John Davidson’s Club Sandwich

Summer ~ Fall 2024

If you haven’t been to Club Sandwich, you haven’t lived. This season, John has something extra special in store. Every show opens with his own version of New Hampshire’s clarion call,“Live Free or Die,” lyrics by Ernest Thompson and music by the legendary Art Harriman, and closes with a song for which John wrote the music and his pal Ernest wrote the lyrics, “Keep the Party Going.” The well-known TV host of Hollywood Squares and That’s Incredible!, and the recurring guest host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (80 evenings), is more than just a funny guy, he’s starred on the big screen and on stage and has a voice and energy that won’t quit.

Sitting on a comfy couch or rocking in a chair at Club Sandwich, you’ll laugh, you’ll remember when and you’ll leave wanting to seize the day. For more information, click here.
