Sips & Giggles Comedy Show Brings Three Great Comedians to Traverse City

The Sips & Giggles Comedy Show is back! The event, which was first held in April 2017, was a huge success and will continue on a regular basis throughout the year. The next Sips & Giggles is scheduled for Saturday, October 21 at the Leelanau Studios. The event is hosted by the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail.

Attendees can join the laid back and hilariously fun evening of wine and comedy. The evening kicks off with a pre-show happy hour from 6 to 8 pm featuring delicious local wine from Shady Lane Cellars, Chateau Fontaine, Chateau de Leelanau Tractor Pull Hard Ciders, brews from Right Brain Brewery and snacks available for purchase.

Presented by Uncorrect Comedy, the Comedy Show starts at 8 pm and will have guests in side-splitting stitches as Midwest funnyman Geoff Tate entertains you with his hilarious brand of humor, along with special guest comedian Jeff Horste (Comedy Central and Fox TV’s Laughs) and local comic Joshua Paul (Winner of Natives Got Talent).

About Geoff

When he’s not disputing charges for half-watched movies or binging on Cheers re-runs, this comical Cincinnatian is touring with comedian, actor and producer Doug Benson and stand-up comedian and author Doug Stanhope.
Tate has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, and is a regular on Doug Loves Movies, as well as Getting Doug with High. He has performed at music and comedy festivals like Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, and he’s the host of the popular geofftate’s MSHD PODCASTO, where he explores topical Cheers-related issues, gets his dad to try things, talks to people he graduated with, forces Emma Arnold to host her own show and just has a good time.

About Jeff

Jeff Horste would never describe himself as a dynamo. Mainly because nobody talks like that in real life and he’s not even sure what that means. Jeff likes to cover lighthearted topics such as book bags, candy corn, and racial inequality. His comedic ability is blessed by whatever God you believe in, so as to not offend you. Jeff was hand picked to showcase his comedic talents on Comedy Central’s “Kevin Hart Presents: Hart Of The City” and has also appeared on the Fox TV show “Laughs”. Having performed in some of the top clubs in the country, Jeff has worked with comedians such as Demetri Martin, Mike Epps, and Michael Ian Black. Jeff has also recently performed in the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, the Boston Comedy Festival, and the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival. Jeff possesses the rare versatility to connect with diverse audiences. Which means he performs in theaters, living rooms, nudist colonies, and as the token white man.
