Watermelon Music Presents:


The Comedy Show with Paul

The Comedy Show with Paul fuses slapstick, dance, magic, popcorn and foolishness. Not just comedy that is genius in its simplicity, but comedy that will have you guffawing at his mental confusion and gasping, literally, at his physical comedy.

Bio:

Paul Del Bene ran away to the Circus at a relatively young age, and after clowning around in Japan for a while moved to Europe. He has studied in France, Czechoslovakia and completed Scuola Teatro Dimitri in Switzerland as well as a B.A. in Theater and Directing in the States.

During his over 30 years of professional performing he has been seen in solo and company theatre performances throughout Europe, as well as in Russia, Finland, and the Czech Republic. He has toured with Circus Monti in Switzerland, Compagnia Teatro Dimitri, Ringling Brothers Circus in Japan, has performed at the GOP Varieté theater in Germany as well as other vaudeville style venues in Europe and has performed for clients such as DHL Germany, Industrial Light & Magic, Warner Bros.

Watermelon Music Presents:


Don Alder – An Evening of Soulful Singing, Stories and Acoustic Guitar Fireworks

As winner of the 2015 Domenic Troiano Guitar Award (CDN), 2011 Worldwide Guitar Idol (held in London, UK), 2010 Guitar Superstar contest (LA, USA) and the 2007 International Finger style Championships, Don Alder from Vancouver, BC has earned his place as one of the top acoustic guitarists in the world and is the only guitarist to win all of the top prestigious guitar competitions armed with just an acoustic guitar. Alder plays with a passion that has quickly earned him a reputation as Vancouver’s “best kept little secret”.

His music is a unique combination of deeply textured melody and story. Lyrical and compelling, his original songs are notes of exploration – some passionate and haunting, some hard-driven, others light and teasing. In quiet pieces or pushing right to the edge, Don’s phenomenal finger style playing and rich voice captivate. Don is also recognized as one of the of the world’s top harp guitarists.


Tickets:

Available online, in-store, and at doors.

Comedy Night: Larry “Bubbles” Brown – Friday, November 1 @ 8pm
On April 12, 2019 By admin

Watermelon Music Presents:


Comedy Night

Headliner: Larry “Bubbles” Brown

Larry Bubbles Brown is a San Francisco based comedian. In the first grade he was watching clouds go by at recess and realized we were all going to die. This made him so depressed he just laid under the swings until the teachers came out and brought him back to class. He was sent home with a note.

Growing up in Ohio, he moved to California in his early 20’s, seeking high rents and traffic. After a series of Kafkaesque payroll jobs for the Federal government, he tried stand up at the Holy City Zoo in SF in l98l. In a few months he was making some money then rode the comedy boom of the 80’s. That crashed in the 90’s because as he points out – “Anything in life you like will be taken away from you.”

Though the boom popped, Brown stayed at it because you can’t beat working half an hour a night. He spent two years working as a traffic reporter on Live l05 morning show with Alex Bennett. Best job, worst hours. He has appeared on over 25 tv shows, including David Letterman and will be making another appearance this year. He was also in the movie “The Kiterunner.” He appears in clubs mainly in California and Las Vegas because flying terrifies him even though he was a certified glider pilot before stand up.

He has been a frequent opening act for Dana Carvey and Dave Attell.

Hoping to someday start a vegetarian minimalist pessimist movement, his philosophy of life is “Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed.”
