Danville: Anthony K to headline this month's 'Comedy with Liz Grant and Friends'

Monthly series to also feature comedians Jeen Yee, Wes Hoffman

Laughter aplenty will once again be found in downtown Danville on Thursday, when local comedian Liz Grant returns to the Village Theatre and Art Gallery alongside some of her best comedian friends from across California.

As part of a monthly comedy series held at Danville’s Village Theatre and Art Gallery, “Comedy with Liz Grant and Friends” features Grant as the emcee along with some of the most talented comedians from throughout the Bay Area.

For this month’s headliner, Grant will be joined by her comedy compatriot Anthony K, from Ceres Calif., who will bring his classic “honest” comedy style to downtown Danville.

“Charming and witty, this 10-year veteran is at the top of his storytelling prowess,” Theatre officials said of Anthony K. “Spinning highly personal stories, ranging from being raised by a single mother, to the pitfalls of growing up in a small California town, his engaging manner and slick wordplay make for a great evening of comedy.”

Joining in on the fun will be Jeen Yee a Bay Area comedian who fuses her comedy sets with her multicultural experiences to provide insight into human kind, along with San Jose based comedian Wes Hoffman, who many may know from his comedy-sports podcast “Joke Strap.”

Comedians may use mature themes and language in their material, so theater officials have set an age recommended of 16 years old and up -- but comedy fans under 16 can attend if accompanied by an adult.

The show is set to be held this Thursday (June 20), 7:30 p.m. at the Village Theatre, 233 Front St., Danville. Tickets are $20 if purchased online or $25 at the door. Future shows are scheduled to be held on July 11 and Aug. 8.
