Tour FAQs
  • How do I get schedule information on specific shows?

    We make it easy. The calendar and menu of events are categorized by genre and region, right here on our site.

  • Why do entertainers perform for the military?

    Performers need to perform. It's in their DNA. Plus, going on tour with Armed Forces Entertainment is an opportunity for artists to give back and honor the sacrifices deployed servicemembers and their families make on behalf of our country. For up-and-coming artists, touring with AFE is a great way to build an audience. For established artists, it's an up-close-and-personal way to say thanks to fans.

  • How much do tickets cost?

    It's FREE to attend every Armed Forces Entertainment show. Every single show, every single time.

  • Why are there occasional schedule changes?

    Sometimes emergencies and personal challenges pop up for scheduled artists. Add the uncertainty of world politics, and tour agendas inevitably shift. We rush the updates to the effected venue and make changes to the online show schedule as quickly as possible. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen, and we're sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Can I invite non-military people to AFE events?

    It depends on the rules of your installation. In general, yes, non-military guests are allowed at AFE shows. But military personnel are our priority.

Michael Winslow

Michael Winslow’s first professional performance was at Tulagi, a club and theatre in Boulder, Colorado, famous for hosting famous acts like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, and Tommy Bolin. After receiving a standing ovation for his vocal portrayal of Hendrix’s “Purple Haze,” he knew he had found his calling as an entertainer.

After moving to Venice Beach, Winslow auditioned to be a contestant on the “Gong Show” hosted by Chuck Barris. His winnings from the show eventually allowed him to move to Los Angeles, where he performed at local comedy clubs, eventually earning a spot in the famous “An Evening at the Improv” with the support of Budd Friedman.

In 1984, director Hugh Wilson and producer Paul Maslansky came to see Winslow perform at the Long Beach Theater, where he was opening for Count Basie & His Orchestra. After seeing Winslow’s impressive performance, they wrote him into the script of “Police Academy;” he went on to star in all seven movies in the franchise.

He went on to play a part in Mel Brooks’ movie “Spaceballs,” which cemented his status as a unique comedian—an artist with a special talent for making entire families laugh. He was also cast as a voice actor in the iconic hit movie “Gremlins,” where he gave his voice to Stripe, the evil leader of the gremlins.

Winslow has provided voiceovers for rides at Disney and Universal Studios, including “Back to the Future” and “Terminator.” His voice was also featured in popular TV shows, like “Robot Chicken” and “Family Guy,” as well as in commercials for GEICO.

A master of vocal gymnastics, Winslow can imitate over 1,000 sound effects using his voice alone. Whether he is recreating the frenzy of Jimi Hendrix playing the guitar or the roar of a jet plane, his talent is remarkable, and his versatility is admirable and enjoyable for all ages!
