An Evening of Mostly-Clean Comedy V

Mark Sweeney – As the oldest of six children, Mark Sweeney learned early that funny gets attention. A former Marine, Mark spent four years exploring the globe with unbridled enthusiasm. After one open mic, he became a comedian and finally became the funniest guy in his price range. While in L.A., he did episodes of Boston Public, The Visitor and Days of Our Lives. He's been featured in several movies such as Klllshot, Running Mates and Saving Grace P. Jones. His autobiography "Court Jester: The making of a comedian" is the story of his rise and struggles all the way to the lower middle class. It has reached #6,542 on the best seller list and is moving up like a rocket. From the plains of the Midwest to Kyrgyzstan, Iraq, and Afghanistan, he has been around spreading his brand of love where ever he goes.
Kevin Patterson - Deciding that it would be easier to get on stage and make people laugh than get a real job, Kevin Patterson has been honing his craft all across the Midwest. With a guy next-door quality, Kevin is the friend everyone wants to have. His ability to share his life with a bit of self-deprecation and realism ensures an entertaining show every time!
Tom Shelton – Having spent over 50 years on the planet and 30 years in the corporate world, Tom Shelton is just as amazed and frustrated by everyday life as you are. He sees and comments on the mundane and inane is a way that lets you know that you are not alone. Tom is back to host the 5th Evening of Mostly Clean Comedy.
