Jersey Jokers Thursdays brings top comics and laughs to Asbury
The summer promises to be funny now that the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park has announced a monthly comedy show. The last Thursday of every month will bring great headliners and laughter to the historic venue. The seminal show will be hosted by Jersey Jokers own, Chris Covert and features Asbury Park native, Kevin Israel, with the Howard Stern Show’s Reverend Bob Levy headlining.
“We’re really excited that the Wonder Bar agreed to host this monthly event,” said Kevin Israel, a local comic who has performed all over the country and been featured on XM/Sirius Radio’s RawDog comedy channel. “Asbury has a long history of arts and entertainment, a successful comedy show is a natural extension of that history.”
“We are very pleased to be chosen as the venue for Jersey Jokers Thursdays,” said Debbie DeLisa, Manager of the Wonder Bar. “We feel this will be a welcome addition to The Wonder Bar Schedule! “
Jersey Jokers is New Jersey based comedy production company that has been producing shows throughout the state.
“The Jersey Jokers brand is a great fit with a location like the Wonder Bar,” Chris Covert, president of Jersey Jokers, explained. “This is going to be an epic summer for comedy at the shore and Asbury will be front and center. We hope to make this show a standard part of people’s summer social calendar.”
“The time is right to introduce a monthly Comedy Night to Asbury Park,” DeLisa added. “The people of The Jersey Shore are ready to ‘lighten up’ after a long and destructive fall and winter.
Kevin Israel and Chris Covert have put together a series of great shows and we are really looking
forward to working with them!!!”
