Some day soon,
Kutsher's Golf Pro
is going to club our MC.
We've got a beautiful championship golf course,
7,157 yards, 18 holes, 3 tees at each hole. Yet in the
morning it all goes to waste.
It's our night life.
Great shows every night. First in one night club, then
in the other. Act after act. And when you think it's
going to end, our MC announces another.
Several times, the Golf Pro has asked the MC to tell
the golfers they have to get up in the morning. But you
know MC's. He never does.
So one of these days, our Pro will really get mad and
club our MC. Make sure you're there to see it.
