Lamar, CO (November 13, 2013) – Friday, November 1st, the Lamar Chamber of Commerce Honkers, Two for the Road Entertainment and the Lamar Eagles hosted another great night of comedy at the Lamar Eagles Aerie in Lamar, CO.

Following a dinner of a tasty pulled pork sandwich provided by the Lamar Eagles, the three talented entertainers, which included the two features, Kevin Bennett and Jill Tasei, along with headliner Eugene Kenny who were brought down from the Front Range by Two for the Road Entertainment, got the house laughing and kept everyone entertained and engaged throughout the evening. After the comedians finished a stellar performance, there was music and dancing provided by DJ Mark Encinias, one of the newest Honker members. During the dance there were give-a-ways, and prizes presented for best costumes.

It has been an ongoing mission for the Honkers to get a new, portable PA/Sound System for the Lamar Chamber. With the proceeds from this event it appears that dream will become a reality. They will be able to buy a nice, basic portable system that should meet the needs of the Chamber. The Honkers want to buy a few additional accessories to compliment the new sound system, including remote microphones, a remote headset microphone, and a portable stand for the mixer unit. If anyone would like, they can make a donation at the Lamar Chamber to help offset these costs.

The Honkers and the Lamar Eagles are considering the end of January or the first part of February to host the next comedy night, and Elliot Wollsey, a crowd favorite, may be returning to headline this event in early 2014.

The Honkers would like to thank the Holiday Motel for providing a generous discount on the rooms for the talent and promoters, the Lamar Eagles for providing a spacious, comfortable venue, a great meal and a donation to the cause, Two for the Road Entertainment for always providing top quality comedians, Mark Encinias for providing the after comedy musical entertainment, Molly Gearhart of American Graffiti Graphics for design and layout for the flyers and posters, the Media for helping us promote this show, CF Maier for providing and installing the portable stage, all the great people that come out to support us, and most importantly, to all the businesses who support their employees who are Honkers or who are a Honker themselves.

Thank You!
