Take time to laugh

A Holiday Comedy Show is set for Saturday, November 20 at 8 p.m. at Broadway Ballroom in Alexandria. It will feature comedians Alex Jackson, Jeff Bergs, Jodie Maruska, Jason Schommer and Rox Tarrant.

Heat up your holiday season with a comedy show featuring one of Minnesota's hottest headliners - Alex Jackson. Jackson is a 20-year comedy veteran, Showtime favorite and Minneapolis fire chief. He has fine-tuned the art of crowd rap to engage the audience. He sheds light on raising two teenage sons, his 25 years as a fireman, and not letting stress get the best of you.

Alexandria comedian Jeff Bergs will bring to life some impressions that have garnered him praise as one of the Midwest's best impressionists and comedians.

Rounding out the line-up are Maruska and Schommer. Both are accomplished stand-up comedians. Maruska has performed in shows across the country and has been called "one of Minnesota's funniest women" by the TC Reader.

Schommer recently returned from Las Vegas, where he performed with Louie Anderson.

Rox Tarrant, a graduate of Jefferson High School in Alexandria, will host the show in her style that has been entertaining audiences for 15 years.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. They are on sale now at Garden Center Lanes in Alexandria. For information, call (320) 763-6565.
