One of New Jersey’s leading comedy clubs, The Stress Factory in New Brunswick, has booked Jessica Kirson for three stand-up shows on its outdoor patio, this weekend. They are scheduled for June 26 at 8 p.m. and June 27 at 7:30 and 9:45 p.m.
For information, visit the club’s website, newbrunswick.stressfactory.com. Attendees must be at least 16 years old.
According to the website, social distancing guidelines will be followed, and attendees must wear a mask.
The Stress Factory is, as far as I know, the first New Jersey nightclub to offer comedy shows since the pandemic began.
The club, which is owned by comedian Vinnie Brand, is also presenting outdoor shows at its other location, in Bridgeport, Conn. For information, visit bridgeport.stressfactory.com.
Here is a clip of Kirson performing on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” last year:
