The Yuks Continue As 50+ Comedy Tour Returns To The Gold Coast Arts Center
A comedy show featuring only performers over 50? It's no joke folks, and it's returning to the Gold Coast Arts Center on Thursday, July 25, 2019, at 8 p.m. in Great Neck.
This year's lineup for the 50+ Comedy Tour includes home-grown funnymen David Weiss, Scott Schendlinger, and Rob Falcone.
"The 50+ Comedy Tour has become a huge hit, leaving audiences wanting more," says Ronni Berger, Coordinator, Special Events, Gold Coast Arts Center. "One reason is that the over 50 market is sometimes passed over in the world of comedy, and another reason is that the show is a riot, so it's no surprise that it sells out every year."
David Weiss, a resident of Oakdale, is the winner of the 2017 Search for the Next 50+ Comedy Star competition. David is sharp, witty, and hilarious, and his unique brand of stand-up appeals to all audiences.
East Rockaway resident, Scott Schendlinger, a rising star in the world of comedy, comes to the 50+ Comedy Tour direct from the New York City comedy scene, where he's a regular at top clubs like Stand Up NY, Caroline's NYC, Gotham Comedy Club.
Rob Falcone, of Forest Hills, is a national headliner who has performed his schtick in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, the Catskills, and Foxwoods in Connecticut. HBO, Showtime. Rob also performed on HBO and Showtime and is one of the most requested comedians on the 50+ Comedy Tour. Last year he filmed his first live comedy special right here on Long Island.
