Chris Clarke COURTESY BAY STREET THEATER
Joseph Vecsey COURTESY BAY STREET THEATER
Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor will host the return of Joseph Vecsey and All Star Comedy on Thursday, January 28, at 8 p.m. at baystreet.org. This online comedy showcase marks All Star Comedy’s 11th season with Bay Street, and the first time that stand-up will be performed at the theater since the space was closed in March 2020.
The return of All Star Comedy features comedians Chris Clarke, Brendan Sagalow and Aiko Tanaka, and is hosted by New York-based comedian Joseph Vecsey, who founded the stand-up comedy showcase in 2010. In that time, the series has been headlined by stand-up veterans and fresh faces alike, growing to become the East End’s premier live comedy series. Vecsey himself has been selected as one of Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch, has toured with Adam Sandler, David Spade and Rob Schneider, and has worked as co-producer on Sandler’s Netflix special, “100% Fresh.” He is also producer of Netflix’s “The Wrong Missy,” in which he stars.
The energetic comic with a vivid imagination, comedian Chris Clarke has cemented himself as one of the most enjoyable acts working today. His first national television appearance was on the 2013 revamped “Comic View,” hosted by Sommore. He now tours the country with veteran comedian Rob Schneider. Besides stand-up, Clarke has a popular YouTube channel, Csnacks, which has attracted more than 40 million views. His unique way of explaining the tastes of different snacks landed him a fast food commercial for Checkers and Rally, and also an hour special on the Cooking Channel called “Baby Got Snack.”
Prepubescent in both looks and attitude, Brendan Sagalow brings his naturally funny perspective across the country and to all the major elite clubs in Manhattan. Brendan has written for MTV’s “Joking Off,” and has been a featured guest on many Sirius XM shows, such as “The Erik Negal Show,” “The Check Spot Live” and “Bennington” on Raw Dog Radio. He was the winner of the 2015 New York Comedy Club Comedy Competition and was featured in The Rhode Island Comedy Festival, Skankfest NYC, and Red Clay Comedy Fest in Atlanta, Georgia. He can be heard every week on his podcast, “Garbage Days,” as well as on his Patreon show, “What’s The Scenario,” with comedians Mike Cannon and Mike Feeney.
Born in Tokyo, Japan, and wanting to pursue a career in acting, Aiko Tanaka came to the United States and studied theater. She has appeared in “Malcolm & Eddie,” “The Man Show,” “My Wife and Kids,” and “Howard Stern.” She has also appeared in a handful of music videos and feature-length films “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,” “Finishing the Game” and more. Recently she has done stand-up comedy and filmed for “Laughs” on Fox, and “Stand Up and Deliver” on Nuvo.
Tickets for the show are on sale now for $20 and can be purchased online, 24/7, at baystreet.org. This show is intended for mature audiences, ages 18 and up.
