Beachfront Comedy this Thursday!

Hey! Guess who has two thumbs and hasn’t updated his blog in awhile???

No. It was me. I haven’t.

Anyway, it’s been a crazy few weeks with apartment moving, computer crashes, further unrest in the Mid-East, but I’m back to tell you about…

The inaugural night of BEACHFRONT COMEDY @ CHARLEY’S OCEAN GRILL!!! For only $10 and a one drink minimum you’ll get two hours of live stand-up from some of the best up-and-coming comics in NY & NJ. Let’s face it, you’re gonna spend more than that going to the movies, and you probably won’t laugh as hard. You also won’t get to go to the movies in a few years and say, “Hey! I saw that guy perform at a restaurant in Long Branch!”

It’s gonna be a great night in a great atmosphere: the upstairs room at Charley’s overlooking the ocean. I’m really looking forward to it, and hope to see as many of you there as possible. And, none of this “But, it’s a school/work night!” crap. The show will be over by 11pm. Man up.

Here’s the details:


Thu 03/24, 9pm @ Charley’s Ocean Grill – 29 Avenel Blvd, Long Branch, NJ

$10 admission + 1 drink minimum



Hosted by… Craig Mahoney

For reservations, call Charley’s @ 732-222-4499



Craft Brewed Comedy this Sunday!

Hey, kids! I couldn’t be more excited about this. I’m hosting and producing my first stand-up show in a decade, which is also doubling as the first stand-up show in Long Branch in years, and it’s gonna be a GOOD one. All the comics on the bill are some of the funniest young stand-ups on the NY/NJ comedy scene. You can say you saw them before they were famous. We’ll also be having specials and giveaways from the Jersey Shore’s own Beach Haus beer!

The Red Bank/Long Branch/Asbury Park area of the Jersey Shore is known for all sorts of great arts and entertainment, but has almost nothing in the way of good, live comedy. In the coming months, that’s all gonna change. So, come spend your President’s Day weekend at Jack’s Goal Line Stand in Long Branch, and say you were there at the start of it all.

Podcast ep. 62 – Playing Hurt

On today’s show Craig tells the story of how he screwed up his pretty little face and whines about his cold before playing some killer tracks from Jersey Shore musicians Matt Wade and Status Green. There’s also some talk about Segways, Katy Perry’s Elmolicious tits, Boardwalk Empire, The Venture Bros, the Yankees, Giants and Nets sub-par weekend, and why Jets fans may not be shutting up anytime soon.
