Comedian Marfori to perform Wednesday
Comedian Will Marfori will now perform at the Lewis-Clark State College Silverthorne Theatre on March 30, Wednesday, at 8 p.m. The announced date was originally March 22, but the date had to be changed to March 30.
Tickets are $2 for the public and free to LCSC faculty, staff, and students with valid ID cards. The event is sponsored by the Warrior Entertainment Board.
Marfori was born with cerebral palsy a disorder of movement, muscle tone or posture that is caused by injury or abnormal development in the immature brain, most often before birth. Mafori has been using his disorder as part of his performance since the late 1990s and discusses his life as a disabled person along with other disabled persons in a funny way without being directly offensive.
In 2003, Mafori earned second place in the World Series of Comedy and went on to win the 2004 Carnival Comedy Challenge. He then began performing on the college scene and has since performed at over 125 colleges. His rise to stardom continued in 2007 with his release of his first comedy CD "Are You One of Those Slow People" and has since produced a few extra audio clips posted on the web.
Since the Release of his CD Marfori's act has continued to grow in popularity. He has the ability to turn being disabled into a hilariously uplifting situation by reflecting on present and previous life experiences and he influences people into thinking how life might be different in his situation.
Will's rising popularity has led him to appear on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, the Stand-up Sit-Down Show with Sonny Fox, and he can be heard regularly on the XM Radio Comedy Channel performing bits off of his CD.
