Apr/26th/8pm, Hen Party featuring Karen Mills and Leann Morgan, $15 Gen

by on Jan.17, 2013, under Comedy show

Hen Party

Click here for videos

Karen Mills is a breath of fresh air. Her humor is smart, funny, and original. No one can help you “get your laugh on” better than she can. She’s been compared to such greats as Bill Cosby, Ellen Degeneres, and Jerry Seinfeld. Her comedy is clean, clever and relatable – she finds the funny in everyday life. A native of Tennessee, this southern girl makes one thing clear, “I am NOT a southern belle, unless I need to be.”

Leanne is married to an “conservative republican” with three children. Her comedy focuses on her children who are always first priority. Being a mother of three young children in rural Appalachia did not allow for many traveling dates in her early career. Her first public attempt at standup comedy was to emcee at a local variety show for a men’s civic club. This two-night stand led to many appearances in local East Tennessee coffee houses and scores of regional corporate events.

Feb/21/7:00/$27GA/$35VIP James Gregory Live at the Historic Capri Theatre, an MKT Entertainment Production

by on Jan.11, 2013, under Comedy show

For over two decades, the unforgettable caricature of veteran comedian James Gregory has stood grinning: his shirt untucked, his arms outstretched, a carefree welcome to a down-home, hilarious comedy experience. It’s storytelling at its best. The trademark caricature is the essence of James Gregory’s comedy: rib-tickling reflections on life from the front porch. 

James does not “tip-toe” through life as if he’s walking on broken glass or egg shells. That style is evident on stage as well. He is not politically correct. Much of his humor is centered on brilliant observations of crazy relatives and people obsessed with the slightest change in weather conditions – now referred to as global warming. He delights in poking fun at modern sensitive parents and out-of-control environmentalists.

The James Gregory show turns the clock back to a time when life was simpler; to a better time, before the death of common sense; a time when people sat on the front porch and actually talked to each other without a cell phone in their ear.

Gregory’s success, like his comedy, is the direct result of the values he grew up with. And now, twenty something years later, it is this unique brand of humor that packs the crowds into his sold-out shows. The absence of vulgarity sets James apart and his stories are carefully crafted art. “I have lived long enough to know people, know life”, Gregory reflects. “My comedy is based on my life experiences. It’s real, it’s funny and the audience loves it. That’s why I’m still in business.”   James is heard weekly on syndicated radio shows such as Rick & Bubba, John Boy & Billy and Bob & Tom. Combined, these shows are broadcast to people in over 220 cities nationwide. As a result, he now has a grass-root following that numbers in the millions.

This show is brought to you by  MKT Entertainment

July/27th/9PM/$10 The Reverend Billy C. Wirtz, Up from Cocoa Beach FL for round 2

by on Jun.17, 2012, under Comedy show, Live Music, Theatrical experience

This is the 2nd time the Reverend has been here.  Seems this is going to be a regular stop on his way up from Cocoa Beach to the biggests music festival on the east coast “Bele Chere”.  Reverend Billy C. Wirtz is a recording artist whose material consists of irreverent comedy routines set to music. His humor is somewhat raunchy, if not offensive, and thus is not normally considered suitable for children. His material often mocks conservative politics and religion. From the moment he sits down at the piano and lights into his Southern old-time gospel and blues with a twist, the six-foot-five-inch, goateed, tattooed tongue-in-cheek “Rev” commands the stage and spreads the “gospel” like nobody’s business. With puns flying as fast as his fingers, the Rev plays masterly boogie-woogie and barrelhouse riffs while holding forth on subjects as diverse as W.W.E.D.? (What Would Elvis Do?), Mennonite Surf Parties, and dubious relationships between people you are terrified that you may actually know.  While widely recognized as a humorist, music is his forte. In the early 80s, he shared a walk-up with the late blues legend Sunnyland Slim, learning to appreciate the Blues and to perform it with fervor. A recognized musicologist, Billy has written about music, legendary performers and life on the road for Musician, Keyboard and BluesWax. He is a regular contributor to the Charlotte Observer. Workshops on Blues and/or Gospel Music at festivals and universities have left students clamoring for more.

SEE THE REVEREND IN ACTION

Read the Reverend’s article he wrote for the Charlotte Observer,

And after all these years, I am playing “Last Date,” on a stage, where Hank Williams, Jimmy Rodgers, Ernest Tubb and countless others, the famous and not-so-famous, have preceded me.

I am at the legendary Capri on Main, in Gaffney, S.C.

Chasing Parked Cars crosses the border again for the first time in over a year (apparently, all restraining orders have expired) as we hit Capri On Main in Gaffney, SC. This is our first show at this incredible theater, and it promises to be a good one! Come out for an interactive comedy experience you won’t soon forget!   So, Who Is Chasing Parked Cars?
Chasing Parked Cars is a small group of friends with big ambitions. We all have a great sense of humor and we never take ourselves too seriously. We love pointless conversations and bringing life to the zany characters swimming around in our heads.
