"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Bob Rumba- Ventriloquist, Comedian, Balloon Artist and All Around Funny Guy

His card states COMIC GENIUS*

and the asterisk below statement says *Genius Available by Appointment Only.  

When Steve and I were downtown at the Gallery Crawl a couple of weeks ago, we were walking  in front of the new Arcade Comedy Theater.   Kristy was out front distributing info and invited us in. I told her my daughter Laura was taking an improv class in Columbus.

Free beer!  Hmmm.  Steve thought that sounded good.  There was improv going on in the theatre.  Lots of good energy in the place.

We promised to return another time when we didn’t have to be somewhere.

We were on our way home but with the free beer and the man in the window motioning for us to come in, too, what else could we do?Just a few minutes.

Turns out it was Bob Rumba, All Around Funny Guy.

  3. I thought that was always the case: (Apple) geniuses are only ever available by appointment only. 🙂
