Winterfest 2017

Coldwater of Lee’s Summit will host its annual Winterfest fundraiser on Saturday, February 25, 2017, from 6:00-9:30 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn. The featured guest this year is nationally known actor and comedian Michael Joiner.

During Joiner’s 25 years of performing, he was chosen as Hollywood Improv’s “Funniest Comic in LA” and as the 2010 Christian Music Hall of Fame “Comedian of the Year.” His family-friendly routines blend sarcastic edginess and clean humor with clever, hilarious improv. Joiner also performed in the lead role opposite Oscar winner Louis Gosset Jr. in the 2010 release “The Grace Card.” You can learn more about him and watch his previous performances at
