About our event

Chocolate Sundaes Comedy Show is Hollywood’s hottest comedy show, held every Sunday at the Laugh Factory on the famous Sunset strip! First started in 1999 by Leland "Pookey" Wigington, Chocolate Sundaes has now become a fixture in the comedy world, helping to launch the careers of some of your favorite comedians.

With two deaf comedy shows, attracting over 200 deaf and hearing comedy enthusiasts from all over, the show has been a huge success. Sign language interpreters join hearing comedians on stage to interpret in sign language, while deaf comedians perform sets in sign language with a voice interpreter to make it accessible for the hearing people to enjoy. Many deaf and hard of hearing fans are thrilled to get the opportunity to see a comedy show live. Typically, they enjoy stand-up comedy at home with closed captions. Venues are becoming more aware of the need to make live entertainment accessible to their audience. Chocolate Sundaes is leading the way to make accessible shows and helping bridge the gap between hearing and Deaf communities. The show helped spread Deaf awareness. Some fans have never even seen sign language and are equally impressed with the emphasis the visual language provided to the comedy material.

In September of 1999, Pookey began his stake in the world of comedy by launching Chocolate Sundaes Comedy Show at Laugh Factory in Hollywood, California.

Don’t let his size fool you. Throughout his life, Pookey has been underestimated and has done what many said he couldn’t at 5’3”. Pookey is a legendary college basketball star known for playing in the 1989 NCAA Final Four Championship game while playing for Seton Hall where Seton Hall lost to Michigan State in overtime.

A knee injury prevented Pookey from being able to play in the NBA, but did not stop his

drive to entertain.

For almost two decades, Pookey has combined his love for comedy with his event production skills to produce multi-dimensional comedy shows. He is the Executive Producer for Kevin Hart’s comedy specials Laugh at my Pain, Let MeExplain,What Now?&Comedy Central's The Next Level.

Pookey grew up in Inglewood, California. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his four young sons.
