Young American Comedy Tour - Wed 11/25 - Detroit City Theatre

A young man is walking through a small village one day and decides to stop by a bar and have a beer. He walks into a bar, and sees a grizzled old man, crying into his beer. Curious, the young man sits down and says, "Hey old timer, why the long face?"


The old man looks at him and points out the window, "See that dock out there? I built that dock with my own two hands, plank by plank, nail by nail, but do they call me McGregor the dockbuilder? No, no."
The old man continued, "And see that ship out there? I’ve been fishing these waters for my village for 35 years! But do they call me McGregor the fisherman? No, no."


The old man continued, "And see all the crops in the farms out there? I planted and have been farming those crops for my village for nearly 45 years! But do they call me McGregor the farmer? No, no."
The old man starts to cry again,



"
But you fuck one goat..."

MCB gave away a few sets of tickets to this show and this was one of the winning jokes submitted by our lovely readers...
Here is the info on the show.....

Mike Young, a Southfield (Michigan) native is the creator of the Young American Comedy Tour - which stops 9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 25 at Detroit's City Theatre. Now based in Los Angeles, Mike has forged relationships with some of Hollywood's heavy-hitters - from Spiderman's Tobey Maguire to Entourage creator Doug Ellin and star Kevin Connolly.

Throughout his time in LA, Young has written for TV, film and more. He is currently working on multiple projects, including a sit-com called Big Kids, executive-produced by Vince Vaughn that he describes as 30 Rock-meets-Funny Or Die. Young sold a show called Forever Young to ABC and he has written a full-length feature film titled Right Angle, which is based on the life of his longtime friend Beverly Hills Mich. resident Adam Niskar, who became paralyzed after diving into a lake 10 years ago. The movie, produced by Camelot Pictures, will be filmed in Michigan. Young said casting has just begun for Right Angle, a story he calls "Juno in a wheelchair" because it blends unlikely humor with a tragic situation.

For now, Young is focused on making his Young American Comedy Tour into Detroit's own Apollo Theatre. On Nov. 25, he's lending the microphone to some of the hottest young comedians in the country - as well as local performers.

What audiences won’t see from their seats, though, is a driving force behind the show – Mike’s brother Robert Young. Robert, a Commerce Township (Michigan) resident, has always been Mike’s biggest fan. When times were tough and Mike was just starting his career in Los Angeles, it was Robert who cheered him on. And today, Robert serves as executive producer of the Young American Comedy Tour.
