Back by popular demand, the Planet of the Grapes Wine Fest features local wines, live music and top-notch comedy.
“We’re always thrilled to bring great comedians to Traverse City,” shares Christopher
O’Non, producer of Planet of the Grapes and the Sips n’ Giggles comedy show series,
“and featuring our popular Sips n’ Giggles at this event just made sense.”
The fest is being held Saturday, April 25, 2020 at the Leelanau Studios in Traverse
City. Attendees will enjoy local wine tasting from 4 to 7 pm with live music from local
favorite Levi Britton and the Sips n’ Giggles comedy show at 7 pm featuring Michael

with David Letterman, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, The Late Late Show with
James Corden, the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Late Show with Stephen
Colbert, Conan, and A Little Late with Lilly Singh.
“Michael Palascak is one of the best and most likable stand-up comedians touring right
now. With each year, he continues garnishing more and more success. I look forward to
seeing his accomplishments over the next couple years,” shares O’Non.

am. Participants will get entertaining information about wine from our charismatic
