Side Splitters Comedy Club in Tampa, FL is proud to host The MIDNIGHT SWINGER December 16 - 19. FREE ADMISSION when you bring in an unwrapped toy! Call for details! All donations benefit Metropolitan Ministries!
Call him cocky, call him confident, but never call him dull. The Midnight Swinger erupts onto the stage like the volcano in front of the Mirage Hotel in a fresh and original, over the top event that has been called "sharp-witted," "clever" and "classy."
Putting the show back in showman, The Midnight Swinger combines the style and cool of a 60's Las Vegas performer with the flash and excitement of a 21st century Super Bowl halftime extravaganza.
More than just a stand-up comedian, the Midnight Swinger is proud to be called a throwback entertainer. That's right, an entertainer! The Swinger believes in more than just standing behind the microphone and telling jokes, and doing more than just a simple "comedy show." The Midnight Swinger puts on a spectacle that leaves the audience LAUGHIN', SINGIN' and SWINGIN'.
The Swinger always wears the sharpest threads no matter where he is performing, and stylin' and profilin' with an oversized pompadour. The Swinger will be the first to tell you, "Damn, I Look Good," his battle cry before, during and after every show.
The never subtle or soft spoken Midnight Swinger heats up the room as he puts on a classic Las Vegas style show filled with great comedy, music, singing and dancing. And when the show is over you will walkout with a smile on your face yelling DAMN, I LOOK GOOD!
Appearing Next Weekend- AL ROMAS, December 22 - 23, 26.
Al began his career in comedy in the mid 1980s, 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 with a day job, Al found himself living in New York, working full-time as a standup comic and logging tens of thousands of miles while working clubs and colleges up and down the East Coast. Al's hilarious material and his natural rapport with his audiences also got him gigs opening for some of the biggest names in comedy during the late 80s/early 90s, names such as Jerry Seinfeld 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 the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines to Las Vegas, with countless gigs in between all over the country. Al also has numerous television appearances under his belt, including VH-1's "Standup Spotlight" A&E's "Evening at the Improv" and Comedy Central's "Short Attention Span Theater."
Al's material covers a broad range of topics, from marriage and divorce (he's done both), to growing up in 1970's suburban Long Island (think "The Brady Bunch" meets "The Ice Storm"), and much, much more
