Eight comedians delivered big laughs on Aug. 22, 2017 in Waterfront Park, as North Bergen and Guttenberg teamed up for a night of standup comedy. Residents and guests kicked back in the amphitheater alongside the river facing New York City as the sun went down and the comics cut loose.
With extensive experience on various TV shows and in clubs across the country, the lineup for the night included comedians Gregory Korostishevsky, Joan Alter Weisblatt, Aaron Decker, Joe Rimatello, Brett Druck, and host Dave Durkin.
The show concluded with sets by North Bergen resident comics Josh Wells and Janet Regensburg delivering a collection of twisted and humorous observations. A DJ spiced up the proceedings by getting audience members singing and dancing before and after the comedy.
The free show was jointly sponsored by Mayor Nicholas Sacco and the North Bergen Commissioners, and Mayor Gerald Drasheff and the Guttenberg Council. Waterfront Park is jointly owned and maintained by both municipalities.
The next event scheduled for Waterfront Park is a freestyle concert featuring popular, nationally known musicians on Friday, Sept. 22.
