  • Brent Terhune – 10pm Thursday, November 15th

    Brent Terhune got his start in stand-up comedy in Indianapolis, Indiana at the age of 16. In 2012 Brent placed 2nd in the Cleveland Comedy Festival Contest. Since then he has become a nationally touring headliner and a writer for the Bob and Tom Show. In 2015, Brent put out a comedy album, “Mr. Turkey” that hit #1 on the iTunes charts. Not many comics can pull off Brent’s laid-back style of comedy and still remain just as absurd, relevant, and funny as he is. Whether talking about the everyday struggles of being a redhead, life as a college student and radio DJ, or his off-the-wall Uncle Frank and family, Brent is sure to keep you laughing well after he’s left the stage.
