Spontaneous, outrageous, cool and capricious, he plays to the crowd with comedic routines honed through hundreds of appearances at ballparks and arenas around the world.
Additionally, the YMCA will be giving away 1,000 youth t-shirts to children, 12 and under. Shirts will be available in several different sizes, and the availability of specific sizes will be based on a first-come, first-served basis.
