CORPUS CHRISTI–A comedy show with big name entertainers will be making a stop in Corpus Christi on Saturday night and it’s sure to be a bundle of laughs.
The show will be held at the Texas A&M Corpus Christi Performing Arts Center and will be hosted by Corpus Christi Black in Government non-profit group or BIG.
Schedule to appear at the event are Eddie B., Gary Owen and Jay Lamont. All have been seen on Comedy Central, BET and Starz cable networks.
“This Show will not only bring much laughter to Corpus Christi,” said Shelena Thomas-Arceneaux, an event coordinator for BIG, ” It will also bring more opportunities for deserving students. The proceeds for this show are slated to benefit student scholarships, provide programs of service to the community and our workforce.”
Thomas-Arceneaux said it’s rare you have a show of this high-caliber comedy talent in the Coastal Bend.
“This show will be something new and exciting for Corpus Christi,” Thomas-Arceneaux said. “Larger cities bring shows like this all the time. It’s nice to not have to travel to enjoy a nice comedy show.”
