In his act, Joe List often refers to his own bouts of anxiety and insecurity; while these episodes aren’t useful to bricklayers or lawyers, List is, happily, a comedian, and these are excellent sources of material for stand-up.
The Boston born-and-raised comic has been in the game since he got out of high school (circa 2000), and, in addition to his years on the road, is a veteran of Last Comic Standing and Comedy Central. In 2011, a critic for Examiner.com wondered if “perhaps it’s his Masshole nature that makes him so enjoyable.”
Judging from his debut appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman earlier this month, it’s his jokes. The jokes were just plain funny.
Joe List will perform tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday (June 20-21) at 7:30 PM at the Comedy Works in Saratoga (388 Broadway, Saratoga Springs). Tickets are $20 the days of the show. For info about the dinner-and-show package, call the club at 275-6897.
