Characters, voices, one-liners and time-tested monologues – comedian Brent Terhune is the embodiment of all these things and more. Few comics can pull off Brent’s laid-back style of comedy while remaining just as absurd and funny but equally relevant and relatable at the same time. The Indianapolis native is a writer for the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show (heard locally mornings on Rock 106.5 FM), has had two comedy albums debut at No. 1 on iTunes and has made numerous TV appearances. Named to Variety magazine’s “10 Comedians to Watch” list in 2020, he currently has nearly 400,000 Twitter followers and over 40,000 YouTube subscribers.

Nick Hoff is a nationally touring stand-up comedian whose album “Baby Daddy” hit #1 on the iTunes comedy charts. He has been on MTV, SiriusXM, and can often be seen in commercials for Miller Lite, Pepsi and Amazon where Nick has been cast by top directors in the business including Peter Farrelly, Craig Gillespie, James Mangold and Philip Seymour Hoffman. He has been a comedy writer for Life & Style magazine, as well as a featured act in Netflix’s Wild West Comedy Festival.

Nick was hand-picked by Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy to open for them on their critically acclaimed “We’ve Been Thinking” Tour.  He has headlined the “Pink Ribbon Comedy Tour” which made stops in 40 cities doing 65 shows all raising money for breast cancer research.  He was also part of the “Walk of Shame” national comedy tour, which was not quite so noble a cause.
