UW-Platteville hosts humorous Canadian troupe
PLATTEVILLE - The University of Wisconsin-Platteville will host a three-man comedy troupe as part of its CFA Family Events and Concerts.
The Arrogant Worms are a Canadian musical and vocal group on a mission to make their audience laugh. Their instruments consist of a guitar and bass; combine those with a great stage presence, tight harmonies and sharp wit, and it all adds up to a performance worth seeing. While their songs and banter will split sides, it is the musicianship and vocal prowess that is utterly amazing.
Canada self-proclaims the Worms as Clowned Princes of Humor, Purveyors of the Absurd, and Ambassadors of Fun. They have humored audiences throughout North America, from Disney to Central Park, into the Grand Canyon and as far away as Australia.
Sit back and be entertained with great music, clever lyrics and hilarious interaction with the Arrogant Worms. This comedy troupe performance is best suited for mature audiences.
The performance is on Thursday, Jan. 22 at 8 p.m. at UW-Platteville Center for the Arts. Tickets are available through the university box office. Ticket prices are: UWP students free (ticket must be reserved with student ID) and general admission is $10. The university box office is open Monday-Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the telephone number is 342-1298.
