Political comedian Scott Blakeman is back to deliver laughs to Island crowds for his third summer this Saturday, Sept. 1.
Mr. Blakeman specializes in humor from a liberal Jewish point of view — his words. He has been featured on MSNBC’s live coverage of the White House Correspondents Dinner and also appears regularly on the live webcast Fox News.com Live. He is an original member of the New York-based political comedy show, Laughing Liberally, and is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post.
Although based in New York city, Mr. Blakeman has performed around the world, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, and the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam, the last being perhaps an odd place for laughs, but it underscores that this comedian knows no boundaries, in the best sense, that is.
The show begins at 8 p.m. at the Grange Hall in West Tisbury.
Tickets $25 and are available online at brownpapertickets.com/event/261146, and at the door starting one hour before showtime.
