COMEDY KITCHEN ~ SERVING UP LAUGHS
Veteran Stand-Up Comic Craig Shoemaker and his Philly brother-from-another-mother, the legendary Restaurateur Tony Luke Jr...have a running argument...

Craig says he can make a Chef Funny and Tony says he can teach a comic to cook.

Well the oven-mitts come off when Celebrity Chefs take the stage, and Celebrity Comics sharpen the knives.

And at the end of this hilarious Dinner & Show... someone will win the night.
Featuring the Stunning Wines and Backdrop

Hilarious Chemistry​​​​​​​
All ya gotta do is get these two Philly guys in front of a camera - and let the show begin. 

Check out this screen test of Craig & Tony the COMEDY KITCHEN Hosts natural shenanigans.  This was the genesis for this series. 

Can Funny be taught?  Can anyone cook?

ELAYNE BOOSLER
Comedian, writer, and animal activist Elayne Boosler started doing comedy in New York City in 1973, and has been on everything you have ever seen. So if you say to her, “Didn’t I see you on..??” Yes. Yes, you did.

CHEFS BRAVING THE STAGE
CHEF GINA NEELY
Not only can she whip up incredible dishes, but Gina is known for her wicked sharp and funny improvisational commentary in the kitchen.  Moving this pistol to the stage is totally a no-brainer

CHEF JOEY CIOLLI
Grimaldi's Pizzeria defines NY Style pie and Joey grew up in the family business. "The Brooklyn pizzeria is the inspiration for all of our other locations," says Joey.  Let's just hope he doesn't react like Joe Pesci... "I amuse you?!"
