This in-person event will take place outdoors at the Lake County Fairgrounds on Friday, June 11th, and will be emceed by Robin Rock of 93.9 LITE FM.
A jam-packed evening of entertainment will include live music from the highly entertaining, Dick Diamond & the Dusters!!
The live comedy will include
1) Sherman Edwards who was named "Entertainer of the Year" by Campus Activities Magazine and won ‘Best Stand Up Comic in Chicago’ by the Chicago Reader and has been lucky enough to perform at the TBS Just for Laughs Festival in Chicago, The Del Close Marathon in New York, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and a few other notable places which have given him his cool, comfortable, laid-back style. Born and raised in Virginia but currently residing in Chicago, he can be found doing stand-up, plays, and improv around the country. You can currently see him on the new series Single Long airing exclusively on HBO GO!
2) Since first taking the comedy scene by storm in 2009, Gwen LaRoka is proving to be one of Chicago's fastest up-and-coming comediennes. Her recent appearance on Chicago's ABC Channel 7's Emmy-Award winning show "Ñ Beat" is just one of the growing list of high-profile coverage that is a testament to her laughter-stimulating talent.
3) And finally, the headliner of the evening will be comedian and hypnotist, Flip Orley! Flip's show is on the cutting edge of comedy and continues to dazzle and amaze the most skeptical audience members. Flip’s show draws anxious fans to clubs across the country where they storm the stages, hoping to be among the lucky volunteers to grab a seat and become the stars of the show. Comedy chains have never had a hypnotist that has replicated the incredible crowds, amazing creativity, or quirky sense of humor that Flip brings to each and every one of his shows. Orley is adamant about not embarrassing his volunteers. He prefers his audiences to laugh with the volunteers, not at them. He takes great care in making sure that the stars of his show remember everything, and have as much fun as his audience. Orley’s brilliant comedic timing and his on-the-spot creative imagination delivered a show in Washington DC that was so funny that an audience member laughed so hard they actually needed medical attention! Obviously, this is not Flip’s goal, but it does paint a vivid picture of how hilarious this show really is. In addition to his appearance on “Entertainment Tonight” followed by his three traffic-stopping appearances on NBC’s “Today Show”, which met with rave reviews.
