St. Marys comic to perform at weekend concert

February 29, 2012

Photo submitted St. Marys native Brad Leviski, whose stage name is "Bubba Bradley," will perform his family-friendly comedy act at Saturday's concert featuring The Kentucky Headhunters and Confederate Railroad, held at St. Marys Area High School.

Area residents attending Saturday’s Kentucky Headhunters/Confederate Railroad concert will also be treated to the comedy stylings of St. Marys native Brad Leviski, who goes by the stage name of “Bubba Bradley.”
Leviski said he had always thought about being a comic, but never really got the opportunity until about three and a half years ago.
"I was working at a bar in Montana. I was the head bouncer. A buddy of mine knew a comic in L.A. and had him come in and do a show. They wanted somebody to warm up the crowd for five minutes and I volunteered," Leviski said.
"The comic loved me. I did a second warm-up for him and he said, 'We're leaving on Tuesday. I want to take you on the road.'"
Leviski said the comic helped mentor him and showed him the ropes of the comedy business. After getting a manager and an agent, Leviski began doing some shows, which eventually led to a big coup for such a short time in the business.
"The first show I ever did was in Washington at Joker's Comic Club. The manager soon after that got me an audition for 'Last Comic Standing' on NBC,'" Leviski said. "I made it through the first three episodes.
