Brent Terhune Returns to Bloomington!

Special Event

Brent Terhune Returns to Bloomington!

Brent Terhune is a nationally-touring stand-up comedian, writer, and podcaster. His brand new comedy album, Bluff Creek, rocketed to #1 on iTunes following in the footsteps of his previous effort, Mr. Turkey, which also went to #1 on iTunes.

Brent got his start in stand-up comedy in Indianapolis, Indiana at the age of 16. Most people would describe him as a white man, but according to Brent he “got the black knocked off of him at an early age when he refused to clean up his room” and he is now doomed to walk the earth as a pale redhead or as he likes to call himself a real “OG” or Original Ginger. Not many comics can pull off Brent’s laid-back style of comedy and still remain just as absurd, relevant, and funny as he is. Whether talking about the everyday struggles of being a redhead, life as a college student and radio DJ, or his off-the-wall Uncle Frank and family, Brent is sure to keep you laughing well after he’s left the stage.

Characters, voices, one liners, and time-tested monologues - Brent Terhune is the embodiment of all these things and more. Currently, Brent is a writer for the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show (he’s been on the show, too) as well as the co-host of the immensely popular podcast that is enjoyed by dozens of listeners, The Interweb Podshow. He’s the creator, writer, and illustrator of the Uncle Frank comic strip and he’s performed at the Iowa Comedy Festival, Gilda’s Laugh Fest, and the Cleveland Comedy Festival (runner up 2012), the Limestone Comedy Festival, and the Laugh Your Ashville Off Comedy Festival.

Some know Brent Terhune as the loveable clean-comedy stand up from Indianapolis who works the road 45 weeks per year. Others only know him as “The Redneck Y’all Just Love to Hate” who’s always pissed off and raising an ’emotional support beer’ to his president (and still YOUR president) Donald J. Trump. Either way, Brent is taking Twitter by storm, one pair of Oakleys at a time from his backyard, the garage and the front seat of his 2020 Big Ass Truck.

Just named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch, Brent has accumulated over 55 million video views across social media with his satirical character. His not-so-obvious delivery can be described along the lines of a blue collar Colbert Report. If you aren’t paying attention to the rapid-fire tongue-in-cheek jokes or the subtle background changes in his videos, you may miss the satire completely. Brent’s fans love to call out angry Liberals and Republicans alike in the comments: “You’ve Been Terhuned!!” In addition to hosting two of his own podcasts, you can catch Brent as a regular correspondent on Ken Jeong and Joel McHale’s Pandemic Podcast.

Brent started doing stand up comedy in high school at the age of sixteen. He studied electronic media (radio) and public relations in college and has been writing daily topical jokes and news breakdowns for the nationally-syndicated Bob & Tom Show for over ten years. Brent’s debut comedy album, Mr. Turkey, debuted at number one on the iTunes charts and is played in heavy rotation at SIRIUS XM. His sophomore album, Bluff Creek, will be released worldwide on 10/02/2020 with On Tour Records. If you like clean comedy, stay tuned for Brent’s half hour special recorded for DryBar in Salt Lake City on the last day before the pandemic.
