Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Dwayne Clark.
June 7 and 8
Show time 7:30 PM


Okay - figure this one out - he’s a guitar player with no song parodies, sing-a-longs, or Dylan impressions. He’s high-energy without playing “What’s your name - where are you from” with his audience. His material is intelligent, adult, yet inoffensive. He delivers his act with southern charm that doesn’t play to the stereotypes of the dumb southerner.
 
It’s like Minnie Pearl and Tony Bennett had a baby (pardon the visual). With his infectious smile, and his undeniable charm, Dwayne steps onstage and delivers a show that every audience member will appreciate and leave with an uncontrollable craving for corn bread & caviar.

  • Charlie Weiner
    June 26, 2015 at 8:00 PM Charlie Weiner
    Charlie Wiener has headlined comedy clubs across the United States and Canada for more than 30 years. He has been called ‘Too weird for New York’, manager of the Lone Star Café and ‘Too Midwestern’, both in L.A. and Dallas, we feel he is somewhere in between.  Maybe too weird to be Midwestern or too funny to be categorized, we are not much on labels. 
     
     In that time people who have found him not too weird to work their rooms are  Zanie’s in Chicago, Nashville, Mount Vernon and St. Charles, The Loony Bin in Wichita, Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Little Rock, Goodnight’s in Raleigh, The Admiral Theater, Bremerton, WA, The Improv, Catch a Rising Star in Reno, Providence, Princeton and  Atlantic City, The Riviera and The Plaza in Las Vegas, Loonee’s in Colorado Springs, Cozzy’s in Newport News and Laff’s in Albuquerque and Tucson.
     
    He has shared the stage with Ellen Degeneres, Bobcat Goldthwait, George Lopez, Gordon Lightfoot, Randy Newman, Meatloaf, Todd Rundgren, America, (the band not the whole country, tho’ close), Jefferson Starship and many, many others.  He has performed in 49 states and several provinces of Canada as well as Dublin, Ireland, driving more than two and a half million miles and aging himself by a multiple of six. He is old, broke down and in pain which he bitches about almost constantly but that is what old people do best.
     
    The father of two adult daughters and three very odd dogs, he has lived a full life but isn't ready to cash in his chips just yet. His greatest joy is taking the stage and promoting the concept of old people becoming a drag on the younger generation. Power to the old people!, is his battle cry and the audience follows. Well, they're in wheel chairs, walkers and leaning on canes, don't move very fast and need to stop to pee every few miles... but they follow. And the young see him as hope for their future. That maybe someday if they waste their lives they, too, will get to be bitter old people as well. And that life doesn't necessarily end at 25. 
     
    With appearances on A&E, Comedy Central, his own cable shows 'Off The Wall' and 'Wienervision', CBC, NBC, ABC and CBS as well as being heard regularly on XM radio he has brought the concept of having fun while piling on the years to an art form.
     
    Charlie finds there is nothing funnier than everyday life - especially his. His subject matter ranges from travel to politics, road rage to stupid people, fatherhood to marriage, marriage to marriage to relationships back to marriage around the corner to sex (and lack thereof), Yes, it's high energy, fast paced and extremely hilarious.
     
    For more than forty years in music and comedy, Charlie has proven himself to be the consummate entertainer and one of the most requested stand-up comedians working the road.  Charlie Wiener, comedy with that old, old world edge.  If wisdom comes with age does it not seem logical that cranky is right on its heel???

  • Uncle Lar (( Larry Reeb))
    July 10, 2015 at 8:00 PM Uncle Lar (( Larry Reeb))
    Bio
    Known as Uncle Lar', Larry Reeb is the wise-cracking black sheep, politically incorrect relative everyone knows. Like any concerned relative Uncle Lar' wants to help. So in his own twisted way he does. He gives you "tips". Uncle Lar' offers tips on everything from marriage to lotteries to children. Always topping them off with, "That's a tip from your Uncle Lar'."
     
    Reeb is a strong, distinct, classic character, with sarcastic attitude and a sardonic wit. He conveys his concepts with rapid fire one liners. "It's a sick world and I'm a happy guy", Reeb proudly announces after stating his particularly twisted observations. Reeb didn't invent obscene phone calls or adultery, but he makes his living talking about them. In a perfect world Uncle Lar' would be unemployed.
     
    Where others cringe, Reeb thrives. His sharp wit was custom built to handle hecklers. During a performance a regretful drunk once shouted "talk about sex." Larry retorted, "your parents shouldn't have had it", and of course capped it with, "that another tip from your Uncle Lar'."
     
    Uncle Lar' is a regular on "The Bob & Tom Show", syndicated in over 100 markets. Larry has been voted Chicago Comedian of the Year, and has made numerous television and radio appearances.
     
    His tips are tops. His inflections infectious. And the fans are fanatics. Reeb's cult-like clan can't get enough. Whether he's headlining comedy clubs, colleges or conventions, his wit is universally appealing. Relatively speaking, everyone travels from everywhere to see their Uncle Lar'.

  • Doug T Hypnotist
    July 31, 2015 at 8:00 PM Doug T Hypnotist
    Doug Thompson ((( Hypnotist )))
     
       After touring as a stand up comic for  years Doug wanted a new way to create a better show and entertain more people. That is when he started studying hypnosis and all different types of ways to hypnotize people.   Doug wanted to take Comedy Hypnosis to the next level by creating a show that is different from all of the rest. He adds in his quick wit and spot on impressions to make the show fun from beginning to end. His comedy background is a large part of this ability. He has toured and still tours with some of the big names in comedy. Some of the names include Pauly Shore, The Impractical Jokers from TruTV, Jennifer Coolidge (Stifler's Mom), Tim Wilson, Greg Hahn, MIke MacRae, and many more..... Working in some of the greatest theaters around the country has put him in front of thousands of people.  He also keeps his shows family friendly due to the large amount of Corporate events and Colleges he works with. When asked about if volunteers on his show should be worried about coming on stage his response was simply " I treat the volunteers on stage the way I would want my wife and daughters treated, with respect and dignity! "  That is why Doug has become one of the most requested in the nation for Corporate events, Colleges and High Schools.  ESPN selected him to be a Bowl Game entertainer for teams at the Compass Bowl in Birmingham, AL.  Finding away to make people forget about the stresses of life and laugh through his 75 to 90 minute show is what DougT lives for......

  • Christine Steadman
    August 14, 2015 at 8:00 PM Christine Steadman
    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 Vegasand Atlantic City. In 2006, she was chosen to compete in Nick at Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom inAmerica. 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!
