Danville: Comedy series returns to Village Theatre this week

Show to be headlined by 'Irish Dave' Nihill, feature Ian Williams

A night of fun and laughter is set to be held at the Village Theatre and Art Gallery in downtown Danville on Thursday, when comedy virtuoso Liz Grant takes the stage along with some of her funniest friends from across California.

As a part of the ongoing series “Comedy with Liz Grant and Friends,” once a month the titular comedian emcees an evening of standup comedy with one or more special guests. Local comedy fans this month will get to hear the musings of best-selling author Dave Nihill -- also known as “Irish Dave.”

Author of “Do You Talk Funny?,” Irish Dave is a producer, entrepreneur and acclaimed public speaker whom town officials said “uses humor to enrich the lives of his listeners.”

But the fun doesn’t stop there, as Bay Area favorite Ian Williams will also be taking the stage on Thursday, to demonstrate his “expert delivery and brilliant timing.” Residents may recognize Williams from previous appearances on MTV and Showtime, where he always brought the laughs.

Comedians may use mature themes and language in their material, so theater officials have set an age recommended of 16 years old and up -- but comedy fans under 16 can attend if accompanied by an adult.

The show is set to be held this Thursday (July 11), 7:30 p.m. at the Village Theatre, 233 Front St. in downtown Danville. Tickets are $20 if purchased online or $25 at the door.

The final scheduled show of the series is set to be held on Aug. 8.
