Ohio native Lori Graves started comedy on a drunken dare. She entered some amateur contests at a couple clubs and – gasp! – won. It was then that she realized, at ripe age of 37, what she wanted to be when she grew up: a comedian.

Lori has a unique perspective on life; her comedy is riddled with examples of what a day in the (not-so-average) life of Lori looks like! She has worked with nationally touring comics and also heads the longest running non-club comedy open mic in Ohio. Additionally, Lori works USO events throughout the year. Find Lori on all social media outlets, Pandora, or read her entertainment column for Gannet Company, Inc.

Kevin Lee. Submitted photo

Kevin Lee has been seen on five seasons of BET’s “Comic View” and his distinctive skills have allowed him to share the stage with legends such as Gladys Knight, Chris Rock, Steve Harvey, Whitney Houston, Chris Tucker and Sinbad. He performed for the troops in Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm and continues to entertain military bases around the world today, including Korea, Germany, Italy and Japan. Wynton Marsalis featured Lee in his “The Magic Hour Tour” which sold out from New York to Los Angeles in 2004. As a high-energy, one-of-a-kind performer, Lee has brought audiences to their feet worldwide. A rare and true talent, Kevin Lee is not to be missed!

Tickets are $15, all seats reserved. This event is BYOB! Show begins at 8 p.m.

Additionally, subscriptions for the entire 2017-2018 Comedy Night Series at the Playhouse are still on sale! Ensure yourself an entire year of laughs and save 20 percent over individual ticket prices!
