Make a resolution to laugh more in 2012 as Reverend Dr. Robert M. Waterman presents "Live and in Chocolate," a special performance by actress/comedienne/activist Phyllis Yvonne Stickney. The performance will take place Friday, January 6 at Canticles, located at 207 Lewis Avenue (at the corner of Lexington Avenue) in Brooklyn. Showtime is 9:30 p.m., with an open mic night from 8-9 p.m.
Ms. Stickney is best known in films such as "New Jack City," "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" and "What's Love Got To Do With It" and her TV performances on BET's "ComicView." Those in attendance will have the opportunity to experience Ms. Stickney's comedic talents and spoken word performance in the elegant comfort of Bedford-Stuyvesant's first-ever sober lounge.
"I am having too much fun," Ms. Stickney said. "Laughter without liquor means no alcohol-influenced behavior! Since laughter is the best medicine, 'Live and in Chocolate with Phyllis Yvonne Stickney' is just what the doctor ordered - and I'm serving it up, real and funny!"
The event is sponsored in part by Cocoa Girls Productions. Admission is $20 ($10 for Antioch Baptist Church members). For more information on the event or to order tickets, please call (212) 388-7086 or visit www.phyllis-yvonne-stickney.com.
