Comedian-turned-actor DeRay Davis may not be a household name just yet, but his affable mug, booming voice, and merciless material have bristled the funny bones of millions of comedy fans. Having honed his chops on the south side of Chicago, the sly, brash, and fast-talking comic took his act from the projects to LA’s tough-to-crack comedy-club circuit, winning the Comedy Central Laugh Riots Competition and primo slots at the Cedric the Entertainer festival and the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival.
When it opened in 1927, the Florida Theatre was the largest of 15 cinemas in downtown Jacksonville. Today, it's the city's last surviving vestige of that era's iconic architecture. Designed by New Yorker R.E. Hall and Jacksonvillian Roy Benjamin, the venue is a prime example of the Mediterranean Revival style, with a ceiling covered in glittering stars and a six-story proscenium arch. And even as the entertainment industry shifted towards television, the Florida Theatre survived by hosting interactive game nights and concerts from underground artists, including Elvis Presley. The space was renovated In the early 1980s, and today it returns to its entertaining roots by hosting live events and classic film screenings.
