Chris "Boom Boom" Johnson
DECEMBER BIRTHDAY SPECIAL ! Details Below.
Chris Johnson has been one of our favorites for over 10 years! He is high-energy and over-the-top hilarious, having been described as "crazy like Jim Carey"and"as energetic as a hyper kid who hasn't taken his medication."He got his nickname because the jokes and laughs come at you with such frequency and intensity that club owners started calling him "Boom Boom." His resume isn't filled with television appearances, but it's not for a lack of talent. He simply chose to remain rooted and raise a family in Rockford, Illinois rather than head west for the bright lights of L.A. His show is laced with crazy childhood stories, tales of previous jobs ( some of which only lasted a few days ) and hilarious drunken experiences -- including one which ended with Chris and a friend trying to STEAL an ostrich! Ostrich - 1 Boom Boom - 0. Great show! SHOWTIMES: THU at 8 p.m. and FRI and SATat 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. TICKET PRICES: $12 EXCEPT for the Thursday show which is just $10.
December Birthday Special: Anyone with a December birthday will get in FREEthis week with Chris Johnson and $2 OFF anyone else in the party. Please mention if you have any December birthdays when you make your reservation. If doing so online, use the "comment" box at the bottom of the reservation form. Rated-R ( mild )
New Years Eve
Auggie Smith NYE 8 P.M. and 11 P.M.
Auggie Smith delivers one of the most dynamic, hilarious and memorable shows you will EVER see !!
He first received national attention in 1997 when he finished 2nd to the legendary Mitch Hedberg in the Seattle Comedy Competition. Several years later, millions more took notice when he steam-rolled onto "The Bob and Tom Show" with one spectacular performance after another. "The Gunfighter" was born on that show. Growing up in Billings, Montana didn't make him a gun-toting cowboy, but the nickname stuck! Auggie has since traveled extensively on their "All Star" tours. In the last few years, he has also performed on Comedy Central's"Live at Gotham" and NBC's"Last Comic Standing."In 2010, he became the ONLY COMIC to win the prestigious month-long Seattle and San Francisco comedy competitions in the SAME year! He's the star of his own DVD, entitled "Cult Following," has 2 CD's and is in heavy rotation on XM and Sirius satellite radio! Finish or ring in the new year with the "Word of Aug!"
