Laughs Keep Rolling Into March, Up North

Share an evening with some the best Saturday Night Live characters around.  Rob Scheinder (aka Duece Bigalow) was a cast member on SNL from 1990-1994. After four short years he quickly became a house hold name and making several appearances on the big screen.  Chris Kattan (aka Corky Ramano) maybe best known for his crazy antics on SNL from 1996-2006, a 10 year run with a big success on the big screen as well.  Perhaps his most famous movie was "A Night At The Roxbury" when he teamed up with Will Ferrell.  Tim Meadows (aka The Ladies Man), spent nine years with SNL, 1991-2000.  Just like Rob & Chris, Tim has done many movies and TV appearances.  Each one of these cats will bring and evening of laughs and utter excitement to the Leelanau Sands Casino, near Traverse City.  Be sure to get your tickets now.  Seating is limited and this will be a Full House...get it?  Full House?  Because it's a casino? Ok whatever.

What's So Funny About This Winter Anyway?

Nice segway from one festival to another. Music and BEer to Comedy.  How can anyone be upset with this time of year.  Traverse City does everything they can to help you escape the Winter blues.  
This Weekend will kick off the the annual Winter Comedy Arts Festival. Fred Willard, Rosie O'Donnell and Michael Ian Black will be here to help us cope with the cold.  

Here's a couple shows you also don't want to miss:
*TJ and Dave - Straight from their sold-out shows at the Barrow Theatre in New York's Greenwich Village, this comedy duo has been anointed as the best in the U.S. by the New York Times (read this extraordinary article from last week). I promise you, you'll never see improv this smart and this amazing - don't miss it!!
*Michael Ian Black - What more needs to be said about this comic genius? I've seen his show and I've seen his films and I'm encouraging you to come see him here in Traverse City. You won't be disappointed. 
*Tig Notaro - Tig is huge on the coasts, one of the most sought-out comedians working today. There is no show like this one. You will not see someone like Tig Notaro again in Traverse City until that guy who rides up and down Front St. waving a large Confederate flag becomes a Buddhist. 
*Mike Toomey - Hey guess what -- we're finally offering a "clean" comedy show! No swearing! No unnatural body sounds! Come see Mike Toomey, a brilliant comedian who relies on his wit and smarts instead of the F-bomb. Now that's historic! You'll see this show as a sweet oasis in the middle of a crazy weekend. Come join me in seeing Mike Toomey.
