Anyone looking for a bellyful of laughs and a gaggle of guffaws should shimmy over to the Strand Entertainment Complex on Tuesday nights for the Tuesday Comedy Show. The next date is Aug. 22 with Frank Del Pizzo headlining the evening.
Relatively new on the nightlife scene, the fortnightly show is proving to be very popular with locals and visitors alike. International comedians feature, with an impressive lineup having already taken part in the series such as Karl Anthony, Mike Rivera and Kevin White among others.
Karl Anthony has appeared on Comedy Central, opened for an array of headlining comedians including Jay Leno, Tim Allen and Ellen DeGeneres, and worked in films with Jimmy Fallon, John Travolta, Salma Hayek and others.
Longtime teacher and now comedian Mike Rivera brought a vivacious performance to Cayman’s stage. Not surprising, as ABC’s “The View” named him “America’s Most Hilarious Teacher” in a nationally-televised comedy competition.
Bostonian Kevin White describes himself as a wounded veteran of two disastrous marriages, and has a unique and hilarious outlook on life. He has enjoyed bit parts on HBO, a major role in the motion picture “The Investigator” and sung the blues with Al Roker on NBC’s “The Today Show.” White entertained the crowds at the Strand at the beginning of July.
Other comedians to have graced the Comedy Show’s stage include Myke Herlihy, Dean Napolitano, Kojo Prince and the hilarious James Yon.
