Music Comedy Impressions
North Carolina-based Kier has spent 20+ years touring non-stop, sometimes as a singer-songwriter, sometimes as a comedian, and more often than not a little of both! He is also a speaker, and is probably the only guy in Nashville to have played a writer's night at the famed Bluebird Cafe, headlined at Zanies Comedy Club and had a concert at Vanderbilt University all in the same year. Kier loves to make music and to make people laugh - all over the United States and beyond. Whether performing for corporate executives, college students, retirees at casinos, drunk people at comedy clubs, good ol' boys at the rodeo, rich people on cruise ships, not-so-rich people on cruise ships, uptight folks, or cool folks - EVERYONE has fun at a performance by Kier!
>> Career Highlights
"He was great! Our group really enjoyed his performance. I believe is just about the only entertainer I have worked with that I have talked with so much. He called me a couple of weeks ago and asked a bunch of questions about our business and who would be at the event. You could tell he had a good handle on what we did, based on how he incorporated it into his performance. We spoke again briefly just prior to him going on stage to "personalize" a regular part of his act. It was wonderful! He is definitely very talented and proved to be an excellent choice for our group.
