The Cedar Presents Daily Show Co-Creator and Comedian
in “I Really Don’t Caravan, Do You?” 2018 IN REVIEW
December 30th, 2pm and 7:30pm & December 31st 7:30pm
Comedian and Minnesota Native Lizz Winstead is back in the Twin Cities for her 9th straight year of giving her hilarious take and smokey side-eye to the year that was.
In a word, 2018 has been… Feckless.
While the midterms may have turned the country a darker shade of blue, 2018 also bought us a whiter shade of fail- and it isn’t over yet!
Between Steve King and Kavanaugh, Caravans and Collusion, 2018 has given her a lot to work with!
Nike “Just Did It” with Kap, NBC “Just Didn’t” with Rosanne, and Trump “Totally did it” with Stormy.
And then there’s the Freaky Friday remake starring Taylor Swift and Kanye!
To quote Winstead, “Many are calling 2018 “The Year of the Woman” and we haven’t heard that since 1992! Every 26 years it’s our time! Progress is real y’all!”
Winstead will cover all of it- from the Mueller madness, to the new Minnesota Matriarchy, Winstead’s annual recap is the year-end exhale we all need.
Tickets $45 Advance / $55 Day of Show /$65 VIP
VIP includes premium seating plus a meet & greet with Lizz and a beverage of your choice
