Comedians to perform on consecutive Thursdays at LCSC
Two comedic performances have been scheduled by the Lewis-Clark State College’s Warrior Entertainment Board and both performances are free and open to the public.
Josh Sneed will perform this Thursday at 7 p.m., while Robert Channing will take stage on Dec. 6 at 8 p.m., both at the Williams Conference Center on the LCSC campus.
Sneed has opened for Dave Chappelle, Dane Cook, and Dave Attell and is considered a rising young comic.
Sneed filmed a 30-minute special for Comedy Central, “Comedy Central Presents: Josh Sneed” that aired on March 30 of this year. He’s also been seen on “Premium Blend” on Comedy Central, and was selected by the network in 2006 to perform in the inaugural South Beach Comedy Festival. In November of 2006, Josh placed sixth in the Sierra Mist/MySpace Stand-up or Sit Down Challenge out of more than 2,000 entrants.
In 2004, Sneed performed at the Just For Laugh's Montreal Comedy Festival in the “New Faces of Comedy” group. Sneed can also be found performing in large venue theaters across the country as an opening act for the various members of “The Blue Collar Comedy Tour,” and has made several appearances on “The Bob & Tom Show.”
His first solo comedy CD, “A Shout Out To My Peeps”, is receiving high praise from fans and critics across the country, and receives regular airplay on XM and Sirius satellite radio. In 2003, Sneed was chosen as 1 of only 10 finalists in Comedy Central’s “Laugh Riots” competition.
Channing, who is promoted as the “World’s Foremost Mind Reader Hypnotist and Psychic Entertainer,” has more than 2,000 live performances to his credit.
Channing is know for covering his eyes with two coins and then taping them to his head with rows of thick, dark tape. Then a thick blindfold is placed over that to make sure he can’t see. He is then handed a bowl stuffed with questions from the audience. Without looking at the questions ahead of time, Channing somehow reads the questions – and the minds of the audience — and answers the questions.
Channing’s dramatic yet up-beat program masterfully illustrates the strange and incredible mysteries of the mind.
No information is ever given to Robert before the performance. The names, numbers, and innermost thoughts that he reveals are those actually held in the minds of the audience – all strangers to him.
