PJ Walsh

PJ Walsh has nearly twenty years of experience as a performer. Whether in a comedy club, theater, arena or war zone, PJ is known as one of the hardest working comedians behind the microphone, and for good reason. His comedy has carried him around the globe to over 40 countries from the Winter Olympic Games to 25 trips overseas entertaining U.S. Troops in places such as Iraq and Afghanistan. The New York native and Navy veteran considers himself a “Working Class Comedian” and “Humorous World Traveler” who has brought laughs to television, film, colleges, cruise ships, comedy festivals & countless comedy clubs. When not headlining comedy venues across the country, PJ is committed to raising funds and awareness for veterans and their families.

DAN MAHONEY

On one of his countless visits to the principal’s office, in one of the many Catholic schools that tolerated him, Dan was asked, “Mr. Mahoney, you’re back here again? Do you think you’re some kind of comedian?” He now lives each day to answer that question with a resounding, “YES”!  Priests can’t take a joke…FYI.

Dan Mahoney is a great comedian and a bad actor. His unique observation of life – which is rarely physical, always hysterical – has earned him industry acclaim and a loyal following. He earned the status of regional finalist of Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight, semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival and Finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival NYC Showcase.

Dan has survived drinking, dating, corporate life and cancer. He discusses these life experiences on stage, through his unique brand of steady-paced, deliberate observations. Remarkably, Dan does this all in English. Dan performs internationally and resides in Buffalo, New York

“Very funny…a celebration of the human imagination." - THE TIMES OF LONDON

From the brilliant minds of improv and comedy legend Colin Mochrie and Master Hypnotist Asad Mecci comes a brand new, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, side-splitting show. Hypnosis and Improv — two art forms that have mystified and entertained fans, sceptics and everything in between for decades worldwide – come together as two masters of their crafts unite for a totally unique comedy experience —  HYPROV:  Improv Under Hypnosis.

Twenty random volunteers from the audience will be put under hypnosis (the process of which is a show in its own right), their inhibitions evaporated and their minds no longer their own. The four or five best are left on stage when one of the world’s leading improvisers enters! Colin Mochrie (co-creator) will initiate and manipulate those under hypnosis himself and turn the show into an improv extravaganza!

In the hands of two masters, and solely crafted from the audience’s uninhibited subconscious, this will be an entirely original and completely unforgettable show, for who knows where the unconscious mind will go.  What can possibly go wrong?  Come and see for yourself!

Roald Dahl’s amazing tale is now Williamsport’s golden ticket!

That includes Charlie Bucket, whose bland life is about to burst with color and confection beyond his wildest dreams. He and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a mesmerizing joyride through a world of pure imagination. Now’s your chance to experience the wonders of Wonka like never before – get ready for Oompa-Loompas, incredible inventions, the great glass elevator, and more, more, more at this everlasting showstopper!

Get The Led Out
February 3, 2022 8:00 pm

From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical, Get The Led Out (GTLO) have captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before. Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-create the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. When you hear three guitars on the album…GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants…a high energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity.

Dubbed by the media as “The American Led Zeppelin,” Get The Led Out offers a strong focus on the early years. They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever heard in concert. GTLO also include a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and “Hey Hey What Can I Do.”

GTLO has amassed a strong national touring history, having performed at major club and PAC venues across the country. GTLO’s approach to their performance of this hallowed catalog is not unlike a classical performance. “Led Zeppelin are sort of the classical composers of the rock era,” says lead vocalist Paul Sinclair. “I believe 100 years from now they will be looked at as the Bach or Beethoven of our time. As cliché as it sounds, their music is timeless.”
