ABOUT THE SHOW
MEET THE BOOMER BOYS!
A fun-loving “fat pack” of middle-aged men who realize the best way to deal with getting older is to laugh about it with your friends. That’s exactly what these guys do as they navigate everything from the depths of expanding waistlines to the heights of Viagra.
Ladies, now is your chance to find out what men are really thinking as this hilarious evening of songs covers everything from snoring and hair loss to weight gain and lost car keys. And all’s well that ends well as our mid-life quartet concludes with the inspirational revelation that you’ll never be younger than you are today!
If a hilarious night of songs, jokes and stories is on your to-do list, let the Boomer Boys check it off!
