CoastLine: Comedians Clifton Cash and John Felts on Politics

Left: Clifton Cash; Right: John Felts

We’ve spent week after head-scratching week following outrageous developments – often in the form of Tweets -- from Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump.  We’ve witnessed the convention-shattering roller coaster of the Hillary Clinton / Bernie Sanders contest.  And, as North Carolinians, we’ve enjoyed the national spotlight for several months thanks to the recent passage of HB2…

Today, we’re getting professional help.  In the form of laughter. 


Clifton Cash is a native North Carolinian…  He’s appeared on Laughs on FOX in 2014 and 2015 and was a Martin Grant finalist last year.  He’s opened for comedians Michael Ian Black, Rory Scovel, Kyle Grooms, Todd Glass, Michael Che, Judah Freidlander, and Lachlan Patterson. He’s also performed on Comedy Central’s XM radio. 

His Sick of Stupid Tour stops in Wilmington, North Carolina on June 17 & 18.  For more information, follow this link:  http://sickofstupidtour.com/

John Felts is a professional touring comedian who has performed at comedy clubs, colleges, and company events in 25 states.  He is also a professional magician.  A self-described Conservative Libertarian, his dream is to one day impress his in-laws.
