Mount Union College Religious Life Council to Host Beyond the Influence
April 14, 2008
The Mount Union College Religious Life Council will be holding Beyond the Influence Friday, April 18 at 10 p.m. in the Campus Grounds of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.
Beyond the Influence will feature the comic duo Bean and Bailey as well as Sound Off!, a newly formed Mount Union student music group. Refreshments will be provided.
Bean and Bailey have been performing their acoustic comedy full-time since 2001. Bradley Bean and Jackson Bailey met while students at Carson-Newman College in east Tennessee, and it was there that they began writing comedy and music together. After college, Bradley Bean taught 3rd grade public school for 4 years while Jackson Bailey worked for a local television station as a kids club host. In 2001 they left their “day jobs” and made the shift to become a full-time professional comedy act.
Bean and Bailey to date have performed their clean comedy at corporate events, church-related events, college campus events, comedy clubs, conferences, and cruise ships. They have entertained audiences across the United States and Canada. Most audiences tend to appreciate the banter between the songs as much as the songs themselves. Most defining of the act is that the songs and dialogue always place the steady, rational personality of Bean up against the spontaneous, endearing-but-ignorant personality of Bailey.
Bean and Bailey are excited to appear on The Comedy Bus DVD Series, appearing on three of these compilation comedy projects released nationally in 2008.
This public is invited to attend. Admission is $1 or two canned good items. All monetary donations received will go to support Relay for Life and all canned goods will be contributed to the Alliance Food Pantry. For more information, contact the Office of the Chaplain at (330) 823-2838.
