BOCA RATON – Get ready for something a little different.
The Biergarten is offering more than comedy on Thursday night.
Sadman Comedy Productions is shaking up the formula for this twice-monthly show by adding a little music.
The night will start normally enough. Local comics David Sadman, Nadeem Awad, Charly Esturilho and Troy Meeks are all scheduled to perform a set.
Then, the trio of Anthony Francis, Tone Tata and Ben Brown take over.
Tata will jump behind his keyboards, often playing classical music as a soloist. Brown will join him, bringing a trumpet to the stage. They’ll usually jam for a bit, before bringing Francis to the microphone. At that point the show returns to its comedic roots.
Francis excels at improvising humorous song lyrics – often based on topics suggested by the audience. Tata and Brown will chime in, and the rest of the way the performance vacillates between comedy and musicianship.
The unusual end result provides a unique evening of entertainment for fans of both comedy and music.
The free show begins at 8 p.m. The combo of song and laughter should make for a memorable night.
