A Monkey Off the Tracks

The Cheeky Monkey Coffeehouse in Stroudsburg, PA hosted a Comedy Night on Friday December 3rd presented by The Off Track Players. The comedy troupe featured local comedians Joseph Carnevale, Kevin Cronk, Penny Dee, Anthony DiSanto, Matt Duffin, and Tiffani Thompson who showcased their talents in a variety of sketches, monologues, and improvisational games which amused their audience. Audience members were invited to participate in this an other aspects of the show which enhanced the delight of experiencing it.

These games included one called, “ABC” in which a location was selected by the audience and each performer had to begin their sentence in alphabetical order in relation to where they were. Another game consisted of a member of the troupe stepping outside while the Audience selected the identity of a famous person he or she was to become when they re entered. It was up to the comedian to guess his or her identity after receiving a series of clues.

It was a fun night out and a great opportunity to hear some original work by local comics. The next Comedy Night at The Cheeky Monkey featuring The Off Track Players is scheduled for Friday January 14th beginning at 7pm.
