Comedians extraordinaire Brad Garrett and Rita Rudner are headed our way for a full evening of smart, outrageous humor. Garrett, former co-star of “Everybody Loves Raymond,” made his bones working the LA comedy clubs. After that appearance his career took off and he’s been going strong, working every medium from major TV sitcoms (“Seinfeld”), the silver screen (“Night at the Museum”) and voice work in animated films (“Finding Nemo”). Rita Rudner’s brand is that of the soft-spoken, intelligent but wickedly funny “square.” She’s earned mainstream appeal not only due to her sharp writing, but for putting on a “clean” show. Focusing on the minutia of everyday life and love, Rudner’s humor has earned her a multitude of awards. For mature audiences only. Garrett & Rudner will appear at the Ferguson Center in Newport News on March 20 at 7:30 p.m. Enter now to win a pair of tickets!

These are young men dreaming of the big time. To make it, they have to get past the same monsters you see every week on national television, and superstar veterans looking to stand in their way. Come out and see the action for yourself during Professional Bull Riders on March 15 at Hampton Coliseum. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. Enter now to win a pair of tickets!

Six-time Grammy winners, The Chieftains are now recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the world’s attention. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish music that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive. Never afraid to shock purists and push boundaries, in their over 50 years together The Chieftains have amassed a dizzyingly varied résumé. The Chieftains’ most recent album, “Voice of Ages,” found the band collaborating with some of modern music’s fastest-rising artists (Bon Iver, The Decemberists, The Punch Brothers and the Pistol Annies among them) to reinterpret traditional songs for old and new generations alike, proving what the music means today while hinting where it might lead tomorrow. The Chieftains will beat the Ferguson Center in Newport News on March 17 at 7:30 p.m.
