Gesa Power House Theatre invites you ring in the New Year with comedy by Brad Upton, starting at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 31, 2022 and finishing with a New Year’s toast at 9:00 p.m.
If the Pacific Northwest had a Mt. Rushmore of Comedy, this man’s head would be on it. With more than 30 years of experience in comedy, Brad Upton performs all over the world, and opens for some of the biggest names in show business, including the legendary Johnny Mathis.
Brad Upton was a 4th grade teacher and high school track coach (at Pasco High School) when he stepped on stage for the very first time in September of 1984 and he’s never looked back. He quickly rose through the stand-up comedy ranks making numerous television appearances and headlining comedy clubs from coast-to-coast.
In June of 2018 Brad went viral around the world. Dry Bar Comedy posted a video on Facebook and it had 36 million views in 10 days. They quickly followed with another and they combined for 47 million views in 11 days! His CD shot to Number 1 on the iTunes Comedy chart, and Brad’s Dry Bar Comedy videos currently have a combined 170 million views!
Although his comedy career keeps him busy, each year Brad takes time off for one of his other passions: coaching track and field. He recently coached the fastest high school 100 and 300 hurdlers in Washington state. Both set school records and his 300 hurdler went on to become state champion!
Brad’s latest comedy album, Brad Uptonogood is heard regularly on Sirius Satellite Radio, and he recently released his first DVD, Brad Upton, Live from the 509.
