RIVERVIEW — The Regent, 6437 Watson Road in Riverview, will host the fifth annual Clean Comedy Night from 6-9:30 p.m. on Friday (Sept. 29).
The show stars Kier, a comedic musical impressionist, who is known for his, "History of Rock Guitar Riffs."
Kier's musical impressions include Sting, U2, Dave Matthews, Springsteen, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Sinatra, Elvis, Wayton & Willie, Tom Petty, Prince, Barry White, Nirvana, Pearl Jam and more. He has also worked with others including Reba McEntire, Oprah Winfrey, Ronnie Milsap, Kevin Bacon and more and made multiple appearances on the Bob & Tom Show and John Boy and Billy.
Attendees will be offered an Italian dinner. The ever also will include a silent auction, raffle table and a 50/50. Proceeds from the event benefit Summerfield Crossing Golf Club to purchase a paragolfer that allows those paralyzed to have the ability to stand up and play golf again.
The event is hosted by Brian Kleinschmidt, a local business owner of Anytime Fitness, and the opening act is Luis Rivera, a comedian from Orlando. Kleinschmidt has hosted four of the shows in the past.
Mike Self, organizer for the event, was personally touched by helping paraplegics who wanted to get up and do something. The cause helped Self secure Rivera, who's sister is paralyzed, according to Self.
Self is hoping to see a spike in ticket sales before the show and continue to see the show get businesses to sponsor each year.
"This is not a normal fundraiser," Self said. "We're Christians and I wanted something I could bring my kids to and see others bring their families as well."
A single ticket is $35 and couple tickets are $55. For groups of eight to ensure they sit together admission is $275. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. Attendees can purchase their tickets now by visiting freshtix.com/events/comedynight.
