‘Suits for Veterans Comedy Tour’: Enjoy a comedic battle of the sexes with Tom Briscoe and Kerri Louise
There will be a battle of the sexes when the “Suits for Veterans Comedy Tour” hits Danbury’s Palace Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 20. Audience members can expect a “he-said, she-said” showdown, featuring the talents of comedians Tom Briscoe and Kerri Louise.
Briscoe is a headliner at top comedy clubs and resorts around the country. He’s a regular at the Comic Strip Live and Dangerfield’s Comedy Club in Manhattan, as well as the Borgata Comedy Club in Atlantic City.
In addition, he has performed on cruise ships around the world, has been seen on The Comedy Channel, and tours with his critically acclaimed one-man show, “So… I Got Fired From THAT Job!”
Louise is a high-energy comedian who made it to the finals on “Last Comic Standing” and has appeared on NBC’s “Access Hollywood” and “The Apprentice,” along with ABC’s “The View,” as well as “20/20” and Comedy Central. She has also performed at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival and the Montreal Comedy Festival, among others.
Briscoe, who grew up in Brewster, N.Y., is the guy who originated the suits-for-veterans tour concept. The idea is for people to enjoy a night of laughter while supporting a great cause. In other words, please clean your closets and if you find professional clothes or a suit you can donate to aid a veteran, please bring those items. Representatives from the nonprofit, Save-A-Suit, will be on hand to collect the items and see that they go to military veterans in need. (saveasuit.org)
