Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Don Tjernagel.
Thursday July 18th
Show time 7:30 PM

The comedic hydra, Don Tjernagel takes the stage again, showcasing his talent for raw humor in his show “The Comedy Monster”. A monster comedian with many sides to his twisted head takes to the stage once more. While Don Tjernagel’s rare blend of honest observation of unmentionables usually creates a stir of discomfort, this show may make people cringe outright. 
“The Comedy Monster” stand-up show promises to deliver a fully uncensored live performance for those who like to see a truly unabashed comedian express exactly what he really thinks. Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel has run rampant on stages across the country before. Tjernagel started his stand-up career in 1997 and has continued to figuratively crash his way through audiences comfort zone ever since. Since his debut in Las Vegas, Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel has fine-tuned his show. After a brief period of dormancy, Tjernagel has continued to add to and update bits and pieces to his routine. Now Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel has created a monster of a show for those willing to sit down and watch as he deconstructs long held institutions with his dirty sense of humor. 
Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel remains “the world’s best and smartest dirty comedian” according to Richard Lanoie of theseriouscomedysite.com, a recurring reviewer of Tjernagel’s work. Don “Donzilla” Tjernagel has a singularly dirty mind capable of turning from blowjob jokes to political statements in one small bound. Furthermore, Don backs up Lanoie’s claim with his excellent comic timing, insistence on free speech and uncensored material and his continued dedication to dirty and smutty jokes. The “Donzilla” promises to present a show that upholds the 
kind of tasteless filth he and his audiences love.

    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!
