Larger Than Life

Larger Than Life

  When you’re watching someone who is 6 feet 6 inches tall and absolutely hilarious, the phrase “Larger Than Life” tends to run through your mind. This is the case in all respects with Jim McCue. His staggering height is only matched by his love for comedy and his big Bostonian personality. Not only does […]

Not The Norm

Not The Norm

  Writers are often told, “Write what you know.” Comedians seem to have an innate understanding of this rule, as well. Humor is all around us, in the mundane, day-to-day experiences, in the funny ways people related to one another, in our reactions to odd circumstances. And some gifted individuals, like Norm Stulz, have the […]

A Cappella

A Cappella

Just like any good story-teller, comedians who have outside interests and hobbies always bring a lot of layers to their show. That’s exactly why Ron Feingold is such a talented showman. He’s definitely funny, of course, but he has so much more to offer- and that’s why McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre is eagerly offering him to […]

Whiskey, Cancer+ Bad Decisions

Whiskey, Cancer+ Bad Decisions

      If you haven’t heard of Derek Richards yet, it’s okay. It’s not your fault. We don’t blame you. It could be because you’re not on tour with the U.S. Army, or possibly because you’re not hanging out in Las Vegas as often as Derek. Maybe you haven’t checked Sirius XM lately. Whatever […]

Learning Thai

Dear Thai Rivera, We are so excited for you headline at McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre this week! We think it’s really important that everyone in the Sarasota area come out sometime between September 19-22 to check out your show, and here’s why: First, you’re super likeable! And that seems to be some sort of paradox, considering […]

A Little Funny

A Little Funny

It’s an unfortunate fact of life that many comedians fuel their comedic prowess with tales of bitterness, awkwardness, or self-deprecation. Not often does one find a comedian full of true optimism, happiness or positivity. Rob Little, this week’s headliner at McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre, is one of those rare breed that brings all the fun to […]

Hold My Beer

Hold My Beer

  You know you’ve encountered a truly funny person when they have the ability to step away from the script, interact with the crowd, and go rogue while heckling the audience or joking with them about something unpredictable. McCurdy’s upcoming headliner, Al Romas, is exactly this kind of person. A natural-born comedian, Al has seen […]

Rock On!

Rock On!

  Michael Mack and his Faces of Rock The definition of parody is “a humorous or satirical imitation of a serious piece of literature or writing.” With satire being one of the most intelligent forms of humor, and imitation being one of the highest forms of flattery, it’s easy to see why Michael Mack’s musical […]

UNAPOLOGETIC

UNAPOLOGETIC

  They say much wisdom comes with age, but Tracy Smith, this week’s headlining comedian at McCurdy’s, is capitalizing on that adage. With a few years under her belt, she comes to the stage ready to set the kids straight and tell a few war stories from the trenches of singlehood in the process. With […]

Adulting

Adulting

    This week, McCurdy’s is pleased to host Aaron Kleiber on our stage. Get ready to relate to adulthood in completely new and real ways. Aaron is the kind of comedian that says the things you’ve always been thinking about marriage, parenting and adulting in general, but never would’ve said out loud. But Aaron […]

The Comedy Barbarian

The Comedy Barbarian

  This week at McCurdy’s, we’re featuring headliner Mike McCarthy, otherwise known as The Comedy Barbarian. Straight from Boston, Mike wears his Irish heritage as a badge of honor, bringing all of his relentless energy and ability to drink anyone under the table with him. As seen on The Showtime Network and Comedy Central, Mike […]

Dirty-Sexy-Funny

  5 Reasons You Might Not Love April Macie (but all the reasons we do!)   April cusses. A lot. If a strong, intelligent woman with a mouth on her is somehow offensive to your archaic ideals of a little woman in an apron making dinner, this will be a show you might want to […]

Blue For You

Blue For You

      7/24 Humor Institute / Open Mic Night You never know when you might stumble upon the next big thing in comedy. Many comedians get their start simply by showing up and showing off. The students in our Humor Institute took the plunge, came to learn, and on Wednesday night, we feature the […]
