Coach Tom Whiteley, a former college and high school football coach, has made a name for himself in another profession as one of the funniest men “on or off the field.”
And on Friday Jan. 20, the Coach brings his unique and hilarious comedy to the Inn at Millrace Pond in Hope for a special performance starting at 9 p.m.
Whiteley has been on ESPN, has opened for Joe Piscopo, appeared on the Chris Rock Show, has been showcased on many star-studded shows and has played all the big comedy rooms around the country, including Catch A Rising Star and the Borgata.
The Coach offers amusing takes on his former coaching career as well as his other life experiences, many of which, he says, “everybody can relate to!”
Whiteley, whose on stage antics are second to none, coached college football at St. Peter’s College in Jersey City, William Paterson University and at the University of Albany. He has also coached baseball. But these days, comedy is his No. 1 love.
The “dinner hour” for this show begins at 7:30 with showtime set for 9. Cost for the show is just $10 per person. Reservations are highly recommended.
The Inn at Millrace Pond, a historic bed and breakfast and restaurant just minutes from Route 80, Exit 12. The Tavern, located in the restaurant's tap room downstairs, is the perfect setting to listen to music and enjoy a pub style menu.
