The Arts Center Theatre, the recently acquired venue at the Marco town Center, will be presenting a monthly series of stand-up comedy nights beginning on Saturday, October 15, 2022.
“This is something we thought about the moment we signed the lease,” said Charlie Blum, Chairman of the Arts Center Theatre Committee. “We’re excited that Larry Venturino, a comic and producer who resides in Southwest Florida, was able to assemble an outstanding roster of comedians for the series that will run monthly through March of 2023.
The series will kick off on Saturday, October 15 with shows at 7pm and 9:30 pm. Al Ernst, who has appeared on Comedy Central, Carnival Cruise Lines and MTV will headline both shows. Appearing with Al will be comedians Larry Venturino and George Gilbert.
Tickets for the comedy series will go on sale beginning Friday, September16 at noon.
Hyla Crane, the executive director of the Marco Island Center for the Arts and the Arts Center Theatre, commented, “Bringing in a stand-up comedy series, in addition to our previously announced season of plays and musicals, was icing on the cake and more events to come.”
This comedy series is in addition to the previously announced full theatrical season that will open with Apartment 3A by Jeff Daniels and run from October 26-November 13. For additional information, please visit the website at https://www.marcoislandart.org/.
