At the intimate showroom of Shimmer Cabaret, comedian Mark Curry takes the stage to rile audiences with laughter during the Icons of Comedy Series. Best known for his syndicated sitcom Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper, Curry has also held court over shows on BET, Comedy Central, and Pax, and served as the chuckle-chucking host of Showtime at the Apollo. A global performer, Curry has taken his observational comedy to London, Australia, and Africa, where his show in Tanzania made history as the country’s first-ever comedy show. With premium seating, audience members can sit close enough for the comedian to spot one’s Tell Jokes About “Free Bird” sign or to snatch up spiraling laugh lobs in the theater’s midsection.
Before or after the show, audience members may indulge in an ambrosial five-course meal from Benihana, a world-famous eatery with exhibition-style Japanese cuisine prepared by a chef performing culinary acrobatics. Diners can choose a starter such as Japanese onion soup or the botanical kaleidoscope of the Benihana Rainbow salad (greens, carrots, and tomatoes with ginger dressing) to quell still-chuckling bellies before moving onto an entree of hibachi chicken or teriyaki steak to strengthen tibia joints for future knee-slapping. A confectionery finale of mandarin-orange cheesecake accompanied by Japanese green tea rounds out meals. Those plumping for a lighter option can swill a Belvedere cocktail while snickering at Curry’s scatological stories and line graphs of decreasing whoopee-cushion profits.
A reservation must be made at Benihana if purchasing the dinner option.
