Comedian Jim Breuer to perform in Harrisburg

in Featured Events by

Breuer came to national attention during his seasons on Saturday Night Live (1995-98), a rebuilding era whose cast featured Will Ferrell, David Spade and Norm McDonald. But don’t call him ‘Goat Boy’ (one of his characters on SNL) or ask him to do his Joe Pesci impression. Those things are eons ago. Some even still associate him with ‘Half Baked,’ a stoner comedy flick from around that time that starred Dave Chappelle and featured cameos by Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and Tommy Chong.

Many of Breuer’s newer fans know him from the multitude of hilarious hours he’s spent as a guest on Sirius XM’s ‘The Howard Stern Show.’ Howard’s hosted some of pop culture’s biggest comedy icons over the past 30 years, yet Breuer gets people telling him he’s their favorite guest ever. ‘Howard’s audiences know comedy,’ he says. ‘If they come and I’m not funny, they’re not coming back.’ That’s never happened and never going to.

Breuer was also the host of ‘Fridays with Jim Breuer’ Sirius XM, originally known as ‘Breuer Unleashed.’ He currently hosts a podcast called ‘The Jim Breuer Podcast,’ which is available on iTunes and JimBreuer.com.

Comic Vic DiBitetto puts his idle mind to work turning negatives into positives

Dibitetto will play HMAC in Harrisburg on March 18

Vic DiBitetto was something of a late bloomer. The Brooklyn native began his comedy career in 1981, grinding it out in the comedy clubs over the next several decades with moderate success. But in February 2013, he released a video on YouTube called “Bread and Milk” that changed everything. It was a humorous rant, poking fun at the general sense of panic that seems to take over whenever a major storm is predicted. And for whatever reason, it struck a chord on social media and went viral with over 17 million views.

Suddenly, DiBitetto was a legitimate star in the world of comedy at the graying age of 52. Since then he has remained white-hot — his videos regularly rack up millions of views, and his stand-up shows seem to sell out effortlessly.

THE CADILLAC THREE LAUNCH HILLBILLY HYPNOTIZED TOUR IN 2022

in Featured Events by

THE CADILLAC THREE keep it funky with their bold live show and genre-fusion tracks rooted in Country storytelling, Rock grooves and psychedelic jams they grew up on in Nashville. As they wrap a headline run in the UK and Ireland next month, the long-haired dudes today announce their HILLBILLY HYPNOTIZED TOUR. Dates kick off January 28, 2022, at Joe’s in Rosemont, IL with stops in more than 20 different cities. Tickets go on sale here this Friday (11/19) at 10:00A local time.

“We will be hitting all our favorite cities and clubs, as well as some we’ve never played before, and can’t wait to see y’all there! It’s exciting to be on the road in 2022 with the Hillbilly Hypnotized Tour!” shared TC3 frontman Jaren Johnston.

Diving back into late nights and intense miles on the road these last few months for their 10th ANNIVERSARY TOUR, which included a two-night stint at the Ryman Auditorium, TC3 officially marks a decade as a band. They have come a long way since their high school days of playing music in various arrangements, but the passion is only more amplified. Continuing to find different ways to connect with audiences the trio recently chatted with fans as they released their official video for “Devil’s Lettuce” and they also honored their hometown with an electrifying performance at the Tennessee Titans halftime show last month.

For three guys whose unabashed approach to life mimics their freewheeling musical style, TC3 is a welcome release to the stressors of daily life and reminder of community. Johnston, drummer Neil Mason and lap-steel guitarist Kelby Ray kept their creativity rolling with two versatile albums in 2020 – February’s COUNTRY FUZZand October’s surprise TABASCO & SWEET TEA – while also partnering with NIVA’s #SAVEOURSTAGES to serve independent venues.
