When I think of an evening of stand-up comics, Screech Powers from Saved By The Bell isn’t the first guy to pop in my mind. Among making a fairly long string of really bad movies (and dabbling in porn), Dustin Diamond, who had his 15 minutes playing the geek on Saved By The Bell, has been doing stand-up comedy for the last couple of years. If you’re in the area and you know all the episodes of Saved By The Bell, you can catch Dustin Diamond do his stand-up routine at the Crossroads in Garwood, NJ this Saturday July 20th.
I never had any type of personal vendetta against Dustin like many people do for some reason, but I doubt I would actually go to see him perform despite the title of this post. Surprisingly, appearing on Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling and naming his band Salty the Pocketknife don’t qualify as his biggest offenses. What bothers me most is his mid-90s style “I’m trying to be a comedian” head shot used on the left side of the promotional poster above. I truly hope he didn’t pay someone to pose him and snap that photo for him. If he did, then this post is dedicated to the low budget photographer he used. He should incorporate this ridiculous photo and his silly pose into his comedy act.
3 other comedians will also be appearing: Joe Carney, Big Rich from Jersey, and Zack Bratkovich
