Mark Lundholm - Recovery Comedy
Clean and sober since 1988, Mark Lundholm is a former criminal, mental patient, homeless wino, resident in a halfway house who started poking fun at the insanity his life had become. This process continued and gained momentum, and in a short time an incredibly talented and energetic entertainer emerged. Beginning with a successful stand-up comedy career through 50 states and 10 foreign countries, this comic's "drank there, used that" style of humor is now so much more than a comedy show. The performance given by Mark Lundholm is a thought-provoking journey through a man's decline and his subsequent ascension. Mark details his battles with addiction in a clever manner that is sometimes shocking, often heartwarming, and unceasingly honest.
Admission: adults $20, seniors $19, youth $15
