Winner of "The Funniest Person in the
Military" brings "In Your Face Silliness!"
Kevin Williams performs at Penguin's Comedy Club
July 26th through 28th
 
BETTENDORF, IA, July 17, 2007 - Kevin Williams is one of the most creative
and brightest comedians performing today. Born and raised in Chicago, Kevin's
brand of humor is best described as "In your face silliness!" In fact, he prides
himself in being able to entertain diverse audiences. 

Kevin began
performing comedy while serving in the U.S. Coast Guard. He won "The Funniest
Person in the Military" comedy contest held in New York. He has taken his act
overseas performing in Germany and Japan.

See!"

 
Kevin's comedy is smart, inventive and perfectly paced. All of his
material is presented with his own slant, from topics unseen to those tread
upon, but rediscovered anew. From brutal personal experiences to light-hearted
whimsical farce, Kevin's comedy is a true dichotomy. As soon as he hits the
stage, Kevin captures and audience and allows them to laugh as they view the
world from his own perverse perspective.

The 3rd annual Hawgstock Motorcycle Rally in Winterset, Iowa is the upcoming weekend of August 23-26, 2007. It will be celebrating one of its founders 50th birthday. 

 

ImageIT'S MY PARTY, AND I'LL BARK IF I WANT TO

Dog birthday parties are the latest trend in pet ownership. It was recently reported that over 70,000 pets in the United States have had a birthday party thrown for them by their owners, and this "pet party trend" has taken off in other countries as well, including China, Japan, and England.

According to the American Veterinarian Medical Association, there are 73 million dogs owned in the United States, and 74% of dog owners consider their pet as a child and/or family member, so this trend of dog birthday parties is expected to grow.
