DeceptiComics Comedy Show premiers in New York City, NY on Thursday February 9th at the Parkside Lounge located at 317 East Houston Street, New York, NY 10002. Show starts at 7:30pm sharp and admission is $15 at the door, $10 in advance.
The DeceptiComics are four malevolent comedians, brutal, merciless, and hilarious. Their purpose, to conquer and destroy audiences with brutal wit and deadly punchlines. They are driven by a single undeviating goal: total domination of the entertainment universe. In the war that rages between staid, boring comedians of the past, and the newer, sleeker, more technologically advanced DeceptiComics the Earth city of New York will serve as the final battle ground.
Cerrome Russell, born and raised in Sumter County, GA, started his comedy career 10 years ago while serving in the United States Marine Corps. He was first exposed to a broader audience as a cast member on the 2nd Season of BET's popular prank show Hell Date. He has traveled extensively, performing at college campuses and military installations worldwide. Truthful, country and off-center Cerrome Russell's comedic style covers a wide range of
Dillon Stevenson is a comedian and writer based out of New York City. He’s performed stand-up at New York Comedy Club, Comix, Broadway Comedy Club and Gotham Comedy Club and other venues in NYC. As a co-founder of the comedy group G.R.I.T.S. he’s written, directed and performed in sketch shows off Broadway & at benefits and events throughout the city. As a lifelong performer in commercials, short films, television & stage shows, stand-up is where Dillon found his place after graduating from St. Johns University with a bachelor’s degree in communications. With microphone in hand (a light saber would have been preferred ) Dillon is taking the New York comedy scene by storm.
Mike Brown is a comedian and writer from Harlem, New York. He’s performed at Caroline’s Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, Laugh Lounge, EastVille Comedy Club, and other venues all over New York. He also hosts events, including one at SUNY where he did a pretty awesome job. Really! He knows that because 128 audience members became his Facebook friend afterward—and we all know how hard it is to get Facebook friends. Mike has a reputation for doing comedy absolutely anywhere; comedy clubs, cellars, bars, basements, gyms, laundromats, churches, colleges, condos, backyards, front-yards, attics, living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, Bed Bath and Beyond, funeral homes (to liven things up), mobile homes, retirement homes, wherever. And for the record, Mike Brown loves comedy much more than writing about himself in the third person.
John Minus is a comedian, writer, and all-around great guy who lives and breathes his home state of New Jersey. He has been described as having a sense of humor “darker than his skin” by racist comedy critics. He refers to his style as “Tragi-Comedy”. John opened for Robert Klein in October of 2011 in Cherry Hill, NJ. John spoke with Mr. Klein after the show, and was informed that he was not at all horrible. So, he continued his fledgling comedy career nonplussed, no pun intended. He is willing to do anything and everything to be entertaining, up to and including dropping his pants at a moment's notice. He doesn't need to do that, he just likes to. Eschewing traditional Black Comedian tropes, John has never dressed in drag. Well, rarely dresses in drag.
Tickets are $15 at the door, $10 when purchased in advance. Advance tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite.com.
