Comedy show will go on

March 10, 2008

Albany -- Instead of cancelling due to poor ticket sales, promoters of a nationally known comedian are moving his Albany show to a smaller venue.   

'Earthquake' was scheduled to perform along with 'B-Phlat' and 'Dezz White' at the Albany Civic Center Thursday.  So far, only 300 tickets have been sold for the performance that could have seated 2,500. 

Civic Center managers suggested moving the show to the Municipal Auditorium, and promoters agreed.    

"Our community is a tertiary entertainment market," said Albany Civic Center Director John Mazzola. "We're two hours from Atlanta,  and an hour and a half from Tallahassee. People who want to see major headline acts have no problem being an agri-business micro-metropolitan  area in driving it, it's normal here."

Reserved tickets will be honored, but future tickets sold for the event will be general admission.  They've also added local comedian Chevy-P to the lineup. 

The show on Thursday starts at 8:00.
