Comedy Night Out headlines Lewiston celebrations

The small town of Lewiston in northern Cache Valley is expected to jump from about 2,000 people to approximately 25,000 this weekend when the 2009 old-fashioned Independence Celebration is staged.Things begin early with something new this year: national comedy headliner, now a local resident, Brad Bonar, Jr. will be at the Lewiston Theater the night of Thursday, July 2nd. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Monday, Bonar said he sold a business 12 years ago to do what he likes to do best, “stand up comedy and magic,” Bonar explained. “I brought one of my best friends, a comedian friend of mine, SpiritWalker,” Bonar continued. “He’s 100% Apache Indian and has some great comedy that he brings. He’s going to be coming out and opening the show for me.”He has a whole routine he does about ‘You might be a red man.’ You have the Jeff Foxworthy ‘You might be a red neck,’ so he has his own twist on it. ‘If every time you go to a dance and it starts to rain outside, you might be a red man.’ So he has some great comedy humor about being an Indian and growing up in Roswell, New Mexico.””Comedy Night Out” starts at 7 p.m. Thursday and tickets are $8. Bonar is also Assistant Parade Chairman and the Lewiston parade starts Saturday at 9:15 a.m. Among the other Saturday events are Patriot Border Run at 7 a.m. and a patriotic meeting at 11:30 with Congressman Rob Bishop, R-UT, as keynote speaker.
