Both men’s names are present on Comedy Central's list of the 100 Greatest Stand-up Comedians of All Time. “It’s such an honor to be able to present either one of these two legendary performers” said Lakeshore Theater Artistic Director and Co-owner, Chris Ritter. “Having the opportunity to see both of them in one evening is simply a once-in-a-lifetime event”.
