A decade into his standup career, Steve Gillespie moved from Minneapolis to LA, recently made an appearance on Conan, and released his critically acclaimed second album, Alive on State, which reached #1 on the iTunes charts. Prior to that, this gentleman degenerate spent most of his life traveling the country regaling audiences with his delightful self-destruction.
Gillespie’s act is a slaphappy balance of aggression and absurdity, coupled with a delightfully pushy persona and coarse yet effective word choice. His hilarious self– flagellation and blistering social commentary has also earned him spots on Fox’s Laughs as well as the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival. He was a finalist in CMT’s Next Big Comic, a runner up for Best of the Midwest at Gilda’s Laughfest, and his debut album Stever Fever from Rooftop Comedy was named a top– 10 comedy album of the year by ComedyReviews.com.
Gillespie has also had the pleasure of sharing the biggest stages with some of the best comics in the country, including opening appearances for Dave Attell, Jim Breuer, Tom Segura, Kyle Kinnane, Tom Green, Harland Williams, Doug Benson, Emo Phillips, and Gilbert Gottfried.
The show begins at 8:00 pm and the doors open at 7:00 pm. Purchase your tickets now for a night of laughter at Bye the Willow!

By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson's six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation. The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall. Directed by Nancy Scobie and Musical Direction by Jerry Way. Presented with special permission by Music Theater International.
Admission: Adults $15, Seniors $14, Youth $6
