TICKLE ME TUESDAYS IN DECEMBER: STAND-UP COMEDY THAT JINGLES ALL THE WAY
Allentown, PA-Tickle Me Tuesdays, the Lehigh Valley’s only stand-up comedy showcase regularly featuring local talent alongside professional comics from New York & Philadelphia, will be held on the 1st and 15th of December in the Allentown Brew Works’ High Gravity Lounge. Each show features 5-6 amateur & semi-professional comics from the Lehigh Valley and beyond, and each show ends with a professional headliner.
The following is the headliner information for December:
December 1st headliner â€“ Steve Balbier. This up-and-coming young comedian from Philadelphia has made a name for himself on the Philly scene with his unique, dry style. A teacher by day and a comic by night, Steve lets audiences know what smart teachers are really thinking when they’re dealing with dumb kids. Steve has performed throughout the greater Philly area and beyond, sometimes showing up on the popular â€˜Ministry of Secret Jokes’ show among many other shows where the cool people hang out.
December 15th headliner â€“ Larry DeFelice. Larry’s clean, high-energy act has been enjoyed by hundreds of audiences in venues ranging from traditional comedy clubs to church basements to banquet halls. He has been heard on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio (“New Rascals Comedy Hour” & “The Wiseguy Show”) and has been seen in a national television commercial for Circuit City Electronic Stores, as well as sketch work on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien show. Impressions of TV and movie characters fill his act, which is also peppered with his life experiences of being “on the cusp”. (Larry’s height of 4’10â€³ puts him “on the cusp” between “The Normals” and “The Little People”) Think, “The Sopranos meets Fantasy Island”!
Both of these shows are at 8pm on their respective dates, with doors opening at 7pm. Tickle Me Tuesdays are hosted and produced by Bethlehem-based professional comedian Ryan Hill; Fountain Hill-based comic Kate Hayes will be the guest-host for the December 1st show.
