Headliner – Geno Bisconte,

Featuring Chip Chantry and our Emcee Josh Petrino

 

Geno has been described by fellow comics, (to his face at least), as a “fast talking wise guy…that you just have to love.” This five-year veteran of the Philly and DC circuit now brings his talents to the New York City club scene- but not before leaving his mark back home. Geno brings a resume that includes gigs as current spokesman for the Delaware Lottery, roles in several indie films shot in the Philadelphia area, and writer of a monthly humor column for entertainment magazines. His comedy focuses on the one thing he knows- his life or lack thereof. “I absolutely love what I do but I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Everyone’s life is unique to them, which is also the very thing that makes it odd to everyone else and, in the end, so comical. So feel free to laugh at me but in doing so, realize that you also laughing at yourself and everyone else, and I believe that’s the beauty of our individuality.” Geno adds that his true passion is making people smile whether it be through comedy, acting, or anything in between.

 

Chip Chantry is a Philadelphia-based comedian and writer. He was the winner of 2013’s Philly’s Phunniest Contest at Helium Comedy Club, where he is a regular performer. This follows Chip’s 2012 win as “Funniest Comedian” in Philadelphia’s annual Comedy Awards. Chip tours nationally, opening for acts such as Dave Chappelle, Bob Saget and Todd Glass. Besides standup, Chip has written and performed in a number of sketches, including his “Deck the Hall and Oates”, which VH1.com called “One of the best song parodies of the year”. He also wrote and produced the monthly late night-style talk show, FACETIME w/ CHIP CHANTRY at Helium Comedy Club, and the monthly comedy variety program, CHIP CHANTRY’S ONE-MAN SHOW (w/ special guests!), at the Philly Improv Theater.
