Les McCurdy from McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre stops by on Casual Friday.

McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre was established in 1988. For ten years, it was located at the Holiday Inn Marina. There was a short run at The Big Kitchen on Clark Road, before the move to its current location in the nostalgic Teatro Theatre. The Theatre underwent almost a complete facelift and was redesigned to meet the specifications of McCurdy’s. If you are a long time resident, you will notice that we kept some of the original architecture. The large front display, the statues in the courtyard, the statuettes and arches in the Theatre, and the chandelier over the exit are all from the old Teatro.

Over the past 22 years, comedians who have performed at McCurdy’s read like a Who’s Who list of the greatest names in comedy: Jeff Foxworthy, Chris Rock, Darrell Hammond, Larry Miller, Tommy Chong, Elayne Boosler, Soupy Sales, Judy Tenuta, Pat Paulsen, Jeff Dunham, Jimmie “JJ” Walker, Jim Breuer, Richard Lewis, Larry “The Cable Guy”, Kevin Pollack, Ron White, Ralphie May, David Brenner and Bobcat Goldthwait. McCurdy’s has also produced charity concerts with such comedic legends as The Smothers Brothers, Phyllis Diller, and Bob Newhart.
