Event Description:

Festival of Laughs featuring Gary Owen, Sommore & Tony Rock will be at the Shubert Theater on March 1st.

Comedian heavyweights Sommore, Gary Owen and Tony Rock are set to bring the Festival of Laughs to Shubert stage. Each year, the Festival of Laughs unites some of the most popular names in comedy on stage. The highly celebrated entertainers will bring down the house with their sharp wit, unbridled humor and hysterical storytelling for a night fans won’t want to miss!

SOMMORE: In her more than 20-year career, award-winning comedienne of “Chandelier Status,” Sommore, has become a trailblazer for women in the comedy business as one of the most successful comedians in the U.S. and abroad. Sommore has been featured in a number of hit films including "Soul Plane," "Something New" and "Friday After Next." Her all-new self-produced comedy special, "A Queen With No Spades" recently premiered on Showtime.

GARY OWEN: Having performed to sold-out audiences in all the major comedy clubs and theatres across the country, Gary Owen is one of America’s most beloved comedians, having been proclaimed by Ebony magazine as Black America’s “Favorite White Comedian.” Audiences can see Owen in his most recent comedy special, “I Got My Associates” currently on Showtime.  Last year, Owen starred in his own docuseries “The Gary Owen Show” on BET, which chronicled his dynamic and interracial family life with his wife and children in small-town Ohio. Film credits include “Meet The Blacks,” “Think Like A Man,” “Think Like A Man Too,” “Ride Along,” “Little Man,” “Daddy Day Care,” and “College.”

TONY ROCK: Comedian, Actor, Producer Tony Rock is the hardest working man in show business. Rock has proven to be one of television's best hosts having played the role of ringleader on HBO’s weekly stand-up comedy series "All Def Comedy," NBA TV's "The Warm Up," along with BET’s "Black Card Revoked" and "Apollo Live," all while co-starring in his first primetime network series, CBS' "Living Biblically."
