What happens when you give a man in his 40s a guitar, a microphone and a half-hour to kill? We’re about to find out.
Come down to Spotlight on Feb. 3 to see Mike Ciurzyski do what he does second best — he’s a dedicated teacher, people — and walk away singing his songs. Deidre Mollura, Erich Drexler, Angelia Petrillo and Mike Peters will be there to fill out a night of laughter in P.S.Y.C.H. 607’s Destined for Nothing.
Admission is $5 at the door and the bartenders will be slinging food and drinks all night. Get a good seat because this show’s one you don’t want to miss.
Mike Peters, who’s worked around New York and Pennsylvania, is a co-founder of P.S.Y.C.H. 607. Peters specializes in self-deprecating, observational humor. He’s a regular host at Matty B’s and Spotlight in Binghamton, has performed at the Funny Bone in Syracuse, the Greenwich Village Comedy Club in New York City and won the Utica Brews Laugh Contest.
Erich Drexler is one of the strongest comedians in the Scranton area. A founding member of StreetKar Comedy, Drexler has a sharp tongue and an odd mind with no boundaries. Together, they energize the crowds in any room he performs. Drexler is a regular host of the Open Mic Circus at The Keys in Scranton and is a favorite in Binghamton, probably because he visits sparingly.
Deidre Mollura is one of Ithaca’s strongest comedians. A co-founder of the Itha-ha comedy group, Mollura is a collector of oddities and a lover of the weird things in life — much to the audience’s amusement. Mollura performs all across New York and opened for Kevin Salisbury and Brian Barganier on their New York tour in the spring, including a stop at the Bundy Museum in Binghamton.
Nothing is off-limits for Angelia Petrillo, who’s everywhere around the Scranton area and has performed in New York City. Petrillo produces shows all over Scranton and won Matty B’s Roast Battle II. A founder of StreetKar Comedy, Petrillo combines heavy doses of self-loathing and her musical talent to keep the crowd laughing.
One third of the Binghamton Comedy Binge, Mike Ciurzynski combines a sharp wit, a punk rock attitude and three chords to please audiences wherever he goes. Ciurzynski is everywhere the Comedy Binge is: The Binghamton Comedy Crawl, Virgil’s at Tioga Downs and next — in your hearts.
