WMBD’s Greg Batton hosts the second installment of a new comedy series in Peoria Heights at the beautiful Betty Jayne Brimmer Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, October 18, at 7pm. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door, with doors opening at 6:15pm.

This month, Greg Batton (The Greg and Dan Show) welcomes:

Matt Blind Stein, West Peoria native and America’s roommate, has been crisscrossing the country making people laugh, relate and think. From Colorado to the Carolinas, Wisconsin to Florida, this showered Gypsy has been both fulfilling and shattering stereotypes. With his witty word play and observational humor, Blind Stein tells tales of his travels and life encounters. Call it insight, call it hindsight, he’s got almost no sight but you will call it funny.

Michelle DeSutter started comedy 6 years ago at a club she bartended in for years. She says all of the things that none of us our thinking and do not want to say. Her comedy can get dark, but she always brings it back to the light.

Matt Colgan ’s ridiculous outlook on life through the eyes of a stay at home dad may make you wonder if parenting is for you or just not for him. His perception of animals, including his children, will give you a new view of the world.

The show kicks off at 7pm and wraps up around 9pm, but stick around for drinks with the comics until 10!

NOTE: this event is 21+. There could possibly be adult language and/or themes.

Live comedy in a cool place...the Betty Jayne!
