LURAY — Performing Arts of Luray is hosting its first in an upcoming series of Comedy Nights featuring stand-up acts and host Lucas Bohn, who is scheduled to open up shows in January and February. The laughs get kicked off with Bohn and Ace Award-winning writer, stand-up comedian Steve Shaffer at 7 p.m. this Friday, Jan. 21 at the Rebbeca J. Graves Regional Center for Performing Arts in Downtown Luray.
Shaffer has multiple national TV appearances, and an actor who has appeared in films, television series and commercials. Among his credits are The Tonight Show, CBS Morning Show, The Late Night Show on Fox, and Evening at the Improv.
This multi-faceted artist was born and raised in South Philadelphia and had a Catholic education. These two factors were predominant in Steve’s ultimate career decision to become a comedian. He has a degree in education from Penn State University and has taught stand-up comedy at The New School in New York City.
Steve Shaffer began his comedy career in New York City and almost immediately started performing on television. His earlier appearances, which can be seen on YouTube, include: The Tonight Show, The Merv Griffin Show, The CBS Morning Show, The Late Show On Fox, Friday Nite Videos, Evening At The Improv, VH-1’s Stand-Up Spot-Light, MTV’S New Year’s Eve Special, Short attention Span Theatre, The Half Hour Comedy Hour, George Schlatters Comedy Club, Carolines, The Montreal Comedy Festival, (Steve’s performance at the festival is still considered one of the very best.) Also, The “A” List On Comedy Central and Dick Clark’s American Bandstand. This was particularly poignant for Steve, since he grew up in Philadelphia and always considered Dick Clark’s American Bandstand iconic American television.
Bohn will open for this month’s night of laughs. Lucas has performed on NBC’s hit comedy Bring the Funny. He has also performed with comedy legends Dave Chappelle, Jimmy Fallon and Kevin Hart. His first comedy special 2 Kool 4 School went viral with more than 30 million views.
A southwest Virginia native, Bohn is described as “energetic with an edge. The perfect blend of schoolboy charm and bad-boy charisma, his comedy is both smart and audacious.”
PAL plans to host another Comedy Night on Friday, Feb. 18 in which Bohn will again serve as the evening’s host. Stay tuned for more details about the featured comedian.
Tickets are $20 for Friday night’s show.
