This week’s entertainment includes:
July 21, 8:15 p.m., Hoover Auditorium, Tim Hawkins. Hawkins began his career as a stand-up comedian after quitting his job as a grocery truck driver in 2002. Now, he performs 120 shows in 30 states each year. With more than 300 million views online and sold-out shows, his “Jackwagon Crew” of fans has grown into a revolution of multi-generational proportions. Hawkins’ comedy show entertains the entire family while doubling down on the funny, a daunting task in an age where the obscene has become routine. His obscure approach to the comedic stage sets him apart from others.
July 22, 12-4 p.m., Pavilion, Concert in the Park: Wally & The Beavs. Wally & The Beavs provide entertainment during the Lakeside Wooden Boat Show & Plein Air Art Festival. The band performs a variety of popular Motown and classic rock music, including cover songs by Steely Dan, The Beatles, Chicago and other respected artists.
July 24, 8:15 p.m., Hoover Auditorium, Rob & Miss Jane. Rob Lok and Ievgeniia Pokrovska Lok, also known as Miss Jane, first met when they shared a stage at the 2012 World Expo in South Korea. It didn’t take long to realize they could create dynamic shows together by combining the grace and beauty of Miss Jane’s dancing with Rob’s circus skills and a healthy dose of rapid-fire physical comedy. The result is a dynamic, family-friendly show that entertains all ages.
July 25, 7:30 p.m., Hoover Auditorium, Opening Night of the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra. To open its 55th season, the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra will present “Home Movies”, under the direction of guest conductor John Gordon Ross.
