I can’t make Mondays suck any less, but I can tell you what isn’t going…
I’m sure many of you are waking up this morning feeling absolutely patriotic after a long 4th of July weekend celebrating America’s birthday. Nothing says, “Proud to be an American” on Independence Day like getting drunk, setting off fire works and eating more hot dogs than humanly possible?! Amirite ladies?
Actually, the story about how Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on Independence Day started apparently began in 1916 when 4 immigrants wanted to prove who was the most patriotic. Which is hilarious for so many reasons, and I seriously hope that is the true story behind the contest…Anyway, I digress, hopefully none of you became a statistic of fireworks related injuries or are still too hungover by the weekend to do anything fun.
Since none of that is the case, starting this Thursday, July 9th through Saturday, July 11th, comedian Jon Rineman headlines Laugh Boston.

For many local comedians in the Boston comedy scene, as well as those aspiring to be a stand up comedian, consider Jon Rineman as a hometown hero in comedy. The New Hampshire native and Emerson alum got his start in comedy like many of the local comedians in the Boston area do at The Comedy Studio in Harvard, Sq., Cambridge. Since then, the comedian has worked his tail off consistently writing new jokes which of course paid off when he landed the job as a writer for the show “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Today, Jon Rineman is the head monologue writer for “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” and he’s coming back home to perform 3 shows this weekend July 9th – 11th starting at 8pm.
