Brian Atkinson performs at The Hobson in Kokomo, Indiana - featuring Leslie Battle, and headlining Adam Minnick for 2 Valentines weekend shows, Saturday February 17 at 7:00 and 9:30pm.
Brian Atkinson is a comedian, an all-around nice guy, and a horrible person. His guy next door look gives way to surprising twists – like when he provided voices for PBS Kids and acted in a Lifetime Movie Network movie, as a serial killer, in the same studio, on the same day. His voice might be the first thing you notice, but his confidence, and engaging storytelling will keep you laughing. Brian Atkinson makes jokes, but only the finest artisan, hand-crafted, farm-to-table-saw jokes.
