An Evening with Mark Russell
Mark Russell has always followed the old newsman's adage: "As they say, 'I don't make the news. I just report it.' And in my case, I don't even make the jokes. I just report them as they masquerade as news." Decades before the political satire of comics such as Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, Mark Russell was television's primary source for clever roastings of Washington D.C. antics. Like the long lost son of Mark Twain and Cole Porter, Russell fed the latest headlines to his star-spangled piano and turned out jaunty ditties that skewered every administration in his Mark Russell Comedy Specials, which ran four times a year on PBS from 1975–2004. Now back from a short-lived retirement, Mark and his signature bow tie take on the government's latest foibles in a side-splitting showcase of acerbic wit and engaging melodies.

“this groupon was awesome, as was the concert; 1/2 price off with no worries at all; just walked straight up to the ticket counter, showed them my groupon receipt and was handed to tickets.....I'd definitely do it again and hope to be able to get future concert tickets this same way!”
