MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. - Cherry Point Marines and Sailors are invited to attend a free live comedy show at the air station theater Feb. 22.
The Leathernecks II comedy and entertainment show will showcase musical artist Queen Caveat and comedians Rudy Rush, Renee Gauthier and Geoff Keith at the air station theater at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.
“We love performing for the Marines,” said Lauren Little, lead singer of Queen Caveat. “We did a show for the Marines at (Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center) Twentynine Palms, and the reception we received and work ethic the Marines show is amazing and inspiring.”
Little and the other performers said they share a feeling of the honor when they perform in front of the military community because of the impact the armed forces have had on them.
“It is an honor to give back to the hard working men and women who fight every day for our freedoms so I can continue to do what I love,” said Keith, a native of El Toro, Calif. “I remember growing up wanting to be a Marine, sporting a high and tight haircut – even my best friend’s dad was a Marine. These men and women have been a huge influence on my life.”
Keith said growing up down the road from Marine Corps Air Station El Toro still helps him today.
“I see how my life is today and the true pride I take in my career, and it’s because of men and women in uniform I grew up around,” said Keith.
The entertainers are coming to give the Marines and Sailors a fun, relaxing time and have expressed how excited to perform they are, said Jen Krivohlavy, the SMP coordinator.
“It is so important to provide great entertainment for the Marines and Sailors,” said Krivohlavy. “Laughter is the best medicine for a bad day or a bad week. This is an awesome chance to see top-notch entertainers and start the weekend off with a rocking good time and a laugh.”
