Comedy Night - Mark Poolos

Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. To start his career, he co-starred in two independent films "Attack of the Killer Snow Cone Zombies" and "Joanie Loves Furbies". After his performances in those two films there wasn't a person who didn't know his name. He did more films, some commercials and some theater but it wasn't enough. Mark needed that instant connection. So he began his stand-up comedy career. Mark is 6'7" and 350, technically a giant but a bumbling one. In Mark's routine he weaves real stories about life as a jolly giant and a very unique point of view at life to create his own style of comedy. Mark is a true road dog performing in 44 states and 5 provinces in Canada. Mark has been on WGN America, XM/Sirus Satellite radio, The Bob and Tom Show, and won the 2011 Comcast Trial by Laughter. Mark will soon release his third full-length comedy album.

Comedy Night - Jim McCue

A mixture of witty “A-list material” and his ability to work off-script has earned Jim McCue the title “Boston’s King of Crowd Work!” It’s not only his height of six foot six that makes Jim stand head and shoulders above club comedians of the “stick-to-the-script” variety. Jim blends thought-provoking material and uncanny improv skills with a style that encourages audience participation. No two shows are ever the same!

Jim has been featured on Comedy Central, Comcast Comedy Spotlight, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” and “Roughing It” on NESN in his native New England. Jim also founded and currently runs The Boston Comedy Festival. He works in top comedy clubs in Boston, Las Vegas, New York, Dublin, Montreal and Edinburgh.

Since 1999 Jim has also entertained U.S. troops at more than 100 bases around the world. An account of his experiences performing for the troops has recently been published in Embedded Comedian,  which Jim describes as a “field manual for comedians in a war zone.”

With his unique act, Jim keeps the audience on its toes. Volleying between set material and working the crowd, Jim cracks jokes with amazing timing and whip-like precision. A unique blend that is sure to leave the audience roaring with laughter!

Comedy Night - John Knight

An everyman storyteller with a signature mocking cynicism and a deadpan cutting edge, John is a great person to spend a fun-filled evening with. Knight has become one of the favorite comedy acts on the East Coast and has opened for Leon Redbone, Steven Wright and Howie Mandel. He has also appeared on Star Search, Showtime Comedy Club Network and A&E’s Comedy on the Road.

At a time in life when most males discover puberty, John Knight, with his high grade-point average and low-brow humor, discovered the punch line: he literally was meant to be a career comedian. He started performing stand-up in his senior year of college, and dropped out nine credits short of his degree, when faced with a long line at registration: “I was a history major in college, which means you have two options when you get out of school. You can either teach history, or go on Jeopardy and hope for the best.”

Instead, John happily found a career where a bad attitude is rewarded. John gets laughs with a routine culled from the classic comic format of everyday distractions, stretched to their exaggerated limits. Within the first few minutes, Knight will describe himself to the audience as “negative,” “cynical” and a “pessimist.” A downbeat attitude from a comedian rarely sounds so harmless or hilarious as it does from this man!

Whether entertaining with pure stand-up comedy on stage or performing his world’s worst motivational speaker set for a corporate audience, John’s off-beat humor hits home with even the most diverse of audiences.

John Denver Tribute Dinner Show

Jim Curry presents his acclaimed tribute to John Denver in a special dinner show at St. Croix Casino Danbury on Thursday, January 29. Dinner is served at 6 p.m. followed by the show at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 and are available online at tempotickets.com/stcroixcasinos or in person at the St. Croix Perks booth at the casino.

Jim Curry began his music career writing and performing the opening song, “The Time of Your Life” for his senior play. The song was then voted to be the 1975 class song and Jim was awarded a Rotary Scholarship to study music in college. Even at this early stage in his life Jim’s natural voice resembled that of singer/songwriter John Denver. Embracing the similarities, Jim continued to sing and specialize in the songs of John Denver, sharing John’s positive messages of love, humanity and environmental awareness.

The untimely death of John Denver’s in 1997 was a tragedy that was felt the world over. Such a void in the musical world left John’s ardent fans demanding that his music survive. CBS television responded by producing a made for TV movie: “Take Me Home, the John Denver Story” in which Jim landed an off-camera role singing as the voice of John Denver. This experience inspired Jim to produce full–length John Denver tribute concerts.

He’s not your usual “Vegas style” impersonator. In fact, he is not an impersonator at all. Jim sings, in his own natural voice, a tribute to the music in a way that has to be seen and heard to understand the pure honesty of his amazing performance. His looks and his voice are simply a pleasant coincidence that captures the true essence of John Denver’s music. Curry’s heartfelt delivery rolls out into the crowd as multi-platinum hits like “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s Song” and “Calypso” fill the room.

Jim has created the ultimate tribute experience and has emerged as the top performer of John Denver’s music today. He often performs with John Denver’s former band members. Curry’s tribute is the first and only full-length John Denver tribute in a Las Vegas Casino and is a sell-out favorite at the Silverton time after time. Curry has taken his show on the road to Performing Arts Centers and Casinos in the US and Canada and out to sea as one of the most popular shows on the Holland America Cruise Line.

Jim’s latest efforts are to take his tribute show to a new level by adding symphony orchestrations back into live performances of John Denver music. When John Denver wanted to add a full orchestra to his live shows and recordings, he teamed up with Grammy Award winning arranger, composer and conductor Lee Holdridge. Lee’s symphony arrangements, along with John’s songs became the trademark sound of many of John’s hits. Jim Curry and Lee Holdridge have now brought the rebirth of the timeless songs of America’s troubadour back in a full-length live concert of John Denver’s greatest works.

Whether Jim is performing with a symphony orchestra, with his talented band, or all by himself, his compelling voice, combined with dramatic images of nature is an unforgettable show that will truly fill up your senses.
