10X10 Upstreet Arts Festival

Will Call Episode #55.9, BONUS: Laughter Is Art at the 10X10 Comedy Show!

The 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival returns to Dottie’s in 2017!

You’re listening to micro-episode 55.9, in which I have speak with very special guest Tom Attila Lewis about the 10X10 Comedy Show. Are you anxious to find out if I managed to keep this episode to ten minutes? Spoiler alert: I missed it by 200 percent. Oh well.

Tom was such an awesome guest with so many great insights on the event, comedy in the Berkshires, and the artform itself, that I had a feeling this would end up almost being a full-length show. So I won’t add any more to the overrun and instead I’ll launch us into our conversation with Tom Attila Lewis here on Will Call at the Greylock Glass.

Saturday, February 25, 2017
Dottie’s Coffee Lounge
444 North Street, Pittsfield

Tickets for the show are $10 in advance at the Dottie’s service counter, wait until the day of the show and you will pay $15.

Dottie’s will again be offering amazing food and drinks, seating for a special dinner designed for the show begins at 7:00 p.m., but make sure you get there early so that you can reserve a good spot near the stage!

The headliner this year is Mike Lebovitz who has appeared on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” performed at the world-famous Just For Laughs Festival, and at festivals and venues across North America! Starting off our show with some musical entertainment during the dinner hour will be Ragliacci Rags. The show will also feature guest spots from Berkshire-based Alyssa Sequioa and Ryan Shea!
