Two nationally traveled acts of comedy are coming to Wyandotte Saturday, Feb.15 for the eighth annual Comedy and Cuisine fundraiser at 6 p.m. at the Riverside Banquet Center, 3530 Biddle Ave.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Knights of Columbus. With dinner provided by Crystal Gardens, the event will include drinks, wine and dessert.
The show’s headliner, Tim Slagle, a graduate of Trenton High School, has spent the last 25 years touring biker bars, bowling alleys and hotel lounges across the United States. Slagle, who is best described as a political satirist, is known for his observational humor and jokes on political correctness.
He is also a regular contributor to Liberty Magazine, a political journal with libertarian viewpoints, and occasionally appears at Republican political functions.
Connie Ettinger, a self-styled “recovering lawyer,” pairs the outwardly opposing characteristics of her small town upbringing with the life of an attorney. Her comedy creates a sarcastic view of matters ranging from the uncertainties of puberty to social media to the absurdities of the U.S. justice system.
She is a former partner in a major Detroit law firm.
And, last but not least, Andrew O’Neal, who moonlights as a stand up comedian, will serve as the show's emcee. O'Neal is the president of O'Neal Inc., a construction company in Ann Arbor. He has been doing comedy for last six years, and recently helped assemble some of the area’s top comics for a benefit for the Eastern Michigan University Construction Alumni Management Scholarship Fund.
Tickets cost $35, and are available at the K of C lounge or by calling 734.285.1530.
