Lamb’s Players Theatre Presents “Big Mike vs The Con”
NBC Co-Star of Chuck Hosts Comedy Extravaganzas
San Diego, CA - Lamb’s Players Theatre, in conjunction with Prayer Dudz, presents Mark Christopher Lawrence of NBC’s hit series Chuck in a two-night comedy extravaganza, “Big Mike vs The Con” at the Horton Grand Theater on July 21 and 22. Mark is joined on Thursday night for a family-oriented “clean comedy” show with comics Jimmy Burns, Lester Barrie, and Scott Wood and guest musician K.C. Murdock. Friday night’s show is an edgier, more adult-oriented evening with Chuck co-star Scott Krinsky and comics Chris Clobber and Vicki Barbolak and musical guest Josh Damigo. The two nights are a counterpoint to the wildly successful Comic-Con which runs Thursday through Sunday.
Mark Christopher Lawrence is joined onstage by Jimmy Burns, known as "The Teacher Comedian," “Mister Punchline” Scott Wood, and Gospel comedian Lester Barrie. Jimmy Burns has toured with George Lopez, Arsenio Hall, Brad Garrett, and the late Richard Jeni. Jimmy has also co-hosted "Live from Here with James P. Connolly" on the National Lampoon Comedy Radio Network. Scott Wood has performed at such venues as The Ice House, The Comedy Store, and The Laugh Factory, and was named Stand Up Comedy Champion at the Improv Comedy Club in 2010. Lester Barrie has been the opening act for Ray Charles and been a co-headliner with Mike Epps, Jonnie Witherspoon, and Bruce Bruce. Musical guest K.C. Murdock opens the night with his mix of classic and alternative rock and blues.

Mark and his co-star from Chuck, Scott Krinsky, are joined by talented comics Chris Clobber and Vicki Barbolack for a night of edgy and adult-oriented humor.

Chris Clobber is the co-producer of BrewHaHa comedy and has written for major Las Vegas and Hollywood performers.
