One of America’s leading stand-up comedians, performing worldwide and entertaining audiences of all ages, Jeff Nease leaves ‘em laughing. After becoming a finalist in New York’s National Lampoon’s Comedy Play-Offs, audiences began to take notice of Jeff’s unique comedy style. Not only was Jeff thriving as a stand-up comedian, he also founded ‘The Improvables’, an improvisational group that gave his act the spontaneous edge audiences love. Soon Jeff was teaching improv to professional groups and corporate officers. In addition to regularly headlining in Las Vegas and performing across the United States and
legends as Jim Carrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Tim Allen, as well as opening concerts for such groups as The Temptations.
Jeff Nease will perform July 7 through August 6.
The Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team is a professional gymnastics troupe consisting of talented young men and boys from the Chicagoland area. Their performance includes amazing
acrobatic stunts and tricks inside twirling jump ropes, catapulting off mini trampolines and thundering tumbling routines with impeccable timing. Founded in 1999 by professional gymnast Tim Shaw, these young inner city youth are taught discipline, respect, hard work, integrity and teamwork. Members must maintain a “C” average in school, are not
allowed to drop out of school, associate with gangs, drugs, alcohol or tobacco. Through Tim’s positive impact, many kids have not only become professional polished gymnasts, but turned their lives around in the process.
The Chicago Boyz will perform August 7 through September 6.
Justin Fisk, TRMF Marketing Director comments, “Our returning variety act, Cirque Zuma Zuma, was so overwhelming well received by attendees in the Amphitheatre and on social media last year that we had to bring them back – attendees told us we had to!
“Additionally,” he continues, “over 91% of guests surveyed after last year’s show gave our comedian act their highest, or second highest rating, so we are really excited to see this year’s comic, Jeff Nease, get our guests laughing.”
Medora Musical Amphitheatre Manager, Kinley Slauter adds, “Every year we try to book a fun mix of variety acts that complement the entertainment of the Medora Musical really well, and this year I think attendees will really see and enjoy that mix.”
The individual variety acts perform during the second half of the Medora Musical program, every night throughout the season. The 2014 Medora Musical runs every night at 7:30pm MDT from June 6 to September 6.
