Comedy Night at the Ritz: The Pink Collar Comedy Show

Sat, September 21, 2019, at 8:00 PM

Winter Haven Laugh's present The Pink Collar Comedy Tour. The worlds of stand-up comedy and drag will collide on Sept 21st at the Winter Haven Laughs!

Pink Collar Comedy show has delighted audiences all over the state of Florida. The brainchild of comedian and playwright Jeff Jones had its first performance at the Orlando Improv in 2013 to a sold-out audience.

The tour highlights the talents of four performers (three of which are drag queens). The cast consists of Jones, who is a nationally touring stand-up comedian, Addison Taylor, and Trixie Deluxxe, both former National Miss Comedy Queens; and Carol Lee, the co-host of the longest-running drag bingo in Orlando.

The show is 100% stand-up comedy and it not for the faint of heart.

In The Light of Led Zeppelin

Sat, October 19, 2019, at 8:00 PM

Inspired by the musical evolution of both Jimmy Page & Robert Plant, In The Light of Led Zeppelin is bringing audiences a new musical and visual interpretation of the Led Zeppelin Experience the same way Page and Plant presented it in 1994 through 1998. A genre-bending, chance-taking project, the music is performed with the same detail using the authentic instrumentation. This extraordinary, highly refined tribute ensemble digs deeper into the Middle Eastern and classical influences that permeated "Kashmir" — and then follows that intriguing thread into brand-new sounds when performing Led Zeppelin classics, providing a unique, not-to-be-missed musical experience, from the hard-rocking Zeppelin classics to the acoustic masterpieces.
