What’s funny about going to a fancy restaurant and having to yell at your kids quietly? Is it really humorous when two boys convert a shower stall into a “vertical bathtub”? Or has your 15 year old left so many jackets at school, they just converted his locker into a Burlington Coat Factory?
Well, with more than 53 national TV appearances, 87 years of standup comedy experience and 28,346 diapers changed, these guys should know. The Stand Up Dads, comedians Dan St. Paul (A&E, VH-1, and Comedy Central), Kelly McDonald (Tonight Show) and Milt Abel (San Francisco Comedy Competition) turn their wit and nutty observations about family life into a show that keeps the audience laughing almost from beginning to end. Each comic performs a routine infused with good-spirited humor along with a little tenderness about parents, wives and cherished, but maddening children. Kaskaskia College is pleased to present the Stand Up Dads for one night only on Saturday, February 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the KC Jane Knight Auditorium.
Just in time for a night out with your favorite valentine, McDonald, Abel and St. Paul examine the grist of fatherhood and suburban life: from child birth (‘9lbs. 10oz. We had special cigars that said 'It's A Man') to adolescence (My bumper sticker reads ‘My son’s just getting by at Hillsdale High) it’s all meat to be skewered. All are fathers who pride themselves on performing clever material about family life that has audiences laughing across America. If ever there was a reason to call a sitter, this is it!
Tickets are $23 for adults and $12 for youth 18 and under, and can be purchased by calling the KC Box Office at 618-545-3223 or going online at www.kaskaskia.edu/soe.
