Brandon Vestal's comedy has been referred to as "extremely powerful" and it's been used by thousands to make the world a better place.

Vestal brings his comedic talents to the Auburn Avenue Theater at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Vestal was the winner of the Hollywood Comedy Festival, crowned "Best of the West" at the Detroit Comedy Festival, a finalist at the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, and featured at the Asheville Comedy Festival two years running.

He has appeared on NBC's "Last Comic Standing", "Man Up Stand Up", and "Comedy Time TV". He also can be heard on XM/ Sirius's "Blue Collar" and "Raw Dog" channels as well as "The Bob & Tom Show".

Vestal's low key, cynical, deeply personal and honest style has made him a fast favorite in the comedy world.
