James Yon

James Yon is returning to Porky’s Comedy Club in St. Cloud this weekend.

Voted Favorite Comedian at Porky’s Comedy Club in 2018 after two sold-out shows, Yon is returning with a fresh performance.

“James is one of our favorite comedians. Every time he comes he works hard to make sure that every person who comes to the show leaves with their cheeks hurting,” said Porky’s Comedy Club Co-Owner Eric Godfrey. “One of the nicest guys in the business.”

A Florida native, Yon has become one of America’s hottest up and coming comedians. Not only was he voted Favorite Comedian at Porky’s but he was also named Real Radio 104.1 Monster’s Comedian of the Year in 2018.

Yon has taken the stage with some of America’s top talents, including Joe Torry, Jimmy J.J. Walker, Tom Rhodes and Michael Winslow. He was a finalist on NBC’s annual StandUp for Diversity — and appeared on the FOX Comedy Club.

In 2011 and 2012, Yon won the winning title at the local Orlando Improv’s Clash of the Comics.

In addition to performing live shows across the country today, Yon hosts his own show — “Viral Breakdown” — on Dish Network’s Afrotainment Channel every Sunday at 11 p.m.

Yon will take the stage at Porky’s Comedy Club Friday and Saturday (July 19-20). Both performances are at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15.
