Tell us a little about Laugh Out Lepkas Comedy.
I started my company about 4 years ago. Starting off in comedy, it is really hard to get longer sets and stage time. I was performing stand up for about 4 years at the time and was starting to get better at my craft but still couldn’t get on stage as often as I would like. I started putting together my own shows to get more stage time locally and found it really challenging, but yet even more rewarding and fun! At the beginning of 2015, I decided it was time to take the business to the next level and make it truly legit. I applied for my LLC and the official name and brand Laugh Out Lepkas Comedy, LLC was born.
Laugh out Lepkas Comedy is always available any time to put together a comedy show for any event. I have experience producing shows for birthday parties of all ages, retirement parties, weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, and charity benefits. I have booked a variety of high profile acts including MTV personalities, WWE legend Hacksaw Jim Duggan, and some heavy hitters in comedy such as Rich Vos, Artie Lange, and Gilbert Gottfried! So if you have a need for providing entertainment please consider utilizing Laugh Out Lepkas Comedy, we are Northeast PA’s premier entertainment company.
Who do you have lined up?
I have Mike Stankiewicz, who is from Nanticoke doing a set. Mike has appeared on A&E and Comedy Central. He is a veteran road comic and performs all over the world including casinos, resorts, cruises and more!
I will also be performing a set. Not only am I a promoter and producer, I am also a performer! I have performed at NYC’s great comedy clubs such as Broadway Comedy Club, New york Comedy Club, and The Stand. I have performed at Casinos, resorts, backyards – yes I will be at a private party in Old Forge 4th of July weekend, hotels, comedy clubs, colleges, and more.
The one you are not going to want to miss is John Walton. John is hands down one of the funniest people in NEPA. He always dominates on the stage with his humor. John is often compared to Richard Pryor. He was at the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas. He was the winner of NEPA Scene’s Got Talent Contest beating out 11 of the area’s most talented musicians being the only comedian in the finals. He regularly performs at clubs, colleges, and corporate events across the country. I once did a birthday/retirement party with John as the headliner on a Native American reservation in upstate NY. John performed for over an hour and only did 3 of his normal jokes. the rest of his act was all improvised with jokes about the environment and people at the show. John had them laughing the whole time and disappointed when he had to end his set! He is a beast on stage and has a great talent especially when going off the top of his head. He will be performing twice at the festival. Be sure to catch one or both of his sets on July 30th.
We here there will also be a magician walking around. What can we expect there?
That’s right! Laugh Out Lepkas Comedy also brings you the exciting entertainment of magic! The funny man of magic himself, Tony Leoni, also known as Mr Magic Man. He will be walking around the festival amazing audiences with his performances. He will leave them wow-ed and laughing. Tony has been the highlight of many children’s parties and also provides more adult oriented humor and tricks for shows aimed at entertaining grown ups. He has also worked in many amusement parks, athletic stadiums, universities, comedy clubs, and tons of birthday parties. With over 30 years of experience, Mr Magic Man is guaranteed to be a hit at any event!
