Friday and Saturday September 22nd & 23rd. Stu McCallister & Nardes Osterhart in the Club!

Stu McCallister has been performing for audiences for a long time. It started when he was working as a social worker and then transitioned onto the comedy stage. Stu has participated in several comedy festivals including Trial By Laughter, Laughing Skull, The World Series of Comedy and the Oddball Comedy Fest and Laughfest where he produces the Dirty Show. Stu recorded his 1st comedy cd in Nov of 2015 and looks forward to its release.

Stu’s act can be described as a mixture of part truth, part delusion and all hilarious.

When not on stage Stu writes an advice column for Absrdcomedy.com and has his own podcast (LMNOPodcast) which can be heard on iTunes or Soundcloud. He has taken up acting and recently had a part in a commercial for Erbelli’s Pizza. Stu has been trained in improv and is not afraid to say ‘Yes, and…’

Stu has worked with crowds varying from pastor appreciation nights, college shows, Amish folk, and honky tonk bars. Stu looks forward to hitting the next stage and saying something ridiculous.

Friday and Saturday September 29th & 30th. Nick Gaza & Dave McDonald in the Club!

Nick Gaza is a funny, sick, twisted guy. His act is a mixture of hysterical true stories and things we can only hope aren't true. Nick makes fun of everyone: the audience, himself, and anyone else that gets in his sights. His comedy knows no boundaries so be warned! But if you're the kind of person who laughs at things you know you shouldn't, then Nick's comedy show is something you must see.

If Nick looks familiar to you its because you've seen him in one of his numerous television appearances, like The Drew Carey Show, Malcolm in the Middle, Becker, or you saw him at the mall touching himself in the massage chair. Nick has not only entertained here in America but he has performed all over the world including England, Ireland, Germany and for our troops in Afghanistan. If you want to laugh your ass off then come on out for one of the funniest comedy shows you'll ever see.

Friday and Saturday October 6th & 7th. Ben Moore & Jimmy Roberson in the Club!

Ben Moore began doing stand-up comedy in a small back room bar packed with drunk college students somewhere in the sleepy Midwest.

He's gone on to become a favorite on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show and continues to endlessly tour the nation's finest comedy clubs. He was a finalist in The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival and The Funniest Person in Cincinnati contest and won The Funniest Person in Lexington. He has been featured on the WGN Network and tbs.com and was a 2014 Headliner of The Limestone Comedy Festival. His first CD, "Never Coming Back", premiered in the top of the charts on iTunes; he recently made his television stand-up comedy debut on the Fuse Network's "Uproarious" and Marc Maron, on the WTF Podcast, called him a "very funny" and "talented joke-writer." We think you'll agree!

Friday and Saturday October 20th & 21st. Matt Holt & Tommy Thompson in the Club!

Matt Holt is someone to watch. Few comedians display the quick wit, razor-sharp timing, and biting delivery that he brings to the stage time and time again.

When a comic lives in the moment, no two shows are alike, and nobody takes audiences on a thrill ride like Matt Holt. With his relaxed style, he seamlessly transitions from scripted material to casual, off-the-cuff conversation with the audience, leaving them laughing, applauding, and gasping for air.

Any comic can make up jokes, but Matt prefers to derive playful material from his personal experiences. Being the youngest of eight kids, and a twice-divorced single father, Matt has no shortage of comedic inspiration in his life. Matt never misses a chance to laugh at himself, which allows him to break down that barrier between the performer and the audience. It’s this knack of his that lets the audience know who he really is. When he first steps on stage he’s “the comedian.” By the end of the show, he’s “Matt.” It’s like sitting down with an old friend and having the time of your life.

Sunday and Monday October 22nd & 23rd. Ghost Hunt

October 25th through 30th. Spirits/Seance

A week-long celebration with the Spirits of the Historic Holly Hotel!

..set amid the curious surroundings of the Historic Holly Hotel. A week-long journey into the Spirit World presented at the Holly Hotel, each evening beginning Saturday October 256h.  

We’ve known now for years that the Holly Hotel is haunted. The week prior to Halloween, we have invited a “Medium” to try to contact the spirits that loom within this admittedly haunted Victorian building. 

Our brave guests will be admitted to partake in the Seance and, once the circles are balanced, the Seance begins. (Those who are faint of heart may leave at this time.) In darkness, we will begin to contact the spirits of the Holly Hotel or the spirits associated/attached with participants in each circle. 

We make no claims to the validity of the phenomena witnessed. We ask that you bring an open mind and be prepared to witness the paranormal. Each seance will vary somewhat due to the time it takes to contact the spirits, but will generally last approximately 66 minutes. 

Special “Haunted” Dinner menu available all week, together with our regular menu. Dinner reservations are suggested for 6:00 or 6:30 P.M. 

Please call 248.634.5208 to make your reservations. Dates available are October 25, 26, 28, 29, 30. $29.00/person at 8:00 PM
