A night of laughs is slated to benefit the Stratford High boys basketball program this Friday.
Comedians Teddy Smith and Guomba Johnny are slated to perform at the event, which will be held from 6:30-9:30 p.m., at the Stratford Baldwin Center, 1000 West Broad Street, in Stratford.
Ticket prices are $30 per person with all proceeds going to the Red Devils’ boys basketball program.
According to the event’s website, Smith started his comedy career in Washington, DC where he quickly rose through the ranks, spurring his move to comedy’s capital, New York City. Smith has opened for the Isley Brothers at The Tropicana in Atlantic City, performed at the “HBO Aspen Comedy Festival,” writes for “The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show” and is currently filming his two-week comedy tour in Amsterdam. He continues to perform nationally to earn financing for his feature script “Macaroni”!
Johnny has shared the stage with many of the top acts in comedy such as Andrew Dice Clay, Mario Cantone, George Wallace, Jay Mohr, Tommy Davidson, Martin Lawrence, Colin Quinn, Paul Rodriguez, Caroline Rhea, Dom Irrera, Richard Jeni, Bobby Slayton, David Alan Grier, Pat Cooper and Jerry Seinfeld. His comedic sense brought him success in other entertainment genres as well, and he co-created the television show “Letʼs Get Stupid” and sold it to Telepictures.
