World According to L.A.
McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre- week of December 9-15
L.A. Hardy- Dec. 11-15
This week, we welcome with open arms world-class comedian L.A. Hardy! Funny and real, L.A. Hardy doesn’t spare anyone, even his wife or kids. In fact, they’re the subjects of some of his best material! While he knew even as a child he wanted to be a comedian when he grew up, real life delayed his dream a bit. But sometimes life happens for a reason. In this case, it left Hardy with a toolbox full of experiences he draws from, making hilarious comedic material. As a storyteller, his social commentary on everyday situations makes Hardy a favorite wherever he goes.
As a veteran and versatile performer, Hardy toured with the Comics of Duty Tour to Iraq in 2003. With this tour, he entertained troops in over 35 different countries. He has also been seen more recently on Laughs TV, Comedy TV, BET, FOX, Comic’s Unleashed with Byron Allen, BET’s Comicview 3x’s, ABC’s According to Jim, MTV, VH1, and The Fuse Network. His film credits include Universal Remote, China Dolls and Guess Who with Bernie Mac.
Come see what makes L.A. Hardy a favorite in the neighborhood and internationally this week at McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre from Wednesday, Dec. 11- Sunday, Dec. 15. You’ll laugh until your sides hurt and take new material home with you to share with your friends.
