PRINCETON — Chicago comedian Jordan Holmes will headline an evening of standup comedy at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 10, at the Grace Performing Arts Center in Princeton. Appearing with Holmes are Matt Drufke and Xavier Lamont. The show features adult themes.

A Princeton native, Holmes has been performing in the Chicago area for the past eight years and is a regular at Zanies and The Improv. Of himself, he says, “I tell jokes and yell. Usually both at the same time.”

Fellow comedian Drufke is known for his aggressive, interesting and always funny comedy act. His debut album, “This Is Supposed to Be Fun,” reached No. 2 on the comedy charts. Lamont, meanwhile, spent nearly 10 years in the corporate world before making the leap to the comedy scene. His edgy style of storytelling has made him a crowd favorite in clubs in Chicago and around the country. He has also appeared on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and in the film Killing Poe.

Festival 56’s Grace Performing Arts Center is located at 316 S. Main St. in Princeton and is completely accessible with ample parking nearby.
