So you are looking for a way to make your event one that will be talked about for years to come. You want your guests to not just be entertained, but to have the time of their lives! Suddenly you have a brilliant idea….you’ll hire some professional entertainment. After all, if anyone knows how to inspire a good time, it’s a professional, right? You start googling local magicians, comedians, but run into a new problem. You don’t know what entertainment is a good fit for your event.
Recently my colleague Jamison and I went to Auburn Hills for Fiat-Chrysler Automotive’s 25th Celebration of being in their new building. It was a really fun event to be a part of: there were live bands, roving super heroes, star war characters, and green screen photos. They even had a Lego Land for kids to build different cars to race. We helped book airbrush and glitter tattoo artists, face painters and roving magicians.
Recently my barber retired. If you don’t go to a specific barber or have a specific hairstylist, you probably don’t understand the full weight of what I just said. The man who has held a razor to my head for the last 10 years just decided he was done cutting hair.
I am pretty lost. I can’t trust some random stranger to cut my hair. I’ve seen Sweeney Todd, I know the risks. So what am I going to do?
Every Saturday night my wife and I have a date night. I don’t want to hear any “awws,” but it is normally the highlight of my week. The cell phones are put away, work is a forbidden topic of discussion, and the kids are someone else’s problem (joking…kind of). It is just me, my wife, and a delicious dinner.
Goonie’s Comedy Club will be hosting 3 nights of special shows with Hannibal Buress this coming week at Goonie’s Comedy Club in Rochester, MN. The last time Hannibal visited the club was in 2008.

Brad Wenzel is most known for his offbeat, one-liner comedy. His youth, unique writing style, and dry delivery set him apart from many up-and-coming comedians. Audience members have told him he sounds like Bill Clinton, Jimmy Stewart, and JFK. In short, he sounds weird. KnightArts.com described his act as, “not so much clean in content as very wholesome in its delivery.”
