“My father was a professional athlete,” says comic Alex Kohl with a delivery as droll as his material is bizarre. “He played piñata for 20 years.” As for the exploding piñata that took his dad’s life, “he never saw it coming… he was blindfolded.”
A national act from that Bay Area with Comedy Central gigs on his growing resume, Kohl headlines a night of comedy on Saturday, February 23. Torio Van Grol hosts. Shows at 6 and 9 p.m. $20, includes one drink. Murphy’s Irish Pub, 464 First St. E. 548.1225.
