Interview with “Geechy Guy”

By David Johanssen

Ready for some new year giggles? The red-hot comedy club headliner, “Geechy Guy”, a regular on the “Tonight Show” and often seen playing to full houses in Las Vegas as well as on cruise ships around the world is coming to San Miguel! Only your up-tight Aunt Tilly would want to miss his award winning “The Dirty Joke Show,” exclusively at Shelter Theater Jan. 10, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, and 20 at 7 pm.

The funnyman started cracking up friends in his hometown of Rochester, MI when he got into stand-up comedy at age 19. In the late 80s, Geech was invited to San Francisco where he finished in the top 10 out of 500 comics at the “Comedy Competition” two years in a row. He then headed south to LA where he got on TV’s “Star Search” and went on to set the record for the most appearances by a comedian. Geech is even in the Guinness Book of World Records for telling 676 jokes in one hour!

After opening for the legendary “Righteous Brothers”, he settled in Las Vegas in 1996 and started to perform there. Three years, over 25 casinos and dozens of cruise ships later, Geech created his eponymous, “The Geechy Guy Happy Hour” and is today one of the Strip’s regulars.

To welcome 2018, Shelter is proud to present Geech’s highly acclaimed Las Vegas show with two parts. In the first half, audiences will hear his family-rated jokes but after the break, get ready for raunch as Geech trots out ‘The Dirty Joke Show’. “This Hilarious stand-up routine puts the typical version on its ear! Yes, it's Raunchy. Yes, it's R-rated. This is why we love it!” - 24/7 Magazine. Tickets available at Biblioteca and online at www.sheltervg4.com.

We recently sat down with Geech to find out more about the funnyman:

Shelter: Why do they call you “Geechy Guy”?
Geech: It's Japanese for “Crazy”. It was given to me by an exchange student in college and it stuck.

Shelter: Why did you decide to bring your show to San Miguel?
Geech: Because it’s the best little city in the world!

Shelter: Did you get any good advice when you were starting out in comedy?
Geech: Well, there were some comics that I looked up to. George Carlin said, “Write everything down and save it.” Steve Martin’s advice was, “Be so funny that they can’t ignore you!”

Shelter: What advice would you give to a young comic just starting out?
Geech: Stage time! There's no shortcut to what 1000 times onstage will do to your act!

To welcome 2018, Shelter is proud to present Geech’s highly acclaimed Las Vegas show with two parts. In the first half, audiences will hear his family-rated jokes but after the break, get ready for raunch as Geech trots out ‘The Dirty Joke Show’. “This Hilarious stand-up routine puts the typical version on its ear!

Geechy Guy Presents “The Dirty Joke Show”

Interview with a real-life ‘Mentalist’

By David Johanssen “Every day, when we walk out the door, we give away more about ourselves than we could possibly imagine!” Thus began our conversation with real-life “mentalist”, Thomas Baxter, recently returned to San Miguel from his home on Vancouver Island, Canada. He has returned to San Miguel for an exclusive engagement at Shelter Theater Dec 29, 30 and Jan. 5, 6 at 7 pm.

Shelter: “We were blown away by your show the last time you were in town, how do you do it? How do you know what people are thinking?”

Tom Baxter: “Some call what I do “psychological illusion.” I explain right at the beginning of my show that I will be manipulating the audience’s perceptions and their choices in the ‘experiments’ that follow. Part of the fun is watching how people react, despite their best attempts to avoid being influenced, or giving away what they are thinking.”

Shelter: “Observation can explain some of it, but we’ve seen you reveal intimate thoughts during your show, things that you would have no way of knowing.”

Tom Baxter: “Well, I've had to learn an entirely new set of very esoteric and arcane skills to do the things that I do in my “Thought Control” show. Psychology, verbal and non-verbal manipulation, even things as diverse as Japanese Video Game Theory now play a part in how I manage to find out what people are thinking.”

Shelter: What’s the point?

Tom Baxter: “It’s all about demonstrating the amazing connections that we all have as human beings... the things we are all inherently sense, without realizing it. In the end, I want people to leave the theater having been happily mystified, but inspired to be more aware of the people around them, and perhaps to question their per-conceived notions of what is possible.”

Baxter’s shows were completely sold out last year so buy your tickets now at Biblioteca and online at www.sheltervg4.com. They’re going fast! So, where the heck is Shelter Theater?
