Somm Like It Hot

Somm Like It Hot

with Courtney Fearrington

Somm Like It Hot combines a wine tasting with live music and great comedy. Host Courtney Fearrington invites you to partake in a tasting led by a professional sommelier. The flavor profile of each of the three wines will be paired with a complementary style of comedy, from some of the country's hottest stand-ups. And the whole show is accompanied by Somm Like It Hot's live house band. Join us for a comedy and wine experience like no other!

About the host: Courtney Fearrington grew up in Washington, DC, to a military mom (Navy) and militant father. By the time he was able to walk and talk he was already performing for his parents' friends at every function possible. It was in the Marines that Courtney finally began to take his comedy from conversations and daily life to large groups of people. He has been featured at comedy clubs and festivals all over the country, including the Bentzen Ball festival. Along with touring clubs he has been heard on syndicated radio shows and has worked with comics from HBO, The Daily Show, Comedy Central, MTV, SNL, and many more.
