Always laugh when you can

Springfield's homegrown comedy club, Donnie B's Comedy, has hosted countless performers over the years. Recently the club has taken its show on the road as Donnie B's Traveling Comedy Show and is hitting local venues to present some great acts. This weekend it is celebrating its 22nd season with performances by The Ragin' Cajun, John Morgan. Morgan was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, a city that laid the groundwork for his development as a performer, by its cultural, political and economic diversity. His confident demeanor and honest approach to life are refreshing, and he dares to talk boldly about real issues. Morgan has worked steadily at comedy clubs, corporate events and musical arenas, has had some national television appearances on MTV and Showtime and has been the opening act for several national performers. Tickets for this weekend's shows are only available online at, but walk-ins are welcome if seats are available. Social distancing and masks are required until seated.
