Wits & Giggles Stand-Up Comedy brought to you by Bud Light returns to the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena Saturday, November 14 at 7:30 p.m. The night features headliner, Lionel Hamilton; feature, JC Clarke; and host Robb Will.

JC Clarke

Feature act, JC Clarke is bringing his self-depreciating comedy style to Jamestown all the way from Kentucky. After 20 years in retail management, Clarke decided it was time to give it all up for a career in comedy. He has performed at Cozzy’s Comedy Club, Cleveland Improv, and was a finalist in the 2013 Pittsburgh Improv “Last Comic Standing Contest.” Clarke’s comedy is best described as stories and observations about life. He talks about growing up in the 70s, life after 40, recycling, and adventures with “the Cat.”

Lionel Hamilton

Akron, Ohio native Lionel Hamilton will headline the event. Hamilton made his debut at an Amateur Night local comedy show in 1985. Since then he has performed his hilarious routine at many notable venues, such as, Live at the Apollo, Improv Comedy Club, Funny Bone Comedy Club, Comedy Club (California), and on Black Entertainment Television (BET). He has opened for The Temptations, Ramsey Lewis, Kool and The Gang, and Whispers. Hamilton prides himself in doing “clean and tasteful” comedy and lives by the philosophy, “You don’t have to do vulgar comedy to be funny.”

Robb Will

Returning as the host of Wits ‘n Giggles is Robb Will, Jamestown, New York’s self-proclaimed 67th Funniest Comedian. Will has performed in Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and Southern Indiana where he draws from his life experiences and gives you reasons to laugh at them. Will has famously remarked, “I got into comedy because I needed to laugh, I am staying because you need to laugh.”

Opening for Wits ‘n Giggles is an NA3HL game between the Southern Tier Xpress and Pittsburgh Vengeance. The game begins at 5 p.m. on DFT Communications Rink. Tickets to the game are only $5.
