Steve Simeone developed his style of storytelling around his family’s dinner table in Philadelphia, where he competed for laughs as the middle of three brothers. He will be featured at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Carson Comedy inside the Carson Nugget, 507 N. Carson St.
Simeone’s performances, which focus on childhood memories, made the comedian a regular performer at comedy clubs in Hollywood. He also performs overseas for troops on “Comics on Duty,” an experience Simeone says makes him “the most proud.”
Simeone’s stories made him a feature for Honda’s recent Cheerence campaign, designed to spread unexpected cheer among national radio audiences. He has garnered a following through his podcasts “Good Times with Steve Simeone” and “Guilty Movie Pleasures.”
Last fall marked Simeone’s Comedy Central debut on Gabriel Iglesias’ “Stand Up Revolution” as well as the release of his compilation CD “Remember this for when you get Sad.”
Doors open at 6:45 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the show; online service fees apply.
The Carson Nugget’s new comedy club is also presenting Will C. He toured with The Monsters of Comedy and GIs of Comedy and featured in the film “Gone Girl,” at 7:30 p.m. April 10.
Will C, himself a veteran, founded the Veterans of Comedy, a group that performs and raises awareness for U.S. troops. He was featured in “Hello Ladies,” “Monk,” “Knight Rider,” MANswers,” “Yes Man,” and “Purge 2.” He just wrapped shooting “Hail Caesar” with the Coen brothers.
