American Legion to host Comedy Nights, searching for local talent

Post 184 will feature comedy on four dates this summer and is now accepting talent applications...


- Lots of laughs are coming to American Legion Post 184 in Wildwood this summer with the new addition of Comedy Nights. Comedy Nights will start on June 27th and will continue on July 11th and 25th, and August 8th.

After the four week run, the event will be followed by the already announced tour stop of international Scottish comedian, Gary Meikle, on August 31st. The comedy events are just the start to new experiences at Post 184, and are the first to become announced for the summer season.

Post Commander Harry Weimar would like to invite local comics to apply to perform, and hopes the opportunity will be great exposure for Wildwood’s talented residents and visitors. The gig is a paid performance based on ticket sales, includes all marketing, advertising, and sales support by the Post and it’s members.

“This is a great opportunity for comics to get out there,” said Weimar. “We all think we are comedians at the Post so it will be good to bring in some actual talent. Our Post likes to laugh and I think this will be a success.”

Comedy Nights will feature 90 minutes of performances starting at 8 PM for just $15. Doors open one hour early and throughout the evening the Canteen will feature drink specials. The event is open to all and will be discounted for Legion members at $12 per ticket.

Interested talent should email talent@legion184.org for more information, and send a bio, work history, and samples.

More event details and ticket sales will be available through legion184.org and through events on the Legion Facebook page under facebook.com/legion184.
