Laugh out loud for a good cause
Monday, May 12, 2014
KITTERY, Maine — Spend an evening laughing it up for a good cause at the STAR Theatre in the Kittery Community Center on May 17 at 8 p.m. This fun-filled evening is a benefit for the Kittery Rotary After Hours and the Kittery Community Center.
This 18+ show is hosted by Tttom Clark and features Dave Rattigan and headliner Bob Seibel. Tickets are $15 for general admission or $20 for table seating and can be purchased at the Kittery Community Center, TD Bank or Hillside Flowers in advance. There will also be a silent auction and cash bar available.
Host Tttom Clark is a Kittery resident and has been called the “Mel Tillis of Stand up Comedy.” Like Mel, his slight stutter disappears when his comedic voices hit the stage. Tom has been in the spotlight for three decades. He’s been a singer, dancer, actor, speaker and writer. Tttom has delighted television audiences nationwide on A&E’s “An Evening at the Improv” and has since launched a career as a TV commercial spokesperson and actor.
Featured comic Dave Rattigan, whose deadpan delivery and quick, dry wit has made him a favorite at clubs, corporate shows, colleges, theaters and fund-raising shows in Boston and New England, opens the night. Described as edgy enough to keep comedy fans engaged, but clean enough to work in front of corporate audiences, Rattigan has performed around the Northeast United States and in Ireland. His CD, “Dave Rattigan: Thinks He’s Funny”, has received airplay on XM-Sirius Satellite Radio and on radio stations around the world. Rattigan has performed on shows with major national comedy and musical acts including Steven Wright, Bob Marley and Jeff Dunham.
Headliner Bob Seibel is one of Boston’s most popular comedians and certainly one of the funniest. To say Bob is a unique act is an understatement. The audience is totally aware, and becomes willingly involved with his presence the moment he steps onto the stage and takes command of their attention. Every routine is greeted with enthusiasm and laughs. His reputation for quick, sustained improvisation is well known throughout the Comedy Clubs in the New England area. It is a guaranteed evening of pure entertainment for any audience young and old willing to take a deep breath and hold onto any fixed object while Bob takes them on a fast paced, non-stop tour of life as seen by one of its most off beat visitors.
