I had the pleasure of seeing some great talent at Crackers Comedy Club in Indianapolis last night . There were 15 acts, each doing 5 minutes and I must say picking one was impossible. There was easily 4 or 5 comedians that were good enough to come out to the Boston Comedy Festival.
Since it was impossible to pick just one, we picked two comedians to represent the great state of Indianapolis. Here is some more information about them, taken from their websites. Let me add a note of thanks to all the great comedians who came out, and especially Ruth Anne and her awesome staff at Crackers Comedy Club.
Characters, voices, one liners, and time-tested monologues-comedian Brent Terhune is the embodiment of all these things and more. Not many comics can pull off Brent’s laid-back style of comedy and still remain just as absurd and funny, but equally relevant and relatable at the same time. He got his start in comedy in Indianapolis, Indiana and is currently studying Communication at the University of Indianapolis. He is also the co-host of the immensely popular podcast that is enjoyed by dozens of listeners, The Interweb Podshow. 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.
Since she started performing stand-up comedy in 2014, Rachael has quickly established herself as a funny, talented performer. Biting yet upbeat, her entertaining rebuke of the “Midwestern nice” attitude has led her to work with such comedians as Bobcat Goldthwait, Gilbert Gottfried, Christina Pazsitzky, Rich Vos, Emo Philips, Jimmy Pardo and Bill Burr. Based out of southern Indiana, she regularly tours the Midwest and has performed at comedy clubs including The Caravan in Louisville, KY, Morty’s in Indianapolis, IN, Crackers in Indianapolis, IN, Wiley’s in Dayton, OH, Go Bananas in Cincinnati, OH and The Comedy Attic in Bloomington, IN. She has been selected to perform at Gilda’s LaughFest, Crossroads Comedy Fest and has been featured on the nationally syndicated radio show Bob & Tom.
