Bringing Down da "Great House" 

Wednesday, Aug 1 2012

People react to turning 30 in different ways -- denial, regression, despair. Cobb’s Comedy Club enters its 30-year anniversary like a witless divorcee chucking aside convention for a year-long exploration on training wheels. The anniversary conquests lined up fall into two inevitable categories: the industry’s old standbys and hotter, younger acts. The latest arm candy, Jay Pharoah, returns to the club after a year hiatus. Pharoah is a talented performer and impressionist whose cadre of celebrity impersonations includes Jay-Z, Denzel Washington, Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, and Barack Obama. The comedian is currently a featured player on Saturday Night Live and one of the show’s youngest cast members. Given the recent departures of Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig (and rumors of Jason Sudeikis following suit), Pharoah is slated to make an even bigger splash in the show’s upcoming 38th season. Catch the laughmaster while he's still booking the smaller venues.
