Nemacolin Woodlands Resort will feature well-known comedians in their upcoming "Funny Business" comedy series. Beginning this month, the resort will welcome a different personality to headline a comedy show each month in the resort's Grand Ballroom.
"Our owners have long subscribed to the theory that Nemacolin Woodlands should be a place for fun and that we shouldn't take ourselves too seriously," said Chris Plummer, general manager of the resort. "Bringing comedy into our entertainment line-up seemed like the perfect fit," added Plummer.
The series opens May 26 with Bill Crawford.
Crawford, who recently joined the on-air team at WDVE Radio, has performed at the TBS "Just For Laughs" comedy festival in Chicago, and has been described as one of the country's most promising stand-ups.
Other series performers include Matt Wohlfarth, Billy Elmer, Gene Collier and Aaron Kleiber. Most shows will feature an opening act in addition to the headline performers. Show dates, along with complete comedian biographies, are detailed at nemacolin.com in the resort's Events Calendar. Space for each performance is limited and advance reservations are strongly recommended.
All shows begin at 9 p.m. The admission price provides entrance to the performance and includes one complimentary drink. Due to the adult nature of some material, guests under the age of 18 will not be admitted to the shows.
