Not your average stand up - wish there were more from Bogosian
28 February 2019 | by wavecat13See all my reviews

A series of manic, ironic, stand up comedy numbers by Bogosian, performed in a black box theater. The camera work and editing looks amateurish at times. I am disappointed that there is not more solo Bogosian out on video - he is a lot of fun, and smarter than your average comedian.
