Normally, when thereâ€™s bombing in the vicinity of a comedy show, itâ€™s due to terrible jokes, not mortar fire.
But northern Westchester resident Nick DiPaolo and fellow regulars of Howard Sternâ€™s radio show had to duck and cover following their USO show in Afghanistan early last week.
According to The Daily News, DiPaolo had just finished a show with fellow comedians Artie Lange, Jim Florentine and Dave Attell and Sternâ€™s radio producer Gary Dellâ€™Abate when the Kandahar base where they were performing came under mortar fire. The Stern crew reportedly waited for 35 minutes in a secure bunker before shelling stopped and they emerged uninjured.
Rick Dorfman, DiPaolo’s manager, told Suburbarazzi today that the local comedian returned to the United States uninjured and was already en route to the Just For Laughs festival in MontrÃ©al, where he was headlining for a series called “The Nasty Show.”
But really, how nasty could things be by comparison?
