This showcase is the culmination of a stand-up comedy class offered by Scott Novotny at the center. Novotny comments, “Ever thought of trying your hand at stand-up comedy? That’s exactly what these students of all ages are preparing to do as they launch their comedy careers. Come enjoy and support the next Phyllis Diller, Rodney Dangerfield, or Jay Leno.”
A professional comedian for over 30 years, Novotny has appeared on “Comedy Central,” MTV, and “America’s Funniest People.” He is also a former company member of Dudley Riggs’ Brave New Workshop, appeared at the Minnesota State Fair and The Corn Palace, is an award-winning writer, and was the founder and artistic director of The Comedy Cabaret, the first comedy club in Minnesota. He has also taught improvisation and stand-up comedy classes for over 30 years as well. Graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College, Novotny majored in theater/speech and English, and has directed and acted in numerous theatrical and film productions.
General Admission tickets are $12 for this PG-13 show.
