He's toured with Kenny Loggins, Whitney Houston, and Elvis Costello. "Nonstop laughter from start to finish" is what the Chicago Tribune had to say about the stand up comedy performance of Tim Walkoe going on to comment "Walkoe's rapid fire delivery and shoot from the hip style leaves audiences laughing so hard it's hard to catch up to the next joke",! And for one night only, you can see him right here!!
