FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Funny, Daddy - Sussex Comedian Lloyd Ravn’s First One-Person Show February 16 at Sussex Regional High School
December 14, 2012, Sussex – Parenting can be tough, and Sussex-based stand-up comedian Lloyd Ravn says the less frequently you laugh, the tougher it is. The importance of laughter, especially in the more difficult times of parenting, or life in general, is the theme of Ravn’s first one-person show, Funny, Daddy which is debuting on Saturday, February 16 at the Sussex Regional High School Theatre, presented by The Bay of Funny Comedy Circuit.
Lloyd is the father of three boys, who by show time will be 8, 5 and 2, and is fully aware of the ups and downs of parenting. From dealing with serious health issues to the usual stressors of raising kids, Lloyd relies on humour to get him through, and will talk during Funny, Daddy about how laughter during challenging times has helped him.
The adults-only show will run approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes and will include bits from Lloyd’s stand-up act as well as more serious stories, along with videos and photos. As ticket buyers are told on BayOfFunny.com, “you’ll (hopefully) laugh, you (might even) cry, you’ll (at the very least) have a night out without the kids.”
Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door, and are available at www.BayOfFunny.com, directly from Lloyd (who will deliver them around the Sussex area) at 434-3186 or from Oceans of Ink at 14 Church Ave, or Morris Music on Main Street.
