"I'm really excited about the fact that we've been able to con- tinue it [the comedy club] for 10 years," said Royal. "I think one of the reasons why it's consistent is Coach Tom Whiteley will headline the 1997 debut of the Irish Eyes comedy club in Rehoboth Beach. Cost is $5 per person, and reservations are recommended. Call 227- 2888 for information. that it's in a small club setting."

He said Whiteley, who coaches football in New Jersey, is one of the establishment's most popular performers. "His antics are just hysterical," said Royal. "I've seen his act at least 10 times and I still laugh every time." Whiteley's high energy act will headline the Monday, June 9, comedy club at Irish Eyes.
