Veteran Seattle-area stand-up comic Jan Barrett
, making a comeback from a hiatus of several years, will serve as
host for a “Best of Seattle Comedy Competition” show March 21 at
the Admiral Theatre .
Barrett joins headliner Ty Barnett and Duane Goad for the 8 p.m. show.
“She (Barrett) has been out of action for a few years,” said Ron Reid of Seattle’s Comedy Underground , which periodically sends a raft of comics across Puget Sound for a laugh-filled Admiral outing. “She’s had another business. But she’s getting back in the game.”
And Reid’s putting her to work. He said Barrett will do opening sets for both the other comics for the Bremerton show.
“She’ll do a set, and then Duane will come on and do about 40 minutes,” Reid said. “After the intermission, she’ll do some more and introduce Ty, and he’ll do, oh, an hourish-long set.
“What we’ve got (with Barrett and Goad) is almost a twin-headliner situation,” Reid said.
