We had an exciting new event at Granbury Live over the weekend. It was our very first Comedy night and I am here to tell you it was a smashing success! It was not a big sell out, but since this was our first attempt to present stand up comedians, I truly anticipated the crowd would be small and we will build an audience over time.
Tom Clark was the headliner for the evening and he has performed on the Conan Show, on the Late, Late Show and all over America in a variety of comedy clubs and showcases. Tom did a terrific job and really had the audience going. I know I was laughing so hard a time or two that my mind was made up we needed to continue to have standup comedy at Granbury Live! Steph Clark and Kip Hart rounded out the rest of the performance card with really solid performances.
I know not everyone is a fan of standup. Some folks are uncomfortable with some of the subject matters or with some of the language and implications. Just so everyone knows, Granbury Live will never have truly “raw” comedians or performers who are just downright vulgar. I would hope if you believe you might be offended by standup, you choose to attend one of our other shows. If, however, you like to have a good laugh and enjoy standup, we are going to have comedy shows in the future you will love. At Granbury Live we want to serve the entire entertainment consuming community and present shows which appeal to a variety of different interests and tastes.
We love our supporters and patrons and hope we continue in a tradition of presenting quality shows in a intimate and pleasant environment.
