To a packed house Reno Collier, easily recognizable from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour and the Comedy Central Roast of Larry The Cable Guy, was able to get the room going while Mike Fine who was first to go up paced in the wings waiting to hear his name being introduced. Once, his name was called, Mike took the stage to a very warm reception and wasted no time getting his first laugh. Mike’s set opened with him mentioning the disappointment of his Rabbi declining the invitation to attend the show, due to not like the language they use at some comedy shows in the city, like “cover charge” or “2 drink minimum”. After that, the next 8 minutes went by quickly, while Mike kept serving up sharp and hard hitting jokes one after the other. Watch Mike’s entire set below.
