FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Heroes of Humor Come To NOLA
Professionally touring comedians King Rich and Kyle Davis arrive in New Orleans for a special performance at La Nuit Comedy Theater on the “Heroes of Humor Tour.”
Wilmington NC – January 6, 2011 – It has been two years since professional comedians KING RICH and KYLE DAVIS (collectively known as the Justice League of Comedy) first hit the road and began bringing hero-sized laughs to audiences across the nation. 2010 was spent touring over forty cities around the country (see a partial list at: justiceleagueofcomedy.com/credits), but they are now making their debut in New Orleans with a special one-night engagement at La Nuit Comedy Theatre (5039 Freret St, New Orleans LA) on their new “Heroes of Humor” 2011 American tour.
In November of 2009, the Justice League of Comedy filmed their first DVD release at Nutt St Comedy Room in their hometown of Wilmington NC (an all-new revised version of which will be available at the shows). A little over a year and well over ten-thousand miles later, the Heroes of Humor celebrate a New Orleans arrival after having seen more of the country (i.e. interstates) and each other than they thought they could stand.
"We've been fortunate," claims Justice League of Comedy founder King Rich, "to expand our reach and perform across the country … from Montana to Texas to New York City. These days, everybody needs a laugh and we're just trying to be the heroes that fill that need. But going to New Orleans and performing for our friends and fans in the area … now that promises to be something very special and an exciting way to kick off the new year."
About the Justice League of Comedy
Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall stages in a single bound! -- Look! Up on the stage! It's a guy! It's a microphone! It's the Justice League of Comedy! Yes, the JLC ... strange visitors from another planet (or at least, neighborhood), who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men! Fighting a never-ending battle for truth, justice and a laughing audience!
KING RICH is one of the fastest rising comedians working in the industry today. He has appeared on HBO, TBS and the upcoming feature film Writer's Block. He has headlined comedy venues from coast to coast, including recently headlining the Dallas Comedy Festival, and made television appearances on Sex & the City, Forensic Files and a Telly-Award winning episode of The New Detectives. His writing has been produced nationally and off-off Broadway and has been honored by the Midtown International Theatre Festival (NYC) and the Innovative Theatre Awards. He has two children (Derek and Ty) who mean the world to him and are the source of his smile.
KYLE DAVIS is one of the hottest rising comedic stars in the nation. He was fortunate enough to be raised in a community that was supportive of the arts and his participation in them. He made his show-business debut at the age of five when he was cast as an extra in Matlock ... he didn't have any lines and his scene was eventually cut because the producers thought he was "too cute." As he grew older he realized that actors scare him and turned his attention to stand-up comedy. In a very short span of time he has entertained audiences from coast to coast and, in addition to working frequently with JLC partner King Rich, has also worked with headliners including Gary Conrad, MG Gaskin, Mello Mike and a host of others.
