Sports lounge big on comedy

Overtime Sports Lounge off Lawrence
Boulevard will host the second of its two comedy nights 29-30 March.

The George Town venue wants to make
a name for itself as the go-to bar for weekday comedy acts, according to its
managing director, Rion Mohammad.

This week funny man Dean Napolitan
will be taking to the stage with his own infectious brand of comedy.

Described as a “throwback to the great comedians of yesteryear
only with a modern twist that makes him one of the most prevalent comedians
working today,” Dean is a true storyteller with imaginative delivery that makes
audiences feel as if they have been through each experience themselves.

The Long Island native’s comedy roots start not in New York state,
but were firmly planted while working in the bars and clubs of Florida’s
thriving comedy scene.

The comedian’s small screen credits include Three Rivers, What About
Brian (ABC), Heroes (NBC) and From the Earth to the Moon (HBO).

Dean likes his TV work but his passion is live stand-up. A true
talent he has worked with Hollywood elite and has opened for the likes of Don Rickles
and Joan Rivers.

Dave Williamson was born to be a comedian, or at least that is how
he tells it.

The
stand-up comes from a family of automobile dealers and said that he had to be
funny and think on his feet to get noticed while growing up.

His
humour is autobiographical and centres largely round his eventful childhood,
colourful college experience and his continuing journey into adulthood as a
husband and a father.

Dave
learnt his craft working in the family business while nurturing his passion for
comedy.  Luckily, comedy found a way and
Dave has begun carving out a promising comedy career full-time.

In
recent years he has developed an energetic and self-deprecating style of
presenting his view of the world which connects with both younger hip and older
nostalgic audiences. His topics are often edgy, but in good taste. 

The
comic has performed in the 2008 and 2010 South Beach Comedy Festival.  He has opened for such comedians as Gilbert
Gottfried, Richard Lewis, Dom Irrera, Christopher Titus, Joel McHale, and Bill
Bellamy.

In
the next few months Williamson will perform in the 2010 Laugh Detroit Comedy
Festival and has been invited to the New York call-backs for the 2010 Montreal
Just For Laughs Festival.

The comedy nights are being sponsored by Kettel One
and Heineken.
