Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Kevin Farley.
March 15 and 16 at 7:30 PM
He will also be a part of our float in this year St. Patty's Parade - In Cedar Rapids on Sunday.

Kevin Farley (accomplished actor, writer, director) has truly established himself as a comedic presence both on the big screen and television.

Kevin P. Farley grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, as the fourth child of five children and he attended Marquette University where he earned a business degree. Farley then went to work for his father's business, but eventually moved to Chicago and studied at the famed Second City.

The minute he relocated to Los Angeles he began landing roles in films such as Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. Then Farley landed a starring role as "Doug Linus" on MTV's sitcom 2gether where he was met with rave reviews. After that Farley appeared in numerous TV series programs such as That '70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Joey, Just Shoot Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm and many more.

When Farley moved more into feature films, his unsurprising emphasis was exclusively on comedy. He appeared in the Adam Sandler animated comedy Eight Crazy Nights, and soon after The Waterboy, Dirty Work, the Cedric the Entertainer laugh-fest Johnson Family Vacation to name a few. Farley recently starred in the lead role of An American Carol playing a cynical, Anti-American "Hollywood" filmmaker who sets out on a crusade to abolish the 4th of July holiday. He is visited by three spirits who take him on a hilarious journey in an attempt to show him the true meaning of America. This comedy film, (directed by David Zucker) is a parody of liberal filmmaker Michael Moore that "lampoons contemporary American culture, particularly Hollywood." It uses the framework of A Christmas Carol but moves the setting of the story from Christmas to Independence Day. The supporting cast included Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, Dennis Hopper, and Leslie Nielsen

Soon to be released this fall is the feature film Hollywood and Wine, which Farley co-wrote, directed and stars in. The film also stars Chazz Palminteri, Chris Kattan, David Spade, Norm MacDonald and Jeremy London. Next up is Farley's latest written project Back in the Saddle - a western comedy set in Wyoming.

Multi tasking is easy for Farley - he does it all with a fabulously contagious sense of humor, both on screen and off.

  • Michael Thorne
    May 20, 2016 at 7:30 PM Michael Thorne

    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.

    Christine can best be described as one funny mother!   She has a husband, a twenty-something son who lives at home, a divorced daughter and three grand-kids. This gives her a full portfolio of material to draw from.  A lot of people ask Chris why she began a career in comedy so late in life. Well, it’s not a coincidence that she started immediately after her daughter began having babies! Chris does not like to baby-sit! Sure, traveling around the country telling jokes to drunks in smoky nightclubs was not the most practical way to get out of baby-sitting, but she decided it was definitely worth a try. (It was either that, or go to truck-driving school and she hates the way she looks in flannel shirts! ) So far, this desperate attempt to distance herself from family obligations has worked out quite nicely. She’s come a long way from her early years in comedy.

    She currently headlines in some of the top clubs in the country and has become a favorite at “The Comedy Stop” in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. In 2006, she was chosen to compete in Nick at Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom in America. She appeared in six episodes and made it all the way to the finale where it came down to only 5 finalists. Ok, she didn’t win—-but just ask anyone who has seen her perform and they will tell you that she is definitely one funny mother!
