Sips ‘N Giggles Comedy Show

Join us for a laid back and hilariously fun evening of wine and comedy on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at Leelanau Studios off M22 in Traverse City. Start with a pre-show pour (or two) at Happy Hour from 7 to 8, featuring delicious local wine, cider and beer, with nibbles from Traverse City’s favorite Cheese Lady. Starting at 8pm, The Sips ‘N Giggles Comedy Show, presented by Uncorrect Comedy, will have you laughing hysterically while being entertained by nationally acclaimed comedian Andrew Norelli, with special guest Floyd J Phillips. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show for a local wine evening you’ll never forget.


Sips ‘N Nibbles Happy Hour — 7pm

Come hang out and “unwine” before the show, where you’ll be greeted with SEX at the door (a Dry Rosé  Sparkling Wine from Mawby) paired with a delicious variety of cheeses from The Cheese Lady. Chateau de Leelanau Tractor Pull Hard Ciders, select brews from Right Brain Brewery and wine from 45 North and Rove Estate are also available for purchase by the glass.

About Andrew


In addition to appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, the first annual “World Series of Comedy” winner has performed on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” and the nationally syndicated comedy round-table “Comics Unleashed,” where he’s also worked as a monologue joke writer. Norelli has been featured on Sirius XM, as well as the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom Show.” He recently added a Ted Talk to his resume, where he hilariously lampooned the absurdity of computer error messages. His performance at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal was praised in Time Out New York. Other international appearances include Sydney Australia’s Comedy Store where The Daily Telegraph remarked, “His show features hair trigger laughs with a deadly aim, all the more so because while some comedians overestimate their own intelligence, Norelli never underestimates ours.”
