Conventional live comedy that properly happens in a tightly packed, dark venue that, more often than not, serves alcohol, is still far off from happening like it used to because of COVID-19. For now, the world of attempting of live comedy is a crowded field of all sorts of experiments. Drive-ins, performing on one side of a glass door/window to an audience outside (i.e. watching folks perform like you’re at a zoo), or performing in the wide open outdoors in a park.
For the sake of social distancing, baseball fields seem to naturally delineate a more than healthy distance from the performer and, as one could figure, all performers are using an individual microphone. That was the set-up for the outdoor show that Eddie Pepitone did just a few days ago and, of course, Eddie is the perfect prophetic voice to yell jokes at a baseball diamond designed for children while the end times feel so close.
