On June 14, we'll feature Ken Evans. Bringing a boy-next-door persona to the stage, Ken has an observational style of comedy that relates to every audience member. His energy is electric and his act is very visual, bringing his comedy to life with his command of the stage.
The Orlando Sentinel said "Ken Evans' biting wit is like viewing life through broken glass..." Evans has appeared on NBC's "Ed", Caroline's Comedy Hour, SHOWTIME, "Law & Order," and NBC's "Last Comic Standing." He's been a studio guest of the Bob and Tom show and the Bob and Sherry national radio show. Ken Evans has also done his fair share of huge fundraisers on the national stage. Being a cancer survivor himself, he's the only comic to be chosen three times to perform at the annual prestigious "Laugh for the Cure" fundraiser and was also the main speaker for 1200 cancer survivors at the Henry Ford Theater in Detroit.
A truly seasoned veteran of comedy with over 28 years of comedy experience, Ken Evans has performed alongside such greats as Joan Rivers, Brian Regan, and Weird Al Yankovic, to name just a few.
