On Friday, June 2nd Kevin Nealon (Saturday Night Live and Weeds) will be performing his stand-up show. This show is a benefit for Michigan based and internationally known anti-bullying organization Defeat the Label. Trino will be opening the show with his unique blend of comedy and magic. The show will be at 8pm at the Flagstar Strand Theatre in Pontiac, Michigan. This is the 5th time Defeat The Label, in conjunction with the comedy video website Funny or Die is hosting their event, “Bullying Is No Joke”. In previous years the event has featured comedians including Frank Caliendo, JB Smoove and Sheryl Underwood.
This year’s special guest Kevin Nealon has been seen in dozens of movies but he is best known as a cast member on Saturday Night Live (1986-1999) and playing the character of Doug Wilson on the series Weeds. With his unique sense of humor, profound dry wit and likable demeanor, Kevin Nealon has established himself as one of the premier television, theatrical and stand-up comedians of his generation.
Trino’s award winning show features contemporary magic, hilarious comedy and lots of audience participation that is sure to have something for everyone. With a unique style, Trino has helped bring magic up to date by using a combination of popular music, comedy, and theatrics. See why Gene Simmons of KISS called him “Incredible”. He recently graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in Event Management and a double minor in Hospitality and Leadership.
