Best Unique Comedy Show: Hot Mess

Hot Mess

For more than a year, Jander Gray and Kyle Ruse have hosted a monthly show at Snappers Grill & Comedy Club where comedians eat wings and tell jokes. Sound boring? The wings are specifically-created to burn taste buds with the kind of heat that crisps and cooks the jokes right in the comedians’ mouths. They eat the wings, try to finish their set, and the fun begins (for the audience, at least). Some comedians complain, others cry and a few end up getting sick. And somehow, the comedy ends up even funnier than before the hot wing torture. Grey and Ruse declare a winner, but survival is the real prize. It’s hilarious, sadistic and popular: Comedians are lining up to participate, and the audiences are following.
