The Colonial Theatre Last Stop for Comedy Festival

On May 17th at The Colonial Theatre the One Night Only Comedy & Variety Festival visits Phoenixville for ONE NIGHT ONLY! Pennsylvanian, Jonathan Burns, is a comedian and co-producer of this one of a kind festival. “I spend about 150 days performing on the road each year, and I wanted to create an event near home to showoff what I’ve been doing around the globe, and bring my funniest friends along. It is sure to be a night of big laughs and unusual talent.”

Each show will feature a mixture of unique and world-class talent that has been seen on America’s Got Talent, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, as well as on thousands of stages around the globe.

“The Colonial Theatre performance is only 1 stop of this comedy road show. The 6 day Pennsylvania tour will feature 12 comedic performers in 9 different shows in a variety of venues including theaters, arts centers, bars, and even a Mausoleum,” Burns quipped.

These performances will feature Stand-up Comedian, Doogie Horner (America’s Got Talent Finalist), World Yo-yo Champ, Mark Hayward (Late Show with David Letterman, TWICE), Magician, Michael Kent (Magician of the Year), and Local Favorites Hula Hooper, Jenny Hill, Comedy Juggler, Evan Young, and Comedic Contortionist, Jonathan Burns (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno).
