COMEDY | John Henton 

John Henton was a computer science student by night, and spent his days working. He didn't entertain the idea of becoming a comedian until 1982, when his coworker suggested he try some of his jokes at a local comedy club in Ohio. He won the amateur night contest on his second night there, and within six years, became a full-time stand-up comedian in Los Angeles. Henton was also a long-time actor on "Living Single" and "The Hughleys." The comedian will be performing with Talent Harris as part of "Talent's Comedy Takeover." Harris, a Rochester native, is known for co-writing and starring in the video "Brotherly Love" and movies "Sunset Park" and "With or Without You." He also hosted Showtime's "White Boyz in the Hood."

Henton will perform five shows at The It's Just Comedy Club (2235 Empire Boulevard, Webster). Thursday, July 20, at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, July 21, and Saturday, July 22, at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Advance tickets are $20 to $30, depending on the seats and day. Tickets bought at the door cost an extra $5. For tickets or further information, call 671-9080 or visit theitsjustcomedyclub.com.
