RED BANK: SMOOTHING THE MIDWEEK HUMP
Comic tunesmith Bo Burnham makes a Count Basie Theatre debut Tuesday, and Engelbert Humperdinck makes a triumphal Red Bank return Wednesday.
A tantrum-throwing tempest named Joaquin may have blown past the Greater Green, but over at Red Bank’s Count Basie Theatre, a robust gust of activity promises to carry us over the wacky-weather hump — or is that Humperdinck? — in signature style.
It starts with gales of laughter on Tuesday, when Bo Burnham makes an inaugural trip to those fabled Basie boards that have hosted so many kingpins/queens of comedy legend.
