Bonkerz Comedy Club’s Comedy After Dark series bruises legs with the knee-slapping humor of 78-year-old punch-line powerhouse Grandma Lee. On an unconventional path to stardom, the spunky senior eschewed retirement to chase her standup-comedy dream, eventually becoming a household name as a top-10 finalist on America’s Got Talent, and earning appearances on HBO and Last Comic Standing. Now a sharpened veteran of the standup circuit, Grandma Lee’s comedy act mixes old-fashioned dirty jokes, cantankerous stories about her family, and harsh critiques of modern inanities as she shoots from the seemingly unbreakable hip. Warming up the audience, comedian Anthony Padilla hosts Comedy After Dark with an affable, of-the-people style that enables him to riff effortlessly with the crowd and catch funny bones by surprise with his observational humor and personal anecdotes.

Bonkerz Comedy Club
The first Bonkerz Comedy Club was founded in Wisconsin in 1984, when nightclub-owning buddies John SanFelippo and George Maltezos decided that it was more fun and much less of a hassle to book comedians than pesky musicians. Nearly 30 years later, Bonkerz has grown into a major comedy institution, with branches reaching as far as Florida, Georgia, Maryland, and Nevada. Winner of several awards for Best Comedy Club and Venue, Bonkerz Comedy Club has kept the laughter rolling throughout the years with whoopee cushions installed in every seat and sets by greats such as Jerry Seinfeld, Larry the Cable Guy, and SNL’s Daryl Hammond. As the official audition site for NBC’s America’s Got Talent, the chain continues to feed tomorrow’s brightest comics to the national spotlight.
