The Love to Laugh Comedy Tour will take the DPAC stage on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2018. The show headlines veteran actor/comedian Arnez J, Instagram sensation Kountry Wayne, actress/comedienne Cocoa Brown (from Tyler Perry’s “For Better or For Worse”), comic Special K (from the Rickey Smiley Morning Radio Show), and is hosted by radio host Brian Dawson of K97.5.
The Love to Laugh Comedy Tour brings a fresh mix of seasoned and rising comedic voices from the stage, radio and screen to DPAC for Valentine’s Day 2018.
Arnez J’s charisma and physical agility make his performances unforgettable. Appearances on Showtime, Comedy Central and Russell Simmons’ “Def Comedy Jam” eventually landed him the coveted hosting slot on BET’s “Comic View” for two seasons. His hilarious comedy special “Radically Motivated” is now available on Netflix.
Kountry Wayne is a superstar comedian on the rise. With a social media following of over 3.5 million fans, Wayne Colley is blazing the internet with his skits and parodies, leaving fans in stitches and solidifying him as a name to watch.
Cocoa Brown has enjoyed tremendous success in both the comedy and Hollywood industries with on-screen credits including Tyler Perry’s “For Better or Worse” on Oprah’s OWN Network, full-feature film “Lakeview Terrace” and most recently, a leading role in the blockbuster movie “Single Moms Club”. With a nomination for a Screen Actors Guild award under her belt, the veteran comedienne continues to impress audiences nationwide.
“Special K” Karl Douglas’ comedic bits are heard daily by millions as the co-host of the nationally syndicated Rickey Smiley Morning Radio Show. Since 2008, Special K has served as the comedy writer for the show, and his stand-up performances help earn him a spot in the ranks of rising comedic stars.
Durham native and rising comedian DWISSH will open the show, giving local fans the laughs they’ve come to expect and love.
