Hey YOU!, Yeah YOU, Shut Up Sit Down & Eat! The Only Cure for @ItalianInsanity #Theatre #Comedy


For my New York City Based Butterflies (or those who plan to visit here for the holidays this year), who want to inject some laughter and levity into your Sunday and start off your week right, check out 'SHUT UP SIT DOWN & EAT'!

Four of New York City's most sought-after stand-up comedians bring the hit comedy Off-Broadway after their sold-out performances at The Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City and are now at The Anne L. Bernstein Theater at The Snapple Theatre Center in Manhattan, and after seeing it for myself I can certainly see why this 'PLOMEDY' was nominated by the Off-Broadway Alliance for "Best Unique Theatrical Experience of 2014"!

And because I know you are thinking it, as defined in 'The Urban Dictionary', a 'PLOMEDY' is a new theatrical event that blends the wit of stand-up comedy and the intensity of a one-man (or one woman) show presented in an innovative play format by professional comedians.


The Plomedy, SHUT UP SIT DOWN & EAT is written by and stars, Tina Giorgi, Joe Moffa, Chris Monty and Eric Tartaglione and was co-written by Tom Ingegno and Directed by Eve Brandstein. A comical take on emotional dysfunction when four Italian Americans show up for a group therapy session where the therapist never shows and they grow impatient and take their issues into their own hands delving into their true feelings about work, love, relationships and their Italian Families.


My Take:

I truly enjoyed Shut Up Sit Down & Eat! The stories shared are easy for anyone to relate to, some moments are nostalgic and others are simply laugh out loud funny, and you walk out feeling like you spent time with good friends, it just doesn't get better than that. Personally I think this one should be right on Broadway, it is well written, well cast and the performances are delivered to perfection, I can easily think of some snoozers that could be replaced by this show!

@HOT97 #aprilfoolscomedyshow - Funny With a Very Important Message about your #HEALTH! @MetroPlusHealth @MarqueeConcerts {#MotivationMonday}

Hot97 April Fools Comedy Show presented by Carolines Comedy Club, Logo,

Our friends at Marquee Concerts offered me the highlight of my weekend with Tickets to the Hot 97 April Fool's Comedy Show. While it was a night of non-stop funny, that funny came with an important reminder and an important message about your HEALTH and healthcare! For most New Yorkers, March 31st is the deadline to enroll for healthcare coverage for 2014 or face the fines and penalties!

I'm definitely not getting into a political debate about Obamacare, at this point regardless of your stance, the deadline is looming and if you are un-insured you have a very short window to enroll.

Start by visiting to explore your options. The folks at MetroPlus Health are also out there in the community so their reps can help answer questions, to speak with a MetroPlus Certified Application Counselor (CAC) go to an enrollment center near you, check HERE, there are also Community Outreach Vehicles (COV) locations and you can contact MetroPlus Customer Services at 1.855.809.4073.

I love unique partnerships, and I thought this was a super creative way to get the word out about making sure everyone gets enrolled for healthcare coverage! It was a great lineup that included: The Wayans Brothers - Shawn and Marlon Wayans, Tracy Morgan (who I can imitate dead on by the way), Charlie Murphy (older brother of comedy icon Eddie Murphy), A.G. White (I dare anyone who was there to try to forget that Tuna joke!), Cipha Sounds (Hot 97 DJ), Cocoa Brown (Tyler Perry's show For Better or For Worse), Rob Stapleton (Bronx born and raised, so BIG UP!), Tony Roberts  (His 1-hour comedy special 'Wired' aired on Showtime) and a surprise appearance by comedian Capone!

I can tell you from first hand experience that you never know when a medical emergency can strike, and the only way you can save yourself from the financial ruin of surprise Medical Bills is to be sure that you are prepared and that you are insured.

As soon as I get the pro shot of me taken that night, I will update this post!

Protect your Health Butterflies and get enrolled today if you haven't already done so! Remember if you are not enrolled there are fines and penalties to face!
