The Radisson will play host to national comedian Greg Morton on Friday and this is not the first time he’s brought his act to Utica.
The Canadian comic best know for appearances on Comedy Central and several cartoons including Police Academy, once did a ‘Home Invasion’ comedy show at a home in East Utica, while appearing at Bill Keeler’s comedy club.
Morton, who is best known for his Star Wars routine where he does a lightening fast version of the epic film doing all the voices in just 2-minutes, performed a show at the East Utica home of Richard and Angie Biggs in 2003. Angie’s mother was unable to go to the show because of medical reasons so Morton took the show to her living room on Ontario Street. (Quite the irony, when you consider Greg grew up in Ontario, Canada.)
“It was amazing,” said Angie Biggs. “He was so funny and my mother loved it.” Morton says he plans to pay a visit to the Biggs residence this week during his stay in Utica.
Watch the episode below. Tickets for Friday’s show at the Radisson are available at the Utica Comedy website or by calling 520-8741. Tickets are $22.50 in advance and $28 at the door. The show also features profession comedian Nick Marra. The event is sponsored by First News with Keeler in the Morning on WIBX.
