Veteran comedians and fellow Baby Boomers, Jan McInnis and Kent Rader have joined together to create The Baby Boomer Comedy Show: Clean Comedy for People Born Before Seat Belts, Safety Helmets, and Face Book.

On Saturday, Feb. 20, their 90-minute theater event comes to the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts (205 Main St., Menomonie) at 7:30 p.m. Filled with clean humor, the comic duo tackles topics the boomer generation can relate to — family, kids, work, do-it-yourself projects, dieting, aging, grandchildren.

Jan was featured in the Wall Street Journal as one of the top convention comedians whose act is clean, and in the Washington Post in a challenge from Gene Weingarten to write clean punch lines to his suggestive set-ups.

A former hospital CFO with a sense of humor, Kent won the Branson Comedy Festival and has been performing his clean comedy act to packed convention and theater crowds across the country.

Tickets are $20/adults, $18/students and seniors. Call 715-235-0001, ext. 100; online at www.mabeltainter.org; or visit the box office Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. or one hour before the show.

I have heard a lot about this Comedy Show but I have not found any video of this comedy show. I am searching some research paper help because this is the end of the semester and I want to submit my research proposal by the end of this month. I have visited number of website for this purpose.


I have watched both the comedian s play in a little show organised by fore university . Jan and Kent have a very good chemistry and that works out very well in their jokes. Their directiona nd casts are also top notch. It would nice to watch them play again. louvre guided tour
