—Friday and Saturday, June 21 and 22: Tim Gaither began his comedic career in church at the age of 5. One Sunday the preacher called all the kids at the Southern Baptist church to the front to ask some questions. When the preacher asked the young Mr. Gaither what he thought hell would be like, he calmly replied, "Preacher, hell will be hotter than the Wal-Mart parking lot on the Fourth of July, barefoot." The church erupted with laughter, the little boy was hooked on the sound and a comic was born. Over 25 years later, Mr. Gaither has performed in most of the 40 states and abroad including shows for United States troops.
—Friday and Saturday, June 28 and 29: Flip Orley has been seen on Entertainment Tonight, The Martin Short Show, Comic Strip Live, The Ricki Lake Show, Maury Povich and Space Ghost Coast To Coast. Unlike past generations of hypnotists, Mr. Orley does not humiliate his subjects for comic effect, but instead entertains by enlightening his audiences—often with lasting beneficial effects on those who have been inducted. After forgetting their own names, regressing to age 5, or pledging undying love to complete strangers in a highly original version of The Newlywed Game, Mr. Orley’s subjects often awaken from their hypnotic trance reporting less stress.
