Old York Cellars Welcomes Headliner: JoAnn Filan!
Joanne Filan Growing up in New Jersey (but refusing to die there), Joanne Filan has made her way around the comedy club scene and around the comedy country. Performing at well-known places such as The Friars Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Caroline’s, Greenwich Village Comedy Club and more, not to mention a fixture in the traveling show, “The Broads of Broadway”, she is well known in the comedy world.
She consistently delivers a unique “stream of consciousness” style of humor full of random thoughts and quirky observations that keep audiences either rolling in the aisles or on the edges of their seats, anxious to hear what she has to say next. With an amazing gift for improv, razor-sharp wit, and a subtle delivery, Joanne is an unexpected gem- a comedian so able to tap into the moment that no two shows are ever alike.
