The guys over at 12 Angry Mascots have booked another Jets for one of their shows, and is there a more popular guy with the fans than Tony Richardson? I can't think of too many. It'll be an interesting show, as I wouldn't connect T-Rich and a comedy club. As always it would be great to pack the place with Jets fans to show the support.
Here is the Press Release we were sent by the guys:
