Paradise Center for the Arts Executive Director Kristin Twitchell will be in studio for today's KDHL AM Minnesota program.  I believe a couple comedians will be joining us to talk about an event this Saturday showcasing Minnesota comedians.  Six new and emerging Minnesota comedians will provide a night of great laughs this Saturday, January 12th at the Paradise.

Each comedian will perform a 15 minute set.  The evening will be hosted by Faribault comedian Nathan Smesrud.  Other comedians are Andrew Wegleitner, Carolyn Blomberg, Elise Cole, Tommy Bayer, Ahmed Khalaf and Phil Kolas.  The Paradise emphasizes, adult content and language will be part of this show.

All general admission tickets are $10.  Show begins 7:30 p.m.

Twitchell will also give details about the Pink Floyd show by Jonny James and the Hall of Fames, January 18 at 7:30 p.m.  The show sold out back-to-back peformances at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre.  The Paradise website description is, "Hear Dark Side of the Moon in it's entirety as a classic Judy Garland movie plays in the background, as well as favorite selections from,"The Wall" and "Wish You Were Here."

"It promises to be a spooky, psychedelic evening of killer guitars and crazy synths.  Floyd and classic rock music fans will absolutely love this premier tribute!"

Friday, January 25 The Danger Committee will be at the Paradise Center for the Arts.  The Twin Cities trio of jugglers were featured on America's Got Talent.

Tickets are selling fast for the Buddy Holly 60th Anniversary Show Saturday, February 2 at 7:30 p.m.
