Who doesn’t like the funny? That’s almost like asking who doesn’t like money, right! Well Kandy B and I love the funny and had to catch the Comedy show/ Birthday Bash for the Virgos in Wichita hosted by none other than Mr. Brandon Winn himself. Winn is probably one of the most well-known comedians in Wichita! Automatically, we knew that we were in it for a great show!
The show was hosted by Uncle Bam who doesn’t look old enough to be anybody’s uncle. He held the stage like he’d whoop your behind if you didn’t pay attention to his set, but why wouldn’t you? He commanded the stage and even roasted people in the crowd who tried to catch feelings… Like dude it’s a show; you are bound to be called out. Heck the birthday boy Brandon Winn didn’t even catch a pass; he also was roasted during Uncle Bam’s kick off.
First up was James from Manhattan. This fiery character didn’t have a set prepared, but his stories and punch lines brought tears to our very own eyes, especially with series of jokes about hood ghost. Then there was the comedian David; who is also an excellent DJ at KSUN 95.9 FM. Who’d think this kid could be a double agent holding down the spins and the laughs at the same time! You can tell he has had many a go at the rodeo and kept the crowd in stitches.
The ladies also represented. Ms. Erica Profit seems so sweet to be a comic, but her delivery commands applause! She delivered a round of laughs that you couldn’t help but to give her props. Seasoned comedian Keyvaun, who also didn’t come to play, hit the stage and his jokes were so funny and you fell in love with everything he said. However, when the birthday boy and honoree comedian Brandon Winn hit the stage his effortless delivery made each joke land even harder.
He even called me, Shy out and made sure everyone knew I have dance fever at any given moment and, challenged me to take the stage. Really, laughing out loud, Kandy B and I both weren’t trying to be a part of the show, but report it.
Over all it was a great selection of comedians that left our guts busted from too many laughs, but could you possibly have too many laughs? Laughter is the way to happiness. So laugh on and catch all these phenomenal comedians where ever they land. We know we will be looking out for their next sets!!
We didn’t make this show, but Community Voice photographer Gary Kinnard showed up for the crew. Gary, who insist he’s still in his prime, was really in the mix when these groups were hot. We know Gary was all up in the place having a good time at the I Love The ’90s Tour that made its way to Wichita’s Intrust Arena on Sept 9. The tour invites attendees to reminisce about the trend-setting decade with some of the most iconic, indelible names in rap and hip hop. The Wichita stop featured Vanilla Ice, Salt N Pepa with Spinderella, Color Me Badd, Kid N Play, Coolio, All 4 One and Tone Loc. According to Gary, it was a great night out that doubled as an arena-sized dance party.
