CASA GRANDE — When the Mellow B Comedy Show opens at the Paramount Theater in May, organizers hope to see audiences laughing and having a good time.
Hosted by DJ Mellow B, the show features the comedic talents of Arizona-based comedians Ray Love, Jas Clay, Kingley Amukamara and Wolf Brown.
It opens at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 22.
Paramount Theater Manager Rickey Robinson said the show will be a night of jokes and laughter.
“The comedy show came about from the people of Casa Grande asking me about bringing stand-up comedians to the theater,” he said.
The theater has focused on bringing a variety of shows to Casa Grande audiences.
“Many patrons mention that they love coming to the theater to see the stage plays, murder mystery dinners, magic shows and tribute concerts. Now Casa Grande wanted me to add a stand-up comedy show,” Robinson said. “So I put together a team of funny and entertaining comedians from the Valley for an adult night out of jokes and laughter.”
He said he will also be on the search for local amateurs and professionals for future events.
“I plan to put this comedy night in rotation on the theater event calendar for 2021,” Robinson said.
General admission tickets to the comedy show are $25 each, VIP seating $35 and a private balcony table $45.
The theater will have food and beverages available for purchase.
Doors open at 7 p.m.
An after party begins at 10 p.m. and features old-school dance music.
Tickets are available online at www.triplerrrproduction.com.
