Harris said that comedy shows are often billed as adult entertainment but ‘Laugh Out Loud’ will be family entertainment.

“It’s a comedy show but I’ve talked with all of the entertainers and they understand that this show is for all ages,” she said. “It will be funny and fun for the entire family.”

Each of the comedians will have their time in the spotlight.

“Between each of the comedian’s performances, we’ll have live band performances, so ‘Laugh Out Loud’ will be much like a variety show,” Harris said. “Trey Allen is an incredible singer and he will be one of the featured entertainers. Loreal Washington will perform a tribute to Whitney Houston and you’ll think it is Whitney Houston. ‘A Step Above’ will do a step show so there will be something for everyone.”

Harris said everyone who enjoys a good laugh, and a lot of them, is invited to the “Laugh Out Loud Comedy Show.”

The show is sponsored by the NAACP-Troy Chapter and is a TaLesa J. Harris production.
