Live standup professional comedy in Lake County continues to enjoy its recent revival and Twin Pine Casino in Middletown is the center of attention this summer.
Comics from around the country, including such names as Sinbad and Mickey Joseph have performed at the “Comedy Corner” in the Manzanita Bar and Grill located in the newly remodeled Twin Pine Casino and hotel.
The twice-monthly programs, which are free, include Bay Area comics as well as nationally known touring comedians.
The show this Thursday begins at 7 p.m.
Christian Reyes will open and host the Thursday program, which will feature Adam Stone. Stone has worked all the respected clubs across America.
Rick D’Elia is the headliner. D’Elia has performed in Lake County along with local comic Marc Yaffee, and has worked with Stone as a team for several years.
D’Elia has been seen frequently on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and has recently written and produced two comedy related documentary films, one of which, “The Godfathers of Comedy,” is scheduled for an October presentation on Spike TV.
His “Going Native” production will premier in November on ShowTime.
Future shows will continue biweekly, with the next show scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 10, when Pat McCoy will open add Dave Bothun as the feature act, with Yaffee returning in the headliner slot.
