ImprovBoston rang in the new year by hosting “100 First Jokes,” an evening featuring 100 local comedians telling one brand-new joke each to start 2013. The event was held in two sessions so that people who only had the attention span for 50 new jokes could leave early or sneak in late. The night’s list of performers included (from left) Matt Aromando, Phoebe Angle, Rob Crean, and James Creelman.
