Human Explosive Comedy Show

July 2, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$8

During the first three years of her life, Comedian Gab Bonesso played video games and “pretend” in Michael’s Lounge (a well-known watering hole in McKees Rocks).

Toddler Gab wasn’t a bar-hopper, her parents: Beanie and Starr just happened to own the joint.

Now, many moons later, Gab Bonesso is “playing” in McKees Rocks one more time.

On Saturday, July 2nd at 8pm Gab Bonesso will headline the Parkway Theater in her very first HOMETOWN COMEDY SHOW.

Gab’s opening act is KDKA’s John McIntire who is well-known for his biting political comedy and his unapologetic nature.

Also joining Gab is well-known comedian and author of the book “Below Average Genius”: Michael Buzzelli who will be performing a guest set.

The tickets are $8!

The show is 21 and over.
