Cutler Brothers Productions in Deer Lodge present a “Lover’s Matinee” this Valentine’s Day at 3:00 pm in their theatre. The matinee will take on the format of a Cutler Brother’s Comedy Night with various skits themed towards the holiday, a special guest host (Ron Snow), and a musical guest (Julian Noll).
“Lover’s Matinee” is the 5th consecutive Valentine’s Day show for the brothers and the 31st Comedy Night since the company’s creation. It will resemble Saturday Night Live with audience participation from time to time. The performance is not exclusively for couples. Singles, brothers, sisters, and friends are encouraged to come laugh as well. “This is the first time ever that we’ve tried a matinee performance for Comedy Night,” said the show’s cofounder, Kelly Cutler. He added, “Since it’s a Sunday we figured folks could come out, have a laugh, and then head off to a romantic dinner after the show.”
Starring in the “Lover’s Matinee” are comedy night favorites including Kelly and Matthew Cutler, Zane Cozby, Stuart Jewell, Wolf Winters, Jim Cameron, Jim J. Tilley, Rex Kendall, Kyle Gillette, Theresa Cameron, Tina Saville, and Jenn Logan. Anaconda native Carin Sullivan will also join the cast for her 6th Comedy Night appearance. Hosting the show is New Mexico native Ron Snow who now works at Rock Creek Cattle Company and is also the president of the Powell County Medical Foundation Board of Directors. The musical guest is Julian Noll who will bring a slightly different taste to Comedy Night as he will perform electronic music.
“Lover’s Matinee” comedy sketches include several classic spoofs as well as original works by Kelly and Matthew Cutler. Audience members will be taken on a musical roller coaster with “Grease.” The hit Comedy Night morning show “Live with Tim and Sandy” will have its third part to the series. The Comedy Night News, which resembles SNL’s “Weekend Update,” will poke fun at national and local current events. In total the show boasts 9 separate, original sketches.
