Steve Trevelise owner of the Sarcasm Comedy Club announced earlier this month the hiring of Eric Potts as the clubs new general manager.
Trevelise, who is a popular Philadelphia and NJ Radio personality, said “Eric took the comedy class that I ran, along with Jimmy Graham, at Catch a Rising Star in Princeton, and excelled quickly at comedy”. The comedy class teaches the basics of comedy along with the business side and marketing of comedy. ‘Eric brings a wealth of knowledge with him beyond what he’s learned over the past few years on the comedy circuit”, said Trevelise. “He has been a police officer in NJ for over 20 years and has fantastic people skills as well as a tremendous drive to succeed.”
Potts, who lives in Ewing, NJ, said “I’m excited about the opportunity to work closely with Steve and help build Sarcasm Comedy Club into a National name, the level of entertainment Steve is able to bring to the area is unbelievable and I am using the opportunity to learn from one of the best promoters in the business”.
“In a short amount of time Eric has gone from student to feature in area clubs and he is a perfect fit to manage and be house Emcee of Sarcasm Comedy Club”, Trevelise added.
Eric has performed at Catch a Rising Star, LOL Comedy Club, Helium Comedy Club, The Stress Factory, Sarcasm Comedy Club, and Parx Casino just to name a few. He is the winner of the 2011 Sarcasm Comedy Club competition and has opened for Gilbert Gottfried, Joe Matarese, Roundboy Jimmy Graham, Joseph Anthony, Vic DiBitetto and Uncle Floyd.
