Tuesday Night Comedy with "Jammin'" Jay Lamont, Kirk McHenry +!
Join us every Tuesday for an unforgettable belly-splitting evening of comedy! Each week we showcase 5-7 different comedians at the top of their game. Tuesday Night Live Comedy features fresh talent on the rise, alongside veteran comics from around the world. Come see what the fun is all about! Kirk McHenry was born and raised in Oakland, CA and blends all of his experiences together into a story-telling brand of comedy that has been likened to Bill Cosby with a Richard Pryor twist.From entertaining troops overseas to being featured on BET's ComicView, BET's One Mic Stand, and Jamie Foxx Laffapalooza, Kirk is well on his way to becoming a household name. Kirk has opened for comedic stars such as Paul Mooney, Bobby Slayton, Gary Owen, Charlie Murphy, Tommy Davidson and Eddie Griffin. We're thrilled to welcome Kirk back to the Throckmorton with more of his dynamic side-splitting comedy. Sean McBride Born in the Mid West, but raised in Western New England, it's no surprise that Sean McBride is now one of the fastest rising comics to come out of Southern California. A well traveled man indeed, but that's part of what helps Sean relate to people no matter where he's performing. After quitting what could have been a lucrative career working for the NFL Network, the Comedy Gods recognized Sean's ultimate sacrifice, and graced him with a breakout performance in the film, National Lampoon's "Dirty Jokes: The Movie", starring "The Unknown Comic" Murray Langston, and currently airing on SHOWTIME. Sean then hit the road as the opening act for the writer and director of the now cult hit film, legendary headlining comedian Vic Dunlop ("The Richard Pryor Show", "Make Me Laugh"), and has been climbing the stand up ranks ever since. Sean is quickly becoming a fan favorite all over the country. With hip, clever writing and a boyish charm, it's no surprise that people leave Sean's shows feeling like he's been living next door to them their whole lives.

Jammin Jay Lamont is not just a comedian; he is a multi-talented entertainer. Known to many as the "The Human IPOD," Jay has performed on major concert and comedy stages with performers like The Gap Band, The O'Jays, Anita Baker, Ledisi, and Jamie Foxx to name a few. He also opened for Mary J. Blige in 13 cities on her Libration Concert tour. Since moving to Los Angeles Jay has performed on BET's Comicview, Comedy Central, Showtime At The Apollo, Tom Joyner Family Reunion, Russell Simmon's Def Comedy Jam, Byron Allens "Comic Unleashed", Jamie Foxx presents "Laffapalooza" and Martin Lawrence's "1st Amendment" and several other TV shows. Jay adapts to any type of audience and delivers a one-of-a-kind show night after night. He is a clean upscale entertainer that mixes a dash of comedy with a sprinkle of impressions and a hand full of music. Scott LaRose, isn't he that tall, hilarious, good looking, comic actor guy? Yes but isn't he now that, actor/DGA Director guy? Yes and also the same guy that Bill Brownstein said was "destined to be the next stand-up superstar" at The Montreal Comedy Festival 98. In the world of comedy Scott LaRose has carved a niche that many emulate but few can follow. In Los Angeles, he's on the "favorites" list of club owners Jamie Masada (The Laugh Factory) who says, "Scott LaRose is... comedy goldmine" and Bud Freidman (The Improv) who says, "He's a sitcom waiting to happen!" But stand-up comedy is only one facet of Scott's career. Ever since being chosen (by audition only) to go to N.Y.U.'s prestigious Theater Program, his reputation as an actor has gained momentum with each role he plays.
