Jan. 24-25: Headliner Zorba Jevon Hughes and feature Iris Benson
Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Zorba started doing comedy at the age of 16. "I couldn't get in the comedy club so I played wherever I could. Because I hit puberty early, I had a full beard and could do bars." When Zorba turned 21, he hit his home comedy club, Comedy Caravan, and others throughout the U.S. His influences include Richard Pryor, Rodney Dangerfield, Dick Gregory and Woody Allen. His cerebral one-liners and sagacious style of comedy has made him popular among his peers and earned him a loyal following. Make sure not to miss the three most beautiful words in comedy: Zorba Jevon Hughes.
Iris Benson has, for the most part accomplished nothing. She is comedian because no other profession will have her and that includes drug dealing and prostitution.
