Headliner: Bengt Washburn
 
Bio: Bengt Washburn was born in Salt Lake City, Utah but grew up in a large Utah town (1,200 people) as the fifth child in a small Mormon family (7 children). Bengt is married to an officer in the United States Air force. They have lived in 6 different cities over the last eleven years. Most recently he moved to Springfield, Virginia (Washington D.C.) after living in Stuttgart, Germany for 3 years. 
 
Bengt is a former winner of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition. He has been seen on The Late Late Show with Craig Fergusen, Live at Gotham on Comedy Central and most recently Conan on TBS. He was invited to perform at the Vancouver International Comedy Festival, The Boston Comedy Festival, the Aspen Laff Festival and Gilda’s Laugh Fest in Grand Rapids, Michigan. 
 
He’s been heard on NPR, PRI and Bob and Tom. All three of his comedy Cd’s can be heard playing on XM Sirius radio. His fourth comedy CD “Bengt Over in Europe” will be released with Stand Up Records in the Fall of 2023.  
 
Most people who know him would say Bengt is a logistically impaired ditz, but his comedy is described as intelligent, surprisingly universal considering the content matter and profoundly funny. The Monterey County Weekly says: “Washburn is a truly hilarious comedian” 
 
Feature: Bryan Morton
 
Bio: Bryan Morton is a Tennessee based stand-up comedian. In 2017, he was named Funniest of the Tri-Cities. He has been sharing stories, to the delight of audiences all over the Southeast of his life as a long-in-the-tooth, empty-nest, divorced comedian, who really should join a gym. He is a staple at Blue Ridge Comedy Club, in Bristol, Tennessee. Bryan has featured for Tim Dillon, Joe Zimmerman, and Chris Kattan. 
 
Bryan has been dabbling in comedy for 10 years, but the last 3 years have seen him jump into performing comedy with both feet, quickly gaining the reputation as a must-see comedian on the rise.
