When: Wed., Sept. 28 2011
When Maronzio Vance launched his standup career at age 15, he encountered just a smidge of resistance. "They booed me so bad, I said, 'You know what? I'm just going to college,'" he remembers today. Older and wittier these days, Vance has racked up a ton of funny-boy experience, from a stint on Last Comic Standing to a visit with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. He's also enjoyed dalliances with The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, Wanda Sykes: Wanda Does It, and Showtime at the Apollo, among other stops. Now it's your turn: Vance drops in tonight for a show at Reddstone in the once-dilapidated, now über-hip Detroit Shoreway neighborhood. Tim Cornett will join Vance on the bill. Tickets are $15 at the door — and yes, kids over 16 ... and dogs of all ages ... are welcome. — Boggs 1261 West 76 St., 440-522-7035, reddstonecleveland.com.
