The Comedy Zone returns to Lynchburg, Va – Monte Allen & Christian Johnson
About this event
Headliner: Monte Allen
Monte’s rapid-fire comedy is based on an outstanding ability to take everyday dull life and turn it into gut busting laughter. But hold on tight to this ride because his southern point of view and creative imagination will allow you to see life in a skewed and twisted perspective. You can also catch Monte’s new hit song “Better Places” all over the radio from coast to coast. “Better Places,” or should I say “I’ve Been Kicked Out of Better Places,” is a laugh out loud original comedy song that combines true mishaps in this crazy comedians life with a southern twang. This wild man’s show is just good original comedy that will leave you wondering if he is really that screwed up.
