Court Jesters Comedy Basketball Team to appear at UMFK

October 13, 2006

NR06092

The University of Maine at Fort Kent will host the Court Jesters comedy basketball team on Friday, October 27 at 7 p.m. in the UMFK Sports Center.

The game is open to the public. Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children. UMFK students are free and UMFK staff and faculty is $1.

Like the Harlem Globetrotters, the Court Jesters, led by Andrew Eckman, former general manager of the Harlem Wizards and Harlem Rockets, are dedicated to providing wholesome entertainment for the whole family.

The Jesters are a group of highly-talented former college and professional basketball players with great showmanship skills. They are great with children and they make themselves available for signing autographs and interacting with the audience.

The Jesters will play the County All-Stars, a team comprised of local talent. It should be guaranteed laughs for everyone.
