I have always said and written that NW Indiana is dripping in talent. The Arts are here. We just need someone, everyone, pulling it together. Tom Byelick and Michele Gonzalez Piskol have the passion that makes NW Indiana feel special, because they are special people. Tonight I spent time watching them. Not only were they the most excellent hosts you could have, there passion to orchestrate an evening like this drives deep with them. They will stop and talk to you at any time. They go out of their way to assist us in anything we want. They reach out to everywhere to give a NW Indiana venue to comedians. They support local business and local art which includes our musical talents like Nomad Planets.
Thank you Tom and Michelle for an enjoyable evening. Please keep up the good work. Promote comedy. Promote NW Indiana as the place to be once again. Promote our local Artists that are dripping in this talent. Please keep supporting comedy, as we will keep supporting you.
Here are some photographs from the evening, starting with the outside of this beautiful Hoosier Theatre in downtown Whiting Indiana.
This theater was once the cross roads to Chicago, hosting entertainers like W.C. Fields, Amos & Andy, and the Three Stooges (why certainly whoop whoop whoop whoop). As you read their website you find that James Cagney sold war bonds outside the theater. As of recent, the theater shows first time movie runs, and of course, The Tomfoolery Fun Club.
