The Comedian and Magician were OK for the venue and the price. The manager and stafff were pleasant and accomodating. Although the tickets were discounted or free, the prices for the drinks, considering a two drink minimum were very high,...continued

The first 2 acts were average at best but the the magician was great! I kept wondering how did he do that? Just a word of warning, if you blink you might miss something. He did the tricks pretty fast but he definitely kept my interest. The only...continued

April 12-13 & 18-20, 2013; May 31: Collin A. Bullock

Collin A. Bullock headlines a stand-up comedy showcase. Bullock is a young comedian, based out of Chicago, who’s tearing up the national scene like a weevil with a rocket on his back. He’s also really good at similes. Collin combines well written jokes with sharp crowd work to create a well rounded act that can entertain audiences. Everything from family troubles to pie eating contests to the 1996 Steven Seagal vehicle_ Executive Decision_ is skewered by Bullock’s slightly warped point of view. Collin’s been touring the country for several years now, emceeing and featuring at some of the top clubs and colleges in the nation. He’s worked rooms such as The Comedy Store and The Laugh Factory in LA, Zanies and Second City in Chicago, Comedy Club on State in Madison, The Wisconsin Dells Comedy Club, and much more! He’s even appeared on television AND on Sirius XM. 

April 26-27: Bob Jay, Man of 999 Voices

Now on his ‘Voices in his Head’ tour, and known as the man of 999 voices, Bob Jay is a stand up comic, impersonator and master of sound effects. Bob brings dozens of celebrities and cartoon characters to life in his hilarious show that is astounding and amazing audiences from coast to coast.

May 3-4: Peter Lipsey & Friends

Peter Lipsey lives in Wilmette, IL, a suburb just north of Chicago with his wife, three kids. Unlike other comedians, he has had many jobs in the ‘real world’ including being a licensed Realtor, before delving into the business of being funny. After receiving his Journalism degree from Drake University, Peter held many writing positions for radio stations, magazines and an advertising agency. It wasn’t until he worked part-time as a bartender at a club that had ‘open mic’ competitions, that he decided to try standup. The first time he went on stage, Peter went 15 minutes over the time limit not knowing that the flashing red light meant get the #$%@# off the stage. With many years years under his belt, Peter knows his audience, which is intelligent, literate and sharp. His delivery comes right out of the old school: premise, setup and punch line. If you get it — great. If not, too bad. 

May 17-18: Tim Walkoe

Tim Walkoe is nonstop laughter from start to finish, is what the Chicago Tribune had to say about the stand up comedy performance of Tim Walkoe going on to comment, Walkoe’s rapid fire delivery and shoot from the hip style leaves audiences laughing so hard it’s hard to catch up to the next joke. Tim Walkoe is a veteran headliner at over 100 comedy clubs nationwide including the Comedy Stop in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, Zanies, Funny Bones, Comedy Store and many more. He has also been a featured performer at the Chicago Comedy Festival for the past 4 years. Tim Walkoe is a $10,000 grand prize winner on ABC TV’s America’s Funniest People, Tim has appeared in a recurring role on Fox TV’s Murder in Small Town X as Mayor Emerson Bowden. Other television credits include A&E, HBO, Showtime, TNN, PBS, and recently Fox Sports Net Profile Awards in Los Angeles and Chicago. Tim Walkoe is a musician and improvisational acto who uses these talents throughout his performances.

May 24-25: Patti Vasquez

Funny happens. And it always happens when comedian Patti Vasquez is around. You don’t have to take our word for it either. Lewis Black says, “Patti is simply marvelous.” Bill Maher called her, “The funniest woman in comedy since Carol Burnett.” For some reason being a mother of two with a “stay at home Dad” (which sounds so much better than “unemployed husband”) while living with her parents is a great motivator for Patti to just get out of the house. But Patti loves being a mom to her beautiful little boys. Griffin, who loves trains, Batman and talking as much as his mom, is the best big brother to Declan, who loves music, water and hugs. Declan also happens to have special needs, a part of Patti’s life that she isn’t afraid to talk about. She has begun sharing her story with humor and heart for groups such as the Iowa Department of Education, The Hope Network and Gilda’s Club.
