Theo Von Returns for Jokers Wild
By Tourism Industry Partner
Shawnee, OK- If laughter is the best medicine, then the cure may be found at FireLake Grand on Friday, February 18th at 8 pm. Jokers Wild Night will feature comedian Theo Von who has appeared on Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central’s ‘Reality Bites Back’, and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham.
A native of Louisiana, Theo Von says that he began perfecting his craft by doing stand up for stuffed animals and then progressed to performing for a pet fish. Unfortunately, the fish died, but his love of comedy lived. He has been performing stand-up comedy for the last six years. His comedy centers around his dysfunctional family and making fun of his life.
Von lists his influences as “George Carlin, Jesus, Jamie Lisso, Chris Rock, Roy Orbison, Muddy Waters, David/Goliath, Dan Levy, Steve Hoffstetter, Josh Kelley, Scott Satchfield, Dov Davidoff, Carol O'Connor, The Hunt, his brother, Big B, and other quality individuals/animals.”
With those influences, Theo Von will surely have the audience laughing as he puts a hilarious spin on the people and events in his life. So plan now to tickle your funny bone! Mark your calendar for February 19th and purchase your tickets at the FireLake Grand Casino Gift Shop or by calling 405-96-GRAND. Tickets are only $10.
