The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present Stand-Up Comedy Night live onstage at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Sunday, May 26 at 7 p.m.

The show will feature headliner Mike James with Bob Howard opening the evening.

Mike James has built a reputation of giving his audiences an unforgettably funny show. His brand of humor fueled by his general confusion of being a husband, father, and just a human being, keeps his audiences laughing and himself in very high demand. From comedy clubs and casinos to cruise ships and fortune 500 corporate events, Mike James is able to deliver a fresh and hilarious perspective of life.

Mike has won numerous awards over the years and his background in improvisational performing ensures his audiences get a one of a kind, and very personal performance. In addition to his on-stage performances, Mike has written for Tosh. O, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Tonight Show and many others.

Bob Howard is an attorney who took a standup comedy class in 1993 at the tender age of 42.   The assignment was to write a five-minute comedy routine to perform at graduation.  He always finishes his assignments and that has led to him performing at venues big and small in the Southwest. He won the 2001 Funniest Person in the Valley contest in Phoenix in 2001 and the John O’Connor Humor award in 2013. 

Bob has shared the stage with Wanda Sykes, Nate Bargatze and numerous others. He focuses on the lighter side of being an attorney, growing old and the ups and downs of trying to be a stand-up comedian. He often incorporates his guitar into the act with observations about living in the Grand Canyon state. At age 71, he is just hitting his stride in a career that shows it’s never too late to be funny. 

Stand-Up Comedy Night at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre is made possible by our hospitality sponsor, The Wilde Resort & Spa.
