"Special Show"

Friday and Saturday
Sept 23rd - 24th


Bryan McCree and Chris Young in the Club!

Bryan McCree – Don’t forget the name because you’ll be screaming it in the morning!

This comedic act will astound you with his astute observations on life which are on the edge and simply hilarious. Bryan’s life is the epitome of diversity. Caught between two worlds, one black, one white. The two worlds collide in a hilarious romp of attempting to decipher black slang, and trying to fit in with white family members and neighbors. Their antics are brought to life right before your eyes.

Born into a show business family performing is in his genes. His Father a jazz virtuoso, his Great Aunt a Broadway legend, his Mother the best damn cosmetology instructor ever to wear a smock. Legend has it that she was responsible for giving her son the first jherri curl in american history, but that’s a whole other story.

Bryan is a nationally known comedian, seen on Mad TV, Comedy Central and most recently Comic’s Unleashed with Byron Allen. In 2006 Bryan earned honors as a best of NBC’s Stand UP For Diversity finals. (One of ten handpicked comedians from all over the country) He has shared the stage with the likes of Sinbad, George Wallace, and the Isley Brothers. He has a natural charm on stage, and his infectious giggle often incites laughter among the masses. His natural acting talent shows through in his act, as he plays his funniest character: Himself.

His sarcastic delivery and sharp wit will have you rolling with laughter one minute and asking yourself "did he really just say that?" the next. A Chicago native, Brian got his start opening for great comedians like: Dave Chappelle, Carlos Mencia, Chelsea Handler, Bill Burr, Damon Wayons, and others who will undoubtedly be offended now that they weren't mentioned. A veteran of countless comedy festivals and headliner of great comedy rooms all over the country,  Brian is set to soon be a household name. Don't miss the chance to see this talented man!

Comedy Club

October 14th - 15th

Matt Holt and Jimmy Robertson 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. Having just released his debut album I’m in Show Business! Matt is busier than ever touring the country and loving every minute of it. When he’s not performing at clubs, colleges, and casinos, he can be heard on SIRIUS/XM Satellite radio or co-hosting the wildly popular podcast, The Interweb Podshow. If you want to see a show unlike any you’ve ever seen, watch Matt Holt. If you want to see another one, watch him again.

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 26th through Halloween,” October 31st.

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 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31. $29.00/person at 8:00 PM
