TWO SHOWS: Friday\, Aug ust 14 at 10 p.m. & Saturday\, August 15 at 10 p.m.

\n

Not All CopsOfficer Scott Baker hosts a public relations meeting at the l ocal YMCA in an attempt to justify the “occasional abuse of power” by the department. He showcases the “Human Behind The Uniform” through personal m onologues\, audience participation\, and the analysis of national headline s. Officer Baker hopes to leave the citizens of Carlyle agreeing that Not All Cops Are Bad!

\n

George McAuliffe’s one-man show\, Not All Cops A re Bad!\, takes on current events\, turns them upside down and shakes out insane personal stories from a cop that is in over his head. George combin es satire\, current events and George’s unique imagination to give an equi table take on this hot button issue. Police brutality is running rampant i n the fictitious town of Carlyle.

JonLov
 itz-BannerFor the last twenty years\, Jon Lovitz has been one of the best known comedians in the universe…well\, acc ording to his cats.

\n

For the first ten years of his career\, he did plays in high school\, earned a B.A. in Drama at the University of Califo rnia\, Irvine and studied acting with Tony Barr at the Film Actors Worksho p.

\n

After an unfruitful year in New York\, he returned to Los Angel es and at the advice of Tony Barr\, he began concentrating solely on comed y. He began taking classes at the famous improve comedy group\, “The Groun dlings” in 1982. A year later\, after being accepted into “The Sunday Comp any”\, Jon got his first job as an actor for two weeks on the television s how “The Paper Chase: the Second Year”. Thinking he was on his way\, he pr omptly quit his job at the clothing store…and became a messenger. The next three years – nothing!!! Then\, in September of 1984\, he was accepted in to the main company at the Groundlings.

\n

On March 28\, 1985 the Gro undlings appeared on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson”. It was here Jo n premiered his character “Tommy Flanagan of Pathological Liars Anonymous” . This kicked off a series of events\, including getting an agent\, a movi e (“Last Resort”) and a series (“Foley Square”) on the same day\, a voice over for a cartoon (“The Brave Little Toaster”) and the big break of his c areer (with the recommendations of Larraine Newman and Charles Grodin) “Sa turday Night Live”…all this by September of 1985.

\n

He has not stopp ed working since. He was nominated for an Emmy his first two years on Satu rday Night Live. He became known for many characters\, including “Tommy Fl anagan of Pathological Liars Anonymous” (“Yeah\, that’s the ticket!”)\, “M aster Thespian”\, “Hannukuh Harry” and “the Devil”. He has appeared in ove r thirty movies\, including “Big”\, “A League of Their Own”\, “The Wedding Singer”\, “High School High”\, “Small Time Crooks”\, and “Rat Race”. He h as worked with some of the best comedy directors\, including Penny Marshal l\, Rob Reiner\, Jerry Zucker\, and the man who influenced Jon to be a com edian in the first place (when Jon was 13)\, Woddy Allen. He has also work ed with such filmmakers as Todd Solonz (in “Happiness”) and Richard Kelly (in “Southland Tales”).

\n

Jon has become well known for his distinct ive voice. He was the lead voice of the character “Jay Sherman” in the acc laimed cult cartoon series\, “The Critic” and has done voice overs for man y other animated features (“American Tale: Fievel Goes West”\, “Cats and D ogs”\, “Eight Crazy Nights”\, etc.) He has also worked on “The Simpsons” m any times\, including creating the character of Marge Simpson’s boyfriend\ , “Artie Ziff” (which sounds suspiciously like Jay Sherman).

\n

He ha s appeared on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre in Neil Simon’s play “The Dinner Party”\, taking over the lead role from Henry Winkler. He has sung (yes\, he can sing!) at Carnegie Hall three times (including “Great Perfor mances: Ira Gershwin at 100: A Celebration at Carnegie Hall) and sung the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium and the U.S. Open. And he sung with Engl ish rock star\, Robbie Williams at the Royal Alpert Hall and appears on hi s album\, “Swing While You’re Winning!”

\n

He was the first famous gu est star on the hit show “Friends” and guest starred on “Seinfeld” the sam e week. In 2005 he guest starred three times on the hit show “Las Vegas” i n a recurring role. In 2006\, he was offered (and accepted) a recurring ro le on the hit show “Two and a Half Men”\, playing Charlie Sheen’s nemesis\ , Archie Baldwin.

\n

Two years ago\, he pursued his dream of becoming a stand-up comedian. He is one of few performers to start as an actor and then become a stand up and is now successfully headlining in nightclubs\, theatres\, and casinos across the country (a BIG THANK YOU TO DANA CARVEY !!!!)

\n

“I’ve had a great career. I’ve been very fortunate and I wou ld be remiss not to give credit to my great teachers\, Ashley Carr\, Rober t Cohen\, Stuart Duckworth\, Bill Needles\, Tony Barr\, Warren Robertson\, Randy Bennett\, and Phyliss Katz.”

\n

In 2006 he will appear in four feature films: Mel Brook’s “The Producers: The Musical”\, Adam Sandler’s “The Benchwarmers”\, Richard Kelly’s “Southland Tales” and Amy Heckerling’ s “I Could Be Your Woman” (where he plays Michelle Pfeiffer’s ex-husband… and Jon left her\, just so you know!)

John-Waters-ChristmasA JOHN WATERS CHRI STMAS

\n

Thursday\, December 03\, 2015 @ 8:00 PM
\n

\n
\n

John Waters (Pink Flamingos\, Hairspray\, A Dirty Shame) will perform an unforgettable night of holiday mischief with his critically acclaimed one man show\, A John Waters Christmas< /em>\, on December 3rd at The Sheldon. Waters pokes fun at the holiday sea son with adult-appropriate humor\, effectively “putting the X in Xmas\,” d eveloping a show for the open minded and slightly left-of-center audience.

\n

The cult classic\, Baltimore-born filmmaker began his Hollywood s uccess with now Broadway classic\, Hairspray\, in 1988. Claiming hi s playful nicknames “Pope of Trash” and “Prince of Puke\,” he maintains hi s image through his filmmaking and his personal presentation. Regarded as a shocking entertainer\, John Waters carefully chooses his material and ex ploits it through a dirty lens. “It’s my obsession with Christmas: what I want for Christmas\, what you should want\, how to handle every holiday di saster\,” Waters says. His rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his religious fana ticism for Santa Claus\, and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories. Delving into his passion for lunatic exploitation Christmas movi es and the unhealthy urge to remake all his own films into seasonal childr en’s classics\, “The Pope of Trash” will give you aJoyeux Noel like no other.

\n

Show contains adult themes and is not recommended f or minors.
