Buddy Comedy June 20th – June 26th | From Laurel & Hardy to Cheech & Chong to Wayne’s World, the buddy comedy is one of our most enduring and beloved comedic formulas. This week we celebrate our favorite friends-on-a-mission.
June 26th – WAYNE’S WORLD – Join us for our FREE “Riverside Saturday” series at Comedy Center Park, featuring live music from The Untouchables, a showing of Wayne’s World and more! In this blockbuster spin-off of the popular “Saturday Night Live” skit, best friends Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey) are hired to host their public access show “Wayne’s World” professionally. Along the way, Wayne falls for Cassandra, the lead singer in a metal band, and must contend with a handsome network executive (Rob Lowe) who plans to take down their show and steal away Cassandra.
Limited seating is available, so we recommend bringing lawn chairs and blankets. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase.
