Love and laughter collide this Valentine’s Day as the Comedy & Blues Tour makes it way to Beale Street at the New Daisy Theatre.
BET & Comedy Central brand name funny guys B-Cole and Honest John will be serving up the laughs while the world renowned Blues Diva Toni Green will be taking the stage and delivering the blues. This show is hosted by my good friend Comedian Spank E, one of the busiest hosts in the Mid-South.
Here’s more good news: this show will make monthly visits to the New Daisy and will also make its way to Batesville, Miss. in April as well. The Batesville show will feature Bruh Man from “Martin.” I know you remember Bruh Man from the “FIF FLO” right?
You can purchase your tickets at the New Daisy Box Office, online at comedyandbluestour.com or call 662-855-1601. Also, I will be giving away tickets on my Facebook page this Friday (Feb. 10), so stay tuned.
After you catch the “Lovers Laugh Jam,” you should do something different and go on a carriage ride with your mate. I know you’ve been seeing those horse and carriages all over downtown for the longest and thought to yourself, “You know, we should do that one day.”
Well, here’s your chance! Call them at 901-527-7542. Do something different for a change, lol!
