Bradley Bean and Jackson Bailey to Display Talents at Dimensions on April 1

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – The Dimensions program at Gardner-Webb University is pleased to announce Bean and Bailey, the hilarious comedy duo, as its distinguished guests. Bean and Bailey will entertain students and others on Tuesday, April 1 at 9:25 a.m. in Stewart Hall, located inside the Tucker Student Center.

Bradley Bean and Jackson Bailey first met in 1992, when they were both freshmen living in their Carson-Newman College (Tenn.) dorm. Along with other mutual friends, the two began scripting funny sketches and making videos in their leisure time.  After college, they both went their separate ways to pursue careers in different fields but in 1999, the two decided to reunite and take their act on the road.

“Bean and Bailey have been a regular feature of the Dimensions program at Gardner-Webb University for several years,” said Dr. Tracy Jessup, vice president for Christian Life and Service and senior minister to the University. “Students always enjoy their talent, humor and creativity. Since both are graduates of a sister institution of Christian higher education, they relate well to our students.”

Bean and Bailey now have over 14 years of performing experience under their belt and have brought family friendly entertainment to churches, theaters, cruise ships and college campuses all around the United States and Canada. 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, doughnuts, Michael Jackson and Elvis, to name a few.
