In their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest 4 Times the Fun North American tour, the Globetrotters will add new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet farther than the official 3-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian.
Combining professional players and proficient chefs, Murry's Dinner Playhouse has been a premier venue to witness edible dramatics for more than 40 years. Theater-going tongues can resolve hungry soliloquies in style with the buffet, which pairs proteins including chicken and freshly carved roast beef with an assortment of vegetable and dessert options. The dinner buffet also includes one nonalcoholic beverage. While dining, feast your eyes on Room Service, a classic American farce that brings the madcap energy of Golden Age Broadway to the halls and corridors of the White Way Hotel. During the show, audiences can root for the scheming protagonist while marveling at the immobile accuracy of the set's trained furniture impersonators.
Setting the stage for hilarity on shows such as Comedy Central's Insomniac, and Fox's Show Me the Funny, the Loony Bin Comedy Club presents a mirth-filled environment where patrons can enjoy good service and creative drink concoctions amid impressive feats of farce. Serving as a stepping stone to up-and-coming comedy kings, the club's fluorescent backdrop features a new comedian every week, and has welcomed guffaw greats such as Jeff Foxworthy, Tommy Chong, Dave Attell, and a marmoset dressed as Woody Allen. Upcoming performers include Larry Reeb (April 27–30), known for his politically incorrect alter ego "Uncle Lar," and Arkansas native Tim Gaither (May 4–7), who draws upon his dysfunctional upbringing to create his chortle-inducing characters on command.
