FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Throw a couple of dummies together, toss in a few puppets and add several comedians and you've got West Virginia University at Parkersburg's Sept. 27th Backdoor Comedy Club lineup.
The 8 p.m. show will be held in the college's multi-purpose room. It will feature Jamie Lissow who claims he does comedy until he "...can save up enough money to be a waiter" and Lynn Trefzger who features dummies, puppets and unsuspecting audience members in her routine.
Lissow shares his diverse college experiences and unique family upbringing with audiences across the country. He has been seen on Comedy Central and has been a contributing writer for The Tonight Show. He has worked with such performers as Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Kevin James, Bill Maher and Gary Shandling. He is described as "the best writer since Seinfeld" and "Adam Sandler without the guitar."
Ventriloquist of the year in 1993-95, Trefzger combines exceptional vocal skills with amazing figure manipulation to create a fascinating comedy act. Dummies, puppets, inanimate objects and unsuspecting bystanders become part of a wild world that she and her comical partners create.
Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $4 for the general public and are available in the college business office. WVU Parkersburg students, faculty and staff can purchase advance tickets at $2. All tickets at the door are $4. Additional information is available by contacting Tom Yencha, director of student activities, at 424-8309.
