An Evening With Mark Russell
Sunday, October 16 at 7pm, Tickets: $55/$49
Piano-playing political satirist Mark Russell comes to The Sunrise Theatre with material ripped from today’s headlines. Known for skewering Democrats and Republicans alike, Russell’s unique brand of comedy earned him the Mark Twain Award for political comedy and has made him a popular favorite on PBS. Long before Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert, there was Mark Russell, daring to joke and sing of the often absurd political process.
The unquestioned master of musical-political satire, Mark Russell plumbs the absurdities of today’s political headlines to deliver his hilarious, star-spangled brand of comedy. As he puts it, “I started at the bottom and managed to work my way down.” He began knowing little about politics, but was an immediate hit because he could find humor in anything. You don’t want to miss this show right before the election!
“Mark was a true delight to work with. He put on a fun show for a very healthy crowd, and afterwards stayed at the reception for over 90 minutes regaling our sponsors and supporters with still more anecdotes.”
