Comedy Show at WYC on Friday

Steve Sweeney, “The King of Boston Comedy,” will be in Winthrop Friday night making an appearance at the Mike Eruzione Winthrop Charities’ comedy show.

Sweeney, who has a role in Denzel Washington’s movie, “The Equalizer,” as the owner of a Boston diner, will headline the show that begins at 8 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) at the Winthrop Yacht Club.

The 6-foot-4-inch Sweeney has been a force on the Boston comedy scene for years, entertaining audiences with his quick wit and in-depth knowledge of the Greater Boston area.

Los Angeles-based comedian Jackie Flynn and Graig Murphy, a rising star known for his precise imitation of former Red Sox manager Terry Francona, will also perform.

Tickets for the event are available for a $50 donation.

Proceeds from the event will go to Winthrop Charities.
