Concert Information

The Spirit of Christmas (Television) Past is back when popular comedian and WGN News announcer Mike Toomey invites audiences to play along in his onstage re-creation of the seasonal specials America grew up with. A bit of fun (and funny) music, video clips, quizzes, comedy sketches and Toomey’s patented family-friendly standup are gift-wrapped with a bow on top. Guests are encouraged to wear their ugliest holiday sweaters. There may even be a surprise guest or two at the door … just like in the old days. With his sharp delivery, quick wit and identifiable style, Toomey has been a favorite at comedy clubs and special events since 1982. He has appeared in concert with such performers as Wayne Newton, Reba McEntire and Crosby, Stills & Nash, as well as on such television shows as HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, MTV’s Half-Hour Comedy Hourand A&E’s Comedy on the Road. The Chicago Tribune calls him “one of the funniest and most talented performers to ever work in Chicago.”
