A-Train Live! The Experience continues to make history heading into its fifth year as Jacksonville, Florida's premier comedy series that's far more than a comedy show. Comedian A-Train offers a full night of entertainment and social activity all while he plays host to some of the funniest comedians from around the country. He also conducts a brief interview/Q&A session with the featured comic at the end of each show. These sessions allow audience members to gain a more intimate understanding of the men and women behind the jokes.
Comedian A-Train, host of the ultimate night of entertainment, A-Train Live! The Experience, most recently seen in Season 6 of Braxton Family Values, has traveled and opened for Original King of Comedy D. L. Hughley and has toured with Kountry Wayne. He has featured for the biggest names in clean comedy, Michael Jr., viral sensation KevOnStage, and AGT winner Preacher Lawson. He has hit the stage with Dave Coulier (Full House), Pete Lee (VH1’s Best Week Ever), Dave Landau, Keith Robinson, Orny Adams, Bill Bellamy, the legendary Elayne Booster Ali Siddiq, Zainab Johnson, and so many others. A-Train is a fan favorite at churches, comedy clubs, concerts, and festivals like the Zora Neal Hurston Festival, Orlando Jazz Festival, Steel City Jazz Festival—Birmingham, and Jacksonville
Jazz Festival—the second largest in the country where he’s the first and only comedian to host in the city’s 39-year history.

Little known history fact: Comedian A-Train is the first and only comedian to have a comedy series take residence in the Historic Ritz Theatre & Museum since its inception in 1929, partnering with the venue affectionately known as the Apollo of the South, to add to LaVilla’s (Harlem of the South) rich history of Black entertainment in the city of Jacksonville, FL.
A-Train Live! The Experience is the largest and longest running comedy series in the city and is indeed the hottest ticket in town. With sold-out show after sold-out show, it can currently be seen in residence at WJCT Channel 7 Studios Jacksonville.
