DELRAY BEACH – Dan Weiss isn’t simply going to let some of South Florida’s top comics eat cake.
They are going to have to earn it.
On Thursday, Dec. 7, Weiss is producing the Cake Or Death comedy show at Twisted Roots Kava Brewery in Hollywood.
Weiss is bringing a cake to the event, during which eight comics are scheduled to perform. After each set the audience will determine whether the comic is rewarded for their humor with a piece of cake, or whether the comic is hauled off stage by the grim reaper – or at least someone dressed as the grim reaper.
Perry Sak is the night’s headliner. Nico Prada, Chris Shepard, Joanna B, Bob Kaufman, John Gregory, Michael Evans and Bruce Zafran are scheduled to perform, with Weiss serving as host.
The night sounds fun, and potentially delicious. The free show begins at 9 p.m.
No word as yet as to the flavor of the cake. How awesome would it be if Fudgie The Whale swam in?

Patrick Garrity – Biergarten, Boca Raton
Patrick Garrity, and his truck of 10,000 signings, is making a stop in Boca Raton. A veteran comic, Garrity spends his life on the road touring, driving from town-to-town in his beat-up truck. After shows, he has fans autograph his truck. Nadeem Awad and Lenny Travis are scheduled to perform as co-features. The free Sadman Comedy Productions show begins at 8 p.m.

Lewis Black – Kravis Center, West Palm Beach
This is probably the opposite end of the Comedy and Cake spectrum, and if anyone chooses to see Lewis Black rather than the Cake Or Die show, well that’s understandable. The King of the Rant, current times provide Black with plenty of material. He uses his trademark style of comedic yelling and finger-pointing to skewer anything and anyone. Black has been a regular on late night TV shows for decades, poking fun at all things unpopular. He’s has also had numerous appearances on CNN and MSNBC and has occasionally done the weather with Al Roker. Black has written three best-selling books: “Nothing’s Sacred” (Simon and Schuster, 2005), “Me of Little Faith” (Riverhead Books, 2008) and “I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas” (Riverhead Books, 2010). All garnered critical praise as well commercial success and spent numerous weeks on the New York Times best sellers list. Ticket prices for the 8 p.m. show run between $35-$100.
