Mitch is a funny guy, but if you've ever seen him on tv, heard him on the radio (XM, Sirius), or listened one of his comedy CD's then you pretty much already know all of his jokes. He went for just over an hour, but a little less than halfway through, I could already tell he wasn't going to have any new material so that was a little bit of a letdown. It seemed pretty dated maybe a couple of years old. But it was still a pretty decent & inexpensive show for a Sunday night and we had a good time.
There was really no opening act per se, though you could technically count the emcee who did his own material for roughly 25 minutes. Only problem - I'd seen him emcee for someone else before so I knew every one of his jokes too! So the total show was an hour and a half which is about 20-30 minutes less than normal. But like I said we still had a good time.
About the venue, I like Brea Improv a little better than the Irvine one. The crowd is a bit more laid back and loose and it's a little less crowded / trendy. I think they moved this club since it seems to be in a different location than I remembered going to years ago, but it is definitely bigger too which is not bad, and had good sound. And of course don't forget the 2 drink (item... whatever) per person when you're figuring in the cost of your evening. If you've already eaten out and hadn't planned on it, then this could be a bummer for you.
Is that a sparkle in his eye or is he just confused? With his innocence and friendly demeanor, Mitch Fatel quickly engages the audience and then catches them off-guard with his mixture of mischievous dialog and off-color comments. While laughing at observations only Mitch can get away with, audiences we are left wondering if he truly understands what he just said!
Mitch has been showcasing his talent to rave reviews for the past 15 years. Since then, appreciative audiences and comedy executives have made the same observation about Mitch’s rise to stardom: “It’s just a matter of time.” Well, his time has come. After numerous spots on both the Late Show with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Mitch is quickly establishing himself as a comedic star. He is also one of the few comedians to have ever appeared on Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist twice. The Hollywood Reporter named Mitch as one of its best bets for future fame. Mitch is one of the most requested comedians on Sirius and XM satellite radio.
In 2006 he took home honors as “Best Comedian” at the prestigious HBO Aspen Comedy Festival and in April of 2007 his half-hour stand up special debuted on Comedy Central and was ranked #6 all time by viewers. Mitch’s’ DVD Magical debuted in September 2009. Catch this innovative comedian, clearly about to make the jump to bona fide superstar, while you still can.
