Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Mike Armstrong
January 24 and 25
Show Time 7:30 PM
He's sold out comedy clubs all over the country, is a former cop, had hobos that lived in his front yard as a kid and has even jumped over a tiger while in the Bahamas, so it's safe to say that Mike Armstrong has no shortage in the interesting life experiences department. But that's what makes his comedy shows so enjoyable and why he's received countless standing ovations. Armstrong has a story or a prank he's pulled to go along with just about any topic, and he tells them in a way that makes it nearly impossible not to laugh. Mike is a regular on the BOB&TOM Comedy All-Stars tour and recently released his first comedy album, Comedy Police, with TV credits ranging from Oprah to CBS Morning News to Good Morning America. Mike and his wife have a small herd of children. The kids are clones of their father. They’ll say and do just about anything to get attention.
Funny man Richie Holiday didn’t grow up wanting to be a comedian. He wanted to be an architect, but quickly discovered he was terrible at math. So he took the advice of his college philosophy professor “Find something you like to do. Then do it so well someone will pay you to do it.” In early 2001, Richie tried his hand at stand-up comedy. After just two weeks of open mic he was offered a job as the house MC and decided he enjoyed getting paid to show the world he’s not quite the genius he parents hoped he would be. Described by Weird Al Yankovich as “Brilliantly Silly,” Richie Holliday’s charismatic and laid back persona has anchored his absurd and whimsical comedy. It’s a balance of the quirky and the common that made Holliday a favorite on Carnival Cruise Lines, over 150 colleges throughout America and has lead to appearances on HBO & ABC.
