April Fool's Day is coming up soon, but this is no joke: one of our favorite comedians and sitcom stars is coming to Killeen, Texas and bringing big laughs with him.

John Henton (AKA Overton) Is Coming to Killeen

We know John Henton as the always lovable funny handyman Overton on the classic show Living Single. Like a lot of our favorite TV comedy stars, Henton is no stranger to standup comedy, and he's about to showcase that talent for the good people of Central Texas.

Ladies and Gentlemen, John Henton!

The Cleveland Ohio native has overcome so many obstacles and still continues to bring us nothing but joy and laughter. Back in September of 2000, he was involved in a serious and dangerous car accident that left his left eye socket destroyed, shattered both of his legs, injured his stomach, and broke nine of his teeth. You would think after a tragic event like that, most people might hang it up. Not John! He channeled that into his comedy and continues to bring joy and positivity to audiences around the world.



John Henton Is Ready to Bring the Real

Not only is he ready to perform for all the Central Texas, but he is also ready to bring the funny. When I spoke with John, he told me that Texas can expect him to bring the real into his comedy. He’s going to talk about his life and how excited he is to get back on the road after to the pandemic caused live entertainment to come to a halt.

Check out Stand Alone Comedy Lounge's website if you're looking to get your tickets early. This is going to be a legendary show!
