Ed McGonical


“Vet­er­an loc­al comedi­an Ed McGo­nigal can tell early on wheth­er it’s go­ing to be a good night on stage.  “If the first joke gets a laugh, you know you’re do­ing good and can re­lax,” he said…McGo­nigal, a gradu­ate of St. Bern­ard Gram­mar School and Fath­er Judge High School (Class of 1983), is a lifelong res­id­ent of Aldine Street in May­fair…McGo­nigal…star­ted in the busi­ness 20 years ago, then took off for a few years be­fore get­ting back on stage. He got his start dur­ing an open-mi­cro­phone night at the old Com­edy Works in Old City…Over the years, he has ap­peared on the Kidd Chris and Opie and An­thony ra­dio shows. He’s opened for the likes of Colin Quinn and Gil­bert Gottfried and had a mem­or­able per­form­ance at the Elec­tric Fact­ory.  “There were four­teen-hun­dred people there. It was a lot of fun,” he said.  McGo­nigal…per­forms top­ic­al and ob­ser­va­tion­al hu­mor on stage, with many of the jokes com­ing from twists on news stor­ies. He’ll tell jokes about be­ing Ir­ish-Cath­ol­ic. He’ll make cracks about Face­book, loc­al sports teams, cell phones, tele­vi­sion com­mer­cials and GPS…”
