Comedian Mary Mack returns to the Old Gem stage with her annual holiday show entitled, “Mary Mack’s Guide to Acting Normal: Holiday Edition.”
This funny show plays for one night only, Friday, Dec. 3, at 8 p.m.
“The show at the Old Gem is always one of the most fun shows I do all year,” Mack said. “There are always new jokes and stories, and this year I will be acting out some characters to help people with the confusing new age of technology. No batteries needed.”
New to this year’s show is the large discount that seniors and students with ID get: $5 off the ticket price, no matter how old a student you are.
Mack’s show has become a holiday tradition at the Old Gem and sold out last year. Her endearing stage presence and off-kilter musical surprises stem from her background as a former music teacher and polka band leader. She demonstrates her musical virtuosity through impressive and funny tunes on her clarinet, recorder and her famous mandolin sing-alongs.
Mack has been featured on the KQRS Morning Show with Tom Barnard, appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live from Gotham” and was a finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”
She has also been featured on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show, XM’s National Lampoon’s Comedy Network and Minnesota’s Polka Spotlight.
After winning the California’s Funniest Female Contest, she went on to appear in the Vancouver Comedy Fest and HBO’s Andy Kaufman Awards.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and students with ID. Call 715-246-3285 or 800-886-8035 for reservations or more information about the Old Gem Theater. Visit: www.oldgemtheater.com.
