Two comics to perform stand-up each month at Maggie Mae’s, first show tonight

Two comics are bringing stand-up to Sunnyside performing each month at Maggie Mae’s.

Cory Jarvis, a Sunnyside resident who has performed at several festivals, and Brian Jian, a comedian from Manhattan, will be putting on a show on the first Thursday of every month in the downstairs space at Maggie Mae’s (41-15 Queens Blvd).

The shows are free and run from 8:00pm to 9:30pm. The first show is tonight.

Each month five or six comics will perform.

Jarvis said that a lot of Sunnyside residents are interested in stand-up and residents will no longer need leave the neighborhood see quality performers.

“You can to Manhattan or go a few steps around the corner and avoid the drunk Mets fans on the 7 train,” he said.

Yeah, because the best place to avoid drunks is a bar.

I hope his jokes are better than that.

I assume Jarvis was making a joke regarding drunk mets fans. Pretty lame. His stand up material must really suck.

I’ve been on 4 trains with drunken Yankee fans (back in the late 90s) and it was truly horrible, going there AND coming home. I’ve never had a bad experience on the 7 train- Mets fans are nice, attractive, and well-behaved. I can’t even recall seeing anyone that was drunk!

Still, if a comedian wants to make a joke about it, no big deal. As a Mets fan, I’m pretty tolerant.
