Fabulously Funny Comedy Festival
Comedy heavyweight Mike Epps brings “The Fabulously Funny Comedy Festival” to Oakland Arena. Epps will lead the show with an all-star lineup including Sommore, Gary Owen, Lavell Crawford, Mark Curry and Tony Sco.
Highly praised for his performance in the Netflix comedy “Dolemite Is My Name” starring opposite Eddie Murphy, Epps is generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers for being not only one of the funniest comic actors in town, but also for his burgeoning dramatic talent.
In her more than 20-year career, award-winning comedienne of “Chandelier Status,” Sommore, has become a trailblazer for women in the comedy business as one of the most successful comedians in the U.S. and abroad.
Gary Owen is one of America’s most beloved comedians, having been proclaimed by Ebony magazine as Black America’s “Favorite White Comedian.” Audiences can see Owen in his most recent comedy special, “I Got My Associates” currently on Showtime.
Lavell Crawford is quickly climbing the comedic ranks and becoming one of the hottest stars in the biz today. Lavell first gained national exposure on NBC’s hit reality series “Last Comic Standing.”
Perhaps best known for starring in his own hit television sitcom "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper," which ran for five seasons on ABC, and for hosting "Showtime At The Apollo," comedian, actor, host Mark Curry is packing the laughs as one of the top national touring comedy acts.
With a rich blend of experience in television and radio, his professionalism and unique talent has made him a favorite on comedy stages, radio airwaves and television screens for years.
