I recently had the pleasure of attending the Adam Ferrara comedy show at Off the Hook Comedy Club at Captain Brien’s Seafood & Rawbar in the Marco Walk Plaza. I have enjoyed many of the comedy acts there over the past few years, however, this recent show was a standout.

Adam Ferrerawas voted class clown in high school and has grown to be a nationally touring comedian who is currently starring as Chief ‘Needles’ Nelson in the Emmy nominated FX show “Rescue Me”. He also has a recurring role as host of The History Channel’s BBC produced show,”Top Gear”. Through the years Ferrera has appeared on NBC’s hit comedy “Caroline In The City”, “Law and Order”, CBS’s “King of Queens” and the hit comedy movie “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”. He was nominated as the “Best Stand-Up Comedian of the Year” at multiple American Comedy Awards.  All this fame and he still took time to pose with his fans. He is truly a funny man and one of the continuing series of popular comics at Off the Hook Comedy Club.

We are fortunate to have southwest Florida’s premier comedy hot spot Off the Hook Comedy Club bringing top notch entertainment such as this to our Paradise Island. Nationally known acts such as Gallagher, Jackie Mason, Tom Green, Raphie May and more have hit the stage. Owned and operated by Brien Spina and his father Santo Spina, Off The Hook is the offspring of Captain Brien’s Seafood Restaurant at Marco Walk Shopping Plaza.
