ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — Delivering his signature style of comedy all the way from Los Angeles, Vahe Berberian performed his new monologue, “Ooremn,” to great enthusiasm at sold-out weekend performances on March 3 and 4 at the Clinton Inn in an event hosted by the Tekeyan Cultural Association (TCA) of Greater New York.
Tying together generations through contemporary and cultural references, Berberian elaborated, through humor, on the themes of marriage, religion, current events and social media during his one-hour-and-forty-five minute set in the Armenian language.
Conveying his astute ability to grasp observations of even the simplest everyday circumstances and situations, Berberian analyzed human relationships and interactions through the lens of comedy, relating to both Armenians and the world at large.
Hilda Hartounian, chair of the TCA, welcomed guests and gave an update on upcoming TCA-related events and activities, before introducing Berberian to the stage.
