LolliComedy presents High Class Poverty Comedy Tour with Steven Lolli.
2014 and 2015 will likely be breakout years for comedian Steven Lolli (NBC’s “Betty White Show”) who has been called by Creative Loafing “A not very nice Jewish boy.” He 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 this past year, Lolli was asked to headline an awards benefit honoring Lily Tomlin, Jane Lynch and the President of HBO. He roasted everything including 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…”
Lolli’s High Class Poverty Comedy Tour will appeal to fans of George Carlin. (Adult themes and language.)
