Make sure you get dinner tickets. With Dinner tickets you get to go 1.5 hours earlier and you get front row seats. If buying on Goldstar, you have to email Goldstar to have them make dinner reservations for you. It is free and worth it. The food is average priced, you get huge portions, and it tastes great.

Description

Arnez began his comedy career while working as a flight attendant. He realized he had the ability to keep the passenger and crew laughing and upon encouragement from friends, he made his first attempt at stand up comedy. After that first night on stage, he knew what he wanted to do. He left his job with the airlines and made the decision to devote all of his time to a career in comedy.

Arnez began working the comedy circuit in Georgia and quickly became one of “Hotlanta’s” funniest newcomers. A finalist in the 1992 “Bay Area Black Comedy Competition,” Arnez was immediately noticed by the entertainment industry and was asked to make his first television appearance on “Showtime’s Comedy Club Network”. Numerous television appearances were soon to follow including “An Evening at The Improv,” “It’s Showtime at The Apollo” and three memorable performances on “Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam.” With a little more than two years of comedy under his belt, Arnez J was chosen out of thousands of comics across the country to be one of the five comics in the 1992 “Showtime Comedy Club All Stars.” Most recently Arnez was chosen to star in his own half-hour special on Black Entertainment Television’s “The Comic View.”

In keeping with his plan, Arnez keeps up a dizzying pace performing for sold out crowds in clubs and in concert halls across the country. Arnez currently resides in Los Angeles.
