Original Zings

The Original Zings of Comedy, featuring extended stand-up sets, is at the Improv Boston every Thursday at 8. Pat Bocuzzi and Nat Towsen are the hosts.

From an interview in the Dig:


NT: A “zing”–also known as a “burn,” a “zap,” a “whammy” and a “good old-fashioned Texas skittlebump”–is an appropriation of a seemingly harmless first half of the sentence into an utterly degrading syntax.

Dig: UH … WHAT?

PB: Elton John called … he wants his sexuality back! Zing!

    Thanks for linking to us. You should come out to the show next week and I’ll tailor a joke to you.

    An example would be “Evan Kaufman, what is that, some kind of name? Zing!”
