Tandem…A Weekend for Two - February 12-14, 2016

Give your Valentine the gift of time!

Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage!

Helping couples get it right, get along, have fun and achieve a successful marriage!

2016 Tandem A Weekend for Two

Why a “laughter” approach? For one simple reason: to overcome the male objection to a seminar. Let’s be honest, a marriage seminar isn’t the first thing a guy thinks of when he thinks of “a fun way to spend the weekend.” We get that…familiar with the fact that women are usually much more open to discussing marital problems than their spouses, Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage is designed with an element of humor that appeals to couples, but is especially well-received by men.


    Tale of Two Brains
    The #1 Key to Incredible Sex
    How to Stay Married and Not Kill Anybody
    Why Does He/She Do That?

Relationship Resource Tool (Flag Page) provided for everyone!

A Tandem Couples Weekend Getaway for Two…
time to relax, talk and fall in love all over again.

Saturday Night Comedian
Taylor Mason

TAYLOR MASON is the anti-depressant who can be absorbed through the eyes and ears.
Taylor Mason’s quick wit, flawless delivery and polished material make him a hit with audiences of all ages. He is a ventriloquist, musician and stand-up comedian.

Taylor has carved out a career in comedy and entertainment that has taken him around the world and into living rooms across the U.S. for the past 25 years. He’s appeared on a myriad of television programs, YouTube videos, and other online viral videos. He has won awards, he’s played Carnegie Hall, he’s written a book, and once he did a show for children at his local public library!

There is no way to describe what he does, because combining ventriloquism, music and comedy is unique to Taylor Mason and quite literally needs to be seen to be believed.

Having graduated from The University of Illinois with a degree in agriculture (fertile training ground for any comedian!), followed by a master’s degree from The Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern Univeristy, Taylor Mason has never held a “real” job. His experience as a comedy writer and performer has taken him from The Second City Theater in Chicago to headlining gigs at every major comedy club across the country. He’s as comfortable writing and executing humor for corporate clients as he is doing a show for teens or children. He’s performed for countless church functions. He’s done bar mitzvahs and synagogue shows. he continues to sell out comedy clubs and is requested at college campuses. Has he done a show on a rollercoaster yet? No, but for the right price he would!

Taylor Mason stays out of the bedroom and out of the bathroom (which sets him apart from most comedy acts today) and concentrates on jokes and punch lines. He respects people’s differences and concentrates on getting laughs.

Does it sound old school? Only if music, laughter and the shared experience of sheer joy and excitement are out-of-date. For Taylor Mason these are calling cards as a comedian, and the pillars on which he has built an outstanding, consistent and truly American career as an entertainer.
