“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.”

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.

“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.

Cutler Brothers Productions gives their comedy nights a PG-13 rating. “It’s just fun. Nothing you wouldn’t see on day to day television,” said comedy night director Kelly Cutler. He added, “If you like Saturday Night Live or Mad TV or any of these sketch shows, comedy night is right up your alley.”

Several Cutler Bros. actors played major roles in a “Ghost Adventures” episode that aired this past weekend on the Travel Channel. The show is about several so-called ghost-hunters that investigate creepy haunted places for paranormal activity. This particular episode was about the Old Montana State Prison, where the ghost crew was locked in for an entire night with just a few cameras.
Each episode shows re-enactments of past events that lead to the location being haunted. In this case, it was the 1959 riot where Jerry Myles and his boyfriend started a prison riot. Tilley and Buck played the roles of Myles and the boyfriend in the staged re-enactments.
