Thursday Night Comedy Series announced

Posted: Friday, August 16, 2013

Eagles Theatre announces the on sale date for its three-show Thursday Night Comedy Series. Tickets for performances by comedians Reno Collier, Alex Reymundo, and Bob Zany and Zan Aufderheide of the Zan and Zany Show go on sale at 8 a.m. Wednesday, August 21. All shows will be held on the stage 1905 movie house located in the heart of Wabash.

The Zan and Zany Show starring Bob Zany and Zan Aufderheide will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, September 19, kicking off the Thursday Night Comedy Series at Eagles Theatre. Zany and Aufderheide, an Indiana native, pair up in what has been billed a generational comedy performance with improv and audience participation. Zany offers up blunt and straight-forward style comedy while Aufderheide tempers her zingers with Midwest good-naturedness in what could be called “The Sweet and Sour Show.” The September show marks Zany’s return to Wabash following his participation in the “Bob and Tom Comedy All-Stars” show that played at the Honeywell Center in February 2010.

Alex Reymundo, known to many as the audience favorite of the first season of P. Diddy’s “Bad Boys of Comedy,” will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, October 24. Reymundo has been a longtime tour partner with fellow Texan Ron White, for whom he opened at the Honeywell Center this past February. During the past two decades, Reymundo has emerged as a standout in stand up. He appeared alongside Paul Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, George Lopez and Joey Medina in Paramount Picture’s “The Original Latin Kings of Comedy” and starred in his own one-hour comedy specials, “Hick-Spanic” and “Red-Nexican.”

A former P.E. teacher from West Virginia, Reno Collier brings his unique comedic outlook on life to the Eagles Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, November 14. As Collier regales tales involving mishaps by his West Virginia cousins, his Scottish heritage, unruly in-laws and alien abductions, audiences find themselves laughing uncontrollably, prompted by Collier’s contagious laugh. He has toured the world with the likes of Jeff Foxworthy, Ron White, Bill Engvall, and, most notably, Larry the Cable Guy, with whom he has twice crisscrossed the United States and Canada. Collier’s appearance at the Eagles Theatre marks the comedian’s return to Wabash, where he previously has taken the stage at the Honeywell Center when he opened for Bill Engvall (March 2012) and Larry the Cable Guy (April 2013).

Tickets are $30 for the series, $12 per show presale ticket, $15 day of the show. Tickets may be purchased at the box office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, by calling (260) 563.1102 or visiting www.honeywellcenter.org.  All three shows are considered PG-13.
