    One night only! Great comedy and incredible bluegrass music.

    This is unlike any comedy show you’ve seen. All the humor is inspired by actual, strange public documents, such as: FCC complaints about Big Bang Theory being too violent, FBI profiles of sports stars, and creative immigration applications.

    The band includes IBMA-winning banjo player Bennett Sullivan, IBMA-winner Annie Staninec, Austin Alfano, Nick Conte, and Maddie Witler (Lonely Heartstring Band) on mandolin.

    Come for the bluegrass, stay for the laughs.

    Or come for the laughs, and be pleasantly surprised by the music.
