July 8th 2023 | Guy Torry at the Dayton Funny Bone
Covering Guy Torry's stand-up comedy shows at the Dayton Funny Bone was an absolutely fantastic experience.
Torry's talent, charisma, and dedication to promoting and supporting up and coming comedians were evident throughout the evening. Torry's performances were nothing short of stellar. His delivery was flawless, and his ability to connect with the audience was remarkable. He effortlessly commanded the stage, captivating everyone with his infectious energy and hilarious anecdotes. Torry's wit and timing were impeccable, ensuring that laughter filled the room from start to finish. With two sold-out performances on both Friday and Saturday, it's clear that his reputation preceded him and drew a diverse crowd eager for an evening of laughter. The sheer enthusiasm and energy in the room were electric, creating an atmosphere that amplified the comedic experience. Torry's selection of local comedians to accompany him on stage was a brilliant move. Damon Darling, the host, set the tone for the evening with his witty banter and engaging presence. Derrick Keener and Dawn Alexander, both featured comedians, delivered performances that were equally entertaining and showcased their unique comedic styles.
If you have the chance to catch him live or watch his docuseries Phat Tuesdays: The Era of Hip Hop Comedy, I highly recommend it. Guy Torry is undoubtedly a comedy powerhouse who will leave you rolling in the aisles with laughter and appreciation for the art of stand-up comedy.
He will be back in Ohio July 28th and 29th at the Liberty Funny Bone.
