Sweet Baby J’ai presents A Night of Music & Comedy isn’t just a show; it’s a party where blues, soul, jazz, and comedy converge. Get ready for an unforgettable evening as the uproarious humor of Gina Yashere lights up the stage! Celebrated as one of the world’s funniest comedians, she’s a standout cast member and co-creator of the hit series “Bob Hearts Abishola.” With four Netflix stand-up specials and regular appearances on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, The Tonight Show, and the iconic Def Comedy Jam, Gina’s comedic brilliance is unmatched!
As a heartfelt part of our program, we’re set to pay tribute to the profound legacy of the remarkable Toshiko Akiyoshi. The transformative Akiyoshi, now 93 years old, has reshaped the jazz landscape over her six-decade journey. As a pianist, bandleader, and composer-arranger, she has solidified her position as a pivotal figure in twentieth-century jazz history. In addition to the fabulous saxophonist Tomoka Nomura, we are thrilled to announce a special guest who will be joining the homage to Akiyoshi. This show is full of surprises!
