Spotlight: Trio of comics lined up for Bada Bing! on Sept. 13

By The Spokesman-Review
 

The third show in the Bada Bing! comedy series is set for Sept. 13 at the Bing Crosby Theater.

Local funnyman Ken Habib will open the show with a short set.

The bill also includes Duane Goad, a Canadian-born, Seattle-based comic.

Goad has opened for comedians such as Jim Gaffigan, Margaret Cho, Carlos Mencia and Lewis Black. He has appeared on Comedy Central and E!, and in commercials for Microsoft, Ford, Molson Beer and Bank of America.

The third comic is Jebb Fink, an American who now calls Calgary home. According to event promoter Craig Heimbigner, Fink grew up in Coeur d’Alene and cut his teeth in Spokane-area comedy clubs. He has appeared on the CBC series “Comics” and “Comedy Now” and has hosted numerous television programs. He has been performing in clubs and for corporate events for 30 years.

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday through TicketsWest, (800) 325-SEAT or online at www.ticketswest.com. Cost is $20. The Bing is at 901 W. Sprague Ave.
