BAREFOOT COMEDY: BEGNT WASHINGTON

January 23, 2019 | 8 p.m.

Originally from Utah, Bengt grew up the youngest son in a small Mormon family (7 kids) in a large Utah town (2000 people). At nineteen he was given a ten speed bike, two polyester suits and a plane ticket to Seattle Washington where he served his two year tour of religious duty as a missionary for the LDS (Mormon) church. He returned home two years later with buns of steel and life experiences that would translate into twenty minutes of solid comedy material. He began doing standup comedy full time in 1997. In 2001 Bengt won the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition. He has since appeared on Comedy Central‘s Live at Gotham, the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and on Conan on TBS. He has performed in forty states, on four continents, at the 2002 Winter Olympics and in Canada.
