Valley Comedy’s rotating roster of joke-tellers lobs laugh grenades from the stage of the intimate banquet hall at Riverlakes Golf Course. On March 2, Tom Clark combines improv with dark musings honed on laugh institutions Comedy Central and The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson after opening sets from dry, self-deprecating jester Patrick Keane and Mark Valley. BET alumnus Yoursie Thomas brings his elastic facial expressions and caffeinated physical energy to the stage on April 13, and Dillon Garcia and Aurelio Bocanegra cull from their Latino heritages to provide culture-specific observations on language and relationships on May 4. On June 8, Groupon buyers can take in a set from comedienne Jen Murphy, whose comparison of the romantically jilted to a helpless kitten conjured sizable guffaws from the audience on Last Comic Standing.
The promoters behind Valley Comedy draw from a rib-tickling lineup of local comedians and touring comedians who perform in monthly shows at 1933 Prohibition in Bakersfield, monthly shows at the Aviator Casino in Delano, and bimonthly shows in Fresno. Valley Comedy also provides entertainment for public and private events, dispatching standup comedians to fundraisers, charity events, corporate events and parties throughout the Central Valley.
