Check out “Def Comedy Jam’s Hamburger does Worcester”
- Date: Friday, December 3 at 7pm
- Location: White Eagle, 116 Green Street, Worcester, MA 01604
Just another reason the Canal District is the most up and coming areas in the city. On December 3rd at The White Eagle Serenity Jones of Thick Chick Comedy and Unity Radio 97.9 FM will be bringing comedian Alonzo “Hamburger” Jones to Worcester.
Alonzo “Hamburger” Jones has been seen on Russel Simmons Def Comedy, BET’s Comic View, FOX’s Family Guy, Byron Allen Comic’s Unleashed and Showtime at the Apollo to name a few.
Alonzo “Hamburger Jones was known for always wearing a cowboy hat and made a name for himself as a catch phrase comedian in the early 90’s who would say “HAAAMMMMBBURRRRGGGEEERRR” in lieu of foul language. (which was extremely popular at the time) The stark contrast phrase “Hamburger” found itself embedded in urban culture because of the importance and reverence the Alonzo “Hamburger” Jones has in popular culture,
So popular that Kenan Thompson parodied Jones’s use of “Hamburger” with a fictional comedian cowboy at all called David “Beef Jelly” Winfield in Saturday Night Live reoccurring sketch Kings of Catch Phrase Comedy. Jones also in an episode of Fox’s Family Guy called “Scrammed Yankees” where a solider uses the “Hamburger” phrase while talking to hostages. Opie and Anthony dedicated a significant portion of a show discussing “catch phrase comedians” after recalling Jones’s routine. Artie Lange would frequently refer to Jones on his former podcast the Artie Quitter podcast.
This show will also include Latasha Hughes who has been dubbed your favorite neighborhood girl. Dale Cover opened for Michael Blackson last month at the Strand Theatre and is founder of The Quahog Comedy Circuit in Rhode Island. As well as myself Worcester’s Main Squeeze Thick Chick Comedy Serenity Jones host of Stand-Ups and Stand-Outs every Friday at 3PM on Unity Radio 97.9 FM.
In addition to comedy we will have a pre-show from 7-8 which will include local dancers Millzy Dance Fitness and De Ja Vu with their interpretation of classic pop lock street dance with a hint of Afro Beats. DJ Justyn Tyme will be on the 1’s and 2’s the entire night.
