AMERICAN rising star of comedy Shuler King is this evening's featured performer at special edition of Johnny Live Comedy Bar at 100 Hope Road in St Andrew. Showtime is 8:00 pm.

“We wanted to bring a different flair to Johnny Live Comedy Bar, and Shuler King is just hilarious and the right fit for what we want. He's well known as an up-and-coming international comedian and we really just decided to grab him while we still can afford him,” said Daley. “We have to be thankful for the growth that is happening with Comedy Bar and what better way to show gratitude than to have a bigger and better edition of the show.”

King hails from Sumter in South Carolina. Comedy is his passion, but he has taken a rather unusual path to get to where he is thus far. He graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BA in media arts and later broke the Internet with his hilariously crafted social media reaction videos. King has opened for some of the most notable and talented comedians and comediennes in the industry. He credits his parents' strict yet loving upbringing, his harsh surroundings growing up. and the state of the country today with giving him his comedic style, which he describes as “raw”.

Alexisse Chin, marketing manager at 100 explained: “Well, we have been doing big things with Comedy Bar at 100, every Tuesday the show grows in popularity, and [it] even attracts foreigners to the sports lounge at 100 for the show. Johnny Live Comedy Bar boasts being the only weekly comedy show in the English-speaking Caribbean, and we are happy that 100 Hope Road is its home.”

The show promises to be a bellyful of laughs with the local comedy all stars. Also performing will be Daley, Dufton “Duffy” Shepherd and Kathy Grant. The show will be hosted by Boasy Boy Floyd.
