New Year's Eve Comedy with Mary Rowles

7 PM - 10 PM

Mary Rowles proves to be one of the most original comediennes performing today. This knock-out, stand-out comedienne is a combination of Lily Tomlin, Andrea Martin and Celine Dion all rolled into one! Her broad spectrum of talent, combined with over twenty years of experience, is a perfect match for a variety of venues including corporate events, conventions, colleges and theatres. Recognized as a smashing talent, Mary Rowles is one of the most sought after female comedienne in the Midwest. Playing to standing ovations from coast to coast, her heartwarming characters, side splitting stand-up comedy, and hilariously inspired songs create a contagious laughter that begins the moment she walks on stage and lasts for weeks. She is known for: her spot on characters... (Aunt Helen and Butch Swanson are all time audience favorites). She has written original songs and the occasional song parodies. Mary has also  studied improv at Dudley Riggs Theatre and The Huge Theatre, both in Minneapolis, also performed with Theatre Sportz improv troupe. She was nominated twice for "Campus Entertainer of the Year" through NACA (National Association of Campus Actives.... and has toured the country playing comedy clubs, colleges and corporations and boldly says, "I  love love love what I do!!!

Her comedy is fresh, clean and clever. The comments I love hearing after a show from audiences are:

"You're hilarious and you didn't even swear!"  "I have an Aunt just like your Aunt Helen character!"

"Thank you for making me laugh so hard. I really needed it."

Prepare for the new year by sharing a drink and conversation with  friends in the Mabel Tainter Public Room, while  listening to the melodic tunes of guitarist Mike Shay. Then head up to the beautiful historic Mabel Tainter theater and delight in the comical observations about life, relationships, and family shared by veteran comedian Mary Rowles.  $20
