There’s no better time to enjoy a night of pure rolling-on-the-floor humor than April Fool’s Day and Hamley’s Slickfork Saloon is exactly the place to get it.
Hamley’s welcomes Brooks Wheelan to the Slickfork Saloon at Hamley’s on April 1 to present an evening of laughs. Wheelan has a remarkable résumé for both acting and comedy and has achieved more fame than any other comic to hit the stage in Pendleton.
Wheelan was a cast member as well as a writer for Saturday Night Live and has been a guest on CONAN, Late Night with Seth Meyers and numerous Comedy Central shows. He has released his own comedy album and a Comedy Central Half Hour special. Rolling Stone named Wheelan as one the Top 45 Acts of Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in 2014.
Wheelan’s acting career includes Disney’s Big Hero series, Netflix’s I Think You Should Leave, HBO’s Girls and the CBS series Hawaii Five-0. He hosted his own series of comedic travel vlogs called Travels and Such that aired on All Things Comedy.
Besides doing stand-up, Wheelan is hosting a popular podcast called Entry Level with Brooks Wheelan where he interviews other celebrities – mostly comics – about the horrendous jobs they held before they became successful and their dismal, dangerous, yet hilarious, experiences. The podcast was recently recognized by POPSUGAR as one of the 25 Best Comedy Podcasts of 2023.
