An Evening of Laughter & Memories of Sinatra featuring Tom Dreesen
Warning: contains a minor instance of profanity and major alimony
“A good comedian can make you laugh for an hour and a half. A great comedian can make you laugh and cry in that same hour and a half. Be prepared to do just that,” says Rick Kogan of Chicago Tribune about the force that is Tom Dreesen. He’s the kind of comedian they don’t make anymore: sharp, salty, suave, and gutsy. Along with longtime comedy partner Tim Reid (later of WKRP in Cincinnati fame), the comedy team of Tim & Tom was the first biracial standup duo ever in the US. From there, Tom became a favorite of Johnny Carson and a Tonight Show regular before his comic chops caught the attention of Frank Sinatra, who gave Tom the gig of a lifetime as his opening act.
In his one-man show, An Evening of Laughter & Memories of Sinatra, Dreesen regales audiences with juicy tales of his time spent with Ol’ Blue Eyes in a string of performances benefiting the 100 Club of DuPage County. As Dennis McCarthy of the Los Angeles Daily News raves, “Only a guy who traveled with Sinatra for 14 years and stood in the wings watching him work his magic night after night to packed houses could pull off a show like this.”
The Hundred Club of DuPage County
Law-enforcement officers and firefighters protect families, but when they can no longer take care of their own The Hundred Club Of DuPage County steps in to help. When police officers and firefighters are injured or lost while putting their lives on the line, the private, non-profit organization assists their grieving families. Within 24 hours, representatives of the organization are there to express sympathy and condolences, and to offer financial assistance for immediate needs. But they don’t stop there. They also follow up with offers of further help, and fund scholarships for the children and spouses in an endless effort to honor the men and women who serve and protect.
