IWU to Host Comedy Band Hard 'N Phirm

September 6, 20006

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - Illinois Wesleyan University will welcome comedy band Hard 'N Phirm to the Hansen Student Center on Friday, Sept. 15, at 8 p.m.

Sponsored by the Office of Student Activities, the event is free and open to the public.

Featuring two entertainers, Mike Hardwick and Chris Phirman, Hard 'N Phirm presents a blend of comedy, music and video.  Their work ranges from songs about the carbon cycle and the mathematical constant pi to "Rodeohead," a bluegrass medley of songs originally performed by the band Radiohead.  Their album, Horses and Grasses, also pays musical tribute to the "American Dinosaurs" and "Moose Lodge."

Hard 'N Phirm has been featured on MTV and television shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live and VH1's I Love the '80s.  The duo has also performed live at such venues as the Aspen Comedy Festival and Seattle's Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival.
