Comedian Tim Cavanagh comes to Thrasher

 Comedian Tim Cavanagh comes to Thrasher


Tim Cavanagh is returning to the historic Thrasher Opera House this year for not one, but two evenings of sidesplitting clever humor!  The gifted comedian will grace the stage and summon the audience for some old-fashioned, laid-back fun and an all-in-all good time.  Thanks to the generous sponsorship from Kaye and John Zwiacher and PGI, Inc., Cavanagh will bring a raucous of laughter to the Opera House on Sept. 6 and 7, at 7:30 p.m.


On that Friday and Saturday, you can see the live version of the “master of word play,” stated by Dr. Demento from “Dr. Demento’s Radio Show,” on which Tim Cavanagh once featured his comical musical hit, “I Wanna Kiss Her (But She Won’t Let Me).”


Another song on Cavanagh’s repertoire includes “99 Dead Baboons,” which provides a little insight into the comical demeanor of the humorist.  For 15 years, Cavanagh has been performing at major comedy clubs and universities across the U.S. and has also been a regular guest on many drive-time radio shows.  “The One Minute Song,” for example, is a regular segment on “The Bob and Tom Show,” which is featured on over 100 markets.  WLUP.FM (Chicago), WKQI (Detroit), BIG 105 (New York) and WDVE (Pittsburgh) also featured the appearance of Tim Cavanagh.


And don’t worry about your kids; they can enjoy the show as much as the parents without the threat of corruption.  Chicago Magazine took pride in saying that Cavanagh is “a wonderful original whose songs poke fun and yet embrace people—a real relief from the sexist ploys many stand-ups believe they must engage in….”  So you can sit back and enjoy the humor and know that Cavanagh is gifted with wit and not creative crudeness.      


The artist recently released a CD featuring many segments from his acts on “The Bob and Tom Show” entitled The One Minute Song, Volume 1 (2000).  Another CD, Sounds Like Fun! (1997), debuted Cavanagh’s comedy acts.  Tim Cavanagh can also be recognized from appearances on local and national television stations, including “Stand-Up Stand-Up” on Comedy Central and “The Showtime Comedy Club Network” on Showtime.  His gift for comedy has definitely been recognized, and you can see why for yourself on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 6 and 7. 


Tickets for the show are priced at $15 and are available at the Thrasher Opera House office, Knowledge Emporium, the Green Lake State Bank and Ripon Drug.  For more information, you can call the Opera House office at 920/294-4279 or by checking the websites or
