Welcome to the Traverse City Winter Comedy Arts Festival!
Some of you are here, naturally, to celebrate Presidents Day weekend. Ah, Presidents Day weekend! That annual holiday where we dress up like Millard Fillmore and Warren G. Harding and just get wasted.
Others, though, are here to spend Valentine’s Day with that special loved one who adores you and who will always be there for you, no matter what. That couple is sitting in Row J, Seats 7 and 8. Wave to them.
Whatever your reason for being here — hopefully it’s to see some of the best comedians the country has to offer — we hope that you have a good time in our neck of the northern woods. Like any town up here, we’ve got a Zip Line, a Frozen Ferris Wheel, an Ice Rink in the middle of the street, a Slip and Fall Olympics, Monster Dog Pulls, and so much more to help you experience the singular pleasures of frostbite and black ice that we live with up north nine months of the year.
Go see comedy! Then see more comedy! Grover Cleveland and Calvin Coolidge have never been funnier.
Michael Moore and Jeff Garlin
