Visitor's Guide: Salt Lake City

BENGT WASHBURN seen on Conan & Winner of the San Francisco Comedy Competition


Bengt Washburn (pronounced "bent") is a self-proclaimed unaccomplished Mormon. His act has been described as intelligent, whereas Bengt himself is usually described as ditzy, neurotic and logistically impaired. Bengt’s show is constructed out of his mistakes, all the details of the “carefully crafted series of unfortunate decisions” that are his life. A prolific comic, he has produced a DVD, “Mormon Meets World”, and two CDs, “Get Bengt” and “Hell Bengt”. Both CDs can be heard on XMRadio. Television Appearances include CBS – The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Comedy Central – Live at Gotham. Bengt is the Winner of the San Francisco International Comedy Competition. Bengt entertained the Troops in Iraq. His ever-evolving act is sometimes topical, often autobiographical, at times poignant, mostly true and of course very, very, funny. He’s a one-of-a-kind gem on the American comedy landscape.
