Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Pete George - November 31 and December 1 at 7:30 PM.
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.

OTHER GREAT SHOWS!

  • Dwight York
    August 19, 2016 at 8:00 PM Dwight York

    “I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until York says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.

    Dwight York performs at many of the nation’s top comedy clubs and every summer headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has appeared at the Great American Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest. In October of 2014, he placed 2nd at the Laughlin Laugh Fest.

    York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. York’s CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy Channel and was rated a “top ten comedy release of the year” by The Serious Comedy Site. Laffspin Magazine says that Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a  compliment to all three master comics.
