The Plastic Cup Boyz
Sunday 10/2/2021 7:30 PM
The Plastic Cup Boys: Na'im Lynn and Will "Spank" Horton seems to be the surest thing to come out of Jersey and it happened way before MTV was even a reality. This weekend they will be at Houston's Impro.
But you can blame it on the moon men or some other inter-galactic event but there's no denying that the universe was blessed with the descent of Na'im Lynn landing in a small town named Hillside two miles east of Newark Liberty Airport (even then he was so fly he was two miles ahead of the plane!).
Nevertheless it was obvious a star was born. Growing up using Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphy for muses it wasn't long before Na'im developed a knack for out-of-this-world comedy that has him skyrocketing to the top as the next big thing.
Best known as the opening act for his friend famed comedian Kevin Hart Na'im travels the world over blazing the stage as part of Hart's continuous tour that has produced two genius comedic movies - "Seriously Funny" and "Laugh at my Pain", which Na'im also stared in.

It’s a typical day at New York’s only coffee shop, Central Perk, until an unexpected runaway bride enters the picture and kicks the whole gang out of second gear! FRIENDS!

Rob Landes - Comedy in Silent Films
The Grand Opera House in Galveston
Our friend Rob Landes returns to The Grand for a hilarious storytelling double-feature extravaganza! Seated at the organ, Rob will underscore two comedy short films from the 1920s as they are featured on the big screen. The first, Habeas Corpus is a kooky tale complete with a mad scientist, cemetery raid and classic chase sequence. The second, The Finishing Touch, involves building a house, a feisty nurse from the hospital next door and a whole lotta chaos! More info at www.thegrand.com
