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.
