(Casper Events Center)

CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper Events Center announced on Monday a show called “The Chad Comedy Hour” which will perform at 8 pm Thursday, Aug. 20.

“This night of comedy will feature comedian, armchair philosopher, musician, and observational humorist Chad Prather along with Casper’s own Chad Lore,” the announcement states.

Prather is a “fast-talking combination of Lewis Grizzard and Jeff Foxworthy” and is “often referred to as ‘the modern day Will Rogers,'” the announcement says.

“Originally from Augusta, GA Chad now calls the Fort Worth, TX area home,” the Events Center adds. “He grew up working with horses (an industry he is actively involved in) and is often recognized by his ever-present cowboy hat. His social media viral video are counted in the hundreds of millions.”

“Many recognize him from his fast talking, rapid fire rants from the front seat of his truck. CNN has labeled him the ‘Pick-up Pundit’ and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has called Prather, ‘supernaturally articulate.’ He is known for his comedic family stories told from an adult perspective onstage.”

Lore is a Casper musician and the Events Center says he is known as “Wyoming’s One Man Band.”

“He is hard to classify because he pretty much does everything with his music, from acoustic folk to electric rock,” the Events Center says. “If you are looking for a well-rounded musician, Chad’s your man.”

“Chad Lore’s live shows are like no show you have ever seen before. He will surprise you with unexpected elements, like his tap shoes or his bottle slide guitar playing. His music is highly improved by his uniqueness and originality, and his sense of humor will keep you interested and laughing in between songs.”

Lore said in the release: “I don’t tell jokes. I just tell the truth and people can’t believe it.”
