“A Night of Dysfunctional Comedy”; HBO Comic To Perform for Community Healing Center
Mark Lundholm will bring the humor from his HBO special, one-man Broadway show, and also his work on A&E's Project Recovery, to Dalton Center Recital Hall at WMU on Tuesday night, October 27th.
Addiction is a subject Lundholm knows well. Lundholm says he was distractible as a kid, but the term ADD wasn’t used back then. He says ADD stood for “all different dads” in a dysfunctional family, where he grew up the oldest of five children. Lundholm says at the age of 55 he still struggles with addiction in some ways. But Lundholm has been sober for 25 years, and enjoys sharing his own story with sharp wit and humor.
The program is free and open to the public – you can RSVP by Clicking here or by calling (268) 343-1651 ext 165.
His performance is part of the Coming Together program sponsored by the Community Healing Centers of Kalamazoo, Western Michigan University’s Specialty Program in Alcohol and Drug Abuse, and Kalamazoo Anesthesiology. For more information call 269-343-1651. Seating is general admission. The doors open at 6:15 featuring Michigan Harvest refreshments. Program begins at 7:00.
Lundholm says while there is an important message with his show, his first job is to make sure that people laugh.
"My motive for the show, coming into Kalamazoo is entertainment primarily. Information or access to help secondarily, and third trying to be an honorable spokesperson because they’ve given me the platform of their attention”.
