Stand-Up Comedy and Holiday Classics on the Bill


Saturday, October 20th


One of the funniest comedians ever, Mandel returns to the Event Center with his uproarious stand-up act. Making people laugh for over 30 decades, the funny man still does 200 shows throughout Canada and the U.S. a year. Having done television and film, he has also added bestselling author to his credits with his book, “Here’s the Deal: Don’t Touch Me” where Mandel talks about his OCD and ADD in a humorous way, showing you can conquer your fears and overcome these issues in your life. Also suffering from mysphobia (a fear of germs), the Howie Mandel fist bump instead of shaking hands is known worldwide. His earlier television work showed he also had a more serious side when he played Dr. Wayne Fiscus on the hit drama, “St. Elsewhere” in the early 1980’s. Creating the ever-popular children’s animated series, “Bobby’s World”, which features his voice as Bobby, earned him multiple Emmy nominations. More recently the comedian just finished his 8th season on the summer hit, “America’s Got Talent” as one of the judges. Not one to take a break between gigs, Mandel will be the host of the reboot of his most popular game show, “Deal Or No Deal” from 2005 when it premiers on CNBC on December 5th. If you haven’t seen Mandel doing his live stand-up routine, make it a point to see him this time around. Those of us who have seen him can testify that you will leave all the better for it ... and in these days especially, we can all use more laughter.

The brother & sister team bring their holiday favorites to the Event Center with their close sibling performing style that started five decades ago and is still evident today. Having done their own successful TV Variety Show in the 1970’s, the two have gone on to record two pop music duets, “I’m Leaving It All Up To You” and “Morning Side Of The Mountain”. Huge solo careers followed them throughout the decades, garnering numerous chart topping singles and albums, which earned them some of the top music award nominations including Grammys. The pair have both been involved in starring roles on Broadway including Marie in “The King & I” and “The Sound of Music” and Donny in “Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and “Beauty and the Beast”. The Osmond Family celebrated their 50th year in Entertainment in 2008 and the brother/sister duo started performing in Vegas at the Flamingo Hotel that same year, with the “Donny & Marie Show” that turned a six-week run into a mainstay show still going on today. The Flamingo Hotel has even renamed the showroom “The Donny & Marie Showroom”. Teaming up again, they put together a holiday musical called “Donny & Marie - A Broadway Christmas” originally scheduled for 10 shows in December of 2010, which was extended through January 2nd, 2011. The show was so popular that it has turned into a touring production and is now a yearly event in several cities across the country. Lucky for us, we are one of the stops this year.

Singer/songwriter Jewel has come a long way from her humble beginnings growing up in Alaska. After leaving Alaska, she became a homeless teenager living in San Diego. Finding music has defined her life and has gotten her through anything that has been thrown her way. Her debut album, “Pieces of You” was one of the best selling debut albums of all times and spent 2 years on the Billboard 200 chart, with songs like “You Were Meant for Me”, “Foolish Games” and “Who Will Save Your Soul”. Earning multiple Grammy nominations and an American Music Award, as well as an MTV Video Music Award, the singer credits her mentors, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, who took the time to groom and encourage her, for who she is musically. Describing her music as pop, folk and country, Jewel has had 23 hit singles and is currently working on her next project … a new studio album slated for release in the summer of 2019, which will coincide with her silver anniversary as a recording artist and followed by a tour. For now, she is touring with family members and special guests Atz and Atz Lee from Discovery Channel’s Series, “Alaska: The Lost Frontier” and Nikos Kilcher, bringing a perfect family Christmas filled with holiday favorites, stories, traditions and love wherever the show makes a stop. Bring your family and join Jewel’s family and friends for new holiday memories to keep for years to come.
