T.C. Cope is returning to Warren County this Friday, May 13, as he entertains at Park Theater with his unique brand of comedy.
Cope was born in New York City but was raised in Warren County.
“I’m coming back to where the roots started,” said Cope. “It feels good to be coming home. You never forget where you come from. That’s what this is all about. I was raised to never forget where I come from and how I was raised. A country town gave me exactly what I needed – some good discipline and some good rooting.”
Cope graduated from Warren County High School in 1980.
“I missed the last reunion,” he said. “This will give me a chance to see some people I haven’t seen in a while. Hopefully, they all come out. I’m going to stick around after the show and take some pictures with friends and classmates I haven’t seen in years."
Added Cope, "I’m in the process to hopefully bring some merchandise to leave with them so they can have a piece of T.C. to wear around.”
Since dedicating his heart to being a comedian, Cope has touched people everywhere with the mes-sage, “Laughing is Living” as a technique for survival.
As a child, when family gatherings became a time to act silly, Cope figured, “I can live with that.” When young and old friends came over to hear local imitations, he figured, “Laughing is living” and everybody can live with that.
Cope has left many audiences teary-eyed with his Southern punch, yet sharp city, humor. His slender body and laugh-line smile have given him a talent for making people laugh and leaving audiences beg-ging for more.
This small-town boy has made it big, working with comedians as Bernie Mac, Sheryl Underwood, D.L. Hughley, Bruce Bruce, Arnez J, Bill Bellamy, Tommy Chong, Damon Wayans, Charlie Murphy, Tony Rock, Paulie Shore, Mitch Hedberg, Don “D.C.” Curry, Robert Klein, Rodney Winfield, J.B. Smooth, Ste-ve Harvey, Cedric The Entertainer, Nick Lewis, EarthQuake, Killer Beaz, Whitney Cummings, and John Witherspoon, just to name a few.
Tickets are available. Seating is $15 per person. The box office will open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Group rates are available. Groups of 10 or more is $13 each.
