Ft Campbell, KY- Happy Hour is Rolling In………ADDED BONUS- Bernie McGrenahan and staff are adding a second winner for Ft Campbell, thanks for the tremendous turnout!

I am so happy to be here at Ft Campbell.  Thank you Tiffany, Karen, Rex, Matthew, Abrell, Tony, Joe and EVERYONE else who did for working on this tour.  Ft Campbell was one of the bases on my radar that I always wanted to perform at, and now finally had the chance.  Almost 2,000 of your soldiers filled the room ‘mandatorily’…but you still FILLED IT!  laugh. I hope my Comedy ‘With a Message’ show brought you some laughs and also left you with some thought.   I want you soldiers to know I care about you and hope I provided a few laughs this week.   Thank you for my Freedom!   HooRah!!!!

Pre-show, cool soldiers, & one great team!  Not sure why the Colonel was clipped out of this photo! I better find out and fix it!

  5. SGT Andrew Mitchell

    Without a doubt this is the best way to reach out to Soldiers in a game we know so well, comedy. I would sit through Bernie’s briefings the entire duty day. He keeps everyone laughing hard and thinking harder about making better choices and getting help when you need it. Thank you again Bernie from Ft. Campbell “Air Assault!”

  31. cory breegle

    I just want the book

  32. SGT Bond, Melissa

    I enjoyed the show. One of the funniest parts of your stand up was when you asked one of the Soldiers (from NY) where he was from. He told you the Bronx. Oh, yeah whereabouts, he couldn’t name a street. LOL…silence

  33. Spc Kevin Kitchens

    Truly a great show with an awesome message with very funny material and lots of variety for everyone. You are absolutely right about not missing a moment of your life by drowning yourself in alcohol or drugs. You cannot let your life be consumed by outside influences. Family will have your back no matter how low in life you can get and they will always be there to talk or help you no matter what happens in life.

    It is an awesome thing that you can be there for your brother now. I understand that having a special needs child is hard but a blessing and you have to cherish and enjoy every moment you can with them. I have an Autistic son and a daughter that was born with multiple birth defects. And yes the road has been long and hard between doctor’s appointment and many long nights of crying and pain we cannot control. But I look back and see how far they have come and grown and realize that I am truly blessed to have them. No matter what I would do anything for them and anything I could to keep them safe and keep them from harm and always make sure that they have someone to talk to because that is what families do.

    It truly is awesome that you get to spend time with your brother and that he looks forward to your call and spending time with you. It also is a blessing to take care of someone with special needs and have the patience and understanding that a lot of people don’t know and will never know.
    Thank you for the show great way to start off a week!

  68. James Fish

    Great show today. Like some others, I thought that this was going to be another lame briefing. You showed us that comedy is a great way to reach out and send a message. Incidentally, all the above people that posted all told me that they did not want a copy of the book…ha ha

  69. Michael street

    Great show it hit home with me thank you HOOAH

  76. Joshua feindel

    Great Show! Thanks .

  77. SSG Bohon

    Lots of laughs, a few tears & a very powerful message. Hopefully your experiences will impact at least one lost soul that doesn’t know they need help. As a leader we read the daily PLRs and all too often alcohol is a factor to the loss of a valuable young Service Member.

  78. rivera

    Great show and the perfect way to deliver a message to soldiers I lmao great

  79. SGT Deana Hill

    Bernie, I was there. Great show! Thanks for taking the time to come see us.

  80. SPC Alex Brown

    Fantastic presentation, humor and creation of a safe space to think about a difficult subject for some. Thanks for sharing your story to help us realize we may not be alone when dealing with substance abuse and that there’s time to make changes before things get much worse. Thanks for coming!

  81. Jake Dodd

    Hey Bernie, It was a real pleasure to have you at Ft. Campbell. You genuinely had me laughing at first & relating deeply toward the end. You made a lot of sense while getting our attention. Your show was a real treat & not what I expected but definitely needed. You made important & valid points while actually keeping us very entertained. Quite a combination delivering humor & relevance. Thank You.
