Cruse to headline JWT’s Second Saturday Comedy Series

Staff Report

PIKEVILLE – On Saturday December 12, Jenny Wiley Theatre will conclude its 2015 Second Saturday Comedy Series with Lee Cruse. Cruse has become the gold standard for comedy in the Bluegrass and beyond. He’s been making Kentuckians laugh through radio, as well as Lexington’s number one morning television program for over a decade.

“I really do have the best job on the planet,” Cruse said. I love my Kentucky home, so to have the opportunity to visit these fascinating places and the great people is a privilege. It’s like I’m the community dog; people seem happy to see me and they’re always giving me snacks.”

Cruse took his talents to the stage in 1995 to become a stand-up comic. His self-deprecating style and sarcasm is biting without any vulgarity. Cruse will be joined by host Kyle Fields and comedian Coach Billy Goldsmith.

The show will start at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are only $15. To make reservations, patrons should call 877-CALL-JWT or book online at
