Cork to perform at Chamber banquet

BELOIT – The Chamber of Commerce will be hosting their annual banquet at 6 p.m. on Feb. 3 at the Down Under, 121 W. Court, Beloit.  The theme this year will be “Are You Ready for Some Football", and invitations will be sent soon. 

Bryan Cork will be the entertainment for the event. 

As laughter is said to be the best medicine and Cork has been doing his special form of healing for over twenty years. This strange and unusual journey started for Bryan as an actor. For a dozen years he did appearances as the Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel Comics.

"But alas, the demands of wearing spandex eventually took it’s toll," said Cork.  "You try wearing spandex when you are 35 and see how you look."

So Cork's career took a new direction. A comedy door opened up, and he crashed through it like he was running from the police.

Now Cork tours the country sharing his unique brand of clean humor and clever stories about deer hunting, tech support, and how Pictionary can ruin Thanksgiving.

Cork leaves his audience roaring with laughter. He claims scientific research has shown that his show will lower your cholesterol, whiten your teeth, and make your children anxious to help with chores around the house.

Table sponsorships for the banquet are available. Call the Chamber Office at 785-738-2717 or email beloitchamber@nckcn.com to reserve a table.
