MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI --
Station residents found a distraction from everyday life as a duo of comedians performed at the Club Iwakuni Ballroom here April 18, 2012.
The Comics performing were actor/comedian Joe Torry and comedian K-Dubb. First on the stage was K-Dubb who grabbed the audience’s attention quickly and played off of the audience by asking where they were from back in the states.
“I have been to Japan two or three times in the past,” said K-Dubb. “Each time, I have really enjoyed myself performing for the troops. It feels really great to give something back to those who do so much for us.”
After starting the show, K-Dubb passed the spotlight to Torry.
Torry took to the stage with charisma that has allowed him to appear in television shows as well as big screen full length feature films such as Poetic Justice, Sprung, Tales from the Hood and others.
As Torry began, he informed the audience that he himself was from a military family. Then he held their attention with uproarious personal experiences.
This event was Torry’s first time to Japan.
“It’s a whole new world over here,” said Torry. “We like to bring a little bit of home to the troops in Japan. It has been really cool being out here and seeing the sites and what this country has to offer us.”
The night ended with the two comics mingling with the crowd.
“We like to come out and take pictures with everyone so they will have a little keepsake of the night,” said Torry.
Having been in Japan for just a few days, and performing in Sasebo the night before, the comic duo is returning to the states.
“Although we are leaving, we shall return,” said Torry. “We will be back May 2, coming to do another show for as many of the troops as we can.”
