Metro Comedy Plans Charity Show in Philadelphia
Three comedians will appear for a benefit show to support ACHIEVEability.org on July 27th 2011
Comedians Ed Blaze, Nema Williams, and Vince Barnett will bring their side-splitting jokes and antics to the Helium Comedy Club for two exciting shows.
Headliner, Nema Williams, has been seen on Showtime’s LOL Comedy Festival and STARZ Martin Lawrence Presents First Amendment Standup. The show also features Ed Blaze, Co-founder of Metro comedy. Blaze has performed at the DC Improv, Howard University, Gotham Comedy Club in New York City to name a few. His comedy is infused with an array of topics, from politics and current events to human sexuality and marriage, from pop culture to race.
Vince Barnett, host of the show, began his comedy career not far from the bright lights and boardwalk of Atlantic City. It was at the urging of Comedian Kevin Hart that Barnett take a shot at comedy. Vince is a crowd favorite wherever he performs and a voice in comedy that's on the rise.
The show will be held at Helium Comedy Club, 2031 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA. Doors open at 6:15pm for two shows - 7pm and 9:30pm. Admission is $15 with a portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold benefiting ACHIEVEability.ORG.
