NY Kings of Comedy and Paula Poundstone Heat Up the Stage at the Iconic Paramount Theater
ASBURY PARK, N.J. — Comedy, no, wild-raging funny is about to hit the stage at the Paramount Theater on the Asbury Park Boardwalk.
One of the most iconic performance venues in Asbury is about to host two, split-your-side funny shows, up first, Valentine’s night, the NY Kings of Comedy, a rambunctious group of crazy funny comedians. The NY Kings of Comedy Tour comes to the beautiful Paramount Theater on the boardwalk in Asbury, Wednesday, February 14, 2018 at 8pm. The NY Kings of Comedy are Capone, Talent Harris, Rob Stapleton, Mark Viera and Drew Fraser. These guys come with a lot of stage time on the books. Their credits include HBO’s Bad Boys of Comedy and Def Comedy Jam, BET’s Comicview, Jaime Foxx’s Laffapoolza, Comedy Central Specials, Showtime Specials, movies and TV pilots. The funny just keeps coming in March. Right on the heels of the Kings of Comedy, get ready for another huge personality and very funny lady Paula Poundstone, who has been a force in the comedic universe for over twenty years. A regular on NPR’s “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me” she brings her particular brand of hilarious to the Jersey Shore and the Paramount stage Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 8 pm. Paula known for stepping up to the plate for causes she believes in, and is almost always included in any compendium – be it film, television or print, noting comedic influences of the 20th/21st century, most recently, We Killed: The Rise of Women in American Comedy (October 2012, Sarah Crichton Books). Paula also appears on “Late Night w/Craig Ferguson” about 3 times a year and she’ll do an occasional editorial for NPR’s “All Things Considered”. If you’re into funny, the Paramount is the place to be and what a historic, iconic place for two big nights of no-holds-barred comedy.
