Sunday's Shady Brunch Comedy Show will be the last time you get to see comic Larry Fulford for a while


In a year rife with loss, the Orlando comedy scene is about to experience another one. Larry Fulford, who has been practicing stand-up since before there was such a thing as an Orlando comedy scene, has been seduced by the warm, balmy weather of Chicago and is leaving for the tropical shores of Lake Michigan. Whether you know Fulford as a comic, the Will's Pub door guy or as the sometime drummer for acts like Matt Woods and Big Shoals, his departure leaves a pretty big hole on multiple fronts. So for his last show in town (until he gets sick of the Second City's famous piña coladas and sunshine and returns home for a visit), Shady Brunch is letting him close out with a farewell solo set followed by the hit Life's a Gift extravaganza with local comedy giant Alex Luchun. There will be laughs and there will be tears, but there will also be prizes – mostly because Fulford can't fit all of his stuff into a U-Haul. Good luck, Larry. Don't forget to take a jacket.

2 p.m. Sunday, June 26 | Will's Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | | $5
