Looking for a night of fun in Franklin for the whole family? Main Event Comedy Club will have the inspirational, yet very funny, Brett Leake in the house on November 23rd. As one of our nation’s top sitdown standup comics, Brett’s a standup, squeaky clean ‘above the belt’ and ‘between the ears’ comedian. His motivational message is pulled from his experience living with muscular dystrophy and presented in short light anecdotes as he describes a life he has lived to the fullest not in spite of the problems but because of them. With several appearances on The Tonight Show, he continues to appear on the public broadcasting comedy special, Laughing Matters with Brett Leake. There is no better way to bring family together than by laughing with them, so get your tickets now! Tickets only $15.00, General Seating. Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. Food and drinks are available at show, proceeds benefit Blackwater Community Events.  Read More
