The First Annual LOL Comedy Honors will be held in Brooklyn, New York on August 24, 2017 at the Grand Prospect Hall! Veteran comedians Bill Bellamy and Kim Coles are hosting this overdue and highly anticipated event. Red carpet coverage begins at 6 p.m. ET and doors open at 7 p.m. for general admission. The LOL Comedy Honors is a ceremony presented by Hidden Agenda to celebrate and honor past, present, and future comedians that have dedicated their lives to bringing joy and laughter to the masses.
Hidden Agenda is a New York based event production company founded by Marsha Taylor. Her goal was to create an exclusive experience to celebrate and reward the men and women of comedy. This auspicious occasion can be considered the Oscars/Grammys of comedic art and I am excited to see some of the comedians that I admire and have inspired me come together for a night to remember.
There will be musical performances, skits, and special tributes to the late Charlie Murphy and The Queens of Comedy (Mo’Nique, Adele Givens, Sommore, and Laura Hayes). Tickets are available to the general public and will sell out fast, so get your tickets asap!
