Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Drew Hastings.
January 25th and 26th
Shows times 7:30 PM

Standing 6’6” tall, and clad in a well-tailored suit and trademark black horn-rimmed glasses, Drew Hastings is a commanding presence onstage, as he launches into a study of the human condition.

Hastings’ trademark comedy is both hilarious and self-deprecating. He believes that we are our own worst enemy ­—

“My middle name should be Versus…”

His angst about his failures as a human, real or perceived, are obvious.

 

Observational humor and commentary on American modern life is Drew’s creative wheelhouse.

“Why is it that when gay men act like women, they always seem to act like the kind of women no one really likes?”

Hastings is part stand-up comic, part raconteur and serious dramatic writer/performer.

Born in Casablanca, Morocco and raised in Ohio by a British mother, Drew brings to every performance a down-to-earth Midwest sensibility peppered with British aloofness and condescension. Elitist and populist, Hastings’ eye catches it all.

“Isn’t it ironic that the finest coffees in the world come from countries where no one has a reason to get up in the morning?”

Prior to becoming a comedian at age thirty-one, Drew¹s vocational endeavors included a trucking business, document shredding startup and a few ill-fated archaeological expeditions. A bona fide polo player in both Washington D.C. and Cincinnati, Drew’s passion was curtailed by a shoulder injury and a sudden change in finances.

Drew moved from Ohio to Los Angeles in the mid-90’s, where the entertainment industry took notice. His acting talent earned him a number of guest-starring roles in several Hollywood television pilots.

Hastings is regularly booked on network talk shows for personal appearances, and is a member of an elite group of performers to have received a standing ovation on “The Tonight Show.”

Hastings storied and colorful life has been the inspiration for several one-person shows. Most notably his fictitious Tony Robbins’ tinged character “Jack Freeman” of “The Business of Living” found an immediate cult following in Los Angeles.

“Jack” soon caught the attention of the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show, where the hilarious Freeman was introduced to a national audience.

Drew’s appearances were so well-received that he soon became a regular guest. In addition to his regular comedy touring, Drew also headlines on “The Bob and Tom Comedy All-stars Tour.”

Currently Hastings pens a weekly newspaper column and is finishing a compilation of humorous short stories.

Hastings is also a farmer, and owns and operates a cattle farm in southern Ohio. In this rural environment, Hastings has developed a large following of new fans who appreciate his eye for the humor in his fish out of water new life, as Drew regales his fans with true tales about farm living and the local characters he comes in contact with daily.

Drew’s current one-hour Comedy Central special, “Irked and Miffed,” debuted to over a million viewers on the network, and remains a top-ranked online download.

  • Cindy Kaza - Medium
    September 26, 2017 at 8:00 PM Cindy Kaza - Medium
    Cindy Kaza is an evidential medium.  Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium’s ability to bring through extremely specific evidence to the sitter. This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client’s loved ones in spirit.
     
    Cindy has been extremely intuitive since very early childhood.  At the age of 10 she had her first memorable experience with a spirit. Days after losing a childhood friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing next to her bed. At the time, she dismissed this experience and convinced herself it was just a dream.  It wasn’t until her early 20’s that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this “awakening” she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multi-faceted abilities as a psychic medium.  She began training not only in the United States but also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England. She believes in compassionately sharing her gift with others while also opening up others to the gifts they too possess and that everyone is inherently intuitive and able to feel Spirit!
