Pin It


I'll admit that musical comedy can be a hard sell to fans of both individual genres. If a person is really good at an instrument, why do they need to be funny? If someone is really funny, why bother with an instrument? All are valid questions I myself have made at one time or another, but former Irondequoit (now based out of Chicago) musical comedian Matt Griffo manages to do what few musical comedians are able to: write songs that are, you know, good, but also funny at the same time. He uses the music and humor together to enhance, not distract, from either piece of this delightful, and enjoyable, performance puzzle.

Matt Griffo performs Saturday, December 22, 7:30 p.m. at The Space in the Hungerford Building, 1115 E. Main St. #248. $10. 209-0734,
