On Sunday, October 20, at 7 p.m., Manitowoc Minute’s Charlie Berens comes to Door Community Auditorium (DCA) to perform his show “Oh My Gosh!?”. Nationally acclaimed bluegrass band The Special Consensus (featuring Sturgeon Bay’s own Nick Dumas) opens the show.
Comedian, actor, and Emmy-winning journalist Charlie Berens is a dynamic talent in the world of American comedy—and he’s from Wisconsin. Berens is the creator and star of “Manitowoc Minute,” a viral online video series lampooning the Wisconsin culture he knows and loves so well. Berens is regularly featured on “Funny or Die,” and his comedic mashups (including “If Jack Dawson Was Really From Wisconsin”) have garnered more than 13 million views.
The Green Bay Press-Gazette raves that Charlie Berens is “funny as heck…It takes one to know one, and oh my gosh, does Charlie Berens know us.”
Opening the show will be The Special Consensus, a modern classic bluegrass band led by Greg Cahill, banjo legend and recipient of the prestigious Distinguished Achievement Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA). Special Consensus (whose mandolin player, Nick Dumas, lives in Sturgeon Bay) has received five IBMA awards and two Grammy nominations, including one in 2019. Spirited and fun, Special Consensus is endlessly innovative and yet thoroughly rooted in tradition.
The Chicago Tribune writes, “Yes, Special Consensus may be Chicago’s very own veteran bluegrass band, but talent like this is the property of the world.”
