This past weekend, Def Jam’s How to Be a Player star Bill Bellamy stopped at the Improv Comedy Club in Homestead for his Ladies Night Out Tour. With three decades under his belt, Bill Bellamy has recently emerged from his hibernation with a vengeance. The 49 year old actor, who doesn’t look a day over 32, tore the house down.
After more than a dozen field trips to this particular comedy club, I can confidently say that Sunday night was the best display of stand up comedy. Bill Bellamy’s jokes were clever and ranged from talking horses to unattractive celebrities. He went back to his Newark, NJ pastimes to create a fall-out-of-your-seat type of laughter.
The show was raunchy, relational and interactive.
Most industry people consider going back to stand up comedy a demotion, but that’s what Bill Bellamy needs– grass roots promotions and a comedy tour to re-familiarize the world of his lovely face.
Bellamy is also putting three young brothers on the map. His opening acts included D’Lai, Ali Siddiq, and Jay Reid. Each individual was just as comedically endowed as their headliner. Bill Bellamy, as he recalled, yanked them from the “car wash” and placed them alongside him on the main stage.
I almost went into straight groupie mode. The night consisted of four attractive men giving out roses, compliments and good, hearty laughs. For the sake of this story, I pulled myself together though.
Despite the treacherous weather conditions, Pittsburgh’s grown and sexy crowd sold out every single show without one incident. Pittsburgh consumers are desperately shopping around for a healthy nightlife, but as long as everyone continues to support artists and entertainers who dare to visit the Steel City, that scene will thrive once again.
Next up, you can catch Movie Scene Queen at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall for the Katt Williams “Born Again…Again” Tour live in Pittsburgh on March 12th. Tickets are available at kattwilliamspgh.com.
