Comedy at the Kennedy Center: Brooks Wheelan

Loading the player...

Enjoy an evening of comedy on the Millennium Stage with Brooks Wheelan. A self-proclaimed “chill dude from Iowa,” Wheelan attended University of Iowa and got a biomedical engineering degree before pursuing comedy. His first album, This Is Cool, Right?, debuted as the #1 comedy album on iTunes in January 2015 to rave reviews, with The A.V. Club describing it as absurd and honest, saying, “Wheelan is a considerable talent with a unique voice and perspective.” Comedian Max Rosenblum will open the show. This program contains mature themes and strong language. It will not be streamed live or archived. Free general admission tickets will be distributed in the States Gallery starting at approximately 5:30 p.m., up to two tickets per person.
