About Joanna Rapoza / Comedy Calendar

I just came here to buy socks.

I just came here to buy socks.

Welcome! “RangeleyMoose” is a handle loosely based on the name of a beautiful town in western Maine called Rangeley. And, there are moose there. That’s it. It’s that deep. Oh, and the “droppings:” well, that should be self-explanatory. (Those can be fairly deep, too – I am also a stand-up comic, see my upcoming shows below**.)

I also have a novella at another blog, “MySpew” at WordPress – CLICK HERE to view it.

And a sort of semi-literary and respectable kind of blog, “Rise Up And Write”, which you can view by CLICKING HERE.

All written material and original artwork in my blogs is copyrighted, and should not be used or re-printed without my express permission, which I would likely grant if the requester seemed sincere enough.



Join us at the Alpenhaus Comedy Open Mic, which occurs on the second Thursday of each month. The NEXT SHOW is December 14, 2017.

The Alpenhaus Comedy Open Mic is sponsored by KBJB Internet Radio/TV, and hosted by comedians Kathy “KJ” Johansen and Joanna Rapoza. Large audience turnout is expected from this vibrant, supportive community, providing an excellent opportunity for both established and upcoming comics to perform.

PRIZES including a $25 Alpenhaus gift certificate will be awarded at EACH SHOW to the comic with the best set, based on audience voting.

KBJB Radio will video and make available to each comic their entire set for NO CHARGE. KBJB will air up to three minutes of each CONTEST WINNER’S audio on KBJB’s streaming app as well as on their YouTube channel. KBJB generously offers these career-boosting benefits not found at other open mics as part of its vision to be the “Home of the Original Artist,” whether it’s music or stand-up comedy.

Signup for performers is 7:30pm. Show begins 8pm. Comics get 5-10 minutes depending on the number of comics in the lineup. Please arrive early for best seating.

The Alpenhaus Restaurant, located at 59 Bank Street, New Milford CT, is a popular destination with many food/drink specials and great atmosphere. This show is 21 & over, rated R. Free parking.


COMING SOON: KJ Johansen (comic and co-owner of KBJB Radio; my co-host for the Alpenhaus Comedy Open Mic) and I will be TEACHING a 6 week comedy writing class with graduation show, based in Woodbury, CT. We also will be discussing the comedy industry in a new KBJB radio program. Stay Tuned for futher information about both projects. We are very excited! Visit KBJB, download their streaming app or visit them on YOUTUBE! http://www.kbjbradio.com/
