Humor for Humanity: Jimmy Tingle in the age of Trump
Jimmy Tingle pulled no punches on Trump during stand-up routine
Stand-up comedy, social justice and politics mingled in a tasty brew last Friday night at Sanders Theatre in Harvard Square, where renowned Cambridge-born comic Jimmy Tingle presented his one-man show.
“Mr. Tingle brings so much energy and personal warmth to this nonstop performance that one comes away from it strangely uplifted. He reveals often mortifying absurdities in virtually everything that comes to his attention… Yet he is so cheerfully intelligent that he makes his audience optimistic in the face of appalling reality.”
“If Robert De Niro had decided to be a comedian, he might have come out something like Tingle, with his off-center smile, blue-collar physicality and exquisite sense of timing.” “There isn’t a lot of sense out there these days. Jimmy Tingle’s sense, and sense of humor, is indeed uncommon…”
“No Cheap Shots, Just “Sense.” Jimmy Tingle’s one-man show doesn’t capitalize on political crisis. Instead his uplifting Uncommon Sense draws honest laughs.”
“Uncommonly Good !!!”
