Cleveland Comedy Festival: Cleveland Tonight! "We Can Be Heroes" with Mike Polk and The Diamond Dogs

Cleveland Comedy Festival: Cleveland Tonight! "We Can Be Heroes" with Mike Polk and The Diamond Dogs

Back in 2014 Mike Polk Jr. rocked the Hanna Theatre with a live “Tonight Show” style variety show. Well, Cleveland’s favorite comedic provocateur is back with an all new edition of Cleveland Tonight! but with a special theme and goal. “We Can Be Heroes” will be a music / comedy variety show celebrating the vision of the incomparable David Bowie and will feature the music of Diamond Dogs – a tribute band that embodies the sound and vision of David Bowie.

The show will feature multiple songs with Diamond Dogs, comedy and video segments from Mike Polk Jr. and his comedy cohorts and interviews with special guests including Cleveland radio legend John Gorman (the architect of WMMS during its time of rock radio dominance). And, that’s not all –the show will also serve as an important fundraiser to benefit The Greater Cleveland Food Bank. 100% of the net proceeds from the show will benefit The Greater Cleveland Food Bank. You definitely want to get your tickets now for this special one-time extravaganza. Join us for a fun and entertaining evening and help support the Food Bank.

Children Policy:
Not recommended for children. Everyone regardless of age must have a ticket. Any person disrupting a performance or inhibiting the enjoyment of an event for guests may be removed from the theater without refund.
