Memories Dinner Theatre presents MAN WITH THE PLASTIC SANDWICH matinee series

By Russ Bickerstaff
  It was first published in the early '80's, but it could've been published last week. Roger Karshner's The Man With The Plastic Sandwich tells the tale of a guy who just got fried from his job after 20 years.

Memories Ballroom Presents Interactive Murder Mystery

By Russ Bickerstaff

More Comedy

By Russ Bickerstaff
  As I write this, local funny guys Patrick Schmitz and Dave Bogan are only a little over an hour away from their next Game Show Night at the Alchemist Theatre. The strange mix of comedy and game show-like social dynamics sounds like fun. And if you’re only just now hearing about this, it may be too late. The Facebook invitation has already registered some 23 confirmed guests. When one consi...
