June 2 & 3 ANDREW KENNEDY


Andrew Kennedy was born in Bogota, Colombia and spent most of his formative years in South America, the Caribbean and the Far East.

By the time he was thirteen, Andrew had lived in Colombia, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Hong Kong, and the United States, returned once more to Venezuela, and then finally settled in New Canaan, Connecticut (his father got fired a lot). Can you hear all of the comedy in this mix of family dynamics?

June 9 & 10 MR. SHOWTIME ~ DAVID SCOTT


Long a Las Vegas regular, Mr. Showtime, David Scott, is an entertainer like no other. This juggernaut is a showman whose performances have been called "Sharp-witted", "Clever", "Classy" and "Pure Energy”. Not only is there great stand-up comedy but there is so much more. There’s terrific singing as only a former “rocker" can sing. There's a straight jacket. There's the "World's Most Dangerous Bit in Comedy". Even a little mind reading. David has been featured on HBO and Comedy Central, is the host of his own nationally syndicated radio show and also happens to be the Guinness World Record Holder for Longest Stand-Up Comedy show by an individual at 40 hours and 8 minutes. Forget everything you think you know about stand-up comedy – this might be the most diverse, highest energy act you’ve ever seen! Friday @ 9:00 ($20), Saturday @ 7:30 & 10:00 ($20)
