Head to the LPCA for some adult comedy

Simply put, Moody McCarthy is a wordsmith; he loves crafting jokes. Good thing he's a comic - otherwise he'd make an annoying surgeon.

Ever since McCarthy began honing material in the 1990s people have predicted stardom for him. Well, those people have been debunked. But McCarthy kept honing (he's a honer) and became a superb stand-up comic. Based out of New York, he's left crowds wanting more all over North America and even Asia.

With his playful take on everything from the allure of women with raspy voices to the joys of crossing time zones, McCarthy is bankable in any venue. No gimmicks, just straight set-up amd punch. Don't let his decorum fool you: he offers a versatile act you can take home to your folks or to your gang initiation.

McCarthy has been seen on season four of NBC's Last Comic Standing, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Star Search 2003, The Early Show and more. Not to mention playing comedy clubs around the country, McCarthy has opened for Brian Regan, Wanda Sykes, Bobcat Goldthwait, Greg Giraldo and Lewis Schaffer.

Mike Speirs is a tremendously funny comedian whose quick wit and likeability entertain and engage audiences at every single show. At 29, Mike finds his life in a transition phase. This former party boy finds his crazy days to be more and more of a distant memory as he deals with the increasing reality of being a full-fledged grown up. Whether he is discussing the cheers and jeers of being a public school teacher, surviving open heart surgery, or just reminiscing about his glory days of striking out with women while bar hopping, one thing is for sure: Mike's material is fresh, honest and most importantly hilarious. He is certain to keep crowds alive, energized and clamoring for more.

You've seen them on television and online, now's your chance to see them live in the LPCA's intimate 355 seat house. The Lake Placid Center for the Arts is excited to welcome these great comics to the stage for a one-night-only. Tickets are $16 and can be purchased by calling the box office at 523-2512.
