Kirk McHenry was born and raised in Oakland, CA and blends all of his experiences together into a story-telling brand of comedy that has been likened to Bill Cosby with a Richard Pryor twist.From entertaining troops overseas to being featured on BET’s ComicView, BET’s One Mic Stand, and Jamie Foxx Laffapalooza, Kirk is well on his way to becoming a household name. Kirk has opened for comedic stars such as Paul Mooney, Bobby Slayton, Gary Owen, Charlie Murphy, Tommy Davidson and Eddie Griffin. We’re thrilled to welcome Kirk back to the Throckmorton with more of his dynamic side-splitting comedy.
Sean McBride Born in the Mid West, but raised in Western New England, it’s no surprise that Sean McBride is now one of the fastest rising comics to come out of Southern California. A well traveled man indeed, but that’s part of what helps Sean relate to people no matter where he’s performing. After quitting what could have been a lucrative career working for the NFL Network, the Comedy Gods recognized Sean’s ultimate sacrifice, and graced him with a breakout performance in the film, National Lampoon’s “Dirty Jokes: The Movie”, starring “The Unknown Comic” Murray Langston, and currently airing on SHOWTIME. Sean then hit the road as the opening act for the writer and director of the now cult hit film, legendary headlining comedian Vic Dunlop (“The Richard Pryor Show”, “Make Me Laugh”), and has been climbing the stand up ranks ever since. Sean is quickly becoming a fan favorite all over the country. With hip, clever writing and a boyish charm, it’s no surprise that people leave Sean’s shows feeling like he’s been living next door to them their whole lives.
