Valley Comedy’s rotating roster of joke-tellers lobs laugh grenades from the stage of the intimate banquet hall at Riverlakes Golf Course. 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, laugh-starved visitors can take in a set from comedienne Jen Murphy who conjured sizable guffaws from the audience on Last Comic Standing when she compared the romantically jilted to a helpless kitten.
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.
