Oh yes, it was ladies’ night, and the feeling was definitely right as Dolce Ultra Lounge and Bistro headlined some of the best female comics across the country for Laughter and Liberations. The midweek-show was yet another successful event filled with laughter, delicious dishes, hypnotizing drinks and beautiful, funny women! The Cypress area club, owned by Houston business mogul Al Rucker, hosted comics Cocoa Brown, Keisha Hunt, Melanie Comarcho, Crystal Powell and spoken word artist and poet Nikki Da Kid.
Everybody loves a little knee-slapping, tear-jerking, hearty laughter every now and then. Fortunately for us all, Dolce Ultra Lounge & Bistro gives all of that every Wednesday through their dope comedy stand-ups and performances. This Wednesday night’s experience was full of good food, great drinks and a laid-back ambiance, that is, until comic legend J. Anthony Brown took center stage. Let’s just say it was extremely…. raw and uncut!
We received a history lesson for the books as we were able to talk to the one and only Dick Gregory. The actor, comedian, activist (to name a few titles) gave us the real on his relationship with Martin Luther King, Jr., Medgar Evers, and what it meant to stand up in the face of adversity during the Civil Rights era. As Gregory poured into us, we identified with the amazing wisdom that was so rich, it oozed out of him.
