The Happiest Grouch on the Treasure Coast
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. "
E. E. Cummings (1894 - 1962)
Attention " Residents of the Treasure Coast, as a result of Groucho`s Comedy Club opening at its newest location at Club Med, Sandpiper, 4500 S.E. Pine Valley Street, Pt. St. Lucie the entire Treasure Coast is now under a laugh advisory. If you find yourself at Groucho`s Comedy Club without proper cover, hold onto your funny bone and hunker down, one of Groucho`s fabulously fun staff will be with you shortly.
Groucho`s Comedy Club has featured such guests as Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Linslow, and Carrot Top just to name a few. We always try to get top notch performers. I want to make sure that when you leave Groucho`s, you leave with a smile on your face, " said Larry Silver, owner.
Groucho`s offers a warm and friendly atmosphere that will leave you feeling like you`re a part of the golden age of comedy. The walls are covered with the Kings of classic comedy such as Groucho Marx, Abbott and Castillo, Laurel and Hardy, and little I love Lucy sprinkled in for good measure. Its candle lit atmosphere and quaint surroundings make it the perfect place for an evening filled with smiles.
Silver said he has lived in Stuart for the past 28 years. When I first came to the Treasure Coast I got my big brake in show business and landed a gig starting up a hotdog stand. You might ask yourself what a hotdog stand has to do with show business. What happened was that I overheard someone mention that the Barn Theatre in Stuart was holding auditions. So after trying out, it quickly became my newest hobby. I began doing professional theatre, commercials, open mic nights as well as numerous talent shows. "
After several shows, Silver began to gain his confidence and decided to try his hand at directing and producing his own show. That was the spark that led to Groucho`s Comedy Club becoming a reality.
Groucho`s Comedy Club is currently the longest run comedy showcase on the Treasure Coast. Groucho`s has featured comics such as Steven Juliano Moore, Nick Arandes, as well as Jim Wiggins from The Last Comic Standing.
Their up and coming lineup features Bobby Dean and Michael Mack. Dean is a cruise ship favorite offering a tasteful blend of humor and music. He will be appearing on December 2nd & 3rd. Mack will take the stage on December 9th & 10th. He is a favorite of America`s finest casinos and resorts. Best closing bit I`ve ever seen, " said Silver. And on December 30th, Groucho`s will be saying goodbye to 2005 with their comedy festival at Club Med. For more information, call 772-419-0302 or check them out on the web at www.grouchoscomedy.com.
