Stand up comedy

Dec 6, 2013

Stand up comedy performed by local people you know –  with Eddie Sarfaty as MC.

Sarfaty is excited to be returning to the Red Barn, and the Red Barn is thrilled to have him back.  His previous workshops at the theater in 2007 and 2010 were huge successes, providing an unlikely assortment of comic wannabees the opportunity to experience comedy from the other side of the microphone before a packed house.  Some of your favorite locals took the course  — you may have noticed how funny they have become!

Huffington Post called him a “comedic genius.” Bay Windows said “Polished and sure-fire with the one-liners ricocheting off the walls!”

Eddie Sarfaty has been featured at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival and appeared on The Today Show, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, Logo’s stand-up show, Wisecrack, The Joy Behar Show and is one of the subjects of the documentary, Laughing Matters.  He is on the faculty of The Theatre Lab in Washington, DC and New York University where he teaches workshops on comedy writing and performing.   He is the author of a collection of comic essays entitled Mental: Funny in the Head and is currently at work on his first novel.  See more about the comedian at


After five session of coaching, Sarfaty’s students take the stage in a culminating performance on Dec. 6

Tickets are available here and at Red Barn Theatre box office at 305-296-9911, 319 Rear Duval Street.
