The411 with Sherlene Shanklin: Civil right activist and comedian Dick Gregory will be in Louisville Wednesday, June 18th for one show only at the Laughing Derby at Comedy Caravan. The 83year old has produced 15 comedy albums and written 14 books just to name a few of his accolades. His live performance is not for the shy. His "Tell it like it is" approach brings current events and humor to another level.
Gregory is no stranger to Louisville. He's been here several times in support of the late Rev. Louis Coleman and civil rights issues. In 2002, Gregory along with Martin Luther King III and other leaders walked the streets of Louisville in protest of the death of James Taylor who was killed by police.
It will be interesting to hear what Gregory will say tomorrow night at the Laughing Derby. Comedian Steve Hofstetter from the Late Late Show will open for Gregory.
The show starts at 7:45 p.m. and tickets are $20 per person. The Laughing Derby at Comedy Caravan is located at the Mid-City Mall, 1250 Bardstown Road.
