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.
