October 2014 is going to be very memorable for comedian Keith Lyle. It starts with a performance in the Laughlin Laugh Fest and ends with a nearly 3 week tour of Africa and The Middle East for Armed Forces Entertainment.
“I am honored to be selected to perform in the 'Fresh Faces' show in Laughlin,” Lyle said of the comedy festival. “And I can't put in to words my feelings about going overseas again to entertain the troops,” he said about being in the “Band Of Brothers” tour for AFE.
The inaugural Laughlin Laugh Fest is from October 3 through 5th and will encompass the entire town. Other performers at the festival include Larry the Cable Guy, Dana Carvey, Tim Meadows and Don Barnhart. Located on the border of Nevada and Arizona, the event is sure to be a big success. “It's my first comedy festival and the show I'm in is the first of the entire event,” said Lyle. The Laughlin Laugh Fest “Fresh Faces” show is Friday October 3rd at 3pm.
Lyle may be best known as the snarky 21 dealer in the first “Hangover” movie. Over the last several years, he has focused on stand up comedy. Having toured from coast to coast already this year, this trip to Africa and the Middle East is the fourth for Armed Forces Entertainment of his career. “The most rewarding shows I've ever done, have been for the hard working heroes that keep us safe. I'm really looking forward to these,” commented Lyle.
Along with Lyle on the Band of Brothers Tour is Brett Walkow, Jonny Loquasto, and Steven Briggs.
“These are some super funny dudes,” Lyle said about tour mates. “They are also great guys. As rewarding as these tours are, there's lots of travel, which is exhausting. So the people touring have to really get along well with each other. That's where Brett came up with the name of this tour. The four of us are like a band of brothers.”
Lyle and his brethren start their journey the second week of October. For security reasons, they can't say exactly when and where they specifically will be. But they return to the Untied States on October 27th.
2015 is already looking bright for Lyle. Along with many stand up dates, he has roles in 2 films being released. In the futuristic end of the world film “Holding Lucid” directed by John Bizarre, Lyle plays the comic relief. In “A Tribute to Fluffy” directed by Micah Cyrus, he plays an up and coming comic that recently moved to Los Angeles. Lyle has been tabbed to play the main character in “On the Road” directed by Chris DeFranco, which is currently in pre-production.
