‘BLIND AMBITION TOUR’ AT VANCOUVER’S VOGUE THEATRE
8 p.m .on OCTOBER 2ND, 2010 Lenox to film comedy special in the city that inspired him and helped him see the way.
World class American stand-up comic Darryl Lenox is set to rock the house at Vancouver’s Vogue Theatre on Saturday October 2nd at 8 p.m. where six HD cameras will be on hand to film the entire show. Using his honest and real insights as well as his key sense of observation into how we live our lives; Darryl’s followers and newcomers to his show will leave feeling satiated and energized by his comic genius. Audiences will be brought to tears of joy and to their feet by the end of the show.
Blind ambition is a fitting title for Darryl’s show. His eyesight deteriorating since his youth to the point of legal blindness, rendering him legally blind, the well spoken, deep voiced comedian says he has grown since having an operation in Vancouver to restore some of his vision and further deepened his human insight. He can now see the audience instead of trying to sense the energy level in the room while not having to worry about stumbling off the stage. But with the loss of vision has come brilliantly funny insight.
Vancouver, the Vogue, and Canada all hold a special place in Darryl’s heart and performing this show at the Vogue is a dream come true for the funnyman. For more than half of his 20-plus years traveling the world with his stand-up act, he operated out of Vancouver. Whenever he would walk down Granville he would imagine seeing his name up in lights under the 62-foot marquee of the Vogue Theatre. He feels that he owes the city that has given him sight which is why Darryl has chosen this location and is eager to share his vision with his audience. Now with a new record deal and the entertainment world taking notice, the show will be recorded for Darryl’s debut comedy record on Stand Up! Records, the label-home to comics as Lewis Black, Doug Stanhope,and Marc Maron. Six HD cameras will be on-hand to record Darryl’s comedy special.
“I can’t see two feet in front of me,” Darryl is quick to quip, “but I can see tomorrow.” For this stand-up truth teller, tomorrow looks awfully bright, and audiences indeed are richer for it. No one knows that better than his sold-out audiences throughout the USA and Canada. Tickets on sale now www.voguetheatre.com Supported by TAN- The Afro News
