Evening of Comedy with J.R. Brow & Chad Thornsberry

J.R. Brow went to college, became a standup comic, and eventually toured 49 states and 4 continents with his guitar in hand. His original standup comedy instantly won over young and old fans alike. Almost immediately, J.R. marched to the finals of the San Francisco Comedy Competition. He has opened for performers like Dana Carvey, Ray Romano, Bill Hicks, and Steven Wright. He's recently been featured on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" and CBS’s "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" as well as many other television spots along the way. Like the rarest of breeds, J.R. electrifies audiences with his high energy storytelling and spot-on mimicry. When his guitar comes into the act, the originality peaks with his unique musical prowess. Brow's comedy can be heard on his current CD, "Dumber By The Decade" and read in his upcoming memoir, "The Ancient Greeks Had Nothing On Me.

Chad Thornsberry was born in St. Louis, MO. From an early age he learned his family was blessed, and blessed him with humor, quick wit, and a love of storytelling. Chad’s unique comedic perspective awards audience the opportunity to laugh at the common, often unnoticed, occurrences in everyday life. Often referred to as a “great writer,” his straightforward style allows audiences to laugh with him and at him as they find the humor in themselves. With reflections ranging from growing up in a trailer park to observations as an English teacher and including a ‘life on the road,’ Chad’s satiric insights look at the pitfalls which make all of us human. With smart humor, in a conversational style, Chad has delighted audiences from the trailer park, throughout the Midwest and literally from coast to coast.
