Comedy blast opens at new Visalia First Assembly auditoriu

Hands in the Community announces their upcoming night of laughter — Comedy Blast — on January 25, 2019, 8:00pm, featuring the off-the wall duo of comedian Ken Davis and ventriloquist David Pendleton. This will be a night of side-splitting hilarity for the whole family presented at Visalia First Assembly’s newly opened, 2600-seat state-of-the art auditorium, located at Akers and Caldwell.

Named by The Dallas Morning News “One of the funniest comedians to come down the pike,” Ken Davis is also an award-winning author of 12 books, frequent radio and television guest and a very funny guy. Well-known in corporate and faith-based circles for his entertaining motivational presentations, Ken is a master story-teller who serves up life-changing truth on a platter of hearty laughter and poignant wisdom. New York Times best-selling author Lee Strobel says of him, “My friend Ken Davis is one of the most engaging, colorful, insightful and creative communicators you’ll ever hear. Get ready to laugh and learn at the same time!”

Part two of Comedy Blast headliners is David Pendleton, who will not only amaze you with his ability to make you believe that anything can talk, but his comedy act will also keep you laughing from start to finish. David’s flawless technique as a ventriloquist sets him apart from just about any other ventriloquist you have ever seen. Pendleton brings to his show a cast of comedic characters including lovable but blunt Aunt Tilly, a 94-year old spinster; the classic quick–witted trouble maker, Mack Elroy; the dopey yet adorable hound dog, Buford; and the slightly misguided albino vulture, Vern. A featured comedian on multiple faith-based conference cruises, Chuck Swindoll has said of him, “David Pendleton’s creativity, clever style and choice humor provide the ticket to an unforgettable evening!”

Event sponsor, Hands in the Community (HNC), is a community benefit organization established to provide volunteers and groups to assist with crisis and short term services for the underserved in Tulare and Kings County. The purpose of HNC is to provide an efficient network of volunteers/groups that responds to the hands-on needs of people in our community. By connecting those who require services and resources with those who can provide them, HNC joins the hand of the helper to the hand of the needy within the community.

Seats for this “wild and crazy” event are $30.00 for premium and $25.00 for general admission. Tickets go on sale October 1st and can be purchased online at

Pack up the whole family and come to this time of family friendly, gut-busting entertainment. As Ken says, “I love seeing auditoriums of people laugh until they require medical attention.”
