Comedy Night at the Grand Traverse Distillery is back with the hilarious Mike Geeter bringing some funny friends for what is sure to be a wild night!
As an Ivy League dropout and community college graduate from Pontiac, MI, Mike brings a pointed look at life, family, and relationships that few others can…or should. From his upbringing in a family with 17 children to discussing his plight as a father and husband, Mike’s comedy is jagged wit mixed with a smooth delivery. Mike has worked in some of the finest comedy venues in the country to work with comedy legends Kevin Hart, Bobby Slayton, Jim Norton, Artie Lange, and Rickey Smiley. Mike was featured on Fox Television’s comedy showcase “Laughs” and “Kevin Hart Presents: Hart Of The City 2” on Comedy Central. https://michaelgeeter.com/
This event will also feature the hilarious JR Willaims, a finalist in the recent TC Charity Joke Jam!
JR Williams fell into comedy in 2014 carrying a baby in one arm and holding a microphone in his other hand. Now the self described “Effective Parent” of four travels the Midwest using his “everyday dad” demeanor to vent about why he’s glad his kids are gullible, why he loves being an immature husband, and everything he hates about you and your kids.
Don’t miss out on an evening with one of the funniest comics working today!
Your host for the evening is local favorite Matthew Zerilli
The show starts at 8pm (doors at 7:30) and cover is $10 at the door. Email advance ticket requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
