- Long Island comedian and producer Paul Anthony
announces the return of the L.I. College Comedy Tour. The tour will run during the 2010 spring semester, March through May, traveling across Long Island to all participating colleges.
"We're excited about the opportunity to once again tour the colleges of Long Island" said Anthony, producer of the L.I. College Comedy Tour. The College Comedy Tour features some of the brightest up and coming comic talent around, with performances specifically designed for younger college student audiences. He added, "Our comedy shows at Stony Brook Southampton and Dowling College last year were both huge successes. We have so many great colleges across the Island, and many of the comics we work with are actually alumni of the local area colleges. We're looking to perform at as many Long Island colleges as possible and make this an annual event that the students look forward to."
The first performance is scheduled for Friday, March 19, at Stony Brook Southampton, at the Avram Theater at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 public; $5 students. Call the Box Office at 631-632-5152.
The mission of the L.I. College Comedy Tour is three-fold:
• Promote the art of 'live' stand-up comedy.
• Showcase up and coming comics to college audiences across Long Island.
• Provide students with the highest quality College Comedy Tour available.
Paul Anthony is the largest independent producer of comedy shows on Long Island and host of the annual Long Island Comedy Festival. He graduated from St. John's University and the University of Notre Dame. He resides in Massapequa, Long Island with his wife Kathy.
