LINCOLN CITY — Chinook Winds Casino Resort is excited to welcome back the popular Comedy on the Coast event safely. The show, which takes place at 8 p.m. today (Friday) and Saturday, is now in the Concerts by the Sea Showroom, where seating is spaced out with a maximum of four guests per table.
Kevin Bozeman headlines this weekend’s comedy show. Joining him is Tom Clark, with host Reena Calm. Tickets are $15 each. Reserve seats by visiting www.chinookwindscasino.com or calling 1-888-624-6228. Temperature checks and masks are required, and the casino is non-smoking with a smoking-room available upstairs in a convention room. For this 21-and-over event, doors will open at 7 p.m. with a no-host bar.
Inspired by nights on the couch watching Def Comedy Jam and challenged by his roommate, Bozeman decided to try the “Open-Mic Night” in Madison, Wis. in 1999. “I always was the guy who could make people laugh, and let’s be honest, I had nothing better going on,” he said.
Thirteen years later he is still going on stage, and he has found the job that fit his requirements. With a smooth and clever style, a great smile and a contagious laugh, Bozeman has been entertaining in clubs and colleges across the country. In 2000, he won the Midwest region of the HBO Comedy Competition and flew to Los Angeles to compete as a finalist. He performed on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend in 2003, and finished second in the Boston Comedy Competition in 2005. He was a semi-finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2010.
Tom Clark has appeared on such shows as TBS’s Conan, CBS’s Late Late Show, The Bob & Tom Radio Show and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. He has traveled coast to coast doing stand up and has performed internationally as part of New Faces at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and on The Main Stage at The Capetown Comedy Festival in South Africa. Clark is also an actor and has appeared on such shows as NBC’s Outsourced, TNT’s The Closer, and the Hallmark made for TV movie The Wish List. After landing the role on Outsourced, director Ken Kwapis invited Clark to be in the Drew Barrymore movie, Big Miracle. You can also see Clark in Columbia Pictures horror comedy Freaks of Nature.
Reena Calm became one of the most respected and requested comedians in the Midwest and is now a nationally touring headliner. Pulling from a lifetime of questionable choices, her material is autobiographical, silly, and charmingly inappropriate. Living out of a tricked-out Prius, this pun-slinger travels the country on her signature #Calmedy tours. She’s on a mission to make people laugh in all 50 States (just a few left to go) and she says she’s only been arrested in one of them. She’s opened for legends like Arsenio Hall, Laurie Kilmartin, and Eddie Pepitone, to name a few.
