Known for his off-the-cuff humor, Tommy Sinbazo will headline Lake Shore Volunteer Fire Company’s comedy night on May 12.
LSVFC To Host Comedy Night Fundraiser
Need a good laugh? Here’s a way to get your fill for a good cause. Lake Shore Volunteer Fire Company (LSVFC) will host a comedy night at 8:00pm on May 12 at the firehouse at 4498 Mountain Road.
The show will feature Tommy Sinbazo along with Sonny Fuller, Josh Kuderna and Bill Monaghan.
Sinbazo is a familiar face at LSVFC. He’s performed there three times in the past as part of the Comedy's Best Kept Secret Tour. This year, Sinbazo is headlining and overseeing his own show.
“I got some of my favorite local comics together for this adult comedy show,” said Sinbazo, who jokes about everything from relationships to childhood and crafting. “It takes place the week I get back from doing a week of shows for our troops in Jordan, so it will be nice to perform for some familiar faces.”
With an in-your-face style, Fuller has worked with renowned comedians like Damon Wayans, Jim Norton and Dave Attell. Fuller has loved comedy since he was a young boy.
“I grew up loving comedy, so much that my Uncle Jamal would take me to see every performer who came to town. When I was around 10, he took me to see Richard Pryor. I was amazed, even more amazed that my uncle managed to get us backstage! I got to speak to Pryor for a short minute and I nervously blurted out a joke. He laughed and said, ‘Kid, you're gonna be a legend!’ I know he was just being nice, but it gave me the confidence to be a performer.”
Fuller has traveled the country while performing comedy for about 10 years. “Ironically, my comedy colleagues dubbed me ‘The Legend,’” Fuller said. “Funny how the world works.”
A Baltimore resident, Kuderna uses stories from his own life and enjoys improvising. “I enjoy making people laugh and performing,” he said. “It’s nice to fill that hole in my soul for a bit.”
Monaghan has performed in the tri-state area of Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia for 10 years and is known for his caustic one-liners. “I always enjoy doing shows with these guys – definitely some of the best comics around,” he said. “Always a great show.”
Doors open at 7:00pm, and food and drinks will be available. Funds raised will be used for equipment and for a new fire hall.
“We have a good time. It’s a good night out,” said organizer Debbie Kartub, who emphasized that the humor is geared for adults.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door.
