Freedom Hall Presents
The Stand-Up Comedy of Tom Dreesen and His Memories of Frank Sinatra

Friday, September 20, 2013
7:30 p.m.
- Tickets $28  (Subscribers $24)


In this unforgettable performance, Dreesen will take you from his childhood of shining shoes in bars in his hometown of Harvey, hearing Sinatra on the jukebox to one day touring the nation as his opening act flying in his private jet and staying up with Frank till dawn, night after night. He takes you to Frank’s last performance and the last song he ever sang and then to his last days on earth. Dreesen’s keen insight to arguably the greatest career show business has ever known, and the lessons he learned from the legendary star, promises to move the audience! Dreesen has made over 500 appearances on national TV, including 61 appearances on the Tonight Show plus guest hosting David Letterman.
