JR Brow is a comedy composer who draws from his eclectic nineteen year collection of jokes, impressions, music, and characters to customize an experience that cannot be described with any one genre. Covering relationships, politics, religion, current events and pop culture, with topics ranging from Green Day to rednecks; JR expertly blends seemingly opposing subjects into a hilarious mix. Brow is one of a few comics to please audiences of every state; an accomplishment that speaks to his range and ability to connect with any crowd.

After seeing his act it is clear why JR has been honored in the comedy world as a finalist in San Francisco's prestigious International Comedy Competition and selected as a stand out in HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. Brow is proud to have traveled to such faraway places as Baghdad, Kuwait, Dubai, Afghanistan, Gitmo, and Italy - performing shows for U.S. military troops in desperate need of entertainment. He has also shared the stage with comedians such as Bill Hicks, Ray Romano, Wanda Sykes, Kathleen Madigan, and has been requested to perform with legendary musical acts like The Monkees and Earth Wind & Fire, just to name a few. JR Brow stands out in the comedy game "like a grain of rice in a bowl of black beans."

OTHER GREAT SHOWS!

  • Dwight York
    August 19, 2016 at 8:00 PM Dwight York

    “I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until York says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.

    Dwight York performs at many of the nation’s top comedy clubs and every summer headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has appeared at the Great American Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest. In October of 2014, he placed 2nd at the Laughlin Laugh Fest.

    York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. York’s CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy Channel and was rated a “top ten comedy release of the year” by The Serious Comedy Site. Laffspin Magazine says that Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a  compliment to all three master comics.
