Get ready for an evening of pee your pants hilarity when Soul Joel Productions Kicks off their Southern States Tour Wednesday May 26th at New York Comedy Club in Boca Raton, Fl.  Located at  8221 Glades Road, the New York Comedy Club is one of South Florida’s premier hot-spots for great comedic entertainment.

Headlining the show will be Yannis Pappas.  Yannis’s stand up and writing have been featured on Comedy Central, and he has also made appearances on VH1’s Best Week Ever and BET’s 106th and Park.  He is the co-creator of Ditch Films,, and recently toured Europe in the Fall of 2009 where he played 30 shows in 4 countries.  He is planning another European tour in September of 2010.  Pappas’s original and side-splitting comedy can be viewed on Youtube and his Facebook page where he attracts audiences from all over country and around the globe.

Also appearing on this evening’s top notch bill will be Joel Richardson…Soul Joel himself.  Joel’s unique brand of self deprecating humor is riotous and topics range from his ever present struggle with his weight to his endearing and ridiculous stories about his grandmother.  Originally from the Dirty Jerz Richardson hosts his own radio show, The Comedy Point (on WIFI 1460 AM in NJ), and is a regular at bars and clubs in and around the NYC area.  He is an up and coming young comic who you just can’t miss and promises to have you rolling in the aisles.

MC-ing the evenings festivities will be consummate NYer Maddog Mattern, whose in your face style won him the award of Best Host of Comedy in NYC.  Mattern can be heard regularly on XM/Sirius Radio and just seeing what he’ll say next is reason enough to attend this uproarious comedic extravaganza.
