Get to know the other side of parenting when comedians Robert Kelly, Ron Bennington, Rich Vos and Jim Florentine hit the road. The veteran comics will discuss their parenting philosophies and share their craziest stories about raising their kids.
“Being a parent is easy, being a good parent is hard. Because we can’t hit them, anymore.” Robert Kelly said. “And that’s why we’re doing this tour.”
Last March, four of New York’s fastest and funniest comedians took the stage together in Glenside, PA for a killer night of comedy. The night was such a huge success that the four headliners agreed they had to take the show on the road.
Robert Kelly and Ron Bennington will preview the show at the Montreal’s famed Club Soda during the final week of the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival.
