In just a few short weeks laughter and economic activity will be headed toward the snowy streets of downtown Traverse City for Presidents Day Weekend, February 13-16.
Our comedy line-up includes some of the top comedians in the business like Michael Ian Black, Tig Notaro, Dave Foley, Tim Meadows, Stephen Lynch, Sinbad, Fred Willard and Rosie O’Donnell.
