Stars of radio's "Bob and Tom Comedy Show" will take the stage of Mayo Civic Center 's Presentation Hall Feb. 15.

Tim Bedore , whose "Vague but True" segment has long been popular on the radio show, will headline, along with Drew Hastings , Tim Wilson and Chick McGee .

Bedore is a Chicago native who grew up in Wisconsin and has spent years on radio, perfecting goofy gags and developing features like "The Bible According to Tim" and "The Hitler Diaries." In addition to his gig on the Bob and Tom show, Bedore continues to headline at comedy clubs from coast to coast.

Hastings stands 6-foot-6, making him one of the tallest comics in captivity. He has appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and had his own Comedy Central special "Irked and Miffed." He called a recent comedy tour "Farmageddon" after moving from California to a cattle farm in Ohio.

Wilson is from Georgia, where he did his first paying show as an impressionist at Fort Benning when he was 11. He later tried his hand at music and sports writing. Eventually he gave comedy clubs a try and found his true calling.


McGee is known as the one and only Mr. Obvious on the Bob and Tom show, where he has also handled sports and commercial duties.
