What to Expect
I'm a baby boomer and I combine the experiences growing up in the sixties with the problems of the present time. I don't do blue material but I like to do clever innuendo.
I'm risque without being raunchy, naughty but not nasty.
Wes Martens could best be described as a curmudgeon in training. This east coast transplanted entrepreneur didn't start performing until he was fifty. “That’s when things
started to get funny”. Wes' favorite topics include his marriage
of 39 years, getting older and the absurdities of modern life in general. After owning his own business for 30 years Wes decided to try his hand at acting. He has appeared in commercials, short films and various plays as well as his standup performances. All his combined endeavors have pretty much earned him squat.
Does he expect to be a star one day? Says Wes, "I have fantasies: but not delusions".
Additional Booking Notes
Like anybody else I appreciate good lighting, a low stage, a packed house, a wireless mic and a close-in intimate crowd that came to laugh.
Changes a lot. I do topical jokes from the news then throw them out as time goes by. I don't drop any "F" bombs or make graphic sexual references.
