In the world of comedy, Honest John stands out. Sure, he’s slightly older than your average standup, and he’s known to sport vivid tie-dyed shirts. But it’s really his delivery that sets him apart, his gentle, good-humored drawl that belies the sharp observations he shares about the absurdity of everyday life. It’s a signature style that has won him spots on BET’s Comicview, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Showtime at the Apollo, and The Jamie Foxx Show. He brings his dry wit to a show hosted by “The Queen of Comedy” Sonya D, and featuring fellow talented standups. Guests are encouraged to dress up, since the event is being filmed live and no one wants to regret wearing that hat.
Juz Jokkin Comedy Club
Tucked away inside Gurnee’s Holiday Inn sits Juz Jokkin Comedy Club, a new venue with a respectable pedigree. Although young, the club has already attracted heavy hitters such as Dave Chapelle and Gabriel Iglesias to its Friday and Saturday night shows. Each of these performances is hosted by Sonya D, a native Chicagoan who’s appeared on BET, Showtime at the Apollo, and on stage with Kanye West.
