The Tomfoolery Show returns to the lovely Wicker Park Social Center in Highland, IN for a very special fundraising event! An evening of comedy and live music is in store and all ticket proceeds are dedicated to assisting a most noble organization; Boys & Girls Clubs of NW Indiana!!

 

Tomfoolery continues to deliver some of the best and brightest in comedic talent to Northwest Indiana. Rising star comedians Ben Noble and Lindsay Lucido join us for this special occasion! Both Ben and Lindsay have once graced the Tomfoolery Stage and we're delighted to once again provide them both with a platform to showcase their skills!

 

Once considered a 'rising star', but now considered to be a full-fledged STAR is Vince Acevedo!!! Vince has certainly paid his "dues" by perfomring in numerous comedy clubs, as well as appearing in numerous Tomfoolery events, over the past several years. As of late, however, Vince's schedule is quite busy as his comedy is now taking him to many distant locales! Vince is currently taking his act on the road and on the high seas, as he is a regular performer on many cruise lines! We're extremely fortunate to have booked Vince for this event!!!

 

On the musical scene, local rock icon Nick Danger provides the tunes!! The energy of Nick Danger is contagious as they are most adept at keeping the audience guessing as to which genre of music they will perform. Be it rock, blues, R&B or 'you pick it', Nick Danger always delights!!!

 

Tickets to this event are priced at $25 and seating is limited! Please order today!!
