The 12th Annual United Nations of Comedy Presents: “The Kings of Stand Up Comedy”

Live Events | 11/11/2023 | 8:00PM


The United Nations of Comedy Tour returns to The Paramount Theater with The Kings of Stand Up Comedy! This tour features national comedians as seen on HBO, Comedy Central, BET, Late Night with David Letterman, Netflix, HULU, FOX, and more. The United Nations of Comedy is one of the funniest national comedy tours to visit the area and has become a highly anticipated comedy event.

The tour was founded to promote diversity through laughter and focuses on choosing the perfect blend of national comics by selecting an eclectic mix of styles. This year’s lineup, The Kings of Stand Up Comedy, includes a hysterical array of national comedians: Antoine Scott, Sean Donnelly, Brendan Eyre, and Anthony DeVito.

The Paramount Theater was chosen as the host venue due to its historical significance, convenient location, and community-driven mission. The theater’s stage has been visited by some of the top comedians and performers in the nation, and the United Nations of Comedy continues its streak.
