LOL Stand Up Comedy Show at the Goss Opera House in Watertown, SD!

The Goss Opera House is proud to present “LOL: An Evening of Stand Up Comedy” with headliner Jason Schommer and special guest Derek Kjenstad on Saturday, April 5 at 7:30 PM.  For one night only the laughs will come fast and furious as Jason Schommer (Louie Anderson’s opening act in Las Vegas) takes to the stage in Watertown!  Tickets are $5 and can be purchased by calling (605) 878-4677 or in person at the Goss Opera House.  The Goss Opera House is located at 100 E Kemp Ave, Watertown, SD 57201.

A hilarious night of fast paced laughs from Jason with hysterical one-liners and outrageous stories covering a wide range of topics and issues including a crazy family, weight loss, living in Las Vegas, and outrageous run-ins with Hollywood’s biggest stars!  Always unpredictable on stage, Jason keeps the audience on the edge of their seat while pointing out the insanity of small town life and the world we live in.  Whether he is stalking celebrities, surviving family get togethers, or finding himself in the middle of a bank robbery, Jason’s high energy and quick wit makes for an unforgettable evening filled with laughter.

Jason Schommer, recently named “What’s Hot For 2013” by Campus Activities Magazine, is a standup comedian who has spent the past two years as the opening act for Louie Anderson in Las Vegas.  Louie Anderson says “Jason is funny, clever, smart, and on his way to the big time!”.  Laugh-until-you-cry stories combine with playful one liners covering a wide array of topics ranging from the daily struggles of life to his loveable, yet kooky, Minnesotan family.  Jason’s unique comedy style ranges from observational humor based on his life, the world around us,  and hilarious commentary of pop culture recounting hysterical true encounters with celebrities such as Katy Perry, Lady GaGa, and Dolly Parton.  Kathy Griffin even gave Jason a shout out during her show!  Jason began his adventures in standup comedy while working for The Rosie O’Donnell Show in NYC.  The show’s writers thought he was funny, so they signed him up to perform at the New York Comedy Club.  Jason easily won over the crowd with his quick wit and energetic style.  Since then, Jason has quickly become an audience favorite at shows all over with rave reviews and a rapidly growing fan base.  Jason was a popular feature on K102 Country Music Morning Show with “From the Trailer” and KFAN radio as the gossip and entertainment reporter.  He has also appeared numerous times on Cities97, KDWB, and KQ92.

Derek Kjenstad is a new comedian making his stand up debut at “LOL”.  Coming from Astoria, South Dakota – a town that can’t get much smaller, he has an interesting way of looking at the world. Being a performer since he was a kid, Derek is no stranger to the stage and works as a professional Model and Actor.  When you come from the middle of nowhere and the directions are something like “in front of the corn field next to the bean field” finding a good time is an interesting adventure. Having been making people laugh for years offstage, Derek is ready to tackle the spotlight and leave audiences laughing about his crazy experiences from high school, college, and work!
