UPDATED: Cool things to do during hot August in Miami, Lauderdale, Boca and other SoFlo cities

Rickey Smiley, the comedian who has turned his stand-up into a cottage industry, will host a night of up-and-coming comics from South Florida with “Pompano Stand Up Live!” Smiley not only has his mega-popular syndicated morning radio show in more than 60 markets (locally on WEDR-FM/99 Jamz), but is also a regular on the syndicated TV show “Dish Nation” (locally on WBFS-TV/My33). He has released eight comedy albums and made star-making turns on television shows such as “Comic View,” “Showtime at the Apollo” and “Def Comedy Jam.” The bill will include local up-and-coming talent such as Chris Preister, Pam Bruno, Chea Butter and Komedian Kermit. The show starts at 8 p.m. at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center, 50 W. Atlantic Blvd., in Pompano Beach. Tickets are $30, $40, $60 and $100 (includes front-row seats, meet-and -greet, signed copy of Smiley’s new memoir and a VIP reception). To order, call 954-545-7800 or CCpompano.org.
