A Family of Quality Publications Celebrating the Place We Call Home
Something weird’s about to go down when Tom Clark takes the stage. With a wild-eyed smile and purposefully awkward delivery, Tom’s act takes on realities of life in the most original and unusual way. Tom has performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” CBS’s “The Late Late Show,” NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and has appeared on The Bob and Tom Show, The Game Show Network, on FOX’s “On The Lot” and syndicated Comedy TV.
Auggie Smith first unleashed his politically incorrect rants on pop culture 20 years ago. Since then, his willingness to spout about anything current-event related has garnered the comedian national appeal. Auggie has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” the 2007 season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and on The Bob and Tom All-Stars Tour. He was voted Club Comic of the Year in 2008 at the Aspen RooftopComedy Festival.
Keith Alberstadt is the first to laugh at himself. The son of a professor and craft artist, he grew up with sharp perception, mischievous wit and an “inner dork” he’ll convince you resides in all of us. Keith has performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on CNN Headline News and CMT’s “Redneck Moments.” He also performs overseas for U.S. troops and has been a contributing writer for “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update.
Mo Mandel was raised by hippies in the woods of Northern California. Flash forward to 2010 and the comedian has taken his act national, appearing on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” E! Network’s “Chelsea Lately,” The Bob and Tom Show and Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham.” In April Mo appeared on “The Bonnie Hunt Show” and premiered his half-hour Comedy Central Presents special.
Doug Benson’s name may be synonymous with stoner comedy, but the longtime stand-up pro is one of the smartest comics on the circuit. He co-created and performed in the stage-show "The Marijuana-Logues,” created his own documentary "Super High Me" that was released on DVD in 2008. Doug hosts popular comedy podcast "I Love Movies with Doug Benson,” and Comedy Central Records produced his new CD “Unbalanced Load.” Doug has appeared on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” is a regular commentator on VH-1’s “Best Week Ever” and released a new documentary called "The High Road with Doug Benson" this winter on G4 Network.
*Graham Elwood (Skyline fave) will headine Wednesday and Thursday (July 14-15), and feature for Doug Benson Friday and Saturday. ($8 Wed | $8 Thur)
John Evans started out like many great comics—with an Andy Rooney impression and a dream. He moved from Oklahoma to Minnesota, dropped the impression and performed on the Friends of the Bob and Tom Tour, and opened for Lewis Black and George Carlin. A soft spot for Sno Cones and tropical fish, the comedian also performed on two seasons of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham.”
Appleton comedian Mike Merryfield covers all bases. Like an iPod set to shuffle, Mike effortlessly swings between styles and topics – from why Dale Earnhardt shouldn’t be God’s driver, to ogling girls who don phrases on the back of their jogging pants. The Appleton-based comic has performed as part of HBO’s “The Lucky 21” comedy festival in Las Vegas and at the Boston Comedy Festival.
Remember when life was as simple as peanut butter on Wonder Bread? When a summer afternoon was complete with a pitcher of Kool-Aid, some Pop Rocks and a game of lawn jarts with the neighborhood kids? Relive the wonder of your youth with The Wonder Bread Years, a colorful show about the black and white era. Wisconsin's own John McGivern leads a nostalgic journey back in time that will leave you laughing until the milk comes right out of your nose!
On a cold, clear, moonless Friday night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised; hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. But the bruises heal and the hearts mend—almost—in what has been described as “a comic, romantic roundelay” by The Wall Street Journal, “a wooly midwinter night’s dream” by The Dallas Observer, “love in the time of frostbite” by The New York Sun, “a sweet-natured valentine to fools and idioms” by The Los Angeles Times, “a gem” by Florida Weekly, “an unapologetically romantic fable” by The Arizona Republic, and “an effervescent yet deeply felt tragicomedy” by The Melbourne Age (Australia). ALMOST, MAINE inventively explores the mysteries of the human heart, touching audiences with laughter, heartbreak and hope.
