McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre has graced Sarasota for over 22 years and has entertained many of us during that time with well known comedians. There’s nothing better than having your own comedy central in your backyard to share laughter, celebrate birthdays and anniversaries or enjoy a lighthearted, fun and entertaining evening out with friends and family. The shows are Wednesday through Sunday.
Conveniently, they serve light meals, fresh popcorn and do require a 2 drink minimum. Most evenings there is usually an opening act or two of comedians to warm the crowd and then followed by the scheduled comedian. Most recently we celebrated a birthday milestone at McCurdy’s with a Comedian Hypnotist who left us totally mesmerized with his ability to hypnotize people including a family member who performed on stage funny skits, antics, sang, danced and so much more. Fun was had by all ironically including the willing participants.
McCurdy’s also has a “Humor Institute “ with training classes to learn how to entertain on stage or in a group but also to simply improve your social and communication skills in a job which I found interesting.
When visiting the Sarasota, Bradenton or Venice areas, an evening at McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre is a sure way to unwind after a long day of fun in the sun and sand. It’s conveniently located on N. Tamiami Trail not too far from the Sarasota Bradenton Airport in a large convenient showroom where no matter where you sit, you always have a good view of the stage. Advance reservations are always recommended as well as checking their website for all the upcoming shows in advance and signing up for their newsletter for future events.
