part of the Long Island Comedy scene owned by Governor’s Comedy. It was an awesome show that ran extra long yet everyone didn’t want the show to end. We started at 10:30pm and had three, count em, THREE headliners on the show. Two of which were not even planned they just came and supported the show. It was awesome. Big thanks to Dustin Chafin for closing out the show like a true gentleman, despite waiting 2 hours for his spot.

Get Involved Comedy likes to put together fundraisers for events to help out our community. We might seem like jerks, but deep down we like to do everything in our power to raise money for good causes. A recent fundraiser for Fairway Market that GIC’s Hugh Murray, Mike Keegan and especially Joe Mylonas put together will be featured on Verizon Fios’ Push Pause segment. The event was headlined by the super talented and hilarious Keith Anthony.

Here is the third installment of the Get Involved Comedy Show that is put together by our co-founders Hugh Murray and Mike Keegan. Other GIC members, Tony Landolfi, John Consoli, Kristen Florio, Jeff Schaeffer and Mike Calcagno will also be featured on the show. It is going to be closed out by one of the best headliners in the business, Richie Byrne. This is a show that you do not want to miss, even if we can’t spell Columbus.
Get Involved Comedy member John Consoli’s one man show “You Don’t Get To Wear That” is now in book form! Here is the book description:
What do the Mafia, the Federal Witness Protection Program, The Hell’s Angels and Santa Claus all have in common? They all figure prominently into the childhood of stand up comedian John Consoli. You Don’t Get to Wear That is an autobiographical whirlwind that reads like a Hollywood movie script. The core of the story is the author’s lifelong attempt to deal with his extremely dysfunctional family situation and up-bringing. The story is fast moving, tragic, hysterical and often un-believable.
Check it out and support one of the fastest rising and funniest comics in the industry.
