After more than 14 months, the popular comedy club West Nyack Levity Live will reopen May 21 at Palisades Center with a weekend of performances by Gary Owen.
“We’ve waited a long time for this, so it’s exciting to know that live comedy is returning to Levity Live in May,” said John Campbell, General Manager of West Nyack Levity Live. “Our comics are eager to get out and work again, so it’s going to be a great summer of shows. We’ve missed our hard-working staff and they’re eager to return and welcome our guests next weekend.”
“Levity Live always delivers something new and exciting for our guests and we’re thrilled to see them reopening,” said Darrin Houseman, General Manager at Palisades Center. “We’re looking forward to seeing the great lineup of comics and smiles on our guests faces!”
Levity Live will reopen with guest safety as the top priority. Tables will be socially-distanced according to current state guidelines. Excelsior Pass – to verify test or vaccine status – will be used at the door, along with temperature checks. Guests will be required to wear masks when not eating and drinking. Staff will wear masks throughout their shift, undergo daily screening, and carry out enhanced cleaning between performances.
Gary Owen will perform at Levity Live from May 21-23 for five shows. Tickets go on sale Monday, May 10 at 10 a.m. Owen’s big break came in 1997 on BET’s Comic View where he was voted “Funniest Serviceman in America.” He later starred in the BET reality show “The Gary Owen Show” and appeared in such films as “Rebound,” “Daddy Day Care” and “Meet the Blacks.” Owen last performed at Levity Live in March, 2018.
