Musical comedian “Weird Al” Yankovic will be bringing his Mandatory World Tour to Central Florida for three shows in Orlando, Melbourne, and Clearwater in August.
“Weird Al” Yankovic started out as a shy accordian-playing teenager sending in homemade tapes to the Dr. Demento Radio Show. Now in his fourth decade of performing he has another hit album to his credit, 2014’s Mandatory Fun, which is the first comedy album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and it nabbed him the Best Comedy Album Grammy.
Get ready for a night of fun as comedian Jim Breuer returns to Orlando for a show at Plaza Live Orlando on Thursday, March 5.
Breuer first rose to fame as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” in the 90s. His impressions were so good, and who can forget his original character of “Goat Boy”?
He then went on to appear in movies like “Half Baked,” as well as TV shows like “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” He is also a frequent guest on the Howard Stern Show. He’s so funny, Comedy Central named him one of the “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.”
I recently had the chance to experience Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Shows with the Central Florida Lady Bloggers group, and I found the experience to be so much fun!
We attended a Sunday night showing of Squire’s Inn, where it was our job to suss out who killed the former proprietor of said inn among the cast of characters.
After we checked in, we were rounded up by our “tour guide” and brought into the theater room, which doubled as Squire’s Inn. We met several of the show’s characters as we were seated at our tables.
We started our meal with a salad, crackers and cheese, and our choice of beverages – beer, wine (red or white), or soda.
The majority of the show takes place before the entrees arrive, and while the show is hilarious and witty, it’s each person’s job to pay attention to the clues being presented (some are fleeting). The show is usually 50% improv, so no performance is ever the same.
The show then breaks so we can eat and discuss what we’d seen.
