Pass the Grits

Ever since Dave Chappelle abandoned the throne of funniest person alive, comedians from all over the nation have been vying for the crown. This Sunday at 8 p.m., catch some of the candidates when the Best of the South Comedy Tour lands at the James L. Knight Center. The show features staples of the Southern comedy community, including Tyler Craig, Larry Dogg, Rayzor, JJ, Malik, and Henry Welch. In addition, Jacksonville natives Lil Duval and Doo Doo Brown will be in the house, as well as The Rickey Smiley Morning Show’s Benji Brown. Rounding out the lineup is Miami’s own Marvin Dixon, who promises to give the audience “more funny for their money.” He adds, “We have an I-don’t-give-a-damn attitude. We go for what we know. We go for what we’ve been around and how we’ve been raised. Everybody in the country can relate to the South.”
Sun., Sept. 5, 8 p.m., 2010
