Landmark Resort in Egg Harbor will kick off its 2014-15 Comedy Club series on Thursday, Nov. 13 with North Carolina natives Clint Nohr and Tyrone Davis.

The Comedy Club starts with an optional buffet dinner at 6:30pm, with the show beginning at 8pm. This will be the first of seven Comedy Clubs the resort will host through May 2015.

Clint Nohr will be the opening act Nov. 13, bringing his unassuming manner and 11 years of stand-up experience to the stage. His young appearance mixed with sharp writing and a likeable approach help him build a rapport with the audience.

“I’m pretty unassuming so I can get away with a little bit more,” Nohr says. “Just not having a threatening look. Comedy is the only place where that actually works to my advantage … it seems to help me connect pretty easily.”

Nohr pulls his comedic material from life experiences and touches on taboo topics, or in his words, he “won’t talk about things that you would talk about at a normal dinner party.”

“I touch on some darker kind of things but I do it in a way that’s pretty likeable and accessible,” Nohr says. “At least to the point where [people] aren’t trying to kill me afterwards. It’s a little bit dark and a little bit edgy.”

He has a number of stand-up awards to his name, including a third place finish in the Carnival Cruise Comedy Challenge, a pass to the callback round of NBC’s Last Comic Standing 2 in Tampa, semi-finalist in the Funniest Person in Austin Contest, and a finalist in the Charleston Comedy Festival Stand Up Competition.

His high energy, self-deprecating act will pave the way for headliner Tyrone Davis, who will keep the energy high and mood light for his act.

Davis has been doing comedy since his first open mic in 2001. At the time, he worked in logistics at a warehouse, a “blue collar, working guy.” His first time making an audience of strangers laugh gave him the confidence to bring his act from the breakroom to comedy clubs across the nation.

“I’ve always been a fun-loving kind of person and always enjoyed seeing people laugh,” Davis says. “That was just a natural thing for me.”

He likens himself to a “Tasmanian devil” with a “take no prisoners” attitude who visits a wide range of topics, from family to politics and everything in between. The common denominator of his material? A working man’s perspective on the 9-to-5, and the realities of everyday life.

“I try to bring a perspective that resonates with people,” Davis says. “From the doctor and lawyer to the person who might be delivering the newspapers.”

Comedy Club will begin at 8pm on Thursday, Nov. 13 at Carrington Pub at the Landmark Resort, 7643 Hillside Road in Egg Harbor. Cost for the show is $15. For more information visit or call 920.868.3205.
