“What’s up with that Dora the Explorer,” Oskay read. “She’s smart enough to speak two languages but needs my help counting to 10.”
Gardner said all three featured comics this weekend are awesome.
And the lineup at Laugh House becomes more star-studded each week as Gardner brings in not only household names, but big names.
Wildman hillbilly comic Donnie Baker, of Bob & Tom fame, arrives next weekend. And Steve-O of “Jackass” fame comes to town at the end of the month. No one’s quite sure what’s going to happen when he’s here.
As Gardner was launching his club on Wednesday, Steve-O tweeted that’d he’d just filmed a prank that got him handcuffed by the Los Angeles Police Department.
Gardner has said that everyone’s sure to love him, though. Gardner considers him a personal friend and says he’s the nicest guy. Steve-O is the kind of performer who will stay at the club until the last person leaves, posing for photos with everyone, Gardner said.
Chris Bowers, who owns Morty’s Comedy Joint in Indianapolis, said Gardner has the right idea with this comedy club in Kokomo.
“I thought it was the perfect move for Mike,” he said. “[This club] will really blossom with him in charge.”
