Events

At the Carrollwood Cultural Center, magic is around every corner. Music fills the air, colors dress the walls, dancers float on stage and drama evokes emotion. The Center has been honored to host an array of local talents from visual artists, instrumentalists, singers, dancers and theatre groups. We look forward to introducing more area talent through future performances and concerts. Who knows? Perhaps our next headliner will be you!

In the next 90 days…

THE SHAUN HOPPER TRIO
Jan 14 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

2015ShaunHopper (2)Back by popular demand!

Acoustic “fingerstyle” guitarist Shaun Hopper is at first glance an unassuming presence, a true southern  gentleman whose humility stands in stark contrast to the prodigious talents he  unveils on stage. An unparalleled master of the fret-board, Shaun merges complex melodies, harmonies and bass lines along with a one-of-a-kind mix of percussive  elements, to captivate everyone within an earshot. Whether his listeners are  guitar enthusiasts or not matters little, within a few seconds they soon realize  that they are listening to a true virtuoso.

Shaun’s stagecraft is equally impressive and  engaging. Weaving in humorous tales from his small town Georgia roots and  sharing an occasional glimpse into his “backwoods” childhood, he  stirs his audience with both laughter and introspection. Shaun’s modest  upstarts bespeak his self-effacing nature, and yet it is years of cloistered  practice which cuts through on stage with searing confidence. A self-assurance  rarely found in performers twenty or thirty years his senior. What you hear in  his music is quite unexpected… even edgy. Coming from a succession of Georgia steel-workers, Adel native Hopper reveals an insatiable drive to engage a far  wider and more international audience.

Shaun will be joined by Chris Sgammato on saxophone and Paul Quin on percussion.

PARENTAL ADVISORY TOUR
Jan 21 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

A comedy show that might make some grown-ups blush. Enjoy and evening with a few comedians who prefer to burn the envelope rather than push it. Featuring Steven Lolli, Aniria and Michael Murillo.

federal2About Steven Lolli

Steven Lolli began earning his underground status as the only white, Jewish comedian in black comedy clubs in south LA in early 2002. Lolli, who found it impossible to tolerate Hollywood’s comedy clubs, ventured to a different side of town and became an irregular act in front of an unlikely audience gaining him cult status in LA when he was eventually chosen as a creative collaborator by Katt Williams (2007). The collaboration with Williams led Lolli to be featured as himself in” Katt Williams: 9 Lives” (2010) with Williams calling Lolli “Too funny for his own good”.

In May of 2013, Lolli was asked to headline an awards benefit honoring Lily Tomlin, Jane Lynch and the President of HBO. He roasted the comedy business saying “American comedy… it was over as soon as Eddie Murphy became the five farting fat people”. The performance garnered the attention of author Mark London Williams who described Lolli as “The keen eye of Lenny Bruce with Charles Bukowski’s raunchy appetite…” He has since been listed by Shareranks.com among the 50 greatest Stand-Up Comedians of all-time.

2014 saw him write and co-direct his first film “Yoga Ho” which he also appears in. When he is not writing and directing, Lolli is busy headlining the “High Class Poverty” comedy tour at Performing Arts Centers and Colleges nationwide last year and will return this year with a slew of the Bay’s best local comedians opening up for him.

In 2016, Lolli became a regular at the world famous Icehouse Comedy Club in Los Angeles.

Steven Lolli’s bold and unapologetic comedy will appeal to fans of Louis CK, George Carlin and Chris Rock. (Includes adult themes and language.)

AniriaAbout Aniria

As the daughter of a Salvadorian Dad and a Puerto Rican Mom pursuing PhD’s in Gainesville, Florida, Aniria learned culture shock at a very young age. The cultural differences between her own parents coupled with Southern Florida culture add to her witty observations. She knew at age 14 that she wanted to make people laugh when she took a drama class to break out of her shell.

Terrified daily of going to class, she eventually had to take the stage for an improvisation exercise. Having no idea what to do, all she could think of was talking like her Puerto Rican mom. After wiping tears of laughter, the class gave her a standing ovation and she knew that she wanted to make people laugh.

It wasn’t until later that she actually pursued her dream of doing stand-up. Now she is a divorced woman who juggles dating with raising kids. Aniria’s comedy expresses the “in your face” truths about cultural differences, the South, dating, kids, sex and how men and women relate.

She produces and tours with an all girl stand-up comedy troupe called The Funny Diva Show and she just won Best Screenplay at the St. Pete Comedy Film Festival for her short film 1-800-Call-A-Cougar.

Aniria encourages all women to express themselves freely. “I’m only talking about what most women think but are sometimes afraid to say.”

murilloAbout Michael Murillo

Opening the show is Michael Murillo, an award-winning journalist whose stand-up comedy has brought him to clubs, theaters and cultural centers, where he’s worked with comedians such as Jake Johanssen and Amy Schumer. Murillo’s sarcastic, self-deprecating style highlights his Jewish and Spanish backgrounds.
