Comedy Showcase Featured
Feb. 15 at UW-Eau Claire
MAILED: Feb. 6, 2002
EAU CLAIRE — The streetwise wit of Michael jr. and the improvisational antics of ComedySportz will be presented on the Winter Carnival Comedy Showcase Friday, Feb. 15, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
Doors will open at 9 p.m. for the show in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center.
ComedySportz is a fast-paced comedy competition complete with referee, points and penalties. Two teams of comedians improvise a series of comedy sketches based on audience suggestions - and the audience determines the victors.
An admitted people-watcher, Michael jr. thanks Hollywood for giving him his start in comedy. One night, while watching a movie in a crowded theater where the film suddenly broke, he acted on a dare to tell a few jokes and entertain the audience. When the house lights came up he walked in front of the blank screen and discovered a new career. The comedian has brought his laid-back style and unique perspective on everyday life to audiences from New York to San Francisco.
Tickets are $5 ($3 for UW-Eau Claire students) at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, and will be sold at the door.
Patrons may charge their tickets to MasterCard or Visa when they order by phone. Call the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727 - or, outside the immediate Eau Claire area, call toll-free (800) 949-UWEC. A $3 handling fee will be added to all telephone charge orders.
The show is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
