Hosted by youthful rib tickler Jay Alexander, Phatt No Limit Thursdays Comedy Nite locks audiences into wild chortlecoasters during spirited performances from seasoned standups. A veteran of Def Comedy Jam, Shaq All-Star Comedy Tour, and Showtime at the Apollo, Capone busts guts with his racy monologue and an over-the-top persona, epitomized by his sobriquet "The Gangsta of Comedy" and his side job running rubber-chicken rackets. Special guest Dior Allen brings acting experience gleaned on the sets of 50 Cent's Before I Self Destruct and 30 Rock to craft endlessly amusing stage personas before featured comic BlackBarry storms the stage. After comedians flush every last laugh out into the open, DJ Stakz will commandeer the turntable, blasting out an exuberant mélange of hip-hop, reggae, R & B, soca, and kompa. While beats incite unabashed rug cutting, Groupon holders will have a chance to meet Capone to pose for pictures, gain knowledge on the history of the spinning bow tie, and obtain autographs.
