The once popular Comedy Warehouse at Pleasure island in Walt Disney World is making a comeback – but it’s moving to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and for one week only.
Comedy Warehouse was one of the many nightclubs inside Pleasure Island that closed a few years ago. It featured a handful of comedians performing improve skits based on audience suggestions. The Comedy Warehouse Holiday Special at Hollywood Studios will be run the same way but with shorter shows, a holiday theme, and of course, all family friendly.
All of the comedians in the revived show are former Comedy Warehouse actors and current cast members. The cast includes Mark Daniel (former Orlando Attractions Magazine – The Show host), Lisa Glaze, Joy Anderson Bowes, Krista Miller, Mary Thompson Hunt, Philip Nolen, Steve Purnick, Jake Lockwood and John Cameron Telfer. The musicians include John B. deHaas, Randy Morris, Jamal Gureay and Carol Stein.
The 22-minute shows will take place at 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 3:45 p.m., 4:45 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. from Dec. 25 to Dec. 31 at the ABC Sound Studio (formerly Sounds Dangerous Theater) at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The shows are included with admission to the theme park.
