He's A Swami. He's A Comedian. He's Both!


The puns and the laughs just keep coming when Steve Bhaerman takes the stage. 

Sometimes he's Steve, and sometimes he's the alter ego Swami Beyondanonda, but it's always comedy with a big heart. 

Bhaerman/Beyondanonda is the creator of such terms as the "daily laughsitive" (say it out loud) and the "right to laugh movement."  The show played last week in Arcata and plays this weekend in Eugene and Ashland... Steve/Swami visits our studio for the first time in years to talk about the hard work of making people laugh.
