Comedy Night March 27-28

Headliner: Tobe Hixx

Born in Miami, Florida, Tobe Hixx was brought to Omaha, Nebraska at six months old to be raised by his grandparents. It was there that he was exposed to his first sampling of comedic genius, Richard Pryor. As a child he would sneak off with his friend to listen to the forbidden Pryor albums that he found absolutely hilarious.

As a skinny kid, Hixx was often teased and ridiculed by his peers. He would later turn to a life of crime that included gangs and selling crack. Says Hixx, “People don’t realize when you sell drugs, you’re just as addicted as the person using the drugs. [I was] addicted to the money and the lifestyle.” After stints in both state and federal prison, Hixx credits his first love, comedy, with saving his life. It was the hard times he overcame that helped him develop the thick skin he would need to survive as a comedian.
