Penguins Comedy Club Located inside The Vault presents Michael Thorne for two shows.
December 14 and 15
Show times are at 7:30 PM
Michael Thorne is an amalgam of culture and white trash raised on a greasy silver spoon in a borough of Minneapolis aptly nicknamed “Nordeast”. He has brought his hilarious observational insights on evolution, (or lack thereof), human relations, marriage & parenthood to backwoods barrooms, colleges, casinos and A-list comedy clubs from coast to coast & border to border. Michael grabbed the attention of LA bigwigs at one point who urged him to leave Minnesota to further his career. “You’re the funniest thing out of the Midwest. Now get out of the Midwest.”
But Michael favors the Midwestern family life. He will take you on a wild and hysterical tour of the minefield that is his life. Michael has shared the stage with comedy legends Steven Wright, the late Bill Hicks and the late Mitch Hedberg.

For over 15 years, Brett has enjoyed creating a vast array of characters for original comedy shows in which he starred, co-wrote, directed, and produced. The shows have featured Brett on The Tonight Show, Seinfeld, E! TV, Comic Relief, HBO, and as recurring characters on MTV... just to name a few. Things kicked up another notch for Brett when he went on to co-star with heavyweight champ James Toney in his award winning short film ‘Fight Night’ ; which he also wrote and co-produced. The film was chosen for two of the world's largest festivals - Sony's Tropfest & The Just For Laughs Comedy Festival - which that year Brett was also asked to be a host. The following year Brett was given the honor of being selected as one of 22 comics from around the world as one of The New Faces Of Comedy at The Just For Laughs Festival. In the last few years Brett has been chomping at the boob tube show by show. The NFL Quarterback Challenge... The Farrah Fawcett Story... And after appearing for his 5th appearance in Las Vegas doing stand up, the writers of NBC’s Las Vegas got the idea to write Brett into 2 episodes. Including one that was rated one of Las Vegas’ highest ever. 2010 flew in and Brett found himself touring the country doing stand-up, appearing in 3 new commercials, 5 new films and 5 new pilots - From Game Show Network to the creators of Laugh-In to Brett's new short reaching over 20,000 hits on Youtube. Most recently, Brett became one of the new chat show hosts on Actors Entertainment & Actors Reporter. With over 3 million viewers in the last year, Brett talks it up weekly with everyone from Kevin Nealon to the Red Carpet at the LA Music Awards. Stay tuned. Who knows what’s next?
