by BWW News Desk on July 25, 2016 in Tampa

Appearing THIS weekend: CARL RIMI July 28 - 31 Since he could remember, Carl Rimi has been entertaining and controlling an audience; whether it be just in front of a group of women, on stage, on the big screen, behind the scenes or even when he was growing up, as long as there is a crowd, Carl will be the center of it.  Since the age of twenty four, he has taken his gift of improvisation and humor to a higher level, performing at clubs and venues all over the U.S. and on several major cruise lines for over 19 years.  Carl has entertained in many major clubs and colleges across the country and is a regular at all three world famous Improv comedy clubs in South Florida.  He has also appeared live at the 2011 Las Vegas comedy festival and the 2013 South Beach Comedy festival.  Carl's ability to deliver intellectual humor and physical comedy in a fast-paced "wham, bam thank you ma'am" style helps turn the mundane into the insane. Carl's amazing energy and his ability to read an audience are his greatest strengths and have made him one of the most sought after comics on the circuit today.   (more...)
