DELRAY BEACH – Comedy returns to Delray Beach on Tuesday, wine glass in hand.
In July Nadeem Awad brought stand-up comedy to the Wine House Social, located in downtown Delray, for the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event proved so successful that Awad and company are at it again this week, bringing national performer Joey Medina to the stage as the headliner for a show stacked with quality local comics.
Medina is best known for his performance as part of The Original Kings of Latin Comedy,” in which starred along with Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez, George Lopez and Alex Reymundo.
He’s toured internationally, performed for America’s military abroad, hosted his own radio show in Los Angeles, and produced a comedy and music special. Tuesday’s show kicks off a busy South Florida week for Medina, who also headlines a show the following night at Tavolino Della Notte in Coral Springs and Saturday’s Sunrise Theatere show in Fort Pierce.
Awad will be the feature comic on Tuesday, with his cohort David Sadman serving as host.
John Loveless, one of the area’s top up-and-coming comics, is a late but welcomed addition to this show, as is part-time New Yorker, often South Floridian, Zach McGovern.
Add a little fine wine and this show has the makings for a memorable Tuesday.
Applause Planner – Plan On It
House Party Comedy Show – Monday, August 9, The Whistle Stop
Matt Bellak is back in Boca Raton looking to help South Floridian’s start their comedy week right. The aforementioned Loveless is scheduled to perform, joined by husband-and-wife comics Dan Long and Minda, along with Matt Ross.
Tim Hanlon and Matt Bellak – Thursday, August 12, Biergarten
The Dope City Tour duo isn’t billing this as a Dope City show, but the elements – and hilarity – will still be there. Awad is also scheduled to perform, with Sadman hosting. That’s a big collection of funny people performing a free show on a Thursday night in Boca Raton.
Comedy Night – Thursday, August 12, Kelly Brothers
Broward County residents who don’t want to make the drive to Palm Beach County on Thursday have an excellent alternative in Fort Lauderdale. Kelly Brothers Irish Pub is one of the best venues for comedy in South Florida. Rudy Wilson headlines this show, with Zach Bugarin performing as the feature comic. Jay McCoard is also scheduled to perform, with Morgan Gallo hosting.
Carl Rimi – Saturday, August 14, Coastal Championship Wrestling
One of South Florida’s best comics, Rimi is performing in the venue he was born to play. CCW is a wrestling arena in Pompano Beach, and the ultra-jacked Rimi is ready to show South Floridian’s the ropes – and maybe a suplex, pile driver, or a figure-four leg lock. Ariel Levy, Ryan Scott Eric Rosenblum and Nelio Costa are also scheduled to perform. Are you ready to rumble?
