Kevin Farley is an entertainer to the core. He is a brother of late American comedian and actor Chris Farley. Kevin has been bringing his signature brand of upbeat entertainment to fans around the world for over three decades as an actor, filmmaker, podcaster and stand-up comedian. He will be performing his brand of “positive” stand-up comedy" in Williston on Friday, April 28 and Saturday April 29 at the Old Armory.

Kevin got his start studying at the famous Second City in Chicago. He studied at the same time as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Stephen Colbert. The improv evolved into doing stand up comedy. Soon after he starred in films such as Black Sheep (with his brother Chris) and The Waterboy (with Adam Sandler), and leading roles in An American Carol and White Knight. He has also made guest appearances on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Rules of Engagement, Just Shoot Me, and Comedy Central’s Drunk History to name a few.

Kevin has hosted many live shows and events and has been featured nationally on The Today Show, The View, Extra, Good Morning America and radio shows from coast to coast including Mad Max's Big Butt Morning Show on Dakota Country Z 96.1. You can currently find Kevin lending his voice to "F is for Family" on Netflix, on his podcasts "Kevin Farley on the Road," "Dry Bar Special" and "The Farley Farm" and performing stand-up comedy. 

I had a chance to visit with Kevin recently and he is excited to come to Williston. He has done stand-up comedy previously in Fargo and Bismarck, but this will be his first time to Williston.

Must be 21+ to attend. Individual tickets can be purchased in house at the River's Edge and include only the comedy show and a free drink at the Old Armory for $40. Prices for online sales include dinner at the River's Edge and the comedy show at the Old Armory for either April 28th or 29th. Dinner options include Chicken Caprese, Ribeye, or Teriyaki Salmon with a dessert of Raspberry Donut Cheesecake.

This is one show you don't want to miss. 3 Comedians! 2 great nights! Guest Opener 1 is Beka Barry. She's is not your average "chick-comic". Aggressive, uncompromising, and unapologetic, her brash style forces you to laugh as she shows a side of this world you may not have considered. Beka has appeared on "The Fugitive," was featured in Nick@Night's "Search For The Funniest Mom in America 2" was a semi-finalist in the prestigious 2000 & 2001 Seattle Comedy Competition, and was named "Northwest's Hottest Newcomer" by Comedy Connection. Guest opener 2 is TBA.

The comedy shows are brought to Williston by River's Edge Bar & Grill in partnership with Lochend Energy Services Inc. USA , Brigston Electric, and N2 Effects.
