Heywood Bank's act is not
the normal stand-up act of male-female relationship jokes and audience-member bashing. He
intersperses his humorous observations of life with madcap songs containing hilarious
lyrics and routines.
Dressed in a plaid jacket and wearing dark-rimmed
glasses, he doesn't need off-color jokes to make people laugh. It is a show to which you
can bring your kids or your grandmother.
Heywood has been featured in "Rolling Stone Magazine" and
"People Magazine." He won First Place in the Johnnie
Walker Comedy Search Contest.
Heywood Banks has appeared on A&E's "Evening
at the Improv," MTV's "1/2 Hour Comedy Hour," CNN's "Hollywood
Minute," "Caroline's Comedy Hour," "Entertainment Tonight,"
"Showtime Comedy Club Network," "Dr. Demento Show," "12th Annual
HBO Young Comedians Special with Paul Rodriguez" and
Also, you may have seen him in the Harmony House television commercials.

What others say --
"Heywood's act is a visual bombardment. Heywood
Banks is a geek. One part science lab, one part 'The Day After'. The man is a
walking, talking computer error."
Night Sites & Sounds:
"A complete and utter lack of
self-consciousness may well be the most descriptive characterization of
Banks. How could anyone who wears an ill-fitting plaid jacket, a tie from hell,
one black and one brown shoe, shop glasses and a hairstyle from the LSD Beauticians
Academy possibly have any hang-ups about self-image?
Songs are sung with inimitable abandon. Between
ditties, he partakes in audience involvement. Heywood's show is well-suited for an entire
family's viewing and would be enjoyed by all ages." -- Eric N. Jansson
"Your brand of humor is ideal for a business
environment free of ethnic or racial slurs and free of abusive or offensive
language. Comshare employees have constantly bombarded me with praise for the fantastic
evening of entertainment they experienced at the Kick-Off."
-- Don P. Corfman, Director of Human Resources
Boehringer Mannheim Diagnostics:
"People are still talking about you. It could
not have been better. You made each one of them feel good and comfortable with your keen
and clean wit! It takes a genius these days to create clean but hilarious material."
-- Karen R. McJunkin, Product Manager
"You demonstrate the appeal and drawing power
of a comedian who is incredibly funny and whose humor is clean. You confirm the tradition
of Red Skelton, Jack Benny, Bob Hope and other great comedians who never needed to shock
an audience into laughter through profanity to be successful. You accomplished no mean
feat by reaching everyone in the room." -- Kenneth D. Levy, Director of Marketing
The Battle of Tippecanoe Outdoor Drama:
"We would like to express our delight with
your wonderfully funny and outrageous performance. First and foremost, it was funny.
Equally as important, it was clean and family-oriented, leaving no one embarrassed.
Personally, I am most appreciative of the
professional manner in which you do business, and the easy nature that accompanies your
business dealings." -- Ken Double, Director, Marketing/Public Relations
