About Comedy Night with Griffin Sciarra

Griffin Sciarra bumbles through breakups, muggings, firings, and more in this hilarious storytelling show.  Straight from the pages of his cheese-stained diary, the Hoosier native explores how to: leave your job as a janitor at the zoo, have a bad date in Venice, and talk your way out of a mugging. The comedian plucks stories from his darkest, silliest, and most surreal moments of the year for an hour of laughs. Mild adult language/topics.


Review:  Five Stars!

“His humorous anecdotes about his grandad, past odd jobs, and childhood friends are fresh and original, making the performance feel less like a staged show and more like an evening spent with a hilarious friend. ‘Diary of a Wimpy Comedian’ is a unique blend of comedy and storytelling, underscoring Griffin Sciarra as a young comedian to watch. Be sure not to miss this delightful, humorous journey!
