Comedian Tim Benker provides hilarious life lessons with An Idiot’s Guide to Fixing Stoopid at Metropolis December 11, 2017.


From Adam and Eve to Kim and Kanye all the way to Conway and Spicer…The Idiots Guide to Fixing Stooopid will uncover human daffiness in a colorful multi-media presentation and describe how being a dimwit or a dolt affects life around us. The show provides self-testing and analysis to help prevent “us” from entering the stupid portion of society. Whether it is Stooopidity in your neighborhood, in your office, in public office or in your Social Media Friends, the show supplies awareness and quick fixes on how you can help stop the spread of Stooopid.


Comedian Tim Benker is a veteran of Chicago stand-up comedy, having performed in 35 states opening for many well-known acts such as Jay Leno, Rosie O Donnell, Richard Lewis, Drew Carey and Walt Willey. Tim has also made himself useful in daylight hours by hosting morning radio in Las Vegas and Houston and produced a variety show around his alter ego “The Very Famous Lance Vegas”. A wise man once said, “If you can solve a problem that many are faced with, you can make a difference in the world.” Tim took on the daunting task of Fixing Stooopidity as it exists all over this great planet…and came up with the idea for this multi-media comedy show. Will this show make a difference in the world? Maybe, maybe not, but at least we can have some fun in the process.


An Idiot’s Guide to Fixing Stoopid featuring Tim Benker will be at Metropolis Monday, December 11, 2017, at 7:30pm. Tickets are $30, Stage Tables are $35. All tickets can be purchased at or by stopping by or calling the Box Office at 847.577.2121.
