Comedian Ed Smyth
HONESDALE, PA - Head to Honesdale for Second Saturday on February 9. At The Cooperage we have a silly and fun night planned with comedian Ed Smyth who is sure to bring out the laughs in all of us. Young and old this is a show for all. The show starts at 8 p.m. and this performance is free and open to the public.

Absurd and silly comedian-performer Ed Smyth weaves a geeky fabric of twisted topics and silly micro-sketches: warped historical moments; Wally the Happy Talking
Neutrino; Oog Son of Ahg,
a Neanderthal with a primitive folk song/magic/juggling/and retro Tom Jones act; a fresh dairy products sea chanty; “Lenin Live In Vegas”; kazoo heavy metal songs; a Bronx gangster-movie version of Snow White; a funk-o-licious pickle jar song; World of Micro Fun; world's fastest live reading of “Moby Dick”; and more.
It's an act that's both intelligence-friendly for adults and family-friendly for language. Audiences have described him as a sort of one-man vaudeville-like act for grown-ups with a silly streak. Ed performs his “Geek Comedy Hour” regularly in coffeehouses, performance spaces, and art venues throughout the northeast. This event is supported by the Villaume Foundation.
