Visani Comedy Night to benefit SW Florida Honor Flight

December 29th at Visani
Social Event collides with Community Involvement Event

Enjoy a fun night with friends while supporting the Southwest Florida Honor Flight Hub to raise money.  Each $10 donation per ticket goes straight to Honor Flight.  Larger donations are graciously accepted.  Visani requires a two-item purchase (2 drinks, an appetizer and drink, dinner/drink - whatever - just two items)

If you'd like to go, please sign up here and contact Donna Lee to drop off your donation-payment by December3.  If we don't use the tickets allotted for FFC, the hub needs time to sell them to the public.  

Show starts at 8pm, but it's recommended to be there by 7:30pm to order drinks before the show.  If you plan to eat dinner there, you should arrive by 7pm.

Comedian Information:

Al Romas began his career in comedy, while serving in the U.S. Navy, cutting his teeth in the open-mic circuit of Tidewater, Virginia. Al’s performances in Norfolk bars and Virginia Beach clubs before audiences of rowdy college students, rowdier sailors, and sunburned tourists allowed him to hone his act, and he soon graduated to paid gigs throughout the region. Within a few short years of his start as an anonymous open-miker , Al found himself living in New York, performing in New York City in clubs such as The Comedy Cellar, Stand Up NY and Carolines, while also logging thousands of miles on the road. Al’s hilarious material and his natural rapport with his audiences also got him gigs working with some of the biggest names in comedy, such as Jerry Seinfeld , Jim Carrey, Jimmy Fallon and Dennis Miller. Al is a firmly established headliner who has delighted audiences in an impressive list of venues ranging from Radio City Music Hall for ESPN’s Espy Awards to Las Vegas, Atlantic City and various major Cruise Lines. Al also has numerous television appearances under his belt, including VH1’s “Standup Spotlight” , A&E’s “Evening at the Improv” , MTV’s “Half Hour Comedy Hour” and Comedy Central’s “Short Attention Span Theater.” Al was featured in the Sunday New York Times in an article titled, “Clever, How They Earn That Laugh” about comedians and the different ways they make a living. In 2013, Al authored a best selling ‘e’ book titled, “How About a Hand for the Last Guy” detailing his life in comedy. It is available on Al’s material covers a broad range of topics, from growing up on suburban Long Island to marriage and much, much more. Al knows his audience, and his give and take with each crowd ensures that no two performances will be alike. as told to Clifford Fewel in “Two Drink Minimum,” Al says of his skills: “I can go from doing a 1,000 seat theater to a bar gig in front of 100 people. I enjoy both because they require different skills. The ability to work anywhere is what takes time. Luckily, I still enjoy the process.”
