'Screech' from 'Saved By the Bell' to perform comedy show in Albert Lea


One of the kids on the 1990s television show "Saved by the Bell" is going to do some grown-up comedy in Albert Lea, the Albert Lea Tribune reports.

Dustin Diamond, who first played Samuel "Screech" Powers on the Saturday morning NBC teen sitcom from 1989-1993 and reprised the role for two spinoffs, will be coming to the Land Between the Lakes Event Center in Albert Lea July 25 to do stand-up comedy.

Tickets for the show are $25, and $35 for a meet-and-greet with Diamond.

The show is suggested for mature audiences only.

In addition to his stand-up comedy, Diamond has appeared in several television shows and films over the years.

Most notably, he played himself in the David Spade comedy "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star," and competed in the reality TV shows "Celebrity Fit Club" and "Celebrity Boxing 2."
