Show Report Laughs in a Glass June 7

We had our second Laughs in a Glass show at 3 Steves winery last Friday. There were a ton of other things going on that night including high school graduations, the Warrior’s game, and the rodeo. Despite all that, we still had a great turnout for the show. The comics; Pat Griffin, Just Lockwood, and Karinda Dobbins had the crowd laughing all night.

Check out some clips from the show.
