Entertainment will be presented by Marty Simpson visiting us from his home in South Carolina. Marty Simpson is an All-American football player, a sports radio talk show host and a national touring comedian
Marty garnered national recognition after becoming the winner of the 2012 Clean Comedy Challenge. Since that time, you may have seen Marty opening for Saturday Night Live's Dennis Miller, Tim Hawkins, Pauly Shore, and Last Comic Standing Winners, Jon Reep and John Heffron.
Today, Marty does indeed have that rare form of comedy that makes both young and old, tall and short.... laugh.
