Murphy and Pryor are ready to plant their own flag with the "Sons" brand, alongside several other performers with promises of a night full of big laughs.

The Sons of Comedy: Murphy and Pryor, will feature an evening show taking place at 10PM on Saturday September 29 at Rain Nightclub located at 12215 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, CA 91604. The red carpet will begin at 9PM.
