Center Stage Comedy Tour

  • Sommore: She was the first female host of ComicView, she’s a Guinness Book of World Records holder, and perhaps most impressively, she’s someone Oprah called “a force to be reckoned with in the new millennium.”
  • Arnez J: This charismatic Hotlanta comic, whose on-stage physicality has drawn comparisons to Jim Carrey, hosted two seasons of BET’s ComicView and has been seen on Def Comedy Jam and his own special, Arnez J.: Racially Motivated, which is now available on Netflix.
  • John Witherspoon: He’s best known as Willie Jones in Friday and as the voice of Robert “Granddad” Freeman in the animated show The Boondocks.
  • Tommy Davidson: Thanks in part to his versatile physicality and spot-on impressions, Tommy’s well known for his stint as a cast member of In Living Color, as well as roles in such blockbusters as Woo, Booty Call, and Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls.

It will be hosted at Oven’s Auditorium starting at 8pm.

#9 Murder-Mystery Dinner

Uptown Charlotte’s murder-mystery dinners begin innocently enough—guests arrive to mingle amid drinks and quiet conversation. As diners munch away, a sudden death interrupts the feasting. A detective arrives to determine who the killer is, inevitably laying blame on one of the audience members. Tablemates work together to prove their innocence and find the real killer through an interactive performance full of hilarious suspects and eye-catching costumes, all the while dining on the included three-course meal and taking advantage of drink specials.
