Best Wednesday Night of the Year: Dec. 29 with Todd Barry

Great Lakes Center for the Arts brings comedian Todd Barry to the stage
By Lynda Wheatley | Dec. 18, 2021

Before you slam the door on 2021 (like, didn’t we already try that at the end of 2020?), give the year a chance to end on a high note — specifically, your own hysterical laughter. Great Lakes Center for the Arts will make it more than possible; it’s bringing one of our favorite comedians, Todd Barry, to the stage Dec. 29. A master of deadpan and nuance in any role he plays — think: the bongo-playing “Third Choncord” on HBO’s unforgettable Flight of the Chonchords and Mickey Rourke’s “deli boss” in the Oscar-winning The Wrestler — Barry boasts three one-hour stand-up specials (warm up with his latest for Netflix, Spicy Honey) and has had a hit performance on just about every late show of note — The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, and Late Night With Seth Meyers. Tickets are $25. Translation: Don’t dilly-dally. www.greatlakescfa.org
