WEST PALM BEACH – A giant in the South Florida comedy community, Wayne Felber recently succumbed to the effects of COVID-19.
On Wednesday the South Florida comedy community will pay tribute to Felber.
The Palm Beach Improv is hosting a night celebrating Felber, with the proceeds from the event benefiting Team Felber, a charity Wayne and his wife Sharon founded to help people battling cancer pay their bills.
“His heart was so big,” Palm Beach Improv co-owner/general manager Rene Harte said. “He always stuck up for the little guy.”
Dean Napolitano is headlining the event, with Ramon Garcia, Mike Cintron and Gary G-man Gelman also performing.
Prior to start of the 8 p.m. show, there will also be a celebration of Felber’s life at Copper Blues, which is located next to the Improv. As part of the celebration, Copper Blues will serve many of Felber’s favorite dishes, including tater tots, and quesadillas.
Those in attendance will have time to share what Felber meant to them.
“My main goal is closure for everybody,” Harte said.
The Copper Blues celebration is free and open to the public. Tickets for the comedy show are $15. Masks will be required – and provided – at the show.
“The worst thing for us to do would be for us to celebrate his life, come together, and someone get COVID,” Harte said.
