Colin QuinnColin Quinn packed 'em in and delivered a fantastic hour plus set at the Lakeshore Theater last weekend. Colin talks fast and delivers joke after joke with such rapidity that I couldn't hear everything he said over the laughter. I loved his stuff about Brad Pitt traveling the world in designer duds, with a tired, stunned look on his face, and so...

Jamie Kilstein Kills ‘em

Jamie KilsteinThere is a certain kind of poise I look for in a seasoned comic, the kind of relaxed rhythm that professional musicians also have that lets you know right from the start, this guy is going to be funny and this guy is going to control the audience with ease.

Janeane Garofalo

"I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things. The glass is always half empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth." Janeane Garofalo

The Bobs PhotoTonight I got to hear The Bobs with current Bob lineup, Richard Bob Greene, Amy Bob Engelhardt, Matthew Bob Stull, and Dan Bob Schumacher at the Lakeshore Theatre. Let’s just say I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The Bobs have been “bobbing” along for 25 years with two of the original members still intact.

Louie Anderson PhotoLouie Anderson Live at The Excalibur Casino

When I went to see Louie Anderson perform live at Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, I expected to see one of the best - a master of comedy - and that’s exactly what I got! There is not much in Vegas that the whole family can enjoy so Louie’s clean and very funny stage show is a must-see, especially for anyone traveling with family members under the age of 18 looking to rekindle family chuckles together.
