Join locals New Year’s Eve for an evening of stand-up comedy with Gary Menke and Dustin Diamond! Advanced tickets $17 ($22 day of the show), VIP tickets $22 in advance.
He played the bad guy on Celebrity Fit Club and has been hailed as the “Dark Prince of Comedy”. Dustin Diamond is a pop culture icon, and is best known for his role as Screech on Saved by the Bell. Dustin played Screech through all 10 seasons of the show, and to this day, Saved by the Bell is still seen in syndication 16 times per week in 105 countries.
For the past 17 years, Dustin has toured the world as a stand-up comedian. His act is suitable for the now grown-up fans of Saved by the Bell. It is adult-oriented, hilarious, and definitely not the same squeaky-clean, Saturday morning comedy that he spent 10 years doing as Screech. In his act, Dustin touches on life’s most important topics – grandma porn, farts, and the secrets of the female sex.
In addition to stand-up comedy, Dustin has been involved in reality television, indie movies, and numerous other projects. Most recently, he played himself in Better Reach Screech, The Nerdist’s parody of Breaking Bad. He appeared on the British reality series Big Brother, and was also seen on Oprah’s Where Are They Now?, in which he touched upon topics such as his tell-all book Behind the Bell, and other previous media stunts.
