Join Marist High School in welcoming Dwayne Kennedy to the RedHawk Theater for Comedy Night on Friday, January 17 at 7 p.m. Kennedy is a stand-up comedian, actor and writer whose TV writing credits include The Arsenio Hall Show, The Orlando Jones Show, and the critically acclaimed FX/FXX original series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.
Kennedy got his start in comedy in his native Chicago at Zanies Comedy Club, and has since evolved into one of the funniest and most thought-provoking comedians of our time. His satirical diversions and piercing perspective on social and world issues showcase a comedic genius heralded by the likes of Chris Rock and Marc Maron.
