3 Nights Only!
Hold on to your seats and your funny bones...
It's almost impossible to categorize Carl Strong. He delivers a blend of satire, observational comedy, impressions and off the wall characterizations that set him apart from other comedians.
Carl Strong has shared the stage with such entertainment luminaries as Gladys Knight, Chaka Kahn, Dionne Warwick, Guess Who, and Smokey Robinson. His universal appeal is reflected by the varied venues in which he has performed. From "An Evening at the Improv," and the BET Network to "Politically Incorrect," "Comedy Central," "Full Frontal Comedy" and MTV's "Half Hour Comedy Hour," Carl Strong has the ability to entertain...anyone!
Carl has been away from the Funny Stop for a while.
Back in 2010, he was diagnosed with CHF (Congestive Heart Failure). Even with a pacemaker and internal defribrillator, his heart was only working at 15%.
After a very long wait on the surgical list, on May 8, 2013 Carl Strong underwent a second major operation, having his much-awaited heart transplant.
Now, two years after surgery, Carl feels he has been given the greatest blessing imaginable and is deeply motivated to be reconnected with the national stage and sharing his comedic message of hope and inspiration.

Three Nights Only!
Na'im ("The Star" in Arabic) Lynn grew up in Hillside, NJ, outside of Newark. He grew up using Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy for Muses. It wasn't long before Na'im developed a knack for out-of-this-world comedy that has him skyrocketing to the top as the next big thing.
Best known as the opening act for his friend, famed comedian Kevin Hart, Na'im travels the world over blazing the stage as part of Hart's continuous tour that has produced two genius comedy specials, "Seriously Funny" and "Laugh at my Pain." "He helped me early," Na'im said of Hart. He taught me how to be more personal with my jokes. He was like 'yeah, I don't care if you bomb, just go up there and try some new s#it!' Once he fed me that knowledge I took it and ran and I became really good. And from me becoming good, he's become great, because he has to get up there and follow me."
Speaking of followers... his thousands of devout users and followers on Facebook and Twitter are privy to his hilarious up-to-the-minute antics and serve as a testing ground for his ever evolving material - much like his fellow classmates at Temple University who gave him his first standing O as a novice comic on the school's stage.
After graduation the then aspiring physical therapist ditched that career and a job at US Airways to pursue his passion. A week after calling it quits with "the friendly skies," he won a showcase with NBC thus starting a ripple effect that has had him riding a wave of success ever since with spots on "BET's Comic View" and Jamie Foxx's "Foxxhole Comedy Series."
Inspired by comedic legends and presently working with some of comedy's greatests, Na'im has no choice but to take his position on the brink of major stardom to achieve his full potential as a comedic dynamo.
As Na'im puts it, "When you follow a lot of comedy you're gonna develop a sense of humor. You're gonna find yourself trying to be funny. And I'm intelligent too, so if you can put the two together you'll have a successful comedian and that's where I am today."
It's been nearly 3 years since Na'im made his last appearance at our club. Don't miss out on your chance to see Na'im Lynn during this "Three Night Only" appearance at the Funny Stop.
