Comedians Bob Perkell and Jeff Capri met through an act of deceit. When Perkell was gearing up for one of first productions on the other side of the curtain, Capri called him to get a booking for one of the comedians he said he managed: Jeff Capri. But the charade didn’t last long: the show was a success, Capri revealed his real identity, and, eventually, the two channeled their teamwork into a comedy club of their own.
On June 29 and 30, Surf City hosts LA native Ruben Paul, an expert on dining with rich friends and correctly interpreting the magic words “I got you.” A former college basketball player, Paul Morrissey also takes the stage with stories about his days on the court and, later, behind the sports-anchor desk. Morrissey has appeared frequently on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and HBO, demonstrating his easygoing, still-boyish delivery and talent for spur-of-the-moment inventions such as the pepperoni slip ‘n’ slide. During shows, guests can order from a list of sweet, wine-centric cocktails and two dozen beers, including taps of Fat Tire and Shock Top.
