Comedian Vic Henley appears at Bernies After Hours

Nov. 7, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Comedian Vic Henley is set to perform at Western Michigan University Thursday, Nov. 14, beginning at 9 p.m.

Henley will be playing at in the East Ballroom of the Bernhard Center as part of the Bernie's After Hours series sponsored by the Campus Activities Board. Tickets will be available at the door, starting one-half hour before the show begins. Admission is $1 with WMU student ID, $2 without.

Using his Southern "good ol' boy" persona to first charm his audience, Henley wins them over entirely with his well-crafted humor. His improvisational ability, quick wit, and high energy has earned him the reputation as one of the country's fastest rising comedians. Henley's show covers a variety of topics including current events, sports, religion, relationships and politics.

A native of Oxford, Ala., Henley graduated from Auburn University and headed to Phoenix for a career as a stockbroker. His attention turned from finance to funnies when he entered and won a
comedy contest at a local nightclub. He began working the comedy club circuit and moved to New York, which led to his first television appearance on the CBS Morning Program. From there, he had
numerous appearances on Star Search, Showtime's Comedy Club Network, A&E'S Evening at the Improv, Caroline 's Comedy Hour, MTV's Funny Papers, and Stand-up Spotlight with Rosie 0 'Donnell.
