Reveille announces Spring Comedy Concert


Reveille Men’s Chorus of Tucson, Arizona is pleased to announce their R-rated comedy show titled “Make ‘Em Laugh, Comedy in Music.”  With two performances at the Berger Center for the Performing Arts, 1200 W. Speedway Blvd, the guys are really pulling out all the stops!  Join Reveille on Friday April 24th at 8:00pm or Sunday April 26th at 3:00pm, and make sure to leave the kids at home.  Tickets are $10 for students, $20 at the door, or $15 for tickets purchased in advance.  Get those advance tickets at, Antigone Books, by calling 520-304-1758, or from any Reveille member.  Enter “Wingspan” code when purchasing online or mention “Wingspan” when purchasing and $5 from each ticket will be donated to Tucson’s own LGBT center.


This is Reveille's 15th year of changing lives through music.  If you've seen a Reveille concert before you know that humor has always been an essential element in their shows and "Make 'em Laugh, Comedy in Music” will be no different, showcasing the chorus's comedic as well as musical talents in a decidedly adult manner.  Artistic Director Linus Lerner has selected a broad spectrum of music that parodies all elements of this crazy world we are living in.  Audience members will be asked to check their sensitivities at the door, all bets are off and political correctness will be thrown out the window.  No sacred cow will be left unturned!


Featuring special guest and host, Tucson comedian TOM POTTER!  Doc TP is an actor, comedian, and magician who began his career as a body guard for Glen Campbell and Ozzy Osborne. Since then, he has opened for Jay Leno and is a regular on the Las Vegas Strip. Tom has appeared in West Side Story, as Oscar in The Odd Couple, in Puccini's La Bohème, and in The Skeleton Key starring Kate Hudson. His interests include blues harmonica and quantum physics. He is often cast as "that crazy old guy" and is famous for his song, The Dirty Joke Blues.  Tom is excited to be working with Reveille Men's Chorus, and promises many guffaws at the April concert.  See more about him at
