FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TICKLE ME TUESDAYS IN NOVEMBER:
INCLUDING EASTON’S OWN ALEX HOUSE!
Allentown, PA-Tickle Me Tuesdays, the Lehigh Valley’s only stand-up comedy showcase regularly featuring local talent alongside professional comics from New York & Philadelphia, will be held on the 10th and 17th of November in the Allentown Brew Works’ High Gravity Lounge. Each show features 5-6 amateur & semi-professional comics from the Lehigh Valley and beyond, and each show ends with a professional headliner.
The following is the headliner information for November:
November 10th headliner â€“ Alex House. Based in Easton, Alex is a two time winner in the Bud Light’s Ladies Of Laughter Comedy Contest, has participated in the Toyota Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival and the Arizona Women’s Funny Fest. She has also been on ABC’s “The View” twice in the course of two weeks and was one of the East Coast Semi-finalists chosen out of thousands of comics on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”. When she’s not performing comedy, she studies acting with coach JoAnna Beckson, whose past students include Ray Romano, Dave Chappelle and Brett Butler.
November 17th headliner â€“ Kenny Michaels. One of the hosts of the Conte & Kenny radio show, broadcast on CringeHumorRadio.com every Monday night, Kenny Michaels has been making his way through the New Jersey comedy scene in the past few years. Now often a headliner at clubs and colleges up and down the East Coast, Kenny has also opened for Otto & George.
Both of these shows are at 8pm on their respective dates, with doors opening at 7pm. Tickle Me Tuesdays are hosted and produced by Bethlehem-based professional comedian Ryan Hill; Breinigsville-based comic Randy Tonge will be the guest-host for the November 10th show.
Tickle Me Tuesdays are normally the first and third Tuesday of every month; November’s shows were changed due to Election Day. The Allentown Brew Works is located at 812 W. Hamilton Street in Allentown. Advance tickets are not available, but reservations can be made by calling the Brew Works at 610.433.7777.
