Drawing: Jim Belushi and The Board of Comedy at Proctors

jim belushi board of comedy

Drawing's closed! Winner's been emailed!

Jim Belushi's known for his many film and TV roles. But he got his start with the famous Chicago comedy group The Second City. And he's recently returned to his roots with a touring improv comedy show -- Jim Belushi and The Board of Comedy -- which will be at Proctors April 2. We have a pair of tickets for the show and we're giving them away -- maybe to you.

To enter the drawing, please answer this question in the comments:

What's a word that you find funny?

Yep, pretty simple. Just a word that you find funny -- maybe because of the way it sounds, or the way it's spelled, or what it means. Whatever. A quick line about why you find it funny won't help your odds, but it will earn your comment secret non-redeemable gold stars.

The show includes Belushi (of course), along with a group of about four other comedians and a musician. Belushi from the show blurbage:

"We are not stand-up comedians. Our show is not a passive, sit-back-and-watch experience. Most of the fun we have on stage comes from our inclusion of the audience - we get suggestions from them to begin each scene we perform, and in certain instances, bring them on-stage with us to add to our performance. It's less a 'show' and more a party. At least it feels like one to me. This group of actors brings me right back to how I started out in comedy - maybe that's why we have so much fun doing it."

The show starts at 8 pm on Wednesday, April 2 on the Proctors main stage. Tickets are $20 and up.

Boob

Sugarbush.

Probably because I once heard it pronounced Boogershush & to this day that makes me giggle.

flatulence - because I'm still a 12 year old boy somewhere inside!

absquatulate. to flee, abscond.

It's fun to say :)

Bruhaha

Pulchritude.

Means "beauty."

Sounds like it should mean "the act of throwing up in your mouth."

gobbledygook - First, it means nonsense.

Second, it sounds strange to say, and sounds like the speaker is describing someone who is voraciously consuming great globs of slime.

Arse...for those too polite to say ass....but you know they do want to say it....

Coxsackie -- because I always laugh at the possibilities of names for residents.

Oops.

Baba ghanoush.

Cockamamie.

извините -- This is the first word I learned in Russian. Its means "excuse me". I spent too much time in Russia and what's funny is that I never heard it used by the locals, not once. I tried it out a few times, mostly in the Metro where a certain amount of body contact is often warranted to keep from being pushed off platforms in front of speeding subways by grumpy Babushkas. I was immediately pegged is an idiot foreigner and stopped by hungry soldier boys who extracted a small fine. "спасибо!" they said, "thank you". So there was hope.

Daft

Dollop

speedball

coxsakie

Scuttlebutt! :-p

okie-dokie. Why not just say ok - its shorter.

moo-pah. this is an invented word that describes hard ice cream that has been mashed and stirred until its texture approximates soft ice cream. make some moo-pah. it's good.

moamie. honorable mention. another invented word that describes the decorative ball on top of a winter hat.

Bazinga!

Dingus -- used as a term of endearment

fiddlesticks.

I don't swear a lot, but when I do, people look at me funny. Probably because 'fiddlesticks' is my go-to curse word.

Fahrvergnügen - It's fun to say! - Joy! Joy!

A few different things that make me feel fancy: dinner and drinks at Peck's Arcade in Troy, drinks at the Speakeasy in Albany and catching a show at Proctor's in Schenectady. And one more out there -- going to a farm to table dinner at Dancing Ewe farm in Granville, NY (what a beautiful setting and absolutely delicious food and wine).
