Comedians Bengt Washburn

Bengt (pronounced bent) Washburn was born into a large Mormon family and raised in a small Mormon town in Utah. From age 19-21, he was a Mormon Missionary.Bengt received BFA and MFA degrees in fine art, leaving him straddled with student loans, unqualified for corporate work and overqualified for minimum wage jobs. After a short visual-art career, Bengt landed on the road as a full-time stand -up comedian in 1997. Always fresh, an evening with Bengt presents the world as seen through the eyes of a small town Mormon man gone slightly awry. Bengt is unique and universal, achieving the quirky while remaining accessible. Described as ‘an intellectual with an imp’s perspective’, his musing are clever, silly poignant, pointed, irreverent, philosophical, sophomoric, and hilarious. Recently, Bengt’s comedy was good enough to win the 2001 San Francisco Comedy Competition. The Junction Weekly says, “Bengt clearly killed! Both shows. The crowd even requested encores…”
