Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast 
June is about to bust out all over!! End of school and Summer fun is on the way. What better way to enjoy the summer than to include a stay at The Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast. The barn and backyard await you. There is a net up for volleyball and badminton, a court set up behind the barn for washers, horseshoes, or bocce ball-and then all the games available in the barn! Or just spend a lazy summer day in the hammock or sun porch upstairs. Whatever your pleasure. Here are a few things happening in the are the end of may and the month of June for the times you have to break away from the Inn.

The Exhibit by Scott M Lieberman  First Friday Tour on June 6th

 
Scott M. Lieberman, M.D.: At the Vantage Point represents the first-ever solo museum exhibition of Lieberman’s photography. This exhibition brings together more than 90 images representing Lieberman’s body of work as a photojournalist with the Associated Press and numerous publications, encompassing a broad spectrum of subject matter including celebrity portraits, sporting events, nature tableaus and aerial photography.

The Third Annual East Texas Comedy Festival Sets Massive Lineup of Comedy Talent 
 
The Conan O’Brien Show, MADtv, Reno 911, Key and Peele, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and That 70’s Show are just a handful of credits the headliners of the Third Annual East Texas Comedy Festival bring to the stage of Liberty Hall on June 13th and 14th for a weekend of comedy with an edge! 

Friday June 13th will feature Stand-up comedy: 

Local favorite Brandon Davidson will host a night of standup comedy starting at 8 pm and worthy of a Comedy Central Special featuring Daryl Felsberg and headliner Jimmy Pardo from The Conan O’Brien Show. Friday will also feature the winner of "The Funniest Comic in East Texas 2014".

This year we are adding a special late night show, starting at 11pm. This comedy will not be for "the faint at heart" this is the grown folks show......if you like sweet, clean comedy then - stay away from the Liberty starting at 11 p.m. on Friday!

Our Start
Standup Headliner: Jimmy Pardo 
 
Jimmy Pardo spends nearly his entire set interacting with, and making fun of, his audience. Everything he observes or thinks, he immediately scans to find the funny. Jimmy's raucous-but-smart weekly podcast, Never Not Funny, is the No. 2 paid podcast hosted by a comedian, and was voted by iTunes and USA Today as one of the top podcasts of 2006 and 2007. His guest list reads like a Who's Who of comedy. Conan O'Brien, Richard Lewis, Patton Oswalt, and Sarah Silverman have all been guests. 
 




 Jimmy continues to headline at some of America's top comedy clubs and currently works as Conan O'Brien's opening act on Conan, where he warms the studio audience up before the show and he did the same for Conan on The Tonight Show. In addition to providing content for Teamcoco.com and appearing on the show in sketches or as a frequent guest, Jimmy recently filled in as Conan's sidekick for several shows. He has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He had his own half-hour special, Comedy Central Presents Jimmy Pardo. He hosted National Lampoon's Funny Money on the Game Show Network, and was the co-host of AMC's Movies at Our House for four seasons. He has hosted episodes of VH1's The Surreal Life and Love Lounge and NBC's Late Friday.







Saturday night we will feature Improv Comedy: 
The night of all things made up will bring a night of improv madness not for the easily offended. Kicking off at 8 pm is Card 53, who just recently added members of Dallas’s Fourth Wall Comedy. Then "Alice and Edward" will get a one-word suggestion to inspire a series of scenes never performed before. Performed and done completely off the cuff exploring characters and relationships much like an improvised sitcom.

Improv Headliner: "Alice and Edward"

Alice & Edward are the middle names of Susan Messing and Frank Caeti. Susan lives in Chicago, Frank lives in Los Angeles. They perform long form improvisation together anytime they are in the same city. 

Frank Caeti, is an alumnus of The Second City Chicago where his credits include: National
Touring Company, two resident company stages (Chicago E.T.C. & Las Vegas), Reverie (a nonverbal sketch comedy show), and Twist Your Dickens at the Kirk Douglas Theater. He can be described as a versatile actor who surprises audiences with his physicality and heartfelt vulnerability. Caeti was a series regular on FOX’s long running sketch show MADtv. Other TV credits include: Key and Peele, Reno 911, NCIS, The Jay Leno Show, and over forty commercials.

 
His regional theater credits include: La Jolla Playhouse, Dallas Theater Center, and Laguna Playhouse. Frank is one half of the acclaimed duo, FrankenMatt with former Saturday Night Live writer Matt Craig. He regularly performs in LA at UCB, iO West, and Second City Hollywood.

The Chicago Tribune said of Caeti,
"astonishingly deft at range of characters...a future rock star of comedy."
 Susan Messing is a New Jersey native and graduate of Northwestern University’s Theatre School. She has been an improviser and comedian for over twenty-five years and is one of the most fearless performers in the history of improvisation. She is is an alumna of the iO Theatre, Second City’s Mainstage, and a founding member of Chicago’s infamous Annoyance Theatre.

Susan created and has taught her curriculum at iO and iO West, The Annoyance Theatre, The Second City, and around the country. Susan is an adjunct instructor for DePaul University, The University of Chicago, and The School at Steppenwolf.


Her standup act with her puppet, Jolly, was featured at the HBO/US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, and on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and NBC’s Late Fridays. Her most impressive bit movie role was as a bad stripper in a halo brace in Let’s Go to Prison! You can see her every Thursday night in her critically acclaimed show, Messing with a Friend, now in its seventh year at The Annoyance Theatre. She has been delighted to participate in the TBS Just For Laughs Festival every year since its Chicago debut.

WHEW!!!! We are thrilled to have these rock stars of comedy right here in Tyler, Texas! This is a do not miss!

Thanks to Jamey Whitley who created and produced the East Texas Comedy Festival - now in it's third year!

Tyler Texas Bed and Breakfast-The Rosevine Inn-Best in East Texas

Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast 
Guess we have been so busy-got behind on the blog post! Sorry about that. Will try to do better!!
Activities abound in Tyler and surrounding areas always. Here we try to feature a few of them-but you know there is plenty to do if you just want to hang out at The Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast. Come check it out!
Okay here are some fun things to do and see and do!

May 15 Through  18
Suppose you're an attractive high school girl and you're not only a member of a large and unique family but your father is, in fact, one of the great pioneers of industrial efficiency.
Then suppose he decides, for no apparent reason, to apply his unorthodox methods to you and to the rest of your big family. The results are terribly embarrassing, funny and—it must be admitted—extremely effective! To Anne, however, the chief effect seems to be that of making them seem ridiculous to everyone else at school—especially to the boys!
Dad pushes ahead with better organization for his large and delightful family. He puts up a chart for the young people to initial after completing each household task, uses a rung as an imaginary bathtub to demonstrate how to take a really efficient bath and appoints a utilities officer to levy fines on wasters of electricity. While the situations are often uproarious, there's a serious reason. Dad has a heart condition which he's keeping secret. The children don't understand them.
Anne, the oldest, rebels. Both Dad and she are miserable at the lack of understanding between them. Then in a deft and moving scene, Dad becomes aware of how much Anne has grown up.

Always a shoppers dream!! And The Rosevine Inn is THE best
place to rest after a long day of shopping and walking (:
What started more than a century ago as a flea market has become home to some of the most exciting, cutting-edge home furnishings, antiques and collectibles that can be found anywhere. Over the past 150 years, lots of things have changed in the Original First Monday Park; but the genuine, down-home human relationships between vendors and shoppers are the reason people keep coming back. This is a place where you can slow down, visit and ask questions, talk to collectors and antique dealers and meet the artists and craftsmen who create one-of-a-kind items.
Learn more about the history of this Texas landmark. Then, make plans to join us for the next Trade Days weekend and enjoy a shopping experience like none other.

Summer is approaching quickly! Make a stay at
Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast
