Fire Company Holding Comedy Night on Oct. 21
The Barnegat Volunteer Fire Co. presents a comedy night featuring Paul Venier on Friday, Oct. 21 at the firehouse on Birdsall Street. Doors open at 6:30; show starts at 7:30.
Venier began his career as an entertainer in the 1970s when he was with a Long Island-based band known as Stark Naked. Later that decade, he played in various bands that were featured at numerous Jersey Shore venues.
In the early 1980s, Venier veered to standup comedy, where he incorporated music into his routines, using the piano and guitar.
“I have been called the King of Fundraisers by many and that is because 95 percent of my shows are fundraising events,” he said.
Tickets are $20 per person in advance and $25 at the door. For a reservation, call Janice Deisler at 609-698-4698. —E.E.
