The Comedy Works Bristol (located inside Georgine’s Restaurant) presents a special Friday Night “Laugh-Filled Comedy Show” November 25, 2022 at 8 PM. The show will feature the Legendary Wid, and John Kensil with a special guest Comedian, Steve Rinaldi.
The Legendary WID who is one of the most clever prop comedians in the business. The WID originally started downtown at the original Comedy Works above the Middle East Restaurant on Chestnut St back in the 80’s. He went national playing some of the best Comedy Clubs across the Country.
The Wid is known and respected nationwide among comic circles. He’s performed with some of the greatest comedians over the past 40 years including Kevin Hart in his early days in Philadelphia.
In fact Steve Young (original owner of the Comedy Works downtown) tells a story about the Legendary Wid just finishing his set, at the Improv in LA during the 1980’s. Young was standing backstage next to the Comedian who was next up who remarked outload, “How do you follow that!” That comedian was Robin Williams who looked amazed at the Wid’s delivery. Wid was the best prop comedian ever, maybe still is," says Young who now is back to doing Comedy himself in the Philadelphia market.
After all these years, the Wid still has his props and puns that he totes to every show. He’s a collector of all things that most people have thrown away and after he is done performing he leaves the stage covered with hundreds of items many would consider junk or trash. A toilet seat, a plastic cow, a stuffed snake, octopus, lion, penguin, donkey, baseball home plate, an oar, swim fin, hula hoops, dolls, toys, you name it, he has it and a pun to make you laugh.
He can make a pun for almost any item including your favorite movie or song. That’s why the WID is legendary!
Also on the show will be Philadelphia favorite John Kensil who talks about growing up in Philadelphia and family stories that everyone can relate to.
Also appearing will be a special guest MC/Host to start the show along with South Philadelphia’s Steve Rinaldi stopping in to make you laugh.
