Gallagher’s Joke’s On You Comedy Tour

With Gallagher, Artie Fletcher & Bob Nelson

MEET THE COMEDIANS:

Gallagher : Sure, he’s the famous watermelon smasher. Yes, he literally INVENTED the television stand-up comedy special. Absolutely, 14 Showtime specials is a big deal. And certainly 3,500 live shows to capacity crowds is worth mentioning. But how about that he is the reason they invented Comedy Central? Or that before him no one ever had that level of interaction with a live audience? Or that he was the #1 comedian (in ticket sales and ratings) for almost 15 years? Gallagher has led an extroardinary life, with an even more spectacular career. His fanbase is one of the most loyal there is, and he rewards them every chance he gets.

Artie Fletcher: Artie is one of the Entertainment Industry’s most talked-about “must-see” performers. No stranger to Film and Television, Commercials, Voice-overs, Print and Live Stand-up Comedy, Artie is taking the industry and Newstalk Radio waves by storm. Artie has been seen on Law and Order, Conan O’Brien, David Letterman and The Tonight Show. He has performed his dynamic act in such places as Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Radio City Music Hall, Westbury Music Fair, The Toyota Comedy Festival, The Chicago Comedy Festival and Universal Orlando…to name a few. Artie performs internationally, performing for audiences in places as diverse as England, Canada, Hong Kong and ArubaHe has righteously been spotlighted in Las Vegas, Radio City Music Hall, Atlantic City and opened for the likes of Joan Rivers, Regis Philbin, Howie Mandell and Tony Bennett.

Bob Nelson: Watching a Bob Nelson live performance is like watching several different types of top comedians all rolled up into one. Characters like the lovable nerd Eppy Epperman, punchy boxer Jiffy Jeff and chicken rancher Wilby Stuckinson are as funny and memorable as any you will see in comedy today. Bob’s football routine is a recognized comedy classic and “Morning”, his tale of a farmer and a duck, is one of the finest works of one man showmanship to grace the modern stage. If all that were not enough, Bob’s ability to relay personal stories and observations about everyday life put him in the same league as the best of today’s stand-up comics. His shows are filled with spontaneity, zaniness and singular moments that will astound you. Throughout his career Bob Nelson has been hailed as one of the most gifted funny people on the planet.
