12 Angry Mascots - and one 4-ringed relief pitcher!

After retiring from baseball, former Yankee relief pitcher Jeff Nelson has been transitioning to a career in broadcasting - here he is talking about Joe Nathan on the MLB Network. Now he's got a new gig, as he will be appearing at a...comedy club? What?

Yes, Nelson, along with wine guru/Jets fanatic Gary Vaynerchuk and comedian Sean Patton, will be part of the latest 12 Angry Mascots sports comedy show, this Sunday, March 28 at Comix comedy club at 353 W. 14th Street, in the Meatpacking District. Tickets are $10 ($15 day of show) and be purchased online or by calling 212-524-2500. A portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to the NYC chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

So what are 12 Angry Mascots about? You may have heard of 12 Angry Mascots from their videos - they have the fake Jeff Wilpon ones that I've seen linked on various web sites. But what about these live events? The ticket site describes the show this way:

12 ANGRY MASCOTS is the Tri-County Area's only variety/talk show devoted to that touchstone of all humankind endeavors: sports. Scott Rogowsky (The Onion) and Neil Janowitz (ESPN) welcome the Eastern Seaboard's finest sketch actors and comedians to mock the jocks and spoof the sports scene in a grand slam-packed show that culminates with a celebrity guest athlete interview. These mascots aren't angry for nothing.

Anyhow, if you're looking for something to do Sunday night, check out Jeff Nelson's comedy show debut. It sounds like a fun evening.
