Nationally-touring comedian & storyteller, Lonnie Bruhn, finally returns to Spokane to what he describes, as his home away from home. After what has been a long seven-year absence, Bruhn will take to the stage to perform his new uncensored one-man show, “Still Standing”
Lonnie Bruhn, who aired on NBC’S, “LAST COMIC STANDING” season 9 is no stranger when it comes to performing controversial and provocative routines, nor is he unfamiliar with diversity, as he himself was born with Cerebral Palsy.
Bruhn has been deemed one of the most honest storytellers in the N.W., and been performing comedy for more than 25 years. He took to the stage for the first time when he was only 17 years old! Then in just two short years, Lonnie became the youngest comedian to win the Portland Laugh off at the age of 19.
If you have never seen one of Bruhn's performances, you will likely never forget the experience. He simply sticks with you. Unlike any other comedian, his unique style of comedic storytelling is candidly honest, uncensored, and edgy.
What truly makes Lonnie stand out, however, is that he purposely invokes emotion into his act. Bruhn's true stories unleash both hilarity and genuine vulnerability. He surrenders a humbling naked truth while still finding a way to successfully balance both humor and emotions. With his laid back conversational style, he draws a real connection that truly strikes a chord in all of us.
Bruhn explains it best, "Our emotions of laughter and humility go hand and hand. Life harbors both; so why should my act be any different."
