Comedians for the Evening:
Irene has been doing comedy all over the state and country for the past 8 years. Her comedy is what she politely refers to as “comedy noir”. Accused of being “unlady like,” Irene retorts with “my mother didnt raise me to be polite, she raised me to be right! I aint no lady but im a hellava gal! ” She is dauntless with a flair for rebellion which she attributes to being a sagittarius. Her comedy is a compellation of her Greek upbringing with an autistic brother, political & topical satire, gossip, rants, very intimate details of her personal life and everyday observational humor. If you’re thinking it…she says it, AND gets away with it!! Credits and appearances include Stonewall – the Tom Ragu, New York Underground Festival, Laugh Lounge, Trends Comedy Club, Caroline’s, Stand-Up NY, Boston Comedy and more!
