“The Funky Biscuit has long been known as one of the premier entertainment venues in South Florida. We’re excited to be bringing some of the best regional and internationally recognized comedians as a new offering to the sensational lineup of musical talent already offered on a daily basis,” said Comic Cure Managing Director Benjamin Leis.
Florida’s Funniest Teachers with headliner John Wynn, will take place on Thursday, August 8th. Showtime is set for 7:00 PM.
College professor turned comedian, John Wynn asks audiences to look at life through his charmingly skewed perspective as his comedy has gotten him out of many awkward situations, specifically his job as a college professor. Named Miami New Times’ Best Comedian in 2014, John was also the Miami Dolphins’ Official Comedian, though he was not as funny as the offensive line. John recently took third place in the World Series of Comedy out of 101 comedians and was the Los Angeles KLIQ Comedy Contest winner in 2017.
John was a semi-finalist for NBC’s Stand-Up for Diversity and his comedy can be heard on SiriusXM satellite radio.
In line with Comic Cure’s mission to support local comedians and local non-profit organizations; the event will benefit local schools and teacher. Tickets can be purchased here for $20.
