Saturday, July 21, 8pm, Thunder Valley Casino Resort, $47.95-$82.95
They say you shouldn’t make jokes about jokes, so I’m going to keep this very dry: Jim Gaffigan, a very visible family man, funnyman and Catholic, will be arriving in Lincoln to stand up on a stage and talk to an audience. Most people in the audience will expect to laugh. Presumably, Gaffigan will try to make them laugh—what happens next, you’ll have to buy a ticket to find out. 1200 Athens Avenue, thundervalleyresort.com.
