Vail Laughs

Vail Laughs is based on one simple idea:
 
Clean comedy for a good price.
Entertainment standards have definitely shifted over the years. As the world keeps moving faster, it takes more energy to get our attention in the noise. Unfortunately, much of our entertainment uses shock value and other cheap antics to get it. It’s almost a celebration of being rude and insulting, bringing the audience down right along with the entertainers.
But life is funny enough without having to be vulgar!
Think about this:
 
We drive to the gym so we can walk on a treadmill. We carry these high tech devices in our pockets, the knowledge of all the world at our fingertips and we use them to send each other videos of screaming goats. Or the irony of reaching adulthood and discovering our parents actually had a point about naps.
 
What a strange bunch of creatures we are!
 
Our award winning comedians are as committed to this ideal as we are, bringing you quality entertainment month after month and leaving behind all the vulgarity and cheap antics.  Quite simply, it’s high quality entertainment you can bring your entire family to. The most important decision you have for the evening is whether to leave the kids or the babysitter at home.

Bob Kubota began his career as a stand-up comedian while still a student of journalism at Arizona State University. Encouraged by virtually no one, he honed his particular idea of humor at “open mic nights” sponsored by various saloons and bistros throughout the Greater Phoenix area. Within two years, Bob was “on the bill” for paying customers at legitimate comedy clubs. Only then did he let his parents know that his life dream didn’t include bar exams – just bars.

His penchant for dry wit, lighthearted sarcasm and deciphering life’s ironies has led him to the majority of the contiguous 48 states as well as Alaska and Hawaii. The sly take that he has on his own ethnicity continually proves to be a popular feature of his act. In 1996 he became an international performer when he joined the United Service Organization (USO) and now tours regularly with Armed Forces Entertainment’s BATTLE COMICS (Barnhart Entertainment) providing comic relief to American military troops stationed around the globe.

His television appearances include: Last Comic Standing / The Invitationals 2014 (NBC), An Evening at the Improv (Arts & Entertainment Network), Caroline’s Comedy Hour (A & E), Half Hour Comedy Hour (MTV), Stand-Up Spotlight (VH-1), Funny is Funny (“Si” TV) & Make Me Laugh (Comedy Central). Mr. Kubota is also a world-class exponent of deceptive sleight-of-hand. Do not play cards with him. He currently resides in Phoenix,  where he is spending the rest of his days trying to teach his rescue dog to play golf.

Daniel Hanson will start out the show with “prop” humor. It’s not just what he says that’s funny, it’s what he shows the audience that will have them soaked in their seats with laughter. He has brought laughs to many over the years and has recently started writing for the “Monologue Show with Chris Wineland.” Pursuing his love of comedy, Dan has performed for a wide variety of audiences including churches, camps, clubs, concerts, and other venues.

The host for this fabulous night of comedy is Monte Benjamin. Monte Benjamin is an all around performer, comedian, and actor that’s revolutionizing comedy, Monte’s clean, high-impact, charismatic style of comedy is a breath of fresh air that will have you in tears with laughter! He been taking to the stage for more than 20 years, entertaining countless thousands of people all along the way from Tucson to his hometown of Miami, FL.

He has acted in stage plays and live productions all over the eastern part of the nation!  Monté has performed stand-up in clubs like:  Laff’s Comedy Club, Tucson AZ, Tempe Improv Tempe AZ, Stand Up Live, Phoenix AZ, Oak Leaf Comedy Corner, Jacksonville FL, and New York Comedy Club.

Stories for the Season 

An Evening of

Dance and Mime Theatre

Tuesday, Oct 29, 2019 – 7:00 pm

Wednesday, Oct 30, 2019 – 7:00 pm

 


Mika Deslongchamps and Rick Wamer join forces to create a delightfully spirited performance of Dance Theatre and Mime for the Season of All Hallows Eve at the Vail Theatre of the Arts in Tucson, October 29 and 30, 2019, at 7:00 pm each evening.

Mika brings her gift of dance and theatre since her days of dancing as a child, and Rick Wamer brings his iconic mime artistry to this all ages performance.

The evening will feature Mika Deslongchamps with an ensemble cast of nine dancers in several newly devised pieces such as DANCE MACABRE, a dance about how the jack-o-lantern fits in with modern society and walks the line between its scary history and desire for light, INFERNA, a suite of dance solos, and RAVEN, a piece intertwining dance and mime that interprets the famed Edgar Allan Poe poem, that will have Rick joining the ensemble.

Vail audiences that have seen Rick Wamer perform in Ballet Rincon’s annual Nutcracker have been asking to see his theatrical mime work for some time and they’re in for a treat. His work is not what American audiences are used to seeing, especially when it comes to mime. Hell reprise his solo piece commissioned by the Southern Arizona Symphony Orchestra, THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE, to the Paul Dukas score that most people know from the Disney film, FANTASIA.  In the piece he plays the Sorcerer, the Apprentice, and, the Broom.  A rigorous score is matched by a high energy performance.

Rick will also perform his rendition of local artist Grant Bashore’s memorable work DRACULA, and present a Tucson debut of THE BALLOON MAN’S NIGHTMARE, with Mika’s ensemble performing with Rick as a balloon vendor selling his wares in a park that is not what it appears to be.  The famed Marcel Marceau and long-time mentor of Rick Wamer, once spoke of Wamer’s performance abilities as, an impressive depth of interpretation and heart.

Tickets are limited for this two-night only special event performance.  Come and enjoy a hallowed evening sharing this unique story telling through the beauty of movement that speaks worlds of meaning.
