The Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA) new Tempe Comedy Concert Series is helping to fill the void left with the closing of the Tempe Improv last year.  I know that I was not alone in feeling sad when the Improv closed its doors.  After all, it was, for many years, one of the country’s most prominent comedy clubs, playing a huge role in advancing the careers of some very funny and famous comedians. Now, thanks to the TCA, we can look forward to once again enjoying great comedy live in Tempe.

This Friday the TCA will present comic Chris Bennett, who definitely has some impressive comedy credentials.  He made his TV debut on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show and has appeared at numerous clubs and festivals around the country. His unique style of comedy has awarded him the title of the funniest actor in New York at the then named New York Improv. He also won the Funniest Person in the Valley Contest, the 2006 Southwest Comedy Festival and The Ha Ha Comedy Café’s Contest in North Hollywood, Calif. The night will include a special appearance by 91-year-old comic Gert the Joke Lady.  This show is recommended for ages 16 and older.

There will be laughs aplenty at the TCA’s Comedy Concert Series in the weeks ahead. But, first take a look at what’s going on throughout Tempe this week. View a complete listing of Tempe events, or call 480-894-8158 for more information.
