Funnies Comedy Club is Coming to Bartlesville
By Tourism Industry Partner
Bartlesville, OK, October 17, 2011: After creating a whole new stand-up comedy scene in their
hometown of Stillwater, OK, longtime friends Rob Neville and Jared Cranke are expanding Funnies Comedy
Club to Bartlesville beginning Thursday, December 8, 2011. The shows will take place at the Hilton Garden Inn,
205 Southwest Frank Phillips Boulevard, and will begin at 8:30pm.
Neville and Cranke have been promoting comedy shows together for the last four years and recently
have found success in a series of monthly shows at the Quality Inn in Stillwater that started in January of 2011.
Since then, they have recently completed a run of 10 consecutive shows to rave reviews and entertaining nearly
1,000 audience members.
“These shows are a great way for real adults to have a night out on the town,” Neville says. “Get a
babysitter for a few hours and come have a laugh with us. We guarantee you will have a good time.”
Each show is approximately 90-105 minutes in length and normally consists of a headliner, feature
comedian and Neville, a nationally-touring comedian who hosts most of the shows. The show may contain some
adult language and content. Audience members must be 18 to enter and 21 to drink.
Brent Dawson, who was seen on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, will headline the first show with whitetrash
comedian Kyle Kubiak as a special guest. Tickets will be available November 1 at the Hilton Garden Inn or
online at www.myticketscene.com. Advance tickets will be only $10. Tickets purchased the day of the show will
be $12 and available at the door. Other dates will be announced soon. For more information, please visit

everything going on with the Funnies.
