Fox Theatre, originally opened in 1929, has long been established as a venue for legendary performances, earning induction into the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. Chuckle chasers flock to the antique theater to absorb the sidesplitting comedic jabs delivered by Joey Medina, who starred in Paramount Pictures’ The Original Latin Kings of Comedy alongside celebrated jokesters Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez, and George Lopez. Sharing the spotlight with Medina, David Lew channels his time on season four of NBC’s Last Comic Standing to tenaciously tickle funny bones, and blossoming funnyman Manny Maldonado coaxes cackles with his uproarious act and PowerPoint presentation about the real-estate market.
On New Year’s Eve, Bay Area blues sage Earl Thomas helps concertgoers usher in 2012 with smooth riffs and vocals more impassioned than an American eagle’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Thomas triumphed at the 2011 Best of Blues Awards, winning “Best Male Vocal,” “Best Album,” and “Best Songwriter.” As one of R & B’s most influential soul men, Lenny Williams joins the year-ending soiree with a string of cross-generational hits, including “Cause I Love You,” the singer’s sensual ode to fireside s’mores. A midnight ball-drop and champagne toast add a festive garnishment to the tuneful evening.
