Tickets are $12.50 in advance and $14.50 at the door.

Pete George has been a stand-up comedian, actor and musician for over 20 years. After several years of playing lead guitar in a Cleveland based rock band, Pete ventured into a series of comedy competitions. A quick string of wins set him off on a US comedy tour, performing over 7,000 shows at the country's most popular venues including The Funny Bone, Catch a Rising Star, The Improv and The Ice House.
Audiences have called Pete "Exhaustingly funny!" due in no small part to the high-energy performance he delivers by combining straight stand-up with his electric guitar.  Because of the unique relationship he creates with his audience, Pete enjoys a huge fan base of repeat customers.  He has been invited to perform for many corporations including Ford, Gateway Computers and American Eurocopter.  He even appeared as in-flight comedian for Continental Airlines. You also may have seen Pete's show at your University, on a Royal Caribbean cruise or while stationed at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan, Edwards Air Force Base or Fort Bragg USMC.  Any venue is a joy for this consummate funny man.
On the Hollywood side, Pete's first acting job was on the seven-time Oscar nominated film, "The Shawshank Redemption". His starring role in "Round it Goes" written and directed by Joe Stillman (Shrek) has earned Pete honors at 9 film festivals including a 1st place award and played at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. Pete also enjoys success as a commercial actor and has appeared in several TV shows including "Family Law" and "Strong Medicine" as well as a string of television commercials.
Today, Pete continues delivering his unique show to packed houses and standing ovations.  His CD “Comedy You Can Dance To” is selling like hotcakes. With plans for an upcoming TV show based on his act, you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for this rising star, the Rock Star of Comedy, Pete George.

  • Kyle Kinane
    May 28, 2017 at 8:00 PM Kyle Kinane
    Coming on-stage with a gruff demeanor and a booze-swiller's bad ass attitude, comedian Kyle Kinane surprises newcomers with his unexpectedly well-crafted standup sets. Born in Chicago, Kinane first tried his hand at comedy while attending Columbia College, influenced by the loose yet confident work of Mitch Hedberg and Patton Oswalt. He moved to Los Angeles in 2003 to pursue his craft, and by 2007, he was invited to the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival along with the television show Last Call with Carson Daly. In 2010, he released his debut album Death of the Party on the Aspecialthing label, and a year later, he starred in his own episode of the Comedy Central Presents series. In 2012 he worked alongside Bob Odenkirk, Zach Galifianakis, and others and developed an animated series for Comedy Central called Triptank. The cable television network's record label released his sophomore album, Whiskey Icarus, in 2013.
