The Tyler Salvation Army is trying something new to raise money to support its many programs for people who need help to get back on their feet.
Chantel Millin, the community and corporate relations coordinator, promises that Bean and Bailey are comedians who are both funny and family friendly.
“The entire community is invited to come out and enjoy a fun and friendly event full of laughter and perfect for the entire family,” Ms. Millin said in correspondence to the paper.
The promotional material bills Bean and Bailey as “a refreshing alternative in today’s field of comedy. Most refreshing is that their comedy is family friendly!”
Bradley Bean and Jackson Bailey first met when they were living in the same dorm at Carson-Newman College and started performing in comedy sketches and videos.
They have been honing their act as a comedy duo for the past 10 years — specializing in family-friendly comedy and performances that benefit Christian-based nonprofits.
On their website they state: “We believe that humor is a gift from God that brings people together. Laughter tightens bonds, helps rebuild relationships and it breaks down barriers so people can listen.”
The targets of their comedy include such wide-ranging topics as Walmart greeters, American history, love, dating, marriage, doughnuts, Michael Jackson and Elvis.
You can receive a preview of their comedy act on the Salvation Army’s website, www.salvationarmytyler.org, and Bailey and Bean’s website, www.beanandbailey.com
Tickets cost $10 and may be purchased at www.salvationarmytyler.org or at The Salvation Army facility.
