If you've noticed a lack of character in the Boston scene for the past few months, that's because Chris Coxen has been gone, bringing Barry Tattle, Rips McCoxen, and his stable of unstables to England. Coxen reports that his characters went over well there, and he was fairly smitten with the scene.
He'll be at The Comedy Studio Friday and Saturday, and back at his usual Wednesday night gig at Mottley's Comedy Club.
I caught up with Coxen at his welcome home party. But since Coxen would never use such a pedestrian phrase, he called it his "Jazzy Persons Convention." He talks about England, and what would make him leave his Boston home for the U.K.
