Was invited out to enjoy a comedy show at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center ((New building)) 50 West Atlantic Blvd in Pompano Beach. The Auditorium was real nice. A lot of space but yet still intimate enough to where you felt comfortable yet cozy.
Coming out swinging the bat as the host was Rickey Smiley. He makes you laugh without saying much. He definitely filled the gaps in between acts. He brought out 4 great comedians, Chea Butter, Komedian Kermit, Pam Bruno @ Chris Priester The Teacher. I enjoyed every moment of this show and especially enjoyed not having to drive far to get home like you normally would coming from South Beach or Coconut Grove. Yes…right here in the heart of Pompano.
The heart of this event was put together by a good friend of mine ((and her team)) that hails from Pompano… Sharonda Eccentrich Richardson. She vowed to bring more shows like this close to home for us. Stayed tuned for more to come!!!

What is really going on with the Administration?? Pulling out of Syria, can’t get the wall built, Republicans pulling away from their fearless leader, Trump foundation closed, Russian ties are starting to come clearer, Mueller probe is flipping defendants against Trump……etc etc etc. The Etc’s are getting bigger and bigger. I really want this country to do well regardless to who’s in charge…..but this President has lost his mind and Party. I personally don’t think he’s a racist,….I think he’s something worst….and Opportunist!! He’s on who ever supports his agenda side…..like possibly the Russians. I am not sure whats’s going to happen…..but I do know that his kids will have to live with it. #FamilyName
