Feel like the only way left to react to 2020 is just to laugh? Yeah, us too! Come to the Tower Saturdays in October and enjoy cinematic comedy classics, each personally selected by and introduced with a special performance from a local comedian. Politically incorrect and potentially hilarious. Consider it your COVID survival kit, courtesy of the Tower and Ipockolyptic Productions.
1987 Rated PG 96 minutes
Special live performance and introduction by comedian Conner Satterfield
May The Farce Be With You!
In a distant galaxy, planet Spaceball’s depleted air supply renders its citizens reliant on a product called "Perri-Air." In desperation, President Skroob (Mel Brooks) orders the evil Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) to kidnap Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga) from oxygen-rich planet Druidia, holding her hostage in exchange for fresh air. Help arrives in the form of renegade space pilot Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-man, half-dog partner, Barf (John Candy).
Conner Satterfield is a local comedian, performing standup comedy since 2019, and recently made the finals of the 2020 Super Fight Mic Competition. He is a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Conner’s takes on history, pop culture, living in Texas, and what it’s like to be a bisexual male working in construction are one-of-a-kind and hysterical.
Our relaunch plan adheres to the guidance from Governor Brown, the Oregon Health Authority, and the Deschutes County Health Services.
