In the intimate showroom of the Shimmer Cabaret, two comedians will take the stage to rile audiences with laughter during the Icons of Comedy Series. Hal Sparks performs July 27–31 with a bevy of quick-witted quips and sidesplitting observations. Known for his five seasons as Michael Novotny on the Showtime program Queer as Folk, Sparks initially honed his humor prowess and sharpened his comedy swords at Chicago's renowned Second City, which denies any knowledge of the first city's whereabouts. Since then, he's appeared in a variety of movies and TV shows, and has been a guest on talk shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live, Larry King Live, and The Tonight Show.
Jimmy Shubert will grace the chuckle-making stage at the Shimmer Cabaret August 3–7 and 24–28 with his sharp brand of caustic commentary. Known for his recurring role on The King of Queens and countless appearances on film and Comedy Central, Jimmy’s blue-collar, Archie Bunkeresque musings reflect the foibles of the everyman as he leads the proletariat in an anecdotal war against the pants requirements at all-you-can-eat buffets.
