North Adams, MA - On Saturday, July 11th, the Redroom, Main Street Stage’s popular cabaret series will feature Rick Conety, an Albany-based stand-up comedian. Make your way to 57 Main Street, North Adams, for an evening of mingling, sketching, performance and surprises. Doors open at 8 PM for life drawing and light refreshment. The locally written and produced show will start at 9. Every Redroom is a new show and a great deal--$10.00 covers an entire night’s worth of entertainment. Contact Kelli at 413-664-7745 for more information, or find us on Facebook or the web (www.theredroomna.com). All Redrooms contain mature themes and language.
Rick Conety has performed at many locations in Northeast, New York and New York City, including performing at Saratoga's "First Night" New Year's Eve celebration and in front of college and club audiences.
Tired of all the toilet humor that he heard at open mics, Rick decided to build his act around the funny things that happen in every day life. “When you find out your parents are getting a divorce after 35 years of marriage the same day you were told at work you won’t get that raise you’ve been expecting, and some jerk put a dent in your car while you were in the market, and on top of everything else, you’re coming down with a really nasty cold, you just have to laugh.” His website address is www.conetycomedy.com.
The Redroom was rated at 5 out of 5 by the Berkshire Eagle’s “Region After Dark.” It is an artists' playground where genre lines don’t matter. One audience member called it something you’d see in someone’s basement in Greenwich Village during the 1960’s. From 8-9 enjoy a glass of wine, mingle with the cast and other guests while a live model poses in the window. Bring your own art supplies or use the ones we provided. At 9, the variety show begins, full of readings, original skits and plays, improvisational rap, dance, local musicians and anything else we can get our hands on.
