1 Night/2 Shows - Funny Fest Finale    Tom Arnold As a writer, producer, and actor, Tom Arnold has established himself to both television and film audiences worldwide, having won such awards as the Peabody Award and a Golden Globe Award.  Additionally, he helped put Fox Sports Network on the map with his hosting duties on “BEST DAMN SPORTS SHOW PERIOD.” Arnold cornered the market on playing the resident comic relief in films like “NINE MONTHS” with Hugh Grant, Julianne Moore, and Robin Williams, “TRUE LIES” with Arnold Schwarzenegger, “HERO” with Dustin Hoffman, and “AUSTIN POWERS:  INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY” with Mike Myers. Arnold will next be seen in his 72nd film, Stephen Gyllenhaal’s quirky political comedy “GRASSROOTS”, Tyler Perry’s “MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION” and “HIT AND RUN” with Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell and Bradley Cooper. Arnold has successfully broken out of the comedic stereotype and is becoming a fixture at film festivals by landing more mature and dramatic roles.  He received critical praise for his role in “GARDENS OF THE NIGHT,” opposite John Malkovich, “THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD” starring John Malkovich and Tom Hanks, “GOOD DICK” opposite Jason Ritter, and “THE YEAR OF GETTING TO KNOW US” opposite Sharon Stone, Jimmy Fallon and Lucy Liu.  In 2005, he received critical notice for his role in Don Roos’ “HAPPY ENDINGS” for Lions Gate Films. He was also seen in “PRIDE” opposite Terrance Howard, and “ANIMAL FACTORY,” directed by Steve Buscemi.  Other film credits include “SOUL PLANE,” “CRADLE TO THE GRAVE,” “EXIT WOUNDS” and “THE KID & I.” Arnold began his career in comedy at the University of Iowa before moving to Minneapolis, where he won the Minneapolis Comedy Competition in 1988.  He then moved to Los Angeles to write on the highly successful television series, “ROSEANNE,” before eventually serving as executive producer for the sitcom.  He went on to star in his own HBO special entitled “TOM ARNOLD: THE NAKED TRUTH,” and then wrote, produced and starred in his own television series “THE JACKIE THOMAS SHOW,” “TOM” and “THE TOM SHOW.” Tom Arnold recently returned to his roots as a stand-up comic.  Never scripted, Tom pokes fun at his Midwest past, marital follies and absurd Hollywood stories.  Just like his past film and television comedy work, Tom is a ball of chaos and charisma on stage.  Showtime premiered his first stand-up comedy special on New Year’s Eve, and he frequently hosts the popular “Laughing with the Stars” weekly comedy show at The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood featuring supporting acts ranging from rising young comics to all-time favorites.  His shows are famous for their loose atmosphere with Tom breaking down the walls between his fellow comics and the audience.  No one is quite sure what to expect any given night.

For over 20 years we've produced comedy shows featuring National headlining Comedians. The shows are always great, but one of the best things about them, is hearing these comics give their take on Alaska, our home, seen through the hilarious eyes of others. I’m inviting up 5 of the most hilarious comedians who’ve been here before, love it, and couldn’t wait to come back to talk about, well, Alaska! The show will be little ripping, a little roasting, a lot of praise and some hilarious jokes and stories about their time and their take on Alaska and the people that call it home. With your generous help, we’re going to professionally tape two shows at The Blue Loon in Fairbanks on Friday, March 16. We’ll edit those shows to produce a Special title “20 Years of Alaska Comedy.” We will shop the special for national distribution and produce high quality DVDs. We even plan to include interview with some great comics who won’t be able to make it up for the taping, to include them in the special. The only way to get tickets for this once in lifetime show, is by clicking the link or going directly to Kickstarter.
