About the event
Ithaca, New York, February 18th -- Enjoy a 3 Course Dinner and the best of NYS Comedy hosted by Upstate's favorite comedian, Kenneth McLaurin, with nationally touring headliner Yolanda Smilez, and food provided by Ithaca's premier Soul Food caterer, Lotsa Love Catering.
North Carolina native, Kenneth, has long called himself, "The Funniest Person You've Never Heard Of." But his first album, Cuttin' Up Comedy at the Shop, his Kitchen Theatre show Southern Fried Ithaca, Comedy on The Commons, his recent production “So You Think You’re Anti-Racist Competition, and being named Ithaca’s Best Comedian is rapidly changing that. He has written plays for the One Minute Play Festivals at the Kitchen Theatre. His project 10 Short Films About Race was featured as a part of the Spring Writes Literary Festival and is scheduled for production once we are out of the pandemic.
Currently, Kenneth and his wife SingTrece are producing and performing their own micro musical Singing Notes and Slinging Jokes.
"Life's a joke, find the funny" is his life's motto, and all that knows him will tell you Kenneth, has certainly found it.
Witty, Clever, Insightful, sometimes Shocking, but always Funny is what you get with Kenneth!
Yolanda Smilez is intelligent, strong, and also Funny as Hell. Her smile alone captivates and commands your attention even before she speaks. Ms. Smilez keeps them laughing from the church to the mainstream stages her comedic intellect is very flexible. She's known for her clever but raunchy jokes that keep comedy rooms and shows filled with laughter.
Yolanda was runner-up in Rochester's Funniest Person 2012. She is one of the longest-running champions of the LOL Thursday Competitions and won Rochester's Apollo showcase.
She tours nationally and had opened many other opportunities has led her to travel from city to city and open for comics names such as Michael Blackson, DL Hughley, Eddie Griffin, Thea, Bill Bellamy, and many others.
