Las Vegas Entertainer Andy Gross - March 10

Mattie Kelly Arts Center


2/9/2012 -

Las Vegas Entertainer Andy Gross - March 10, Mattie Kelly Arts Center A Night of Magic, Ventriloquism and Comedy

Las Vegas entertainer Andy Gross will boggle the mind with his ventriloquism, comedy and magic variety show on March 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at Northwest Florida State College. Having headlined at comedy clubs nationwide, his performances showcase his unparalleled voice-throwing ability and spellbinding feats of illusion in a family-friendly show.

Tickets are available now for $25 adults and $20 for youth age 18 and younger. There is a group discount of $5 off per ticket for groups of 10 or more tickets purchased together.

Andy Gross performs over 150 shows a year at comedy clubs, Las Vegas, cruise ships, fortune 500 corporate events, and performing arts venues everywhere. Named the Las Vegas’ #1 Entertainer of 2010, Andy's ad-libs during his stand-up are frequently compared to Don Rickles and Robin Williams. And, his voice throwing is truly "must hear to believe" feat!

Andy Gross also appears frequently on TV, including most recently an NBC television special featuring his talents. Entertainment editors across the nation have enthused about the multi-talented entertainer, calling his event "the hottest variety show in the country" according to the Las Vegas Sun and "Not just another illusion show, this show has it all," according to talk show host Jenny Jones.

"This thrilling show is unlike anything we've brought to the Arts Center in the past and is appropriate for audiences of all ages," noted Dr. Cliff Herron, executive director of the Mattie Kelly Arts Center. "Andy Gross is definitely one of the hottest corporate entertainers, stand-up comics, magicians and ventriloquists working today."

The Mattie Kelly Arts Center box office is open Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and starting at 6:00 p.m. the night of the show for any available at-the-door seats. Tickets in advance or at-the-door are the same price. Contact the Mattie Kelly Arts Center box office at (850) 729-6000 or purchase online at

All 1,650 seats in the main theater at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center are no more than 90 feet from the stage - making every seat "the best seat in the house" at the performance venue which is located on the eastern edge of the college's Niceville campus at 100 College Boulevard. The center is just minutes from Interstate 10 or the mid-Bay Bridge, and is easily accessible to patrons from surrounding communities.
