Bradley Bean and Jackson Bailey met in 1992 at Carson-Newman University where they were both freshmen living in the same dorm. Along with mutual friends, they began using their leisure time to make funny videos and comedy sketches.
After college they both went their separate ways and explored other career opportunities until 1999, when Bean and Bailey began the transition to comedy as a profession and were given the opportunity to take their humor to college campuses across the country.
From 4 campus shows in 1999, to 47+ states, 3 countries and thousands of shows later, Bean and Bailey are enjoying a bright career in making people both laugh and think.
Now with almost 20 years of performing comedy, music and speaking under their belt, Bean and Bailey have been entertaining audiences at events such as: Fundraisers, Church families, Student's, Women’s, Men’s, Marriage, Singles, Colleges and Corporate events, as well as Theaters, Cruise Ships and Colleges across the United States and Canada. Bean and Bailey are enthusiastically received as a refreshing alternative in today’s field of comedy.
The Bean and Bailey show includes everything from stand-up comedy to musical songs and parodies, all wrapped up in a quirky friendship between Bean (an organized conservative personality) and Bailey (a random free spirit). They discuss all the important things of life, such as:Wal-Mart Greeters, American History, Love, Dating, Marriage, Kids, Doughnuts, Michael Jackson, Elvis, and The Bible, just to name a few.
What will they come up with next? From the responses they are getting from their appearance on the first season of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”, their current play on Satellite XM radio, the family entertainment they’ve provided on Disney cruises, their performances for countless faith based organizations, college campuses, and corporations, we are sure you’ll be seeing a lot of Bean and Bailey.
IT’S MORE THAN JUST ENTERTAINMENT
We believe that Humor is a gift from God that brings people together. Laughter tightens bonds, helps rebuild relationships, and it breaks down barriers so that we can listen. Our goal is to be a role player for your event, using God’s gift of comedy as a vehicle to get you where you want to go. We have years of experience in multiple settings such as: Fundraisers, Church families, Youth, Women’s events, Men’s conferences, Marriage, Singles, Colleges and Corporate events. We love to share a biblical or motivational message, or just make you laugh…very hard.
Bean and Bailey’s mission is to bring clean, wholesome humor to audiences across America. According to Bean, “Laughter has the power to bring unity to groups of people, as well as healing to individuals who are hurting. It is such a blessing to us when we see this happen at our comedy show.” Bailey states, “I may not be the sharpest spoon in the drawer, but I do know the Bible is true when it says that “laughter is a good medicine.”
