DELRAY BEACH – The first full comedy week of October starts slowly, but man does it get rolling as the weekend approaches.

When the weekend arrives, it’s time to jump on the Cam tram.

Cam Bertrand, the reigning Florida’s Funniest comic and recent America’s Got Talent competitor, makes the quick drive across the Sunshine State to perform twice in two days.

On Friday he headlines at Martin Downs, with Dan Weeks featuring. Casey Peruski and Spaz McGoorty are also scheduled to perform. Tickets for that 8 p.m. show range from $20-$35.

The following night that same quartet heads a little further north to perform at the Sunrise Theatre in Fort Pierce. Tickets for that show range from $20-$30.

The Applause Planner picks the Friday show as its performance of the week, but comedy fans really can’t go wrong with either show. Martin Downs only recently started hosting comedy again, so it may well be the first time most South Florida comedy fans will experience a show at that venue.

On the other hand, the Sunrise Theatre is a wonderful place to catch a comedy show. Pick one and have some fun.


Speakeasy Chronicles – Gatsby’s Joint, Fort Lauderdale
Jackie Sanchez headlines the first big show of the week, and former South Floridian Dougie Almeida returns home to serve as the feature. Alex Novello will also perform, with Nileja serving as host. The free show starts at 8 p.m.

Jamie Morgan – Biergarten, Boca Raton
A huge day of South Florida comedy starts in Boca Raton. Veteran comic Jamie Morgan headlines this twice-monthly show. Rob Churchill, who recently featured for Ron White, joins Morgan for the trip from Fort Myers to Boca.

Carl Rimi – The Farmer’s Table, North Palm Beach
Jennifer Hellman’s Lettuce Laugh shows took the summer off, but it returns on Thursday with a line-up featuring a couple of South Florida’s finest comics.

Local favorite Nadeem Awad will feature for Rimi, with Jennifer Hellman hosting the show. Tickets are $25, with the proceeds benefiting Comics Crushing Cancer.

Dope City Comedy Tour – Dania Improv, Dania Beach
It hasn’t taken long for Tim Hanlon and Matt Bellak to become the Darlings of Dania.

Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $20.

Comedy On Tap – Coastal Karma Brewing, Lake Park
