ASTORIA — Local comics take the stage at the Labor Temple Bar in a free show hosted by co-owner Terry Robinett, 7 p.m. Thursday, June 21. This show is for people 21 and older; no cover.

The show features Public Emily, Brian Lee, Chad Alan Gemma and Pete Birdeno.

“There’s a lot of great talent around here who have something to say,” Robinett said. “The inside, local jokes are the best.”

Robinett has been booking events for the Labor Temple Bar since she and her husband, Todd, purchased the iconic location in January 2018. Each month, they host “Cheap Whiskey and Dirty Jokes” featuring professional comics from around the Northwest. Robinett started reaching out to aspiring locals to open for CWDJ and decided they were worthy of a night of their own.

“I’ve been asked a lot for events that start earlier in the night, so folks who go to bed early can still get out and enjoy a show,” Robinett said. “In response, I’m adding early shows to Thursdays featuring solo acts, singer-songwriters and one designated night a month for local comics.”

Other weeks feature singer-songwriters Lucy Barna (Thursday, June 14) and Don Morrisroe (Thursday, June 28).
