AMP Comedy: Bengt Washburn & Robert Baril


Bengt Washburn takes on moments and mishaps from his life with cleverness and side-splitting hilarity. From stories about growing up in a Mormon family, to wooing his wife while living in a tent, to failing at German but perfecting a German accent, his humor is equal parts smart and self-deprecating. A winner of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, Washburn has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Live at Gotham on Comedy Central, and Conan.

And yes, Bengt Washburn knows his name is weird. He feels worse for his brother Tafeth.

A philosophy and political science major in college, Robert Baril opens the show with his trademark brand of smart, lacerating humor. In addition to the most talked-about issues of the day, Baril draws on his experiences as a substitute teacher for his material on the educational system, children, and society at large.
